Like most website operators, myFIVEby 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. myFIVEby’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how myFIVEby’s visitors use its website. From time to time, myFIVEby may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
myFIVEby also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. myFIVEby only IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described in the next section.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
myFIVEby 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 myFIVEby’s behalf or to provide services available at myFIVEby’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 myFIVEby’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. myFIVEby 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, myFIVEby discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when myFIVEby believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of myFIVEby, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an myFIVEby website and have supplied your email address, myFIVEby 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 myFIVEby and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs 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. myFIVEby takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
