Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. At Cramberry, we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We will never ask you for information unless we really need it. (for example, you won't find us asking for your social security number, income level, or other things we don't need to know)
  • We do our best to control who sees your information. We will never share your personal information without your permission, except to comply with the law and/or to protect our rights.
  • We try to make it easy for you to control who sees your information. For instance, we allow you to easily control whether other users can use sets you created.

Below is our full privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

This privacy policy was last updated on: July 28, 2009

Lateral Communications, Inc. ("Lateral Communications") operates the website cramberry.net. It is Lateral Communications's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

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

Lateral Communications also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Lateral Communications does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to cramberry.net choose to interact with Lateral Communications in ways that require Lateral Communications to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Lateral Communications gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at cramberry.net to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Lateral Communications are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Lateral Communications collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Lateral Communications. Lateral Communications 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

Lateral Communications may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Lateral Communications may monitor the most popular sets of flashcards, or the most active users on cramberry.net. Lateral Communications may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Lateral Communications does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Lateral Communications discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Lateral Communications's behalf or to provide services available at cramberry.net, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others outside of the terms of this policy. Some of those contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using cramberry.net, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

Lateral Communications will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.

Other than to its contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Lateral Communications discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Lateral Communications believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Lateral Communications, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of Lateral Communications and have supplied your email address, Lateral Communications 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 Lateral Communications. We primarily use our product 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. Lateral Communications takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized 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. Lateral Communications uses cookies to help Lateral Communications identify and track visitors, their usage of cramberry.net, and their website access preferences. Lateral Communications visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using cramberry.net, with the drawback that certain features of cramberry.net may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Lateral Communications may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Lateral Communications's sole discretion. Lateral Communications encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a cramberry.net account, we may also notify you via email of these changes, although we are in no way obligated to do so. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
