Your privacy is important to us. At Data Humanism by Design, we have a few fundamental principles:
Like most website operators, DHxD 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. DHxD's purpose in collection non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how DHxD's visitors use its website. From time to time, DHxD may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
DHxD also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blog pages. DHxD 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.
Certain visitors to DHxD's websites choose to interact with DHxD in ways that require DHxD to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that DHxD gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who want to receive updates from any of our websites to provide a name and email address. In each case, DHxD collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with DHxD. DHxD does not disclose personally-identifying information other than 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.
DHxD may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, DHxD may monitor the most popular links on theCommons or the viewed data on Urban Form Impact. DHxD may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, DHxD does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
DHxD discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations who: (i) need to know such information in order to process it on DHxD's behalf or to provide services available at DHxD's websites, and (ii) have agreed not to disclose such information to others. Some of those employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country. By using DHxD's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, DHxD discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request, or when DHxD believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of DHxD, third parties, or the public at large.
If you are a registered user of a DHxD website and have supplied your email address, DHxD 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 DHxD and our work. 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. DHxD takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If DHxD, or substantially all of its assets, were to be acquired, or in the unlikely event that DHxD ceases operations or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that may be transferred or acquired by a third party. By using DHxD websites, you acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that any acquirer of DHxD may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
