Your privacy is critically important to us. At Cooleaf 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 on-going operation of one of our services.
We aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.
Like most website operators, Cooleaf 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. Cooleaf’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Cooleaf’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Cooleaf may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Cooleaf also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users booking activities on Cooleaf.com. Cooleaf 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 user booking information are visible and disclosed to the providers of the activities that are booked.
GATHERING OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Certain visitors to Cooleaf’s websites choose to interact with Cooleaf in ways that require Cooleaf to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Cooleaf gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at Cooleaf.com to provide their name and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Cooleaf – by booking a Service, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Cooleaf collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Cooleaf.
Cooleaf 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. Personal financial information such as credit card numbers are not stored on Cooleaf’s server in any way.
Cooleaf may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, Cooleaf may monitor the most popular activities on the Cooleaf.com site or use algorithms to help detect fraudulent behavior on Cooleaf.com. Cooleaf may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Cooleaf does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
PROTECTION OF CERTAIN PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Cooleaf 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 Cooleaf’s behalf or to provide services available at Cooleaf’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 Cooleaf’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
Cooleaf 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, Cooleaf discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Cooleaf believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Cooleaf, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of Cooleaf.com and have supplied your email address, Cooleaf 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 Cooleaf. 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. We also reserve the right to access your information related to your account in order to resolve your request or problem.
Cooleaf takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
