Progressive Data Services (“Progressive Data”) operates several websites including progressivedata.io, queercoders.com, labordata.io, activistdata.com, and activistdb.com. It is Progressive Data’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Progressive Data 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. Progressive Data’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Progressive Data’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Progressive Data may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Progressive Data also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our sites. Progressive Data 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 and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Progressive Data’s websites choose to interact with Progressive Data in ways that require Progressive Data to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Progressive Data gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at Queer Coders to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Progressive Data – by purchasing our hosting services, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Progressive Data collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Progressive Data. Progressive Data 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.
Progressive Data may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Progressive Data may monitor the most popular sites we host to prevent abuse. Progressive Data may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Progressive Data does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Progressive Data 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 Progressive Data’s behalf or to provide services available at Progressive Data’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 Progressive Data’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Progressive Data 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, Progressive Data discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Progressive Data believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Progressive Data, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Progressive Data website and have supplied your email address, Progressive Data 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 Progressive Data 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. Progressive Data takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Progressive Data, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Progressive Data 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 Progressive Data may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
