collect from you, how we might use it, how you can review or change the Personal Information (as defined below) that you provided to us, how we may change this policy, and the steps we take to ensure that your Personal Information is protected. The types of Personal Information collected are described below.
By using any of the Services, we may ask you for certain information referred to as “Personal Information,” which includes information that pertains to your identity or that of your authorized user or anyone you are authorized to represent in connection with a transaction such as usernames and emails addresses as well as github usernames. Our third-party vendors collect this information from you when you access or use the Services. We do not have control over how our third-party vendors use such Personal Information, and you agree to release us from claims, demands, losses, legal actions, and cots in connection with such third-party usage of your Personal Information, including any security breach of such third-party systems, to the extent permitted by law. Below lists the various categories of Personal Information that we may collect and the purposes for which we use such Personal Information. You may be required to provide Personal Information to access or use certain Services. If you do not provide the requested Personal Information, you may not be able to access or use the features of the Services where such information is requested. Pursuant to the foregoing, we may collect the following types of information from you: name and email addresses and github usernames. In particular, we collect the following categories of Personal Information from you:
In addition to the information listed in Section 5, there may be other instances in which we collect information from you that is more general in nature (“general information”). Such information may include your Internet Protocol (IP) address, which enables us to identify your computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) network. Your device has an IP address, which is required in order for you to communicate with others via the Internet. Such general information, including the click stream data and cookies, as mentioned below, may be collected from you whenever you access the site, whether or not you provide us with any Personal Information.
We will primarily use the Personal Information you provide and any general information we receive from you via third-party vendors to provide products and services to you and for our internal purposes. We may obtain information indirectly from Services you access, and from observing your activities while using our Services.
We use the collected data for various purposes:
To provide and maintain our Service
To notify you about changes to our Service
To allow you to participate in interactive features of our Service when you choose to do so
To provide customer support
To gather analysis or valuable information so that we can improve our Service
To monitor the usage of our Service and maintain and secure your account
To gather your information from third-party vendors as described above
To detect, prevent and address technical issues
To respond to law enforcement requests and as required by applicable law, court order, or government regulations
To detect or prevent security risks or other illegal activities
Except as otherwise provided herein, we do not sell, rent, barter, or otherwise give away user lists, users; names, email addresses, or mailing addresses so that advertisers may send you advertisements or other solicitations.
For your security, we recommend you logout of your account when not accessing our Services. You and your authorized users are responsible for your activities while working with our Services.
We may retain Usage Data for internal analysis and accounting purposes. “Usage Data” is data collected automatically either generated by the use of the Service or from the Service infrastructure itself (for example, the duration of usage of Services). Usage Data is generally retained for a shorter period of time, except when this data is used to strengthen the security or to improve the functionality of our Service, or we are legally obligated to retain this data for longer periods.
In order to protect both the Personal Information and the general information that we receive from you through our Services, we have implemented various security measures, to protect your Information and to limit the risk that it will be accessed without authorization, including use of certain industry standard technologies and practices. That said, we cannot guarantee the security of such Information, particular via the systems of our third-party vendors. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time. No security system is perfect. If we learn of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you via email, phone, physical mail, or by a posting on your Service account page. In addition to the security measures referenced above, your Service account is protected by a password for your privacy and security. You must prevent unauthorized access to your account and information by selecting and protecting your password appropriately and limiting access to your computer or device and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account.
Please keep in mind, however, that whenever you give out Personal Information online there is a risk that third parties may intercept and use that information. While we strive to protect your Personal Information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online. By using the Services, you expressly acknowledge and agree that we do not guarantee the security of any data provided to or received by us through the Services or any third-party vendor and that any Personal Information, general information, or other data or information received from you through the Services is provided to us at your own risk, which you expressly assume.
Other than to the third-party companies referenced in this policy or other third-parties who provide services in connection with the Services, and except for aggregated and de-identified data, or as otherwise described in this policy, we do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your Personal Information or general information to third parties without informing you in advance.
We will release personal or general information without your consent for security purposes, when required by law, or to prevent imminent harm to any person or entity. We will disclose personal or general information upon receipt of a court order or subpoena, or to cooperate with a law enforcement investigation, which may include responding to requests and court orders from jurisdictions outside the United States. We fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal activities. We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we in good faith believe to be unlawful, as determined in our sole discretion. Release of your personal data for security purposes, as described in this agreement to any person or entity under any circumstances shall be based on a determination made solely by us, exercising our own discretion, permission for which is expressly granted by you to us in accordance with this policy.
Our Services are not applicable to anyone under the age of 18 ("Children"). You agree that by using the Services, neither you nor any of your authorized users are under the age of 18. If we become aware that our third-party vendors have collected Personal Information from children without verification of parental consent, we will take steps to remove that information.

Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us via email: Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your Personal Information. You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
· Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected Personal Information or an authorized representative, which may include:
· Your name
· Additional information depending upon the type of request and the sensitivity of the information.
· Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it. We cannot respond to your request or provide you with Personal Information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the Personal Information relates to you.
Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. However, we will consider requests made through your password protected account sufficiently verified when the request relates to Personal Information associated with that specific account, provided the functionality is available. We will only use Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request. Response Timing and Format We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will inform you in writing. If you have an account with us, we may deliver our written response to that account, provided that such functionality is available. If you do not have an account with us, or the functionality is not available for your account we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request's receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your Personal Information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance. We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
