This policy explains what information we collect when you use IDR’s website and consume its content. It also has information about how we store, use, and transfer that information. Our aim is not just to comply with privacy law. It’s to earn your trust.
Information we collect and how we use it
IDR doesn’t make money from ads. So we don’t collect data in order to advertise to you. The tracking we do is to make our product work as well as possible.
In order to give you the best possible experience on IDR, we collect information from your interactions with our website. Some of this information, you actively tell us (such as your email address, which we use to communicate with you or track your account). Other information, we collect based on actions you take while using IDR, such as what pages you access and your interactions with our product features (like social media sharing). This information includes records of those interactions, your Internet Protocol address, and information about your device (such as device or browser type).
We use this information to:
- provide, test, improve, and personalise IDR
- fight spam and other forms of abuse
- generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how people use IDR
When you create your IDR account, and authenticate with a third-party service (like Twitter, Facebook or Google) we may collect, store, and periodically update information associated with that third-party account, such as your lists of friends or followers. We will never publish through your third-party account without your permission.
IDR won’t transfer information about you to third parties for the purpose of providing or facilitating third-party advertising to you. We won’t sell information about you.
We may share your account information with third parties in some circumstances, including: (1) with your consent; (2) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, such as pursuant to a legal process; (3) when we have a good faith belief that doing so will help prevent imminent harm to someone.
If we are going to share your information in response to legal process, we’ll give you notice so you can challenge it (for example by seeking court intervention), unless we’re prohibited by law or believe doing so may endanger others. We will object to requests for information about users of our services that we believe are improper.
Tracking & cookies
We use browser cookies and similar technologies to recognise you when you return to our IDR. We may use them in various ways, for example to log you in and personalise content. IDR doesn’t track you across the Internet. We track only your interactions on IDR.
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by online service providers in order to (for example) make their websites or services work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies set by the website owner or service provider (in this case, IDR) are called ‘first party cookies’. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called ‘third party cookies’. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website or service you are using (such as interactive content and analytics). The third parties that set these third-party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website or service in question and also when it visits certain other websites or services.
We use encryption (HTTPS/TLS) to protect data transmitted to and from our site. However, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure, so we can’t guarantee security. You use the service at your own risk, and you’re responsible for taking reasonable measures to secure your account.
Email from IDR
Sometimes we’ll send you emails about your account, service changes or new policies. You can’t opt out of this type of ‘transactional’ email (unless you delete your account). But, you can opt out of non-administrative emails such as digests, newsletters, and activity notifications.
When you interact with an email sent from IDR (such as opening an email or clicking on a particular link in an email), we may receive information about that interaction. We won’t email you to ask for your password or other account information.
Changes to this policy
IDR may periodically update this policy. We’ll notify you about significant changes to it.
