Privacy Policy

It is Nifty Marketing’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors
Like most website operators, Nifty Marketing 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. Nifty Marketing’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Nifty Marketing’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Nifty Marketing may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Nifty Marketing also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. Nifty Marketing only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Nifty Marketing’s websites choose to interact with Nifty Marketing in ways that require Nifty Marketing to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Automattic gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who request a free site audit to provide a username, phone number and email address. In each case, Nifty Marketing collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Nifty Marketing. Nifty Marketing 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.

Aggregated Statistics
Nifty Marketing may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Nifty Marketing may monitor the most popular blogs on the WordPress.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Nifty Marketing may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Nifty Marketing does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Nifty Marketing 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 Nifty Marketing’s behalf or to provide services available at Nifty Marketing’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 Nifty Marketing’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Nifty Marketing 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, Nifty Marketing discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Nifty Marketing believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Automattic, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Nifty Marketing website and have supplied your email address, Nifty Marketing 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 Nifty Marketing 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. Nifty Marketing takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies
A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Nifty Marketing uses cookies to help Nifty Marketing identify and track visitors, their usage of Nifty Marketing website, and their website access preferences. Nifty Marketing visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Nifty Marketing’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Nifty Marketing’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers
If Nifty Marketing, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Nifty Marketing 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 Nifty Marketing may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads
Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Automattic and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Comments
Comments and other content submitted to our 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.

Privacy Policy Changes
Although most changes are likely to be minor, Nifty Marketing may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Nifty Marketing’s sole discretion. Nifty Marketing encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
