Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices. Please read this privacy statement closely. You accept the terms of this private statement by continuing to use Fairwinds’s products and services.
Fairwinds will never sell, rent, barter, trade, distribute or lease personal information to outside parties unless Fairwinds obtains customer permission or disclosure is required by law.
Fairwinds uses the information customers provide only to the extent necessary to offer our services to our customers. Fairwinds believes in both minimizing the data that is collected and limiting its use and purpose to only that: 1) for which we have been given permission by customers, 2) as necessary to deliver our services, and 3) as we might be required or permitted for legal, compliance or other lawful purposes.
The only individually identifiable information thatFairwinds collects about you is that which you choose to share with us in registration, such as your name, billing address, email address, phone, usernames and passwords. This information will be closely protected and used for internal purposes only. Fairwinds uses return email addresses to answer the email Fairwinds receives. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties. Fairwinds will never willfully release your personal information to any third party unless you direct us to do so or disclosure is required by law.
Fairwinds also may collect personal information when you request assistance from our customer support team (e.g., phone number, email address,) and may collect additional information that you choose to share with our customer support team.
Fairwinds also collects information to evaluate aggregate site usage. Fairwinds may automatically collect certain usage information from customers, such as Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses, log files, unique device identifiers, pages viewed, browser type, any links you click on to leave or interact with our services and other usage information collected from cookies and other tracking technologies as noted below. For example, we collect IP addresses to track and aggregate non-personal information, such as using IP addresses to monitor the regions from which users navigate to our Services. We also collect IP addresses from users when they log into theirFairwinds databases as part of our log-in process and for enhanced identity authentication and authorization security.
Fairwinds’s services may change over time and we may introduce new features that may collect new or different types of information.
Fairwinds is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities.
If a password is used to help protect your accounts and personal information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. Do not share this information with anyone. If you are sharing a computer with anyone you should always choose to log out before leaving a site or service to protect access to your information from subsequent users.
Connecting or Linking Your Fairwinds Database with Third Party Services
We work with other companies or developers who provide products and services that you may choose to sync, link or otherwise connect with your Fairwinds database. If you choose to make use of such related products or services, we may exchange that information, including your personal information, information from your database, and information about how you interact with each company’s service or product with one or more third parties. This routine exchange of information is necessary to maintain business operations and to provide the requested services.
In accordance with and as permitted by applicable law and regulations, we will retain your information as long as necessary to serve you, to maintain your account for as long as your account is active, or as otherwise needed to operate our business.
When your account expires or becomes disabled, Fairwinds may retain the data for up to 30 days before it is permanently removed from all of our systems. We will retain information about our customers as required by applicable regulations and to comply with our legal and reporting obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements, complete any outstanding transactions and for the detection and prevention of fraud.

As a result of providing your contact information, Fairwinds may market to you, including sending promotional communications and relevant offers.

Please note that if you do opt-out of receiving marketing- related emails from us, we may still use your email address to send you important administrative messages.
International Data Transfers
In accordance with and as permitted by applicable law and regulations, we reserve the right to transfer your information, process and store it outside your country of residence to wherever we or our third party service providers operate.

We will occasionally update this privacy statement to reflect changes in our services and customer feedback. When we post changes to this Statement, we will revise the “last updated” date at the top of this statement.
