This website is owned and operated by FairStreet Inc. (the "Company"). The Company respects your privacy and, through this privacy policy (the "Policy") page, intends to inform you about the collection and use of information about you, if any.

This Policy covers the website and any affiliate websites operated by the Company including all sub-domains of (the "Website") and its affiliate domains.

This privacy policy is based on the Privacy Policy of Automattic and is released under a Creative Commons Sharealike license. If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.

In general, our privacy is governed by the following principles:

  • We don't ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can't stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don't share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don't store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

Website Visitors

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

The Company also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. The Company only discloses logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to the Website choose to interact with the Company in ways that require the Company to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that the Company gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who register on the Website to provide a name and email address. Those who engage in transactions with the Website - by contributing or investing money to projects on the Website, for example - a name, email and delivery address might be asked for so that the project owners might be able to send them the incentives promised in return of the investment/contribution. In such cases, the Company collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to enable the Project owner to ship the incentives to the visitor. The Company may also share the visitors' email address with the Project Owners to enable them to thank the visitors personally, if they so desire. The Company does not disclose any other 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.

Payment Information

The Company does not collect any Credit Card, Debit Card, Bank Account Numbers or any such accounting and billing related information from the visitors. All such transactions are conducted through WePay Inc. and all such information are directly entered into WePay's website - either through a pop-up box or via a redirect to WePay's website, as the case may be.

Aggregated Statistics

Company may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. However, the Company does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

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

Cookies and HTML5 Local Storage

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. Similarly, html5 local storage is a technology provided by the new browsers to store certain string data on the visitor's computer and retrieve and transmit to the Website subsequently. The Company uses cookies and html5 local storage to help the Website identify and track visitors, their usage of the Website, and their website access preferences. Website visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies and disallow html5 local storage before using Company’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of the Website may not function properly without the aid of cookies or html5 local storage.

Business Transfers

If the Company, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that the Company 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 the Company may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, the Company may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Company’s sole discretion. The Company encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
