How We Share Information

We share your information with other parties for a variety of purposes, as described below.

Service providers.  Maidbot uses third-party service providers that perform services on our behalf, including, for example, to host our website, perform analytics, and to send emails on our behalf.  These service providers may collect and use your information, including information that identifies you personally, to assist us in achieving the purposes discussed in this Policy.

Legal purposes.  We also may use or share your information with third parties when we believe, in our sole discretion, that doing so is necessary:

Aggregated and de-identified information.  From time to time, Maidbot may share aggregated and de-identified information with third parties about Site users, such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Site.  Such aggregated information will not identify you personally.

Analytics

We partner with certain third parties to obtain the automatically collected information discussed in this Policy and to engage in analysis, auditing, research, and reporting.  These third parties may use web logs or web beacons, and they may set and access cookies on your computer or other device.  In particular, the Site uses Google Analytics to help collect and analyze certain information for the purposes discussed above.  You may opt out of the use of cookies by Google Analytics here.

The use of online tracking mechanisms by third parties is subject to those third parties’ own privacy policies, and not this Policy.  If you prefer to prevent third parties from setting and accessing cookies on your computer or other device, you may set your browser to block cookies.  Although our Site currently does not respond to “do not track” browser headers, you can limit tracking and analytics by taking the steps discussed above.

External links

The Site may contain links to websites of other third parties.  If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites (and any services that may be accessible through them) have their own privacy policies.  We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other websites or the information you share through such other websites.  We encourage Site users to be aware when they leave the Site and to read the privacy policies applicable to such third-party websites.  This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected in connection with the Site.

If you are an EU resident, our legal basis for processing information will depend on the type of information at issue and the purpose for which it is collected and used.  We may rely on your consent to process information, or we may process information as necessary for the performance of our agreements with you.
