Photon operates photon.sh and related subdomains. It is Photon's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Photon 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. Photon's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Photon's visitors use its website and to better provide related content to its visitors. From time to time, Photon may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Photon also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. Photon only discloses logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Photon's websites choose to interact with Photon in ways that require Photon to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Photon gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a account at photon.sh to provide a name and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Photon - by purchasing access to the Photon paid service, for example - are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Photon collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Photon. Photon 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.
Photon may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Photon may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Photon does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Photon 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 Photon's behalf or to provide services available at Photon'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 Photon's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Photon 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, Photon discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Photon believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Photon, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Photon website and have supplied your email address, Photon 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 Photon and our products. 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. Photon takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Photon, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Photon 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 Photon may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
