Like most website operators, our websites collect 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. We may collect, examine and/or create reports for internal use only of non-personally-identifying information in order to better understand how visitors use its website.
Potentially Personally-Identifying Information
We also may collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses. However, we do not use such information to identify our visitors and we do not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances as described below.
Certain visitors to our websites choose to interact with it in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we may ask visitors who sign up at our website to provide a username and e-mail address. Those who engage in transactions with us, such as by purchasing products or services online, are asked to provide additional information, including, as necessary, the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, we collect such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with our websites or with us. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Moreover, visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, but this may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities or in completing transactions with us.
We take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying information.
We may disclose potentially personally-identifying information in the following circumstances: (1) for internal purposes or to process transactions as described above; (2) to our employees, contractors, and affiliates on a need to know basis in order to process such information on our behalf or to provide services available at our websites; (3) when we are required to do so by law; or (4) when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect our property or rights, or those of third parties or the public at large.
We will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying information.
If you are a registered user at our websites and have supplied your e-mail address, we may occasionally send you an e-mail to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with us and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support e-mail 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.
