Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Q5 Labs LLC we have a few fundamental principles:

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals: (Note, we’ve modeled this privacy policy after the policy of Automattic Inc. ( which is available under a Creative Commons Sharealike license, which means you’re more than welcome to steal it and repurpose it for your own use, just make sure to replace references to us with ones to you, and put a link to somewhere on your site. They spent a lot of money and time on the below, and felt other people shouldn’t need to do the same.)
If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team at It is Q5’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Website Visitors
Like most website operators, Q5 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. Q5’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Q5’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Q5 may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Q5 also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blogs. Q5 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 blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Q5’s websites choose to interact with Q5 in ways that require Q5 to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Q5 gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with Q5 – by purchasing products, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Q5 collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Q5. Q5 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.
Aggregated Statistics
Q5 may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Q5 may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Q5 does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Q5 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 Q5’s behalf or to provide services available at Q5’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 Q5’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Q5 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, Q5 discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Q5 believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Q5, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Q5 website and have supplied your email address, Q5 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 Q5 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. Q5 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. Q5 uses cookies to help Q5 identify and track visitors, their usage of Q5 website, and their website access preferences. Q5 visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Q5’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Q5’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.
Business Transfers
If Q5, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Q5 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 Q5 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 Q5 and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.
Privacy Policy Changes
Although most changes are likely to be minor, Q5 may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Q5’s sole discretion. Q5 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.
