As consumers ourselves, we expect every company to respect our individual privacy. As such, we maintain a high standard for your privacy. Your data is your data, and we work hard to keep it that way. Our procedures as they relate to your data are outlined below, in an effort to keep you informed on our decisions and earn your trust in all that we do.
If you are a user having your usual residence in the European Union, you should see our special Section on your GDPR rights.
When you access the official Bonfire Services, certain client information and essential and nonessential technical information (collectively “access information”) listed below is automatically collected. No other information is collected through the official Bonfire Services, except when you deliberately send it to us (for example, by clicking a link to send us an e-mail). Examples of the information you might choose to send us are listed below as “optional information.”
As a general rule, Bonfire does not track individual visitor profiles. We do, however, analyze aggregate traffic/access information for resource management and site planning purposes. Ingenious, Inc. reserves the right to use log detail to investigate resource management or security concerns.
Client information is used to route the requested Web page to your computer for viewing. In theory, the requested Web page and the routing information could be intercepted by other entities involved in transmitting the requested page to you. We do not control the privacy practices of those entities.
Essential and nonessential technical information lets us respond to your request in an appropriate format [or in a personalized manner] and helps us plan Web site improvements. To expedite this process, the Bonfire website may use “cookies.” Usually a cookie enables our Web site to tailor what you see according to the way you entered the site (i.e., if you entered by pushing a button identifying yourself as a student, your subsequent views of information might be tailored for student audiences).
We also use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our Web site. For example, we may determine that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our Web site, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out a particular registration form. But we do not disclose information that could identify those specific individuals.
Optional information enables us to provide services or information tailored more specifically to your needs, to forward your message or inquiry to another entity that is better able to do so, and to plan Web site improvements.
We use the information you provide about yourself or about someone else when placing a request for service only to complete that order or request. We do not share this information with outside parties, except to the extent necessary to complete that order or request.
We generally use return e-mail addresses only to answer the e-mail we receive. Such addresses are generally not used for any other purpose and by policy are not shared with outside parties. We never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the purpose described.
Please note that we may still use any aggregated and de-identified Personal Information that does not identify any individual, and may also retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
Sometimes we’ll send administrative messages about account or Services changes via text message or email, e.g. when you request to reset your password. It may not be possible to opt out of administrative messages. You can opt out of most other types of messages, e.g. new feature emails.
Bonfire is operated by Ingenious, Inc. and is intended for use by adults. Ingenious, Inc.— and subsequently, Bonfire—does not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13. If we learn that we have collected Personal Information of a child under the age of 13 that was not supplied to us voluntarily, we will delete that data from our systems.
Children – Some internet sites may ask you to share information about yourself. Before sending any information about yourself over the Internet to us or anyone else, be sure to ask your parents for permission.
Parents – Bonfire recommends that parents take an active role in their children’s use of the Internet. We encourage you to talk to your children about safe and responsible use of their personal information while using the Internet. Here are some tips:
Bonfire uses third-party vendors and hosting partners, such as Amazon, for hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology we need to run our Services. We maintain two types of logs: server logs and event logs.
If you have a Bonfire account, you can access and modify your personal information, or delete your account here.
To protect information from accidental or malicious destruction, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems. If you delete your account, your account and content may be unrecoverable.
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 (like using a strong password).
