Privacy Policy

Code Fellows takes your privacy seriously. Please read the following to learn more about our privacy policy. By visiting the www.codefellows.com website and domain name, and any other linked pages, features, content, or application services offered from time to time by Code Fellows in connection therewith (collectively, the "Website"), or using any of our services, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Policy.

What Does This Privacy Policy Cover?

This Privacy Policy covers Code Fellows' treatment of personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") that Code Fellows gathers when you are accessing Code Fellows' Website and when you use Code Fellows services. This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Code Fellows does not own or control, or to individuals that Code Fellows does not employ or manage.

What Personal Information Does Code Fellows Collect?

The information we gather from users enables us to personalize and improve our services and to allow our users to set up a user account and profile that can be used to interact with other users through the Website. In connection with the Website, we request and display some personal information to other users and visitors of the Website, which allows users to identify each other. We collect the following types of information from our users.

Personal Information You Provide to Us:

We receive and store any information you enter on our Website or provide to us in any other way. The types of Personal Information collected may include your name, user name, email address, city, country, IP address, and browser information. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of certain features. The Personal Information you provide is used for such purposes as allowing you to interact with other users, improving the content of the Website, customizing the advertising and content you see, and communicating with you.

Personal Information Collected Automatically:

We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with our Website or services. Code Fellows automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information, and the page you requested.

Generally, our service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our site and its components, similar to TV ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show. Code Fellows only uses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often users use parts of the Website or services so that we can make the Website appealing to as many users as possible, and improve those services. As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate information to our partners about how our users, collectively, use our site. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use their services and our Website, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal online experience. Again, Code Fellows never discloses aggregate information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally.

Email Communications:

We may receive a confirmation when you open an email from Code Fellows if your computer supports this type of program. Code Fellows uses this confirmation to help us make emails more interesting and helpful, and to improve our service. If you do not want to receive email or other mail from us, please contact us.

What About Cookies?

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in our site are visited and by how many people. Code Fellows cookies do not collect Personal Information, and we do not combine the general information collected through cookies with other Personal Information to tell us who you are or what your screen name or email address is. Most browsers have an option for turning off the cookie feature, which will prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, as well as (depending on the sophistication of your browser software) allowing you to decide on acceptance of each new cookie in a variety of ways. We strongly recommend that you leave the cookies activated, however, because cookies enable you to take advantage of some of our Website’s most attractive features.

Will Code Fellows Share Any of the Personal Information it Receives?

Personal Information about our users is an integral part of our business. We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information to anyone. We share your Personal Information only as described below.

Protection of Code Fellows and Others: We may release Personal Information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with that law; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Code Fellows, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

If you do not wish to receive email or other mail from us, please please contact us. Please note that if you do not want to receive legal notices from us, such as this Privacy Policy, those legal notices will still govern your use of the Code Fellows Website, and you are responsible for reviewing such legal notices for changes.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

Code Fellows may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time. Use of information we collect now is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time such information is used. If we make changes in the way we use Personal Information, we will notify you by posting an announcement on our Website or sending you an email. Users are bound by any changes to the Privacy Policy when he or she uses the Website after such changes have been first posted.
