It is the Webmaster's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website. Your privacy is critically important to us. At this website we have a few fundamental principles:
» We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We disagree with services that ask users for private information like 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 one of our services.
Like most website operators, the Webmaster 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. The Webmaster's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use the website. From time to time, the Webmaster will use non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the website for internal use.
The Webmaster also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blog. The Webmaster only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that they use and disclose 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 the website choose to interact with it in ways that require the Webmaster to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that the Webmaster gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for our newsletter at https://tech.brandonyuong.com to provide a name, phone number, and email address. In each case, The Webmaster collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitors' interaction with the website. The Webmaster 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 receiving a reply from us.
The Webmaster may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, the Webmaster may monitor the most popular blog posts on https://tech.brandonyuong.com. The Webmaster may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, the Webmaster does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
The Webmaster 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 the Webmaster's behalf or to provide services available at this website, 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 this website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Webmaster 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, the Webmaster discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when the Webmaster believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of the Webmaster, third parties or the public at large. If you have supplied your email address, the Webmaster may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new products, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with the website and our services. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. The Webmaster takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If the Webmaster's assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that the Webmaster goes out of business or enter 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 this website may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
