Our first priority is maintaining your privacy. We follow the following guiding principles at howtofixwp.com:
- If we don’t really need it, we won’t ask you for personal information. (We hate services that ask you for information like your gender or income level without giving you a reason.)
- We won’t share your personal information with anyone else unless we have to in order to follow the law, improve our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t keep any personal information on our servers unless it’s needed to keep our website running.
Users of websites
Awesome Motive gathers non-personally-identifying information of the kind that web browsers and servers usually make accessible, such as the browser type, language choice, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The gathering of non-personally identifiable information is necessary for Awesome Motive to better understand how its visitors utilize its website. In the aggregate, Awesome Motive may from time to time reveal non-personally identifiable information. It may do this, for instance, by publishing a report on how users interact with its website.
In addition to logged-in users and visitors who leave comments on our blogs, Awesome Motive also gathers potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Only logged-in users’ and commenters’ IP addresses are shared by Awesome Motive in the same manner as other personally identifiable information, as detailed below. The only distinction is that the administrators of the blog where the remark was left may see and receive the IP addresses of blog commenters.
The Gathering of Information Identifiable Identifying a Person
Visitors to Awesome Motive’s websites may elect to engage with Awesome Motive in ways that necessitate the collection of personal information about them. The kind of contact will determine what kind and how much information Awesome Motive collects. For instance, we need a username and email address from visitors who leave comments on our blog. We gather the email addresses of those who want to receive updates from howtofixwp.com through email. In any situation, Awesome Motive only gathers such data if it is required or suitable to achieve the goals of the visitor’s engagement with Awesome Motive. Other than as mentioned herein, Awesome Motive does not release personally-identifying information. Visitors can always choose not to give information that could be used to find them, but if they do, they might not be able to do certain things on the website.
Awesome Motive may collect data on the online activity of website users. For example, to help detect spam, Awesome Motive may keep an eye on the most popular pages on the howtofixwp.com website or utilize spam that has been filtered by the Akismet service. Awesome Motive may disclose this information to the public or to other people. However, other than as stated below, Awesome Motive does not share personally-identifying information.
The Security of Some Personally Identifiable Information
Only those of Awesome Motive’s employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that need to know that information in order to process it on Awesome Motive’s behalf or to provide services available at Awesome Motive’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others, are granted access to personally-identifying and potentially personally-identifying information. By using Awesome Motive’s websites, you agree to the transfer of such information to its employees, contractors, and connected companies who may be based outside of your home country. Awesome Motive does not rent or sell to third parties any information that might be used to identify an individual. Awesome Motive only discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other governmental requests, or when Awesome Motive believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Awesome Motive, third parties, or the public at large. Awesome Motive does not disclose personally-identifying information other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above. If you have provided your email address and are a registered member of an Awesome Motive website, Awesome Motive may periodically send you an email to inform you of new features, ask for your input, or just to keep you informed about what’s happening with Awesome Motive and our products. We plan to send out as little of this sort of email as possible, as we generally utilize our numerous product blogs to provide this kind of information. We retain the right to publish comments you provide us through one of our feedback tools or via one of our support emails for the purpose of responding to you as quickly as possible and helping other users who may be experiencing the same issue. Awesome Motive does everything it can to keep unauthorized people from getting access to, using, changing, or deleting information that could be used to find or contact you.
User information would be one of the assets that are transferred or acquired by a third party if Awesome Motive or substantially all of its assets were purchased, or in the unusual event that Awesome Motive goes out of business or enters bankruptcy. You agree that this can happen and that any company that buys Awesome Motive can still use your personal information as described in this policy.
Unless they are tagged as false positives, comments and other material sent to the Akismet anti-spam service are not stored on our systems. In this case, we keep them long enough to use them to improve the service and stop more false positives from happening.
