Effective June 14, 2010 -- Updated September 3, 2012 to reflect information sharing with third parties

This Privacy Policy applies to all services provided by Standing Cloud, Inc. (the "Services") If you have any questions or concerns about our Privacy Policy, please feel free to send us email at support [at] standingcloud [dot] com, with the words "Privacy Policy" in the subject line.

Standing Cloud only processes personal information for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. In addition to particular purposes described in more detail below, such purposes include:

Information we collect

We intentionally and explicitly collect certain information about you and your use of the Services.

Information to which we have access

We have access to certain information about you and your use of the Services as a by-product of operating the Services.

Information security

We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. We restrict access to personal information to Standing Cloud employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.

Applications, including open source applications, that you operate through the Services will run on cloud servers and may be subject to typical security risks of such applications and servers. We take reasonable precautions so as not to increase the inherent security risks of such applications and servers; however, assessment of the security risks of the application and the cloud service are your responsibility.

Standing Cloud processes personal information on cloud servers in the United States of America and in other countries. In some cases, we process personal information on a server outside your own country.

Information sharing

Standing Cloud only shares personal information with other companies or individuals outside of the company in the following limited circumstances:

If Standing Cloud becomes involved in a merger, acquisition, or any form of sale of some or all of its assets, we will ensure the confidentiality of any personal information involved in such transactions and provide notice before personal information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

We may share with third parties certain pieces of aggregated, non-personal information, such as the number of users who installed a particular application, or the average duration of a particular process using Standing Cloud. Such information does not identify you individually.

Modification and deletion of personal information

We take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we process is accurate, complete, and current, but we depend on our users to update or correct their personal information whenever necessary. We make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal information so that you can correct this data if it is inaccurate. If you close your account, we may retain your personal information for a reasonable amount of time to ensure an orderly shutdown of both the applicable Services and our business relationship with you, and may use this information to contact you if it is necessary for those purposes. We may subsequently delete your personally identifying information from our systems, but we may retain your usage information indefinitely (but without personally identifying information).

Choices for personal information

If we intend to use your personal information in any manner or for any purpose other than those described in this Privacy Policy, we will ask for your consent prior to such use and will offer you an effective way to opt out of such use; provided, however, that this limitation will not apply to our inclusion or use of such information in aggregate form.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, the Services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled.

You can decline to submit personal information to the Services, in which case Standing Cloud may not be able to provide those Services to you.

Other sites

This Privacy Policy applies to Standing Cloud services only. We do not exercise control over sites to which we link, including without limitation open source software project sites, software license sites, or cloud service provider sites. These other sites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you.

Changes to the privacy policy

Please note that this Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will not reduce your rights under this Privacy Policy without advance notice. We will post any Privacy Policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice on our website and in the software that operates the Services.
