Privacy Policy

About This Policy

This Privacy Policy is available under a Creative Commons Sharealike License. For more info on what that means, see the “Attribution and re-use” section at the bottom of this page.

Your Privacy

Your privacy is critically important to us, so at Exygy we have a few fundamental principles. If you find content on the Exygy website you believe violates our Privacy Policy, please contact us immediately.

We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. We stand against services and organizations that ask you for your private information such as your gender or income level for no important 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 on-going operation of one of our services.

Exygy Inc.

“Exygy” operates a website at exygy.com. It is Exygy’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website. If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Exygy 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. Exygy’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Exygy’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Exygy may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Exygy also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on articles published. Exygy 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 blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Exygy’s websites choose to interact with Exygy in ways that require Exygy to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Exygy gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for our newsletter at Exygy.com to provide their name and email address.

Aggregated Statistics

Exygy may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, Exygy may monitor the most popular pages and articles on the Exygy.com site. Exygy may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Exygy does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Business Transfers

If Exygy, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Exygy goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Exygy may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Any Ads appearing on our website may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Exygy and does not cover the use of cookies by any such advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Exygy may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and at Exygy’s sole discretion. Exygy encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.

Protection of Information

Exygy 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 Exygy’s behalf or to provide services available at Exygy’s 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 Exygy’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Exygy 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, Exygy discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Exygy believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Exygy, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of an Exygy website and have supplied your email address, Exygy 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 Exygy and our services. We primarily use our website 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), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Exygy takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Email Communication

Exygy sends a newsletter and occasional marketing updates that we believe will be useful to individuals that subscribe to our website or blog, attend our events, or submit contact forms. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the link provided in every email. We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law.   

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Exygy uses cookies to help Exygy identify and track visitors, their usage of Exygy website, and their website access preferences.

Exygy visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Exygy’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Exygy’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.
