CodeStop is a creation of Hireplicity. At Hireplicity, 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.
Hireplicity operates codestop.io and the services it provides. It is Hireplicity’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, Hireplicity 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
Hireplicity 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.
Like most website operators, Hireplicity 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.
Hireplicity’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Hireplicity’s visitors use codestop.io and its programming courses. From time to time, Hireplicity may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Hireplicity also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Hireplicity 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 Hireplicity to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Hireplicity 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, Hireplicity collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with CodeStop. Hireplicity 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.
Hireplicity may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to codestop.io. For instance, Hireplicity may monitor the most popular pages on the list25.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Hireplicity may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Hireplicity does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Hireplicity 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 Hireplicity’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. Hireplicity 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, Hireplicity discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Hireplicity believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Hireplicity, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of codestop.io and have supplied your email address, Hireplicity, 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. Hireplicity takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Hireplicity, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Hireplicity 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 Hireplicity and codestop.io may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
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.
