Privacy Policy

JOTFLOW.com is operated by CrispQ Information Technologies Pvt. Ltd. (“CrispQ”.) It is CrispQ's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website

Website Visitors

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

CrispQ may also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. CrispQ may only disclose logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances wherein it may disclose personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to this website choose to interact with CrispQ in ways that require CrispQ to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that CrispQ gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we store names of authors that publish jots on JOTFLOW.com. Personally identifying information that is required to identify authors to readers; and to ensure that authors get their fair share of credit is made publicly available. However, any other personally identifying information that CrispQ may collect is not disclosed other than as described below. 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

CrispQ may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, CrispQ may monitor the most popular jots on JOTFLOW.com. CrispQ may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, CrispQ does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

CrispQ discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that

  1. need to know that information in order to process it on CrispQ’s behalf or to provide services available at CrispQ’s websites, and
  2. 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 CrispQ’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

CrispQ 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, CrispQ discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when CrispQ believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of CrispQ, third parties or the public at large.

If you send us a request (for example via a support email), 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. CrispQ takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
