Your privacy is critically important to us. At Baystash we have a few fundamental principles:
    •    We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
    •    We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, to protect our rights or as otherwise disclosed in here.
    •    We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our services.
    •    Your trust is the most important thing to us. We will never do anything evil with your information that could break this trust.
Below is our Privacy Policy which incorporates these goals and promises.
If you have questions about this policy, please contact our support team at help@baystash.com.
VerticalScope Inc. operates the website located at www.baystash.com (“Website” or “Baystash”) as well as mobile applications available on application stores including the Apple App Store, Google Play Store and Amazon Kindle App Store (each, an “App”). It is Baystash’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our service. This Privacy Policy applies to visitors of our Website as well as users who register for an account through the Website and/or App.
Website Visitors
Like most website operators, Baystash 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. Baystash’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Baystash’s visitors use its service. From time to time, Baystash may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, for example, by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its service.
To ensure the safety of our users, Baystash also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users participating in Baystash communities.
Social Log-in
You have the option to register for an account using your account credentials with third-party social platform providers such as Facebook. If you register using your third-party account credentials, we will also collect and use the personal information associated with your third-party account according to this Privacy Policy. The information we will have access to in respect of your third-party account will depend on the applicable third-party platform provider’s privacy policy as well as any applicable privacy preferences you may have selected in respect of your third-party account.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Baystash’s service choose to interact with Baystash in ways that require Baystash to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Baystash gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for Baystash to provide an email address. In each case, Baystash collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Baystash. Baystash does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Aggregated Statistics
Baystash may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its service. For instance, Baystash may monitor the most popular items. Baystash may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Baystash does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Baystash 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 Baystash’s behalf or to provide services available through the Website and/or App, 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. Baystash 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, Baystash discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Baystash believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Baystash, third parties or the public at large. Our service providers may host data in the United States, and accordingly your personal information may be made available to government agencies in the United States if our service providers receive a government request for access.
Baystash takes commercially reasonable measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
Communications
If you are a registered user of Baystash and have supplied your email address, Baystash 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 Baystash and our products. If you are located in a jurisdiction that requires opt-in consent for such communications, we will only send you such messages if you opt-in to receive them. 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, and you may unsubscribe at any time.
