Trava Privacy Policy

Trava websites (collectively "travasecurity.com” in this document) refer to sites hosted on the Trava, and other related domains and subdomains thereof. This privacy policy describes how Trava uses and protects any information that you give us. We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. If you provide us with personal information through Trava, you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Trava 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. Trava’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Trava’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Trava may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Trava also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Trava does not use IP addresses to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Trava choose to interact with Trava in ways that require Trava to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Trava gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our forums to provide a username and email address.

In each case, Trava collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Trava. Trava does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities, like purchasing a WordCamp ticket.

All of the information that is collected on Trava will be handled in accordance with GDPR legislation.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Trava discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of project administrators, employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Travas behalf or to provide services available through Trava, 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 Trava, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

Trava will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to project administrators, employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, Trava discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, if you give permission to have your information shared, or when Trava believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Trava, third parties, or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of a Trava website and have supplied your email address, Trava 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 Trava and our products. We primarily use our blog 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. Trava takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Use of personal information

We use the information you provide to register for an account, attend our events, receive newsletters, use certain other services, or participate in the WordPress open source project in any other way.

We will not sell or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.

We would like to send you email marketing communication which may be of interest to you from time to time. If you have consented to marketing, you may opt out later.

You have a right at any time to stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If you no longer wish to be contacted for marketing purposes, please click on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email.

Legal grounds for processing personal information

We rely on one or more of the following processing conditions:

our legitimate interests in the effective delivery of information and services to you;
explicit consent that you have given;
legal obligations.

Retention of personal information

We will retain your personal information on our systems only for as long as we need to, for the programs that support Trava. We keep contact information (such as mailing list information) until a user unsubscribes or requests that we delete that information from our live systems. If you choose to unsubscribe from a mailing list, we may keep certain limited information about you so that we may honor your request.
