Your privacy is critically important to us. We have a few fundamental principles:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the ongoing operation of one of our services.
Like most website operators, Open Labs 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. Open Labs' purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use its website. From time to time, Open Labs may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Open Labs also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our online infrastructure. Open Labs only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that users IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Open Labs' websites choose to interact with Open Labs in ways that require Open Labs to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Open Labs gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, Open Labs collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Open Labs. Open Labs does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Open Labs may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Open Labs uses services such as the Akismet service to help identify spam. Open Labs may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Open Labs does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Open Labs discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Open Labs' behalf or to provide services available at Open Labs' websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Open Labs' websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Open Labs will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Open Labs discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Open Labs believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Open Labs, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Open Labs website and have supplied your email address, Open Labs may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Open Labs and our activities related to promoting free(as in freedom, not as in beer) and open source technologies in Albania. We primarily use our blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum.Open Labs takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
