Like most website operators, WordsAPI 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. WordsAPI's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how WordsAPI's visitors use its website. From time to time, WordsAPI may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
WordsAPI also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users accessing the WordsAPI API. WordsAPI only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Certain visitors to WordsAPI’s websites choose to interact with WordsAPI in ways that require WordsAPI to gather personally-identifying information. Visitors who sign up to use WordsAPI must provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with WordsAPI – by subscribing to a paid plan – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, WordsAPI collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with WordsAPI. WordsAPI 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.
WordsAPI may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites and API. For instance, WordsAPI may monitor usage patterns to different plan types in order to properly scale the service. WordsAPI may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, WordsAPI does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
WordsAPI 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 WordsAPI's behalf or to provide services available at WordsAPI’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 WordsAPI’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. WordsAPI 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, WordsAPI discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when WordsAPI believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of WordsAPI, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an WordsAPI website and have supplied your email address, WordsAPI 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 WordsAPI. We primarily use our blog 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. WordsAPI takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If WordsAPI, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that WordsAPI 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 WordsAPI may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
