Your privacy is critically important to us. At HAY we have a few fundamental principles:
- We never store the content of your slack messages!
- We don't ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. We too dislike services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.
- We don't share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights. Wo do not sell your data to anyone.
- We don't store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.
codequest sp. z o.o. ("codequest") operates how are you (also “hay”). It is a codequest's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
Like most website operators, HAY collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available - e.g. browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. We do this for purposes of understanding and improving our users' experience. While we may, from time to time, make certain aggregate user information available (e.g. releasing information on our site regarding user trends and site analytics), we will never release any information identifying any individual site visitor or sell or transfer any of this information other than as described below.
Gathering of personally-identifying information
Certain visitors to HAY's websites may elect to sign up to use HAY's services offered via one or more sites. In these instances, we are required to verify that you are indeed an actual person and that you are (and will continue to be) in compliance with HAY's Terms and Conditions. In order to do so, we may ask that you provide us with certain personally-identifying information for such purposes. The amount and type of information that HAY gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at HAY to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with HAY are asked to provide additional information, including (as necessary) personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, the HAY collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the interaction. codequest that owns HAY services does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as 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 and service-related activities.
codequest, a software house behind HAY, discloses personally-identifying information (actual or potential) only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations (i) that need to know that information in order to process it on codequest's behalf or to provide services available at HAY'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 HAY's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. codequest 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, codequest discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or another governmental request, or when codequest believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of codequest, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a codequest website and have supplied your email address, we may occasionally send you notices to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up-to-date with what's going on with codequest 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. codequest takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
