Like most website operators, Flusta 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. Flusta’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Flusta’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Flusta may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Flusta also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Flusta does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Flusta’s websites choose to interact with Flusta in ways that require Flusta to gather personally- identifying information. The amount and type of information that Flusta gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at flusta.com to provide a username and email address. From time to time, those who engage in transactions with Flusta will be asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Flusta collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Flusta. Flusta 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.
Flusta may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Flusta may monitor the most popular blogs on the flusta.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Flusta may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Flusta does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Flusta 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 Flusta’s behalf or to provide services available at Flusta’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 Flusta’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Flusta 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, Flusta discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Flusta believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Flusta, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Flusta website and have supplied your email address, Flusta 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 Flusta and our products. 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. Flusta takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
