Like most website operators, Stormboard 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. Stormboard's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Stormboard's visitors use its website. From time to time, Stormboard may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Stormboard also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Stormboard does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Registered users to Stormboard's websites choose to interact with Stormboard in ways that require Stormboard to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Stormboard gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, Stormboard collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Stormboard. Stormboard 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.
One of the primary reasons people use Stormboard is to brainstorm content with others. Examples include adding ideas, organizing ideas, commenting on ideas and voting on your favorite ideas.
The Storm Content added to a storm is only accessible to the users invited to the storm. Stormboard will not access or view your storm without an explicit invite from you or one of you users seeking technical support.
Securing your data
Stormboard has taken strong measures to protect the security of your personal information and storm content to ensure that your choices for its intended use are honored. We take strong precautions to protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
Stormboard may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Stormboard may reveal the average number of storms users create, or say how many people the average person invites. However, Stormboard does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information and Storm Content
Stormboard discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information and storm content only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Stormboard's behalf or to provide services available at Stormboard'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 Stormboard's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Stormboard will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information and storm content to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, Stormboard discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information and storm content only when required to do so by law, or when Stormboard believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Stormboard, third parties, or the public at large.
