Information We Collect & How We Use It
Star Enterprize doesn’t make money from ads. So we don’t collect data in order to advertise to you. The tracking we do at Star Enterprize is to make our product work as well as possible. This includes basic product functions like allowing our metered paywall to work and key features like personalizing what posts you see based on what we think you’ll like. So, to give you the best possible experience in using the Star Enterprize, we collect information from your interactions with our Services. Some of this information, you actively tell us (such as your email address, which we use to track your account or communicate with you). Other information, we collect based on actions you take while using starenterprizellc.com, such as what pages you view (including how much of a given page and for how long) and your use of product features (like Save to Star Enterprize, highlights, follows, and applause). This information includes records of those interactions, your Internet Protocol address, information about your device (such as device or browser type), and referral information (how you got to a particular page).
We use this information to:
Provide, test, improve, promote and personalize the Services
Fight spam and other forms of abuse
Generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how people use the
Star Enterprize won’t transfer information about you to third parties for the purpose of providing or facilitating third-party advertising to you. We won’t sell information about you to a third-party.
We may transfer your account information with third parties in some circumstances, including: (1) with your consent; (2) to a service provider or partner who meets our data protection standards; (3) with academic or non-profit researchers, with aggregation, anonymization, or pseudonymization; (4) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other legal process; (5) when we have a good faith belief that doing so will help prevent imminent harm to someone.
If we are going to share your information in response to a legal process, we’ll give you notice so you can challenge it (for example by seeking court intervention), unless we’re prohibited by law or believe doing so may endanger others or cause illegal conduct. We will object to legal requests for information about users of our services that we believe are improper.
Star Enterprize uses third-party vendors and hosting partners, such as Amazon, for hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology we need to run Star Enterprize. By using the Services, you authorize the Star Enterprize to transfer, store, and use your information in the United States and any other country where we operate.
Some of the content that you see displayed on Star Enterprize is not hosted by the Star Enterprize. These “embeds” are hosted by a third-party and embedded in a Star Enterprize page so that it appears to be part of that page. For example YouTube or Vimeo videos, Imgur or Giphy gifs, SoundCloud audio files, Twitter tweets, GitHub code snippets, or Scribd documents that appear within a Star Enterprize post. These files send data to the hosted site just as if you were visiting that site directly (for example, when you load a Star Enterprize post page with a YouTube video embedded in it, that video appears because of a pointer to files hosted on YouTube, and in turn, YouTube receives data about your activity, such as your IP address and how much of the video you watch).
Tracking & Cookies
We use browser cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you return to our Services. We use them in various ways, for example, to log you in, remember your preferences (such as default language), evaluate email effectiveness, allow our paywall and meter to function, and personalize content and other services. Without cookies, our metered paywall would not work, so they are necessary to Star Enterprize’s basic functionality.
Star Enterprize saves data about the URLs you Save to Star Enterprize (an optional feature that you may choose to use or decline to use), but we do not otherwise track your visits or activities off Star Enterprize. We track your interactions within the Star Enterprize (which encompasses starenterprizellc.com).
We use encryption (HTTPS/TLS) to protect data transmitted to and from our site. However, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure, so we can’t guarantee security. You use the Service at your own risk, and you’re responsible for taking reasonable measures to secure your account.
Email from Star Enterprize
When you interact with an email sent from Star Enterprize (such as opening an email or clicking on a particular link in an email), we may receive information about that interaction.
We won’t email you to ask for your password or other account information. If you receive such an email, please forward it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can investigate.
