Web site at http://www.Qondio.com/ (hereinafter referred to as "Qondio"),
and describes our policy regarding the handling of user-specific information.
Qondio requires limited information to be collected from users for the functionality of
the web site and its constituent systems to be effective and operational. This information
varies in type and volume according to the specific requirements of the user.
There are essentially two types of data collected from the user. Herein follows a brief
description of each.
- Explicit Data
One type of data is
collected explicitly. This information is invariably entered by the user via forms
on the Web site, and, as such, by its very nature is given voluntarily. The information
may include, but is by no means limited to, email addresses, usernames, passwords, names,
rating choices, or any other information the user chooses to enter.
- Implicit Data
The other type of data is collected implicitly. This data is gathered automatically and is
of a technical nature. In most instances, users will be aware that said data is being
collected, as almost all Web sites collect such data. However, no specific request for the
data will be communicated to the user. The implicitely collected data includes, but is not
limited to, IP addresses, times of access, patterns of access, and type of browsing software used.
Some or all of this data may be made public via the Web site.
Right of Use
Qondio has either the right to use, or the ownership of, the data collected from users. In
information is copyrighted, the user bequests to Qondio a limited license to use the data for the
sole purposes of operating the web site. In the
case of, but not necessarily limited to, data uploaded by the user,
the data will be electronically published by Qondio on the World Wide Web via the Qondio web site.
Any data collected, in any form, will be used by Qondio for the sole purposes of operating
the web site. Some data is directly essential for the immediate functionality of the web site, while other
data may be used for purposes of making operational or strategic decisions regarding the
improvement of the functionality of the web site.
In no instances shall data be collected, stored, or handled for the purposes of deriving
direct profit. Qondio will never sell, rent, share, information directly
gathered from users. Qondio is not in the business of divesting information for
profit through the direct sale of information, and will never attempt to do so.
Compiled Statistical Data
In some instances, Qondio may compile statistical data based on information derived from
information supplied by a large and statistically viable number of users. This data may be
made publicly available. Such statistical
data will never identify any individual users, or any particular data which can be linked
to an individual user. In all instances, such compiled data will be of a statistical
data only, and any and all contributing users whose information was used to compile the
data will stay anonymous and unidentifiable. Users will not be asked for their express
consent allowing their information to be used for statistical purposes.
A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user's computer for
Qondio uses a type of cookie which makes it possible for you to login and
navigate the Web site (without having to supply the same requests over and over again).
Qondio's cookies are set to expire, i.e. automatically cease to exist, within 100 days
from the date when they are sent to the user's computer. This is in contrast to many other
web sites which set the expire date to in excess of 20 years.
Preservation of Privacy Principle
Qondio will make utmost efforts to protect the integrity of the data held by Qondio
While most data collected by Qondio is of an inherently nature and expressly designated
for publication on the World Wide Web, private data, such as passwords and other information
not intended for publication, will never be intentionally released, traded, sold, rented,
or otherwise be passed into the hands of a third party. Qondio is not in the business of
selling or otherwise releasing data. Qondio solely exists as a platform for users to
post information as they see fit.
In case where Qondio has been subject to abuse by the user, or the user has harmed another
user or an unidentified party, or the user has
violated the Terms of Service, Qondio may
cooperate with the relevant authorities and/or unilaterally publicize information, as deemed appropriate.
However, Qondio will never immediately divulge private information without first attempting to
resolve the issue in question directly with the user.
