Like most website operators, Pillar.hr 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. Pillar.hr’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Pillar.hr’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Pillar.hr may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Pillar.hr also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Pillar.hr does not use IP addresses to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Certain visitors to Pillar.hr choose to interact with Pillar.hr in ways that require Pillar.hr to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Pillar.hr gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our forums to provide a username and email address.
In each case, Pillar.hr collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Pillar.hr. Pillar.hr 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, like purchasing a WordCamp ticket.
All of the information that is collected on Pillar.hr will be handled in accordance with GDPR legislation.
Pillar.hr discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of project administrators, employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Pillar.hr’s behalf or to provide services available through Pillar.hr, 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 Pillar.hr, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
Pillar.hr will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to project administrators, employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, Pillar.hr discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, if you give permission to have your information shared, or when Pillar.hr believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Pillar.hr, third parties, or the public at large.
If you are a registered user of a Pillar.hr website and have supplied your email address, Pillar.hr 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 Pillar.hr 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. Pillar.hr takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
