We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. 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 ongoing operation of one of our services.
It is our policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
We collect 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. Our purpose in collecting non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use the website. From time to time, Rescue Hearts may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Rescue Hearts also collects potentially personally-identifying information such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. Rescue Hearts 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.

Rescue Hearts collects information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Rescue Hearts. Rescue Hearts does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors may opt to refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Rescue Hearts 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 our behalf or to provide services available at our websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Rescue Hearts 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, Rescue Hearts discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Rescue Hearts believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Rescue Hearts, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Rescue Hearts website and have supplied your email address, Rescue Hearts may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or keep you informed on news about Rescue Hearts 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 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. Rescue Hearts takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Rescue Hearts, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Rescue Hearts 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 Rescue Hearts may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
