You must be at least thirteen (13) years of age to use the Service and children between the ages of thirteen (13) and seventeen (17) may not use the Service without the consent of a parent or guardian. The Service does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of thirteen (13). Accordingly, the provisions of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act do not apply to the Service.
Browsing the bip.io website does not require you to register for a bip.io account (“Account”) or provide us with any personal information. In general, the Service will gather some generic information automatically. This generic information may include the internet address assigned to your computer, the number and frequency of visitors to the bip.io website, the URL that you just came from and which URL you go to next (regardless of whether these URLs are on the bip.io website), and your computer browser information. Generic information does not reveal the identity of the visitor. This type of aggregate data may enable us to figure out how often users use parts of the Service, help us determine customer service and bip.io website needs, and do internal research on our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand, protect and serve you and our community. We may use this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, but not in a manner that would identify you personally. As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate information, not information about you personally, to our partners about how our users, collectively, use the Service.
We receive and store any information you enter on the Service or provide to us in any other way. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, though you may not be able to take advantage of many Service features. The personal information you provide may be used for such purposes as responding to your questions or requests, customizing the content you see, and communicating with you about new Service features.
We may also send anonymous identifiers to your device, including web beacons, clear GIFs and pixel tags. Pixel tags are not visible to the user of a website and consist of a few lines of computer coding delivered with the web pages accessed.
Access logs are gathered and archived automatically for billing audit and error recovery purposes of the Service server software. We do not store personally identifying messages or correspondence within these logs beyond what is minimally required to identify and recover from errors in a live or production environment. Unless a channel with permanent storage is configured by you, message payloads or attachments, such as documents, images, or media, which require automation and processing, may be stored on our systems in an encrypted format for up to three (3) days as part of the Service software’s normal operation.
We will use your personal information only in ways that are compatible with the purposes for which such information was collected or subsequently authorized by you. This also means that we will not use external services you have configured in the system as a vehicle for any bip.io system, company or marketing messaging. We will take reasonable steps to ensure that personal information is relevant to its intended use, accurate, complete, and current.
The personal information that you provide and that we collect will be stored and maintained by us for as long as we, in our sole discretion, believe is necessary or appropriate (a) to carry out the purpose(s) and the use(s) for which such information was collected or (b) to comply with applicable laws, contracts, or other rules or regulations.
Sharing in connection with business transfers – In the event that we are involved in a transaction such as a merger, stock purchase, bankruptcy or sale of all or substantially all of our assets, your personal information may be transferred to the other party in such a transaction. You will be notified via e-mail of any change in ownership (other than where the new owners are our affiliates) or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information. Sharing as required by law or for the protection of rights – We cooperate with law enforcement inquiries to enforce laws and intellectual property rights. Therefore, in response to a verified request by law enforcement or other government officials relating to a criminal investigation, we can (and you authorize us to) disclose your name, city, state, and e-mail address. We will not otherwise disclose your personal information to law enforcement or other government officials without a subpoena or court order, except when we believe in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss.
When you enter your contact information or send an e-mail or other communication to us, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries and respond to your requests. To the extent your e-mail address is provided to us, you may receive e-mail or other communications from us. If you send us personal correspondence, such as e-mails or letters, or if other users or third parties send us correspondence about your activities or postings on the Service, we may collect such information and store it in a file specific to you. You agree that we may use your personal information to contact you as provided herein, though our intent is that e-mail is the only channel we will use to contact you without your consent.
We accept no liability for any loss of or unauthorized access to your personal information that results from a breach that is beyond our control.
To help protect your privacy, be sure to: Never share your Credentials with anyone. Never respond to an e-mail or other type of correspondence from the Service or WOT.IO or anyone claiming to be from the Service or WOT.IO requesting your password or personal information. This includes any message which appears to originate from the Service or WOT.IO domain names. Never expose API tokens allocated to you in Internet or public environments such as websites, developer tools or third party source code repositories. Take precautionary measures to guard against malware, for example, by installing and updating anti-virus software and security updates. Avoid sending sensitive personal information across the Service such as your credit card or banking information or your social security number (for U.S. customers).
Please note that in the event of a security breach, the servers containing your information will become accessible. Also, transmissions via the Internet and mobile networks are never completely private or secure. You understand that any messages or information you send to the Service may be read or intercepted by others.
The Service utilizes industry standard 256-bit SSL encryption for all inbound HTTP communications, which includes user subdomains. When visiting the bip.io website from a browser, you should always see a green ‘https’ in the address bar, indicating the page content has been enclosed in a security layer. If this is not the case, we kindly request to be notified immediately. The Service communicates with multiple third party services to which you have subscribed, often negotiating a temporary access token, username/password pair or other kind of credential to establish a communication channel. Credentials you provide or the system negotiates are stored using Advanced Encryption Standard (“AES”). Personal profile information that the Service gathers automatically via an OAuth negotiation or similar are also stored encrypted using AES. We do not store credit card data as part of our normal operation.]
If you have any questions about the security of personal information that we collect, please contact us at the e-mail address set forth in the Contact Us section below.
We make no claims that the Service or any of its content is appropriate or may be downloaded or accessed outside of the United States. If you access the Service from outside the United States, you do so at your own risk and are responsible for compliance with the laws of the country in which you access the Service. You may not use or export any content of the Service in violation of U.S. export laws and regulations.
We attempt to keep your files complete, up-to-date, and accurate. We tell you how and where to conveniently access your personal information, including personal information in your Account, and how to notify us about errors. We offer several ways for you to access and/or update your personal information:
We reserve the right to deny you access to personal information in your Account (a) when such denial of access is required by law; (b) when granting you access is reasonably likely to negatively impact other people’s privacy; (c) to protect our rights and property; and (d) when such requests are frivolous or made in bad faith.
We do not support Do Not Track (“DNT”) with respect to your usage of the Service. The Service does not have a mechanism to recognize the various web browser DNT signals, in part, because no common industry standard for DNT has been adopted by industry groups, technology companies or regulators. We take privacy and meaningful choice seriously and will make efforts to continue to monitor developments around DNT-browsed technology and the implementation of a standard.
