Privacy Policy

Stufftopia operates a website/web-app (www.stufftopia.com) and blog (blog.stufftopia.com), collectively referred to as the website. It is Stufftopia’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Stufftopia 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.

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

Stufftopia also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for users interacting with the webpage. This information is stored in server logs used by most website operators in an attempt to monitor intrusions on our secure data. This information is held securely and only accessible in the circumstances mentioned further below.

Due to the Geolocation component of “finding stuff to do”, Stufftopia will also request your geographical location. If you refuse this request, much of the Stufftopia website’s and web-app’s functionality will still work but not in its entirety and we may attempt to guess your location based on your public available IP address. This information is not publicly visible and it is stored only for the duration of your time using the website and will not be used to identify you personally.

Aggregated Statistics

Stufftopia may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Stufftopia may monitor the most popular geographical areas, categories and venues on the Stufftopia.com site. Stufftopia may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Stufftopia does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Stufftopia 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 Stufftopia’s behalf or to provide services available at Stufftopia’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 Stufftopia’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Stufftopia 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, Stufftopia discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Stufftopia believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Stufftopia, third parties or the public at large. If you register your e-mail address to find out more about Stufftopia, Stufftopia 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 Stufftopia and our products. We primarily use our various product blog and social media accounts 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. Stufftopia takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Stufftopia uses cookies to help Stufftopia identify and track visitors, their usage of Stufftopia website, and their website access preferences. Stufftopia visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Stufftopia’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Stufftopia’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Stufftopia, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Stufftopia goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Stufftopia may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any part of our website may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Stufftopia and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Foursquare Data

Stufftopia’s location data, including images, is provided by Foursquare. If you are a registered Foursquare user and notice any of your personal information on the Stufftopia website, please review the Foursquare Privacy Policy for more information.

Privacy Policy Changes

Stufftopia may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Stufftopia’s sole discretion. Stufftopia encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
