Privacy Policy

Below you'll find the Gyde privacy policy. It's based on the Automatic Privacy Policy which is licenced under the Creative Commons Share Alike Licence. If you borrow bits and pieces from here you're obligated to share it under the same licence, and provide attribution.

Gyde Pty. Ltd. (“Gyde”) operates the website Gyde. It is Gyde’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

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

Gyde also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users, this information is not disclosed to any third parties, and is used primarily for offering location specific information (such as movie titles available from your local iTunes store)

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Gyde’s websites choose to interact with Gyde in ways that require Gyde to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Gyde gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, Gyde collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Gyde. Gyde 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.

Social Media Authentication

When you connect your social network profile (ie. Facebook or Twitter) to your Gyde account we store some of your information on our servers. We retreive and store your name, handle/username, email address, and profile image. We also cache a list of your connections on that network (without any of their personal information such as their email), so that we can automatically connect your accounts on Gyde should any of them register. We do not send unsolicted messages through your social networks targeted at your friends. We may post on your behalf, but all of our social sharing systems are currently opt-in.

Aggregated Statistics

Gyde may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Gyde may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Gyde does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Gyde 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 Gyde’s behalf or to provide services available at Gyde’s websites, 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 Gyde’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Gyde 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, Gyde discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Gyde believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Gyde, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Gyde website and have supplied your email address, Gyde 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 Gyde and our products. 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. Gyde takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Gyde uses cookies to help Gyde identify and track visitors, their usage of Gyde website, and their website access preferences. Gyde visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Gyde’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Gyde’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Gyde, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Gyde goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Gyde may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.


Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Gyde and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Gyde may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Gyde’s sole discretion. Gyde encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. We will endeavour to publish notice of significant changes to our blog, but we make no guarantees. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
