Privacy Policy

Effective Date: June 15, 2017

Welcome to Deppli, a Website created by Jeff Hayes, (“Jeff Hayes,” “We,” “Us”) which lives at deppli.com (“Deppli,” “Website,” “Site”). This Privacy Policy applies to any information that is collected while you are on the Site. Our goal with this policy is to be transparent about the information we collect, how we use it, and how it is shared.

This Privacy Policy is part of our Terms of Service, and by using the Site you agree to both. Terms with initial capital letters used in this Privacy Policy shall have the respective meanings assigned to them in the Terms of Service.

WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?

1. We collect limited information when you browse the site

When you visit the Site we collect log data, for example: the type of browser and operating system you are using, the address of the external or internal page that referred you, your IP address and pages on the site that you visit in association with your IP address. This information is recorded even if you do not have a Discussion Forum account, or even when you are logged out of your account. We mostly use this information to diagnose issues with the site. We only retain it for three days.

2. We Collect Information Using Cookies

We don’t have external advertising, but there are cookies used. You should know how cookies work. You should know what cookies we use. You should support cookie reform efforts if you choose.

3. We collect information when you comment to our blog or use our Discussion Forum.

We allow you to create an account that can be used on this site. This policy controls how we use the data we are able to access about your account and your use of the Forum.
You should remember that any blog entry you comment on or anything posted on the forum is public and therefore is not covered by this privacy policy-- it is viewable by everyone on the Internet.

4. We DO NOT Collect Information When You Use The Deppli Shop

Our marketplace services are provided by PayPal. Their privacy policy can be found here. We do not have access to any personal information that you provide to them during the purchase and checkout process.

5. We Collect Information When You Communicate With Us Directly

If you email us or send other communications to us directly, we will retain your email or address and correspondence so that we may respond to your request. We retain this information indefinitely so that we have a history of our past communications.

WHO DO WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION WITH?

It is generally our policy not to share or sell your personally identifiable information with any third party. We may, however, share information under the following circumstances:

1. If we receive your informed consent;

2. If it is necessary for a third party provider to perform tasks on our behalf (as described in this policy);

3. If we believe doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation, or valid legal process. If we are going to release your information, we will do our best to provide you with notice in advance, if we have a means to contact you, unless we are prohibited by court order from doing so; or

4. If we are acquired by or merged with another company. This Privacy Policy would continue to apply to any data collected while it was in place.

LINKS TO OTHER SITES

It should go without saying, but we'll say it anyway: this website contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by us. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites, unless we have specified them in this document.

DATA SECURITY

We have adopted commercially reasonable technical, physical and administrative procedures to protect the confidentiality of the information that we collect on our site. However, the Internet is not a vault and data can be lost.

INTERNATIONAL VISITORS

Jeff Hayes is a San Francisco, California-based company whose servers are housed in Europe. All personal information we collect from our international users is processed according to EU law. We comply with the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework and the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from European Union member countries and Switzerland. We have certified that we adhere to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement. To learn more about the Safe Harbor program, and to view our certification, please visit Export.gov.

RATED PG-13

We have kids. We love kids.  Really we do. But the United States government has put limits on our ability to accept users under a certain age through the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998. So to be clear, Deppli is not intended for users under the age of 13. Nobody under 13 may create an account or use any part of the Site that requires the submission of personally identifiable information, like email or name. Any account that is created by a person under 13 will be terminated and any content created will be removed from the Site.

CHANGES TO THIS POLICY

This Privacy Policy may be revised. If we make material changes to this policy, we will make them available, in advance, on the Deppli.com home page.
