Your privacy is very important to us. At WPBeginner we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
It is Pickup WP's to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Pickup WP 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. Pickup WP's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Pickup WP's visitors use its website. From time to time, Pickup WP may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Pickup WP also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Pickup WP 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.
Certain visitors to Pickup WP's websites choose to interact with Pickup WP in ways that require Pickup WP to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Pickup WP 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 WPBeginner updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Pickup WP collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Pickup WP. Pickup WP does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Pickup WP 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 Pickup WP's behalf or to provide services available at Pickup WP'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 Pickup WP's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Pickup WP 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, Pickup WP discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Pickup WP believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Pickup WP, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Pickup WP website and have supplied your email address, Pickup WP 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 Pickup WP and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs 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. Pickup WP takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Pickup WP, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Pickup WP 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 Pickup WP may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
