Your privacy is critically important to us. At SharpEdge Software we have a few fundamental principles:
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 one of our services.
In our WouldBeBetter.com products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.
(Note, this Terms of Service is based on one developed for wordpress.com and is available under a Creative Commons Sharealike license, which means you’re more than welcome to steal it and repurpose it for your own use, just make sure to replace references to us with ones to you, and if you want we’d appreciate a link to WouldBeBetter.com somewhere on your site. )
SharpEdge Software B.V. (“SharpEdge Software”) operates several websites including SharpEdgeSoftware.com and WouldBeBetter.com . It is SharpEdge Software’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, SharpEdge Software 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. SharpEdge Software’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how SharpEdge Software’s visitors use its website. From time to time, SharpEdge Software may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
SharpEdge Software also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. SharpEdge Software does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to SharpEdge Software’s websites choose to interact with SharpEdge Software in ways that require SharpEdge Software to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that SharpEdge Software gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at WouldBeBetter.com to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with SharpEdge Software – by sponsoring tags at WouldBeBetter.com, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, SharpEdge Software collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with SharpEdge Software. SharpEdge Software 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.
SharpEdge Software may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, SharpEdge Software may monitor the most popular suggestions on the WouldBeBetter.com site. SharpEdge Software may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, SharpEdge Software does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
SharpEdge Software 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 SharpEdge Software’s behalf or to provide services available at SharpEdge Software’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 SharpEdge Software’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. SharpEdge Software 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, SharpEdge Software discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when SharpEdge Software believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SharpEdge Software, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a SharpEdge Software website and have supplied your email address, SharpEdge Software 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 SharpEdge Software 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. SharpEdge Software takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
