1. Core Principles
When it comes to your personal information we believe in transparency, not surprises. So before we get into the details, we want to share with you a few of our core privacy principles. First, we don’t and will never sell your personal information to anyone. It’s just not the type of business we’re in. Secondly, we don’t ask for your personal information unless we need it to provide or improve the Services for you. Thirdly, we don’t share your personal information unless you’ve specifically allowed it, or for the very limited purposes described below. Finally, we appreciate that when you use our Services, you trust us with your information, and we take that responsibility very seriously.
When you use our services, we collect the following information, and use it only as described below:
2.1. Account Information.
This may include your name, address, email address and phone number. We use this information in the ways you would expect, such as to set up your Account or contact you.
2.2. Communications With Us.
When you send us emails or other communications, such as customer support inquiries, we maintain those communications and their contents so that we can resolve your inquiries or otherwise assist you.
2.3. Public Comments On The Services.
We maintain any comments, contributions to discussions or messages submitted to users of the Services, in order to provide the Services.
When you use the Services, we may share your information only as described below:
3.1. Following The Law.
We may disclose your information to third parties if we determine that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with the law, protect our rights or prevent fraud or abuse of Colonnade Studio or our users. When we receive law enforcement or national security requests for information, we strongly believe in privacy and transparency. We scrutinize such requests carefully and challenge vague, overbroad or otherwise unlawful requests. And when legally permitted, we provide our users with notice that their information is being requested. This notice is provided so that you have the opportunity to challenge such requests.
3.2. Others Working For Colonnade Studio.
3.3. Business Transfers.
If we’re involved in a reorganization, merger, acquisition or sale of our assets, your information may be transferred as part of that deal.
While no service is completely secure, we have a security team dedicated to keeping your information safe. We employ security measures such as using firewalls to protect against intruders, building redundancies throughout our network (so that if one server goes down, another can cover for it) and testing for and protecting against network vulnerabilities.
We’ll retain your personal information for as long as we need it to provide you with the Services. You can ask for your personal information to be deleted at any time by deleting your Account or contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that there may be latency in deleting your personal information from our servers and backup storage, and we may retain your personal information in order to comply with the law, protect our rights, resolve disputes or enforce our agreements.
We may retain certain information as required by law or for necessary business purposes. On request, we’ll provide you with a copy of your personal information that we maintain. This request may be subject to a fee not exceeding the prescribed fee permitted by law.
We may periodically email you service-related announcements. We’ll also send you emails related to your transactions. We may also send you marketing or promotional communications, but you can opt out of receiving subsequent marketing or promotional communications by clicking the link marked unsubscribe (or a similar phrasing) that’s included in those communications.
