Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Giraph 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.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals: (Note, this privacy policy is based on the policy of Automattic.com, which they kindly make available under a Creative Commons Sharealike license)

If you have questions about accessing or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.

Giraph Inc. (“Giraph”) operates the website giraph.com. It is Giraph’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

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

Giraph also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. Giraph 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 Giraph’s websites choose to interact with Giraph in ways that require Giraph to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Giraph gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at Giraph.com to provide a username and email address. In each case, Giraph collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Giraph. Giraph 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

Giraph may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Giraph may monitor the most popular blogs on the WordPress.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Giraph may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Giraph does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

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