It is TechwareGuide’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our blog. We have a few fundamental principles that we follow, like:
- 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 blog, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
Like most website operators, TechwareGuide 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. TechwareGuide’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how TechwareGuide’s visitors use it.
TechwareGuide also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blog. TechwareGuide only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors choose to interact with TechwareGuide in ways that require our blog to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that TechwareGuide gathers’ depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at techwareguide.com to provide a username and email address. In each case, TechwareGuide collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with TechwareGuide. TechwareGuide 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.
TechwareGuide may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors. TechwareGuide may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, TechwareGuide does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
TechwareGuide discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its members that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on TechwareGuide’s behalf or to provide services available at TechwareGuide, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those members may be located outside of your home country; by using our blog, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. TechwareGuide will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its members, as described above, TechwareGuide discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when TechwareGuide believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of TechwareGuide, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of TechwareGuide and have supplied your email address, TechwareGuide 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 TechwareGuide. If you send us a request (for example via 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. TechwareGuide takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If TechwareGuide, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that TechwareGuide goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that are transferred or acquired by a third-party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that any acquirer of TechwareGuide may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
