Your privacy is critically important to us. At Harmonic Pod 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.
Harmonic Pod (“Harmonic Pod”) has several affiliated websites including www.ahhhyes.com, www.harmonicpod.com and www.thehiddenlight.com – It is Harmonic Pod’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Harmonic Pod 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. Harmonic Pod’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Harmonic Pod’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Harmonic Pod may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Harmonic Pod also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on www.harmonicpod.com blog. Harmonic Pod 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 Harmonic Pod’s website choose to interact with Harmonic Pod in ways that require Harmonic Pod to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Harmonic Pod gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at www.harmonicpod.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Harmonic Pod – by purchasing an eBook on www.thehiddenlight.com for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Harmonic Pod collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Harmonic Pod. Harmonic Pod 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.
Harmonic Pod may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Harmonic Pod may monitor the most popular blogs. Harmonic Pod may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Harmonic Pod does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Harmonic Pod 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 Harmonic Pod’s behalf or to provide services available at Harmonic Pod’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 Harmonic Pod’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Harmonic Pod 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, Harmonic Pod discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Harmonic Pod believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Harmonic Pod, third parties or the public at large.
Harmonic Pod takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Harmonic Pod, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Harmonic Pod 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 Harmonic Pod may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
