We aim to respect your privacy. At the same time, it is necessary for us to store and process some data so that:
This policy explains what information we collect, what we do with it, and how we do it. It also describes your choices regarding use, access and correction of your personal information.
When you visit our website, you may choose to interact with our services in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction.
For example, we ask visitors who want to receive updates from us to provide an email address for that purpose.
Similarly, visitors who engage in transactions with Tidelift – by purchasing our services, for example – may be asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions.
Other types of information we may collect include:
In each case, Tidelift collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Tidelift. Tidelift does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below under “Uses and Sharing of Your Data”.
You can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, but it may prevent you from using certain Tidelift features.
With your authorization, and to provide you with better services, we may also obtain information about you from other sources. For example, if you create or log into your account through GitHub, we may receive information from that service (such as your username, basic profile information, and repository list). The information we receive depends on which services you authorize and any options that are available.
As is true of most websites, we also gather certain information automatically. This information may include Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, the files viewed on our site (e.g., HTML pages, graphics, etc.), operating system, and tracking of specific behavior on the site. Where this information is personally identifying, we do not disclose it information other than as described below under “Uses and Sharing of Your Data”.
If you have supplied your email address to Tidelift, we 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 Tidelift and our products. If you would like to discontinue receiving this information, you may update your email preferences by using the “Unsubscribe” link found in emails we send to you, at your member profile on our website, or by contacting us at email@example.com.
If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via other feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to record or publish the content of that request in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.
To provide services to you and our other users, we may share your information with third parties who provide services on our behalf. These companies are not authorized to use your personal information except as needed to provide these services to us.
These services may include:
We may also aggregate, use internally, and release publicly non-personally-identifying information. For example, we may develop and publish reports on website usage based on this data.
In certain situations, we may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including meeting national security or law enforcement requirements.
We may also disclose your personal information as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena or other legal process, when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.
If Tidelift is acquired or merges with another company, or some or substantially all of our assets, are acquired, or in the unlikely event that Tidelift goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information could be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. By using our site, you acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Tidelift may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Your data is processed by, and stored on, servers in the United States. Once it is received we follow industry-standard processes, including SSL and two-factor authentication, to secure it. We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once it is stored. If you have any questions about the security of your personal information, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Subject to your rights for correction and deletion described below in “Access and Choice”, we may retain your personal information as long as needed to provide you with services you request from us, comply with our legal obligations, or enforce our agreements with you. If you choose to delete your account, we will delete your personal information within a reasonable timeframe.
"Do Not Track" is a standard and browser privacy setting that controls how third parties can monitor your usage of a given site. We do not respond to an individual visitor's Do Not Track settings. You can find out more about Do Not Track here.
You have the right to request information about whether we hold any of your personal information. You also have the right to access, correct, or request deletion of your personal information. You can do these things by contacting us at email@example.com. We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe.
Tidelift, Inc., is in the process of certifying its compliance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. In the meantime, we are able to agree to the European Union Model Clauses. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
