Your privacy is critically important
At MyGet 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 blogging 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.
Like most website operators, MyGet 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. MyGet’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how MyGet's visitors use its website. From time to time, MyGet may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
MyGet also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on MyGet. Furthermore MyGet is a context based service that provides you the information most suitable for the time and location that you are in, this implies that MyGet will track your location while using the web site. MyGet only discloses location information or logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.Top
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to MyGet's websites choose to interact with MyGet in ways that require MyGet to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that MyGet gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for MyGet.org to provide an identifier from at least one social idenitity provider. Those who engage in transactions with MyGet are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, MyGet collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with MyGet. MyGet 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.Top
MyGet may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, MyGet may monitor the most popular feeds on the MyGet.org site. MyGet may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, MyGet does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.Top
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
MyGet 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 MyGet's behalf or to provide services available at MyGet'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 MyGet's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. MyGet 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, MyGet discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena or court order, or when MyGet believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of MyGet, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the MyGet.org website and have supplied your email address, MyGet 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 MyGet 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. MyGet takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.Top
