Your privacy is critically important to us. At Panafold we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.

Privacy Policy

 

Website Visitors and Application Users
Like most website operators, Panafold 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. Panafold’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Panafold’s visitors use its website. 

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

In our Applications, we are not collecting any personally-identifying information.  This is subject to change. You would be updated about changes in both this document and within the Applications.

We do, however, collect personal information and curriculum information from you in the course of customizing applications. You give us this information over our website or via email when you select to order a custom application. This information is used for the purpose of developing product for you. It may also be used by us, in a non-personally-identifying way, to tell partners about our user base.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Panafold 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 Panafold’s behalf or to provide services available through Panafold’s website and applications, 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 Panafold’s websites and applications, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Panafold 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, Panafold discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Panafold believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Panafold, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of Panafold’s website or applications and have supplied your email address, Panafold 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 Panafold and our products. 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. Panafold 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. Panafold uses cookies to help us identify and track visitors, their usage of Panafold’s website, and their website access preferences. Panafold visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Panafold’s website, with the drawback that certain features of Panafold’s website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

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

Privacy Policy Changes
Although most changes are likely to be minor, Panafold may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Panafold’s sole discretion. Panafold encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a WordPress.com account, you should also check your blog’s dashboard for alerts to these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.

Please read this section carefully since it limits the liability of Panafold and its officers, directors, employees, agents, representatives, partners, and licensors (collectively, the “Entities”). Each of the subsections below only applies up to the maximum extent permitted under applicable law. Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of implied warranties or the limitation of liability in contracts, and as a result the contents of this section may not apply to you. Nothing in this section is intended to limit any rights you may have which may not be lawfully limited.

No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained from the Entities or through the Services, will create any warranty not expressly made herein.

B. Limitation of Liability

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE ENTITIES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, OR ANY LOSS OF PROFITS OR REVENUES, WHETHER INCURRED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, OR ANY LOSS OF DATA, USE, GOOD-WILL, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, RESULTING FROM (i) YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF OR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICES; (ii) ANY CONDUCT OR CONTENT OF ANY THIRD PARTY ON THE SERVICES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY DEFAMATORY, OFFENSIVE OR ILLEGAL CONDUCT OF OTHER USERS OR THIRD PARTIES; (iii) ANY CONTENT OBTAINED FROM THE SERVICES; OR (iv) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, USE OR ALTERATION OF YOUR TRANSMISSIONS OR CONTENT.

THE LIMITATIONS OF THIS SUBSECTION SHALL APPLY TO ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, STATUTE, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, AND WHETHER OR NOT THE PANAFOLD ENTITIES HAVE BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY SUCH DAMAGE, AND EVEN IF A REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

 

9. General Terms

A. Waiver and Severability

The failure of Panafold to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be deemed a waiver of such right or provision.
