Like most website operators, Unfuddle collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Unfuddle's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Unfuddle's visitors use the Unfuddle Websites. From time to time, Unfuddle may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Unfuddle also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Unfuddle does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Certain visitors to the Unfuddle Websites choose to interact with Unfuddle in ways that require Unfuddle to gather personally-identifying information. Personally-identifying information may include your name, home or work address, billing address, telephone number, age and gender. The amount and type of information that Unfuddle gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at the Website to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with Unfuddle – by purchasing access to Unfuddle Services, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process billing transactions. In each case, Unfuddle collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Unfuddle. Unfuddle does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Unfuddle may collect and analyze certain information automatically: the Internet Protocol (IP) address used to connect Your computer to the internet; login; email address; password; computer and connection information such as browser type and version, operating system, and platform; registration history; the full Uniform Resource Locators (URL) clickstream to, through, and from the Unfuddle Websites, including date and time; cookie number; pages You viewed, or what You searched for. Unfuddle may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Unfuddle may monitor the most popular features on the Unfuddle Websites. Unfuddle may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Unfuddle does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described herein.
If You are a registered user of an Unfuddle website and have supplied Your email address, Unfuddle may occasionally send You an email to provide You with information and services You request, to tell You about new features and other products and services, to solicit Your feedback, or just keep You up to date with what is going on with Unfuddle and our Services. Unfuddle primarily uses our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If You send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), Unfuddle reserves the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to Your request or to help us support other users. Unfuddle takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of personally-identifying information.
Unfuddle protects the confidentiality and security of Your personally-identifying information from loss, misuse, or unauthorized alteration by using industry-recognized security safeguards such as firewalls, coupled with carefully developed security procedures. Whenever Unfuddle asks for sensitive information, such as a credit card number or password, we protect it through the use of encryption.
Your accounts and personally-identifying information are password protected. It is Your responsibility to keep Your password confidential. Do not share this information with anyone. If You are sharing a computer with anyone, You should always log out before leaving a site or service to protect access to Your information from subsequent users.
Unfuddle sometimes contracts with outside firms, or third parties, to help provide services, such as designing a website, developing a computer program, maintaining our computer network, sending emails, registering a prospective domain name, processing online transactions or analyzing data. Unfuddle's contracts with these third parties outline the appropriate use and handling of Your information and prohibit them from using any of Your personally-identifying information for purposes unrelated to the product or service they are providing. Unfuddle requires vendors to maintain the confidentiality of the information we provide to them.
Unfuddle may report and share information about Your account to credit bureaus, consumer reporting agencies and card associations. Late payments, missed payments, or other defaults on Your account may be reflected in Your credit report and consumer report. Unfuddle may also share information with other companies, lawyers, credit bureaus, agents, government agencies and card associations in connection with issues related to fraud, credit or debt collection.
