Your privacy is very important to us. At Method13 LLC we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
- 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 our site.
Method13 LLC. (“Method13”) operates several websites including nobrandsan.com, 5280breadworks.com, and many more. It is Method13 LLC’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Method13 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. Method13’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Method13’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Method13 may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Method13 also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Method13 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 are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Method13’s websites choose to interact with Method13 in ways that require Method13 to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Method13 gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Method13 collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Method13. Method13 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.
Method13 may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Method13 may monitor the most popular pages on the method13.com/staging site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Method13 may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Method13 does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Method13 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 Method13’s behalf or to provide services available at Method13’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 Method13’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Method13 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, Method13 discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Method13 believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Method13, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Method13 website and have supplied your email address, Method13 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 Method13 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. Method13 takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Method13, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Method13 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 Method13 may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
