Like most website operators, BucketListly 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. BucketListly’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how BucketListly’s visitors use its website. From time to time, BucketListly may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
BucketListly also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on BucketListly.com pages. BucketListly 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 BucketListly’s websites choose to interact with BucketListly in ways that require BucketListly to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that BucketListly gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at BucketListly.com to provide a username and email address. BucketListly 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.
BucketListly may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, BucketListly may monitor the most popular account on the BucketListly.com site. BucketListly may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, BucketListly does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
BucketListly 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 BucketListly’s behalf or to provide services available at BucketListly’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 BucketListly’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. BucketListly 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, BucketListly discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when BucketListly believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of BucketListly, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an BucketListly website and have supplied your email address, BucketListly 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 BucketListly and our products. We primarily use our blog 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. BucketListly takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If BucketListly, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that BucketListly 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 BucketListly may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
