BrickFTP™

Privacy Policy

We recognize that your data is very personal and sensitive. This Privacy Policy explains our commitment to protecting your privacy, with regard to your use of brickftp.com ("Web Site") and the BrickFTP™ asset hosting service available from the Web Site ("Service").

Information We Collect

  • We treat different types of information differently.

  • One type of information we collect is the actual contents of the files uploaded to your BrickFTP™ account ("Site Content").

  • Additionally, we collect "metadata" about your Site Content that is distinct from the actual content itself ("Site Metadata"). Site Metadata includes file and folder names, modification dates, permissions, size information and history notification. Site Metadata also includes usernames, group names, user and group settings, and site-wide settings.

  • Site Metadata does not include passwords used by users to access the Service. These passwords are stored in a salted, encrypted format, unless you specifically request that they be stored in cleartext.

  • We also collect usage information customarily logged by web and FTP server software, including the date and time of your visit, the originating IP address, the pages and images requested, and other similar types of information ("Usage Data").

  • Additionally, we collect information from those who communicate with us via e-mail or our website, and information volunteered by consumers, such as the information you provide during account registration and signup ("Registration and Billing Data"), and contact form submissions and E-Mails ("Correspondence Data").

How Information is Used

  • "Site Content" is stored securely and may only be accessed by users on who have been given the appropriate permissions to that Site Content by someone with Site Admin permissions on the account. We will not access this data for any other purpose, except as provided below.

  • "Site Metadata" is used by our software systems to provide the Service and may be displayed, subject to our permissions controls, to users on the account.

  • "Usage Data" and "Correspondence Data" is used to help us understand how the Service and our websites are being used and to help us improve our websites and the Service.

  • "Registration and Billing Data" is used for billing purposes and to notify you about important service-related notices.

  • E-Mail addresses collected will be used to communicate with you regarding the Service. We communicate such things as announcements of new features, changes to Terms of Use/Privacy Policy, information about pricing changes or systems outages, and other Service-related announcements.

  • Unless you request otherwise, we may use the name of your company and screenshots from your website in advertisements promoting BrickFTP™.

  • All information may be disclosed when legally required to do so, at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation, to verify or enforce compliance with the Terms of Use and policies governing the Service and applicable laws or to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Service.

Our Access To Your Site Content and Metadata

  • We have implemented controls designed to prevent our employees or contractors from improperly using your data for purposes other than those set forth in this Privacy Policy.

  • Our front-line employees and contractors, such as customer service agents, do not have any access to your "Site Content". They do, however, have access to "Site Metadata". They will only access "Site Metadata" for the purpose of providing customer support upon request.

  • We may use aggregated information about "Site Metadata" for the purpose of improving the Service. Please name your files such that the mere names of files or folders do not reveal confidential information.

  • We promise not to access your Site Content for any purpose. However, we feel compelled to note that due to the nature of the job, our software developers and database and server administrators may have access to your Site Content while logged in directly to our application servers.

    • These people are all Action Verb, LLC employees (not contractors) located in the United States who have agreed to uphold this Privacy Policy (and its promise to not access your User Content). If they fail to preserve this confidence, they are subject to disciplinary action, including losing their job, and potential criminal prosecution.

    • As of September 16, 2013, there are four people at Action Verb, LLC with this level of access to our application servers, and all of whom have a legitimate business need to be able to access our application servers.

    • All access to our application servers by our employees is logged.
