Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

CodeStop is a creation of Coding Avenue. At Coding Avenue, we follow a few fundamental principles to safeguard your privacy.

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 our site.

Coding Avenue operates codestop.io and the services it provides. It is Coding Avenue’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Information we collect and use

When you register for a CodeStop account using your email, Coding Avenue collects basic personal information. These information are your name, sex, birth date, and email. We also store the information that you optionally provide on your profile page.

How we use your information

Coding Avenue collects non-personally-identifying information to provide services, respond to your comments and questions, collect usage statistics, and communicate with you through email and other electronic means.

Personal data we disclose

We display your profile name when you post questions and make or respond to comments.

Signing up through third-party services

You may use Google Plus and Facebook to set up your account. Please see Google Account Help to know what information Google provides when you sign in to a third-party website. Please see Facebook's Data Policy to know what information Facebook provides and collects when you sign in to a third-party website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Coding Avenue 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.

Coding Avenue’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Coding Avenue’s visitors use codestop.io and its programming courses. From time to time, Coding Avenue may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Coding Avenue also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Coding Avenue 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 codestop.io choose to interact with the website in ways that require Coding Avenue to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Coding Avenue gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive updates about CodeStop via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Coding Avenue collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with CodeStop. Coding Avenue 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.

Aggregated Statistics

Coding Avenue may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to codestop.io. For instance, Coding Avenue may monitor the most popular pages on the list25.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Coding Avenue may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Coding Avenue does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Coding Avenue 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 Coding Avenue’s behalf or to provide services available at codestop.io, 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 codestop.io, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Coding Avenue 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, Coding Avenue discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Coding Avenue believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Coding Avenue, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of codestop.io and have supplied your email address, Coding Avenue, through CodeStop, may occasionally send you an email to inform you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with codestop.io. We primarily use our various product blogs 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. Coding Avenue takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Coding Avenue uses cookies to help identify and track visitors on codestop.io, their usage of codestop.io, and their website access preferences. Codestop.io visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using codestop.io, with the drawback that certain features of codestop.io may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Coding Avenue, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Coding Avenue 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 Coding Avenue and codestop.io may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

We do not intend to host ads on codestop.io. However, if an ad may appear on codestop.io, it is delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Coding Avenue and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Comments

Comments and other content submitted to Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Coding Avenue may change the Privacy Policy of codestop.io from time to time, and in Coding Avenue’s sole discretion. Coding Avenue encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
