To allow visitors to ask and comment on our webpage we use a discussion system called Disqus.
To do so we embed code that Disqus provide and we do not control ourselves. Disqus anonymously tracks visitors to pages like we do. They also remember who you are if you log in to any Disqus service, so you can comment on any website using their tool.
Logging in to Disqus can be done in many ways, including via Facebook. If you log in via social network, Disqus will be able to link your activity to that network. In this way, your Disqus activity may be personally identifiable.
Disqus will know what pages you viewed on our site and what you wrote in your comments. Of course all comments you leave are also publicly visible on the Internet alongside your name, so we do not imagine this is a concern for many people.
We use PayPal as payment providers to bill for our products online (to process credit cards and accept payment). They will have access to your personal and payment information. When paying by credit card, Duckademy does not ever have any access to your credit card details.
We share information with these companies only to the extent necessary for the purposes of processing payments you make via our website.
