Privacy Policy

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

Website Visitors

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

FileQL also collects potentially personally-identifying information that is collected by Gooogle Analytics. The analytics feature FileQL has implemented is based on Display Advertising (e.g., Remarketing, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, the Doubleclick Campaign Manager integration, or Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting). Visitors can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customer Display Network ads using Ads Settings.

FileQL will not facilitate the merging of personally-identifiable informaiton with non-personally indentifiable information previously collected from Google Display Advertising features that is based on the DoubleClick cookie unless FileQL has robust notice of, and the user's prior affirmative (i.e., opt-in) consent to, that merger. FileQL also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. FileQL only discloses logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

At any time, visitors may choose to opt-out of Google Analytics tracking with the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on.

FileQL uses the Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting feature to identify trends in the usage of its website which may be published in reports for internal use.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to FileQL's websites choose to interact with FileQL in ways that require FileQL to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that FileQL gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at fileql.com to provide their Dropbox authorization which in turn supplies us with your Email and Full name. Those who engage in transactions with FileQL – by purchasing a monthly subscription to fileql.com, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, FileQL collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with FileQL. FileQL does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. 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

FileQL may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. FileQL may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, FileQL does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

FileQL 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 FileQL's behalf or to provide services available at FileQL's 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 FileQL's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. FileQL 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, FileQL discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when FileQL believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of FileQL, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a FileQL website and have supplied your email address, FileQL 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 FileQL and our products. 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. FileQL 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. FileQL uses cookies to help FileQL identify and track visitors, their usage of FileQL website, and their website access preferences. FileQL and third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to report how your ad impressions, other uses of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services are related to visits to your site. FileQL's visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using FileQL's websites, with the drawback that certain features of FileQL's websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

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

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, FileQL may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in FileQL's sole discretion. FileQL encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
