PRIVACY POLICY

FIDUS appreciates your visit to this web site ("FIDUS Website") and your interest in our services and products. Your privacy is important to us and we want you to feel comfortable visiting our site.

We created this policy with a fundamental respect for our customers' right to privacy and to guide our relationships with our customers. This privacy statement covers the use of personal information that may be collected by FIDUS anytime you interact with FIDUS, such as when you visit our website. Please take a moment to read the following to learn more about our information practices.


Website Visitors

Like most website operators, we collect 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's request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use our website. Occasionally, our servers collect also potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our website.


Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain website visitors choose to interact with our website in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction.


Legal Disclaimer

We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our website.


Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

We disclose personally-identifying information only to our employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on our behalf or to provide services available on our websites, 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 our websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

We will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to our employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, we disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or our rights, third parties or the public at large. 

If you are a registered user and have supplied your email address, we may 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 our company or services.

We primarily use our various product blogs 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.

We take 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. We use cookies to help us identify and track visitors, their usage of our website, and their website access preferences. Our visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using our websites, with the drawback that certain features of our websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.


Changes in This Privacy Statement

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, the home page, and other places we deem appropriate so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
