The information we gather
We gather two types of information about this website's users:
(1) Non-personally identifiable information: When visitors come to the website, we collect and aggregate information indicating, among other things, which pages were visited, the order in which they were visited and which hyperlinks were "clicked." Collecting such information involves the logging of IP addresses, operating system and browser software used by each visitor to the website. Although such information is not personally identifiable, we can determine from the IP address a visitor's Internet Service Provider and the geographic location of his or her point of connectivity.
The non-personally identifiable information we collect helps us diagnose problems with our server, administer the website, identify the most popular areas of the website and determine the effectiveness of our promotional activities.
For the same purposes, we use "cookies" -that is, small text files placed on your computer's hard drive -to help us determine the type of content and sites to which you link, the length of time you spend at any particular area of the website and your usage of our services offered via the website.
Essentially, cookies are your identification cards for our computers or servers, that placed them there. Cookies are only read by the server that placed them and are unable to execute any code or virus. Cookies allow us to serve you better and more efficiently and to personalize your experience at the website. Nevertheless, you should be able to control how and whether cookies will be accepted by your web browser. For more information on how to do so, please refer to the documentation accompanying your browser.
(2) Personally identifiable information: In certain areas of the website, the website may require -that you provide personally identifiable information (including, for example, postal code and e-mail address). Doteasy, as host of the website, has access to this information. In addition, when registering to set up an account to use certain services of the website such as e-mail, chat rooms and forums, or to receive certain newsletters or specifically targeted information ("Services"), we do require that you provide both your name and your current, valid e-mail address.
We do not control the acts of this website's members or visitors. All members and visitors should be aware that when they disclose personally identifiable information in a bulletin board, chat room, guest book, or other forum, the information may be collected and used by others to send that person unsolicited e-mail from other parties. In the event that you encounter any user on this website who is improperly collecting or using information about you or other users, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
How we use (and do not use) the information we gather
Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the different ways we use the information that we gather. Keep in mind that, while we encourage all third parties involved to adhere to our policies regarding the privacy of this website's visitors and members and to otherwise handle personal information in a responsible manner, we cannot and do not assume any responsibility for any actions or omissions of third parties, including the manner in which they use information received either from us or independently. Nevertheless, in the event you encounter any third party associated with or who claims association with us who you feel is improperly collecting or using information about you, please contact email@example.com.We will be happy to forward your message to the third party.
(1) How we use (and do not use) non-personally identifiable information: We use non-personally identifiable information in aggregate form to build higher quality, more useful online services by performing statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behaviour of the website's visitors and by measuring demographics and interests regarding specific areas of the website. The website may contain links to other Internet websites, including co-branded or other affiliated sites that may or may not be owned or operated by us. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites, including such sites' use of any information (such as IP number, browser type, or operating system) collected when visitors to the website click through links to those sites. Even though such information might not identify you personally, we strongly encourage you to become familiar with the privacy practices of those sites.
like to discontinue receiving promotional information from such third parties, please contact those third parties directly or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We limit our own e-mail contact and solicitations to those users who have not "opted out" of receiving such communications. The solicitations are limited in that they will clearly indicate the originator of the e-mail and provide the user with a method of "opting out" of receiving future communications of a similar nature.
Finally, we may use individual members' data to "pre-populate" forms which are displayed for the purpose of collecting individual data by us. In no case does pre-populating a form transfer any data to any third party. Only if the user voluntarily requests that such data be transferred will any transfer take place -for example, if/when a user clicks a "submit form" button or other button.
We reserve the right to release any and all information contained within our access logs concerning any visitor when that visitor is in violation of our Terms of Service or other published guidelines, or partakes (or is reasonably suspected of partaking) in any illegal activity, even without a subpoena, warrant, or other court order, and to release such information in response to discovery requests or in response to any circumstance which we, in our sole discretion, deem an emergency. We cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who may be using our servers or services for illegal activities. We also reserve the right to report any suspected illegal activity to law enforcement for investigation or prosecution.
Changing/deleting personal information
If you would like to have your personally identifiable information changed or removed from our database, please contact us at email@example.com we will use reasonable efforts to comply with your request. Keep in mind, however, that there will be residual information that will remain within our databases, access logs, and other records, which may or may not contain such personally identifiable information. The residual information will not be used for commercial purposes. However, we reserve the right, from time to time, to re-contact former customers or users of this website.
