2 Drops Privacy Policy

Yuval Schwartz ("Schwartz") operates 2drops.com. It's Schwartz's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Schwartz 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. Schwartz's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Schwartz's visitors use its website.

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

Correspondence messages are sometimes viewed by Schwartz for the purpose of quality assurance. Schwartz only discloses this information under the same circumstances that it discloses personally identifying information as described below.

Short portions (approximately 150 words) of translators' work may be reviewed by other translators on the site to ensure quality.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Schwartz's websites choose to interact with Schwartz in ways that require Schwartz to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Schwartz gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask users interested in translation services ("translatees") who sign up at 2drops.com to provide an email address, and we ask translators who sign up at 2drops.com to provide an email address, their source and target languages, their expertise and their fee for translation, summarizing or proofreading services (henceforth, jointly and separately, "translation services"). Schwartz collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Schwartz. Schwartz 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.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Schwartz 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 Schwartz's behalf or to provide services available at Schwartz's website, 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 Schwartz's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Schwartz 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, Schwartz discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Schwartz believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Schwartz, third parties or the public at large. 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. Schwartz takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
