Unless otherwise specified, this policy does not apply to projects run by individuals or organizations outside of KINGSTON BAY TECHNOLOGIES, INC, even if we promote the use of those projects or happen to contribute to them.
KINGSTON BAY TECHNOLOGIES, INC is located within the United States, and therefore will transfer, process, and store your information in the United States.
Software Downloads: If you download and install software from Kingston Bay Technologies, Inc web site, we may collect information about your visit to our site. Once installed, our software may also connect automatically to our site to attempt to determine if updated versions are available. As a result, our site may log information related to the software downloads, such as your computer's IP address. Our collection, anonymization, and use of that data.
Bug Reports and Research Datasets: KINGSTON BAY TECHNOLOGIES, INC software and technology projects may give you the option to submit bug reports to us, either manually or (if you opt-in) automatically, such as when an error occurs. If you choose to submit reports, the content of those reports will be available to the project developers, which may include third parties. The software user interface will describe the contents of the report and the retention policies in further detail. We may disclose bug reports to people as necessary to improve the software or technology project.
Sometimes our software and technology projects may collect other types of information to help with technology research, which generally will not include personally identifiable information. When our software collects such information, its user interfaces will explain what it does, and let you enable or disable submissions. This information may be included in datasets, which are discussed below.
Use of Information: In general, KINGSTON BAY TECHNOLOGIES, INC uses the information provided by you to further its mission, including to strengthen Internet security and privacy, defend freedom and innovation, and to protect your rights in the digital world. To help you better understand how this information further these goals, we may include further explanations of the use of data within the project’s user interface.
Disclosure of Your Information: While KINGSTON BAY TECHNOLOGIES, INC endeavors to provide the highest level of protection for your information, we may disclose personally identifiable information about you to third parties in limited circumstances, including: (1) with your consent; or (2) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other judicial or administrative order.
If we are required by law to disclose the information that you have submitted, we will attempt to provide you with prior notice (unless we are prohibited or it would be futile) that a request for your information has been made in order to give you an opportunity to object to the disclosure. We will attempt to provide this notice by whatever means is reasonably practical. If you do not challenge the disclosure request, we may be legally required to turn over your information.
In addition, we will independently object to requests for access to information about users of our products and technologies that we believe to be improper and we have done so.
Updating or Removing Your Information.
We endeavor not to collect personal data from users, but recognize that you may choose to provide such information in a bug report. You may choose to correct, update, access or delete the personal information you have submitted to us by sending an email to email@example.com
Data Storage and Retention
If you submit a bug report or contribute to a research dataset, we will maintain this information for as long as we believe it is relevant to improving the software or technology project. Generally, we do not store personally identifiable information (PII), including the IP addresses of users, when collecting bug reports or research data. However, on occasion, we may store IP addresses for limited debugging purposes. (You may also choose to submit these reports and data in order to prevent us from being able to observe your IP address.)

Sharing of datasets: From time to time, we may share datasets derived from our technology projects with research partners working on topics related to Internet security, censorship resistance, privacy or other public policy objectives.
We may also publish datasets in a Kingston Bay Technologies report to further these objectives. The datasets we may share or publish will not intentionally contain PII and we will evaluate whether further sanitization or aggregation of data is necessary to reduce the likelihood that inferences about identifiable individuals' activities might be made from the published dataset.
Because anonymization is an algorithmically complex problem, we cannot promise that it will be flawless or attack-proof.
When we believe that a dataset may contain information that is especially sensitive or vulnerable to de-anonymization, we will not publish it, and if we share such data with partners, we will place them under a contractual obligation to keep the dataset confidential and avoid de-anonymization.
KINGSTON BAY TECHNOLOGIES, INC employs industry standard security measures to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control, including appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk, such as the pseudonymization and encryption of personal data, data backup systems, and engaging security professionals to evaluate our systems.
Although we make good faith to store information collected by KINGSTON BAY TECHNOLOGIES, INC in a secure operating environment, we cannot guarantee complete security.
Privacy Policies for Specific Software and Technology Projects: Some of the technology projects from KINGSTON BAY TECHNOLOGIES, INC may have specific privacy policies associated with them.
When we launch projects with their own privacy policies, they will be linked to from this page.
