Privacy Policy


Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Cribhut Group 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, protect our rights or forward on at your request to forward on your referral to one of our partners.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  • In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

Thank you to automattic.com, who have made this privacy policy available under a Creative Commons Sharealike license.

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact us.

Cribhut Group Pty Ltd (“Cribhut”) operates two websites including cribhut.com.au and cribhutdaily.com.au. It is Cribhut’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

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

Cribhut also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Cribhut.com.au and CribhutDaily.com.au blogs and pages. Cribhut 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 and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Cribhut’s websites choose to interact with Cribhut in ways that require Cribhut to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Cribhut gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a Cribhut Premium at www.cribhut.com.au to provide a full name, username and email address.. Those who engage in transactions with Cribhut – by purchasing access to the Cribhut Premium 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, Cribhut collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Cribhut. Cribhut 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

Cribhut may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Cribhut may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Cribhut does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Cribhut discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Cribhut’s behalf or to provide services available at Cribhut’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using Cribhut’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Cribhut will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, Cribhut discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Cribhut believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Cribhut, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Cribhut website and have supplied your email address, Cribhut 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 Cribhut 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. Cribhut takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Cribhut uses cookies to help Cribhut identify and track visitors, their usage of Cribhut websites, and their website access preferences. Cribhut visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Cribhut’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Cribhut’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Cribhut, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Cribhut 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 Cribhut may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognise your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Cribhut and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Cribhut may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Cribhut’s sole discretion. Cribhut encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
