Your privacy is critically important to us. At Libatious 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 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.
- In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public & kept private.
If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.
YES Labs Inc. (“Libatious”) operates several websites including libatious.com. It is Libatious’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Libatious 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. Libatious’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Libatious’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Libatious may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Libatious also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on beer reviews or creating new beer lists. Libatious 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 commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to our administrators.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Libatious’s websites choose to interact with Libatious in ways that require Libatious to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Libatious gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account on Libatious to provide a name and email address. Those who create additional content on Libatious—like beer lists or new beer suggestions—may be asked to provide additional information as required to complete those actions. In each case, Libatious collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Libatious. Libatious 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.
Libatious may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Libatious may monitor the most popular beers or breweries listed on the site or which beers users add to their queues. Libatious may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Libatious does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Libatious 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 Libatious’s behalf or to provide services available at Libatious’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 Libatious’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Libatious 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, Libatious discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Libatious believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Libatious, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Libatious website and have supplied your email address, Libatious may send you an emails to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Libatious and our products. We primarily use our Twitter account and blog 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. Libatious takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Libatious, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the event that Libatious goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that are transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Libatious may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments on beer reviews, beer lists, and other content created by users ("Content") will be stored on our servers and attributed to the user who submitted the Content. By submitting Content to Libatious, you grant Libatious a perpetual, non-exclusive, non-transferable worldwide license to use the Content on its websites, in advertising, or any other use required for the ongoing operation of its business. All other rights in and to the Content, including, without limitation, all copyright and other intellectual property rights relating to the Content, are retained by Libatious or the supplier of the Content, as the case may be.
