Website Visitors

Greetings. Happy you're here. Like most website operators, früute 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. früute's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how früute's visitors use its website. From time to time, früute may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

früute also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. früute 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 früute's websites choose to interact with früute in ways that require früute to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that früute gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with früute are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, früute collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with früute. früute 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

früute may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. früute may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, früute does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

früute 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 früute’s behalf or to provide services available at früute'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 früute's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. früute 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, früute discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when früute believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of früute, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a früute website and have supplied your email address, früute 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 früute and our products. 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. früute takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Business Transfers

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