Privacy Policy

NEWPORT WIRELESS MESH PRIVACY POLICY

Newport Wireless Mesh, its staff or volunteers, will not sell or share information of any kind about subscribers or subscribers’ internet use with any other organization or entity unless presented with a valid search warrant pertinent to the service area.

Newport Wireless Mesh uses Stripe to process purchases of items on our website, including subscription fees. Please refer to Stripe’s privacy policy to find out about their safeguards to your privacy.

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Newport Wireless Mesh Inc. we have a few fundamental principles:

  • Newport Wireless Mesh monitors subscriber bandwidth usage. Newport Wireless Mesh does not keep a record of addresses on the internet visited by subscribers. We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand 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 or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  • In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals: (Note, we’ve decided to make this privacy policy available under a Creative Commons Sharealike license, which means you’re more than welcome to steal it and repurpose it for your own use, just make sure to replace references to us with ones to you, and if you want we’d appreciate a link to Newport Wireless Mesh Inc..com somewhere on your site. We spent a lot of money and time on the below, and other people shouldn’t need to do the same.)

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.

Newport Wireless Mesh Inc. Inc. (“Newport Wireless Mesh Inc.”) operates several websites including NewportMesh.org. It is Newport Wireless Mesh Inc.’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

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

Newport Wireless Mesh Inc. also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. Newport Wireless Mesh Inc. only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Newport Wireless Mesh Inc.’s websites choose to interact with Newport Wireless Mesh Inc. in ways that require Newport Wireless Mesh Inc. to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Newport Wireless Mesh Inc. gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at WordPress.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Newport Wireless Mesh Inc. – by purchasing access to the Akismet comment spam prevention service, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Newport Wireless Mesh Inc. collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Newport Wireless Mesh Inc.. Newport Wireless Mesh Inc. 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 activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Newport Wireless Mesh Inc. may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Newport Wireless Mesh Inc. may monitor the most popular blogs on the WordPress.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Newport Wireless Mesh Inc. may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Newport Wireless Mesh Inc. does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Newport Wireless Mesh Inc. 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 Newport Wireless Mesh Inc.’s behalf or to provide services available at Newport Wireless Mesh Inc.’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 Newport Wireless Mesh Inc.’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Newport Wireless Mesh Inc. 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, Newport Wireless Mesh Inc. discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Newport Wireless Mesh Inc. believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Newport Wireless Mesh Inc., third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Newport Wireless Mesh Inc. website and have supplied your email address, Newport Wireless Mesh Inc. 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 Newport Wireless Mesh Inc. 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. Newport Wireless Mesh Inc. takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
