This Privacy Policy governs the manner in which myTriib collects, uses, maintains and discloses information collected from Users (each, a "User") of the website ("Site"). This privacy policy applies to the Site and all products and services offered by myTriib.

Personal identification information

We may collect personal identification information from Users in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, when Users visit our site, register on the site, and in connection with other activities, services, features or resources we make available on our Site. Users may be asked for, as appropriate, name, email address. Users may, however, visit our Site anonymously. We will collect personal identification information from Users only if they voluntarily submit such information to us. Users can always refuse to supply personally identification information, except that it will prevent them from engaging in certain Site related activities.

Non-personal identification information

We may collect non-personal identification information about Users whenever they interact with our Site. Non-personal identification information may include the browser name, the type of computer and technical information about Users means of connection to our Site, such as the operating system and the Internet service providers utilized and other similar information.

Web browser cookies

Our Site may use "cookies" to enhance User experience. User's web browser places cookies on their hard drive for record-keeping purposes and sometimes to track information about them. User may choose to set their web browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If they do so, note that some parts of the Site may not function properly.

How we use collected information

myTriib may collect and use Users personal information for the following purposes:

  1. To personalize User experience
    We may use information in the aggregate to understand how our Users as a group use the services and resources provided on our Site.
  2. To send periodic emails
    We may use the email address to respond to their inquiries, questions, and/or other requests.

How we protect your information

In an age of mass-surveillance and the collection, sale and exploitation of User data, myTriib takes privacy seriously. Our servers are deliberately hosted with Orangewebsite in Iceland, a company within a country that takes privacy and freedom of speech seriously. Your connections to our servers are encrypted using the latest SSL standard. We adopt appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your personal information, username, password, transaction information and data stored on our Site.

Your personal information and User-generated content

We do not sell, trade, or rent Users personal identification information to others. User-generated content will remain the property of the author at all times. myTriib will not utilise User-generated content without obtaining written permission from the author. myTriib personnel will not access User content unless there is reasonable indication the User is in breach of myTriib terms, or that by not doing so will result in myTriib staff being prosecuted for a criminal offence in our country (Australia). In this event all affected members will be notified.

myTriib will analyse database information in order to enhance myTriib User experience. Specifically profile questionnaire scores will be analysed in a de-identified and aggregate form for:

  1. Factor analyses with the aim to improve the questionnaire by shortening or asking more appropriate questions, including by removing redundant questions and/or merging others.
  2. Discriminant function analyses with the aim to identify any organic groupings that are occurring in the formation of triibs and using these to assist optimal triib formation.

The overall aim of database analysis is to improve the relevance of the myTriib profile questionnaire and improve the membership relevance of the triibs (the social scientist in Chris lives on!). Beyond this limited use, myTriib will not use or disclose User database data unless not doing so will result in myTriib staff being prosecuted for a criminal offence in our country (Australia). In this event all affected members will be notified.
