This website may contain links to websites operated by third parties, which we provide as a convenience to users. Links we provide do not imply our endorsement of any of those third parties; any of their products, services, or publications; or any material on their sites. Because such linked sites are not under our control, access to and use of any of those sites and their content is at your own risk, and we disclaim all liability with regard to such access or use.
Unless otherwise set forth in a written agreement between you and AquaBounty, you must adhere to our linking policy: (i) any links to this website must be a text-only link clearly marked “AquaBounty website”; (ii) the appearance, position, and other aspects of the link may not be such as to damage or dilute the goodwill associated with our names and trademarks or imply that your organization or entity is sponsored by, affiliated with, or associated with AquaBounty; (iii) the link must “point” to the URL http://aquabounty.com and not to other web pages within this website; (iv) when selected by a user, the link must either spawn a new independent window or overtake the parent or topmost frame to display this website full-screen and not within a “frame” on the linking website; and (v) we reserve the right to revoke our consent to the link at any time and in our sole discretion.
This Policy describes our practices with regard to information about you that is obtained, either directly or indirectly, through aquabounty.com.

What Information Do We Collect?
We are very cognizant of the amount of private information that is collected these days, and we have no wish to add any more of your personal information to the Big Data warehouse. As such, we made the choice not to collect any information about the visitors to this website and to limit, as much as we can, the information our website vendors see in the course of providing their services. Rather than use “cookies” or other methods of collecting or storing your information, we elected to create this website using the open-source software WordPress and, using the JetPack plug-in, have WordPress.com provide us with de-identified usage metrics like the number of unique visitors we get, what countries those visitors are from, and how often individual website pages are visited.
When you visit a website, your browser sends that site the unique internet address (known as the Internet Protocol, or IP, address) of the device on which you are browsing and the unique identifier (the Uniform Resource Locator, or URL) of each page on the site you request during your visit. It may also send certain data about the equipment and software being used to browse, information about any search terms used to find the site, and where you were navigating from. While we do not collect any of this data, it is automatically passed to WordPress.com by the JetPack plug-in so that they can compile the information and provide us with the de-identified usage metrics.
How Do We Use That Information?
We don’t have any of your personal information to use, but we use the statistics provided to us by WordPress.com to improve the functionality of this website and determine what information to provide. For example, we use the number of visitors using certain portions or features of this website to guide what information to provide and how to post it.
How Do We Share That Information?
As described above, we do not collect any information about you and therefore have no private information to share with third parties. That said, as described above, WordPress.com collects the information passed to it by the JetPack plug-in in the course of providing its services. Please see the documentation and privacy policies of WordPress.com and GoDaddy.com, our web server host, for more information on how they handle personal information.
Of course, if required to do so by law or if we believed that it was necessary to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of AquaBounty or any of its affiliates, customers, or vendors (including their employees and consultants), we would request whatever personal information WordPress.com might have and disclose it to third parties as necessary to stay compliant and avoid harm.
