Your privacy is very important to us. At WpCtrl we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

  • 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 on-going operation of our site.

This privacy policy document outlines the types of personal information received and collected by WpCtrl and how it is used.

Website Visitors

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

WpCtrl also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. WpCtrl 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.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to WpCtrl choose to interact with the website in ways that require WpCtrl to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that WpCtrl gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive WpCtrl updates via email, we collect their emails.

In each case, WpCtrl collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the website. WpCtrl 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.

Aggregated Statistics

WpCtrl may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, WpCtrl may monitor the most popular pages on the site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. WpCtrl may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, WpCtrl does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

WpCtrl 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 WpCtrl’s behalf, 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 the WpCtrl website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

WpCtrl 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, WpCtrl discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when WpCtrl believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of WpCtrl, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of the WpCtrl website and have supplied your email address, WpCtrl 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 WpCtrl and our products and services.

If you send us a request (for example via our contact form 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. WpCtrl takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

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. WpCtrl uses cookies to help WpCtrl identify and track visitors, their usage of the WpCtrl website, and their website access preferences. WpCtrl visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using the WpCtrl website, with the drawback that certain features of the website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If WpCtrl, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that WpCtrl 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 WpCtrl may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on WpCtrl 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 WpCtrl and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Although most changes are likely to be minor, WpCtrl may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in WpCtrl’s sole discretion. WpCtrl 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.
