Your privacy is critically important to us. At Sakeriver 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.
Like most website operators, Sakeriver 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. Sakeriver’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Sakeriver’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Sakeriver may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Sakeriver also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Sakeriver 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 Sakeriver’s websites choose to interact with Sakeriver in ways that require Sakeriver to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Sakeriver gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who register for an account in our web forum to provide a username and email address. In each case, Sakeriver collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Sakeriver. Sakeriver 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.
Sakeriver may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Sakeriver may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Sakeriver does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Sakeriver 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 Sakeriver’s behalf or to provide services available at Sakeriver’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 Sakeriver’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Sakeriver 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, Sakeriver discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or with the permission of the affected individual, or when Sakeriver believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Sakeriver, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Sakeriver website and have supplied your email address, Sakeriver 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 Sakeriver 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. Sakeriver takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
