What happens at Via Maria stays at Via MariaYour privacy is very important to us. At Via Maria we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We do store personal information on our servers required for the on-going operation of our site, as well as forms that you may have submitted.
Like most website operators, Via Maria 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. Via Maria’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Via Maria’s visitors use its website. Via Maria also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses when you submit a form. It is not given away to any other entity.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Via Maria’s websites choose to interact with Via Maria in ways that require Via Maria to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Via Maria gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. We collect email addresses of those who submit a form on our website and may subscribe to our rarely published newsletter. In each case, Via Maria collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Via Maria. Via Maria 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.
Via Maria may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Via Maria may use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Via Maria may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Via Maria does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Via Maria 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 Via Maria’s behalf or to provide services available at Via Maria’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 Via Maria’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Via Maria 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, Via Maria discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Via Maria believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Via Maria, third parties or the public at large. 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. Via Maria takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Via Maria, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Via Maria 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 Awesome Motive may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
