These features and scripts will collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on the Site, and will set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by the applicable third party social media website or hosted directly on the Site.
Your interactions with these social media features and widgets, as well as your interactions with the social media websites themselves, are governed by the privacy policies of the applicable social media websites.
If you submit personally identifiable information in a comment on a blog post or on any applicable social media website, you should be aware that the personally identifiable information that you submit can be read, collected or used by others and could be used to send you unsolicited messages or otherwise contact you without your consent or desire.
We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information that you choose to submit in these forums.

If necessary, we will use personally identifiable information to enforce our terms, policies and legal agreements, to comply with court orders and warrants, and assist law enforcement agencies, to collect debts, prevent fraud, misappropriation, infringements, identity thefts and any other misuse of the Service, and to take any action in any legal dispute and proceeding.
We commit to process personally identifiable information solely for the purposes described in this policy.
Sharing Personally Identifiable Information with Others

Aggregated and Analytical Information

Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
Cookies are small files that a web server sends to a user’s device, when the user browses online.
Your device removes session cookies when you close your browser session. Persistent cookies last for longer periods. You can view the expiry date of each cookie, through your browser settings.
We use both types. We use persistent cookies to remember your log-in details and make it easier for you to log-in the next time you access the Service. We use this type of cookies and Session Cookies for additional purposes, to facilitate the use of the Service’s features and tools.
Every browser allows you to manage your cookies preferences. You can block or remove certain cookies, or all of them through your browser settings. Please bear in mind that blocking or removing cookies will have an effect on your user experience with our Service/ For example, you will need to re-enter your log-in details, or even prevent you from using features of the Service.
We also use clear gifs which are tiny graphics with a unique identifier (but do not retain any personally identifiable information), which are used to count user or visitor visits/clicks to web pages while using the Service.
We and our hosting services implement systems, applications and procedures to secure your personally identifiable information, to minimize the risks of theft, damage, loss of information, or unauthorized access or use of information.
These measures provide sound industry standard security. However, although we make efforts to protect your privacy, we cannot guarantee that the Service will be immune from any wrongdoings, malfunctions, unlawful interceptions or access, or other kinds of abuse and misuse.
We do periodical assessments of our data processing and privacy practices, to make sure that we comply with this policy, to update the policy when we believe that we need to, and to verify that we display the policy properly and in an accessible manner. If you have any concerns about the way we process your personally identifiable information, you are welcome to contact our data protection officer at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will look into your query and make good-faith efforts to resolve any existing or potential dispute with you.
From time to time, we will update this policy. If the updates have minor if any consequences, they will take effect 7 days after we post a notice on the Service’s website. Substantial changes will be effective 30 days after we initially posted the notice.
Until the new policy takes effect, if it materially reduces the protection of your privacy right under the then-existing policy you can choose not to accept it and terminate your use of the Service. Continuing to use the Service after the new policy takes effect means that you agree to the new policy. Note that if we need to adapt the policy to legal requirements, the new policy will become effective immediately or as required by law.
