Your privacy is critically important to us. At Duck Soup Software we have a few fundamental principles:
Duck Soup Software, LLC. (“Duck Soup”) operates DuckSoup.us. It is Duck Soup’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites or apps.
Website Visitors and App Customers
Like most website or app operators, Duck Soup 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. Duck Soup’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Duck Soup’s visitors use its website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Duck Soup’s websites choose to interact with Duck Soup in ways that require Duck Soup to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Duck Soup gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for the Duck Soup newsletter to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with Duck Soup – by purchasing access to DuckSoup.us, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Duck Soup collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the customer’s interaction with Duck Soup or its apps. Duck Soup does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Duck Soup may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites or use of its apps. Duck Soup does not display this information publicly or provide it to others.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Duck Soup 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 Duck Soup’s behalf or to provide services available at Duck Soup’s websites or its apps, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Duck Soup discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Duck Soup believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Duck Soup, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Duck Soup app and have supplied your email address, Duck Soup 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 Duck Soup 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. Duck Soup takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
