We collect any information that you give us. For example, we collect information about you when you sign up for one of our Services, participate in any interactive features of the Sites or the Services, fill out a form, give us feedback, ideas or submissions about any of the Services, communicate with us via third party social media sites, request customer support, or otherwise communicate with us via the Sites, the Services, or any other means. The types of information we may collect include your name, email address, credit/debit card information, as well as any other information you choose to provide to us. For information about ways to limit our collection of your information, please see the “Your Choices” section below. If you choose not to provide certain information, you understand that we may not be able to provide certain of our Services to you, and that certain features of our Sites or Services may be unavailable or work differently.
When you access or use the Sites or use the Services (or certain portions of the Sites or Services), we automatically collect certain information about you. This information includes:
Log Information: We log information about your use of the Sites and the Services, including the type of device you use, access times, IP address, pages viewed, and the page you visited before navigating to one of our Sites and/or using the Services. We use this information for analytics and product improvement purposes.
Device Information: We collect information about the computer you use to access the Sites and the Services, including the hardware model, operating system and version and unique device identifiers.
Information Collected by Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies: We use various technologies to collect information, including cookies and web beacons. Cookies are small data files stored on your hard drive or in device memory, while web beacons (also known as “tracking pixels”) are non-visible electronic images. These technologies are used for analytics and product improvement purposes, such as seeing which areas and features of our Sites and Services are popular, or determining whether an email has been opened and acted upon. For more information about cookies, and how to disable them, please see “Your Choices” below.
We may obtain information about you from other sources, and combine that with information we collect through your access and use of our Sites and the Services. For example, if you create or log into your account through a site like Google.com or GitHub.com, we may have access to certain information about you from those sites, such as your name, account information, and friends lists, in accordance with the authorization procedures determined by those sites.
We may use your information for a variety of purposes, including to:
We may share your information with vendors, consultants and other service providers who need access to such information to perform work or provide services on our behalf. These third parties will only have access to your information as necessary to perform their functions, and may not use your information for any other purpose.
We may disclose information about you to government or law enforcement officials or to private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to (i) respond to claims and/or legal process (including subpoenas); (ii) to protect the property and/or rights of CoreOS or any third party; (iii) to protect the safety of the public or any person; (iv) to prevent or stop any illegal, unethical, or legally actionable activity; (v) to comply with applicable law or regulation; or (vi) in response to any lawful request by public authorities, including, without limitation, to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
We may also share aggregated or anonymized information that does not directly identify you.
CoreOS is committed to safeguarding the confidentiality of information that we collect about you. As part of that commitment, we take reasonable administrative, physical, and electronic measures to help protect your information from loss, theft, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. Please be aware, however, that no method of transmitting information over the Internet or storing of information is completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the absolute security or secrecy of any of your information.
Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies. Please note that if you do choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect the availability and functionality of the Sites and certain of the Services.
You may opt out of receiving promotional communications from CoreOS by following the instructions in those communications. If you opt out, we may still send you non-promotional communications, including those relating to your current accounts or your use of the Services.
CoreOS does not disclose your personal data to third parties, other than to third parties that act as our agents to perform tasks on our behalf and pursuant to our instruction (collectively, “Processors”) that relate specifically to making our products and services available to you. We enter into contracts with each of our Processors. You will not be able to opt out of such disclosures, since those Processors are operating on our behalf and at our instruction in order to help make our products and services available to you. You do have the ability to opt out of receiving promotional communications, by following the instructions in those communications; see the “Promotional Communications” paragraph above for more information. You also have the ability to opt out of having your web browsing information used for behavioral advertising purposes; see the “Analytics Services” paragraph above for more information. CoreOS does not use your personal data for purposes that are materially different from the purpose(s) for which that data was originally collected.
CoreOS is based in the United States, and the information we collect is governed by U.S. law. By accessing or using the Sites or Services or otherwise providing information to us, you consent to the processing, transfer and storage of information in and to the U.S. and other countries, where you may not have the same rights and protections.
Please direct any inquiries or complaints regarding CoreOS’ compliance with the Principles to the point of contact listed in the “Contact Us” section below. If CoreOS does not resolve your complaint, you may submit your complaint free of charge to JAMS at https://www.jamsadr.com/file-an-eu-us-privacy-shield-or-safe-harbor-claim, CoreOS’ designated Privacy Shield dispute resolution provider. Under certain conditions specified by the Principles, you may also be able to invoke binding arbitration to resolve your complaint. CoreOS is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the Federal Trade Commission. If CoreOS shares EU Data with a third-party service provider that processes the data solely on CoreOS’ behalf, then CoreOS will be liable for that third party’s processing of EU Data in violation of the Principles, unless CoreOS can prove that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
