Your privacy is critically important to us. At Muddy Dash 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 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 one of our services.
Like most website operators, Muddy Dash 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. Muddy Dash’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Muddy Dash’s visitors use its website.
Muddy Dash also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses when athlete’s register for a race and for users leaving comments on our site. Muddy Dash 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 IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the registration system where the athlete signed up at.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Muddy Dash’s website choose to interact with Muddy Dash in ways that require Muddy Dash’s to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Muddy Dash’s gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, when signing up for a race, Muddy Dash’s collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Muddy Dash’s. Muddy Dash 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, like registering for an event.
Muddy Dash may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Muddy Dash’s may monitor the most popular posts on the site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Muddy Dash’s may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Muddy Dash does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Muddy Dash 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 Muddy Dash’s behalf or to provide services available at Muddy Dash’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 Muddy Dash’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Muddy Dash 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, Muddy Dash discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Muddy Dash believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Muddy Dash, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of Muddy Dash’s website, or if you’ve register for a Muddy Dash event and have supplied your email address, Muddy Dash may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Muddy Dash and our events. We primarily use various blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. Each email communication will include a link to unsubscribe from future emails. 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. Muddy Dash takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Muddy Dash, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Muddy Dash 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 Muddy Dash may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
