Cookies and Privacy Policy


Your privacy is critically important to us. At Flipping Binary we have a few fundamental 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.
  • On our website, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

Flipping Binary (“Flipping Binary”) operates several websites including It is Flipping Binary’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

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

Flipping Binary also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Flipping Binary does not use such information 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.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Flipping Binary’s websites choose to interact with Flipping Binary in ways that require Flipping Binary to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Flipping Binary gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on an article to provide a username and email address. In each case, Flipping Binary collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Flipping Binary. Flipping Binary 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

Flipping Binary may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Flipping Binary may monitor the most popular articles or use spam screened by the third party services to help identify spam. Flipping Binary may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Flipping Binary does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Flipping Binary 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 Flipping Binary’s behalf or to provide services available at Flipping Binary’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 Flipping Binary’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Flipping Binary 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, Flipping Binary discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Flipping Binary believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Flipping Binary, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Flipping Binary website and have supplied your email address, Flipping Binary 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 Flipping Binary 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. Flipping Binary takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
