PRIVACY POLICY

Your privacy is very important to us. At 321 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.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, 321 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. 321’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how 321’s visitors use its website. From time to time, 321 may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

321 also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. 321 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 321’s websites choose to interact with 321 in ways that require 321 to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that 321 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 321 updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, 321 collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with 321. 321 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.

Aggregated Statistics

321 may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, 321 may monitor the most popular pages on the list25.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. 321 may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, 321 does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

321 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 321’s behalf or to provide services available at 321’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 321’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. 321 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, 321 discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when 321 believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of 321, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an 321 website and have supplied your email address, 321 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 321 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. 321 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. 321 uses cookies to help 321 identify and track visitors, their usage of 321 website, and their website access preferences. 321 visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using 321’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of 321’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, 321 may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in 321’s sole discretion. 321 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.
