Fundamental Principles of Our Privacy Policy

Your privacy is extremely important to us. We have a few fundamental principles that we adhere to:

Those are our guiding principles when it comes to how we treat your data. Below are the specifics of our privacy policy. Astute readers will note that much of our privacy policy is based heavily on the Creative Commons Privacy Policy.

Privacy Policy

This Master Privacy Policy ("Privacy Policy") explains the collection, use, and disclosure of "personal information" by Moon River Software, Inc ("MRS"), a Massachusetts Corporation. This Privacy Policy includes products and services provided through websites that Moon River Software operates, which include, but are not limited to, http://auditshark.com and http://auditshark.net, (collectively, together with all sub-domains thereof including, without limitation, the "Websites"). This Privacy Policy does not apply to any of the websites operated by affiliates of Moon River Software.

This Privacy Policy also explains our commitment to you with respect to our use and disclosure of non personal browsing and site usage data that Moon River Software collects as the provider of the Websites. That commitment is contained in a "Data Usage Policy," below.

As used in this policy, "personal information" means information that would allow a party to identify you such as, for example, your name, address or location, telephone number or email address.

By accessing the Websites or using the AuditShark applications, you are accepting and agreeing to the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

Disclosures of Personal Information

In general, it is not Moon River Software's practice to disclose personal information to third parties. We may share personal information in two instances:

First, Moon River Software may share personal information with our contractors and service providers in order to maintain, enhance, or add to the functionality of the Websites or third party products that we integrate with. A prime example of this is MailChimp, which is our email service provider for our newsletters and mailing lists. It would be impossible for them to send email on our behalf without your email address. Another example would be Stripe, which is the service provider we use for processing payments.

Second, we may disclose your personal information to third parties in a good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) take action regarding suspected illegal activities; (b) enforce or apply our Master Terms of Use and Privacy Policy; (c) comply with legal process, such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, or court order; or (d) protect our rights, reputation, and property, or that of our users, affiliates, or the public.

If Moon River Software is required to provide a third party with your personal information (whether by subpoena or otherwise), then provided we have collected and retained an email address for you, Moon River Software will use reasonable means to notify you promptly of that event, unless prohibited by law or Moon River Software is otherwise advised not to notify you on the advice of legal counsel.

Data Usage Policy: Non Personal Browsing and Site Usage Information

Non Personal Browsing Information We Collect. When you use the Websites, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) may collect information indirectly and automatically (through, for example, the use of your "IP address") about your activities while visiting the Websites and information about the browser you are using. In addition, whenever you log into a website, our servers (which, again, may be hosted by a third party service provider) keep a log of the pages you visit and when you visit them.

Notice. If Moon River Software is required to provide a third party with your non personal browsing information or to log in on behalf of a user (whether by subpoena or otherwise), then Moon River Software will use reasonable means to notify you promptly of that event, unless Moon River Software is prohibited by law from doing so or is otherwise advised not to notify you on the advice of legal counsel.

No Selling or Sharing. Except in the unique situations identified in this Privacy Policy, Moon River Software does not sell or otherwise voluntarily provide the non personal browsing information we collect about you or your website usage to third parties.

Any other non-personal information that we collect which is not described specifically in this Privacy Policy will only be collected and used in accordance with the Principles.

Aggregated Statistics

Moon River Software may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites or within its Applications. For instance, Moon River Software may monitor the most popular Control Points in the AuditShark application or use information on the most commonly used features to direct development efforts. Moon River Software may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Moon River Software does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described in this Privacy Policy.

Reorganization or Spin-Offs

Moon River Software may transfer some or all of your personal and/or non personal browsing information to a third party as a result of a reorganization, spin-off or similar transaction. Upon such transfer, the acquirer’s privacy policy will apply. In such event, Moon River Software will use reasonable efforts to notify you and to ensure that at the time of the transaction the acquirer’s privacy policy complies with the Principles.

Third-Party Sites

The Websites may include links to other websites. You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party sites. This Privacy Policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, such other websites.

Special Note to International Users

The Websites are hosted in the United States. If you are accessing the Websites from the European Union, Asia, or any other region with laws or regulations governing personal data collection, use and disclosure that differ from United States laws, please note that you are transferring your personal data to the United States which does not have the same data protection laws as the EU and other regions. By providing your personal data you consent to:

Changes and Updates to this Privacy Policy

We may occasionally update this Privacy Policy. When we do, we will also revise the Effective Date below. We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Policy to stay informed about how we are protecting the personal information we collect. Your continued use of the Websites constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any updates.
