Our policy applies only to the Services we provide. It doesn’t apply to services you use to obtain our Services, to services of others that you might find by using our Services, or to other services that may coexist with our Services or interact with it either on a mobile device or on the Internet (such as Facebook or Twitter). To learn more about other companies’ policies, please consult them.
What information do we collect and use?
How do we use your information?
We will use your information in a variety of ways in order to provide and improve the Services, to personalize the Services to you, to deliver content, to connect you with other services you use, and to share certain information externally as we discuss below. In addition, we may use information about groups of users, without focusing on any particular user’s information, for a wide variety of business reasons, such as to study usage and traffic patterns, to test different aspects of our technology and Services, to analyze and describe our business, and to change our Services.
What Information May We Reveal?
We may publicly reveal personal information that you have publicly revealed on our Services, such as comments, annotations, and other information that you explicitly ask us to share or publicize. We may share any information with other services that you have relationships with, based on information you have given us about those service relationships. We may engage others to work with us to administer and provide our technology and Services. These third-parties may have access to your information only for the purpose of assisting us, and we would furnish them your information only with an obligation of confidentiality commensurate with our own policies. We may reveal aggregated information of our users and non-identifying information about any user with others for any purpose. Information that we collect from our users, including personal information, is a business asset. This means that if we go out of business or seek bankruptcy protection, or if another company acquires us, someone else may take possession of the information. We may reveal information to satisfy or comply with any law, regulation or legal process or to respond to lawful requests, including subpoenas, litigation discovery requests, warrants or court orders; to protect our property, rights and safety and the rights, property and safety of third parties or the public in general; and to prevent or stop activity we consider to be illegal or unethical.
The Security of Your Information
We take reasonable measures to protect the information that we collect from or about you from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Please be aware, however, that no method of transmitting information over the Internet or storing information is completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of any information.

Modifying Your Information
If you want us to delete your account, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your request. We’ll take steps to delete your name and email address records as soon as is practicable, but some information may remain in archived/backup copies for our records or as otherwise required by law.
Our Policy Toward Children
Our Services are not directed to children under 13 and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we learn that we have collected personal information of a child under 13 we will take steps to delete such information from our files as soon as possible, which may require terminating an account.
We may modify and revise this policy from time to time. If we make any material changes to this policy, we’ll notify you of such changes by posting them on our website or by sending you an email or other notification, and we’ll indicate when such changes will become effective.
