Privacy Policy

This privacy policy is available under a Creative Commons Sharealike license.

Your privacy is important to us, and it is Pidge’s policy to respect the privacy of our users regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites and apps.

Pidge does not ask you for personal information unless it is required to provide certain additional service.

Pidge does not wilfully disclose the personal information of our users to anyone except to comply to applicable law, provide the services of the website, or protect our rights. Regarding applicable law, Pidge will only respond to authorized and written requests and will resist illegal requests for personal information. Pidge will notify users immediately if we believe their personal information is disclosed in any unauthorized way.

Website Visitors

Pidge encourages data safety and has a mission to ensure it maintains transparency regarding data usage. Pidge does currently utilize certain third-party services and tools which may collect personally identifiable information such as IP addresses, but only insofar as necessary for the provision of service. To improve your security, Pidge recommends the use of up to date browsers and operating systems.
Like most website operators, Pidge collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers, apps and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Pidge’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Pidge’s visitors use its website and apps. From time to time, Pidge may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website and apps, or provide non-personally identifying aggregate information to third parties.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Pidge’s website and apps choose to interact with Pidge in ways that require Pidge to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Pidge gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Pidge are occasionally asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. Users who use the team and scheduling functions will indicate their availability at different times and places. In each case, Pidge collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Pidge. Pidge does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Users can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain activities.

Open Data

Pidge may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites and apps. For instance, Pidge may monitor the most popular clubs or events. Pidge may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Pidge does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

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

Business Transfers

If Pidge, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Pidge 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 Pidge may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy. At any time, users can delete all content and personally identifiable information from the site.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Pidge may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Pidge’s sole discretion. Pidge encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a Pidge account, you should also check your account’s dashboard for alerts to these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such changes.
