Customers can embed the content hosted at “Just Comments” into their own websites (Customers' Websites) using “Widget” which considered to be part of the website Customers are owners of the content and are responsible for it.

Website Visitors

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

“Just Comments” also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Customers' Websites. “Just Comments” only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to administrators of Customers' Websites where the comment was left.

Those who engage in transactions with “Just Comments” are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, “Just Comments” collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with “Just Comments”. “Just Comments” 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.

The information we receive depends on which services you authorize and any options that are available.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, “Just Comments” discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when “Just Comments” believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of “Just Comments”, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an “Just Comments” website and have supplied your email address, “Just Comments” 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 “Just Comments” 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. “Just Comments” takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
