Your privacy is critically important to us. At FAVO AS we have a few fundamental principles:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
- 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. </li>
- In our products and services, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, kept private, and permanently deleted.
Like most website operators, FAVO AS 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. FAVO AS’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how FAVO AS’ visitors or users use its website. From time to time, FAVO AS may release non-personally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
FAVO AS also collects potentially personally identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on PinToMind-accounts. FAVO AS only discloses logged in user addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally identifying information as described below, except that account user addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the Service.
Gathering of Personally Identifying Information
Certain visitors to FAVO AS’ webservices choose to interact with FAVO AS in ways that require FAVO AS to gather personally identifying information. The amount and type of information that FAVO AS gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at PinToMind to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with FAVO AS – by setting up an account, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, FAVO AS collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the user’s interaction with FAVO AS. FAVO AS does not disclose personally identifying information other than as described below.
FAVO AS may collect statistics about the behavior of users and visitors to its websites. FAVO AS may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, FAVO AS does not disclose personally identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally Identifying Information
FAVO AS 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 FAVO AS’ behalf or to provide services available at FAVO AS’ 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 FAVO AS’ services, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. FAVO AS 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, FAVO AS discloses potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when FAVO AS believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of FAVO AS, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a PinToMind-account and have supplied your email address, FAVO AS 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 FAVO AS and our products. We primarily use our various products, blogs and newsletters 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. FAVO AS takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information.
If FAVO AS, or a substantial part of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that FAVO AS 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 FAVO AS may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Third Party Links
Occasionally, strictly at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products of services on our site. These third party sites and services have independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.
