Effective Date: November, 2013
Partnerwerks will not rent or sell personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. It is Partnerwerks’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
All of the broadcast emails that are sent to you from our sites include an unsubscribe link in them. You can remove yourself at any time from our newsletters or mailing list by clicking on the unsubscribe link that can be found in every communication that we send you.
Like most website operators, Partnerwerks 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. Partnerwerks’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Partnerwerks’ visitors use its website. From time to time, Partnerwerks may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Partnerwerks also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our Sites. Partnerwerks 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 are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Partnerwerks’ websites choose to interact with Partnerwerks in ways that require Partnerwerks to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Partnerwerks gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at our Sites to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Partnerwerks are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Partnerwerks collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Partnerwerks. Partnerwerks 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.
Partnerwerks may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Partnerwerks may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Partnerwerks does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Partnerwerks 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 Partnerwerks’ behalf or to provide services available at Partnerwerks’ 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 Partnerwerks’ websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
Partnerwerks will not rent or sell personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Partnerwerks discloses personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Partnerwerks believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Partnerwerks, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Partnerwerks website and have supplied your email address, Partnerwerks 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 Partnerwerks and our products. 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. Partnerwerks takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily make your personal information available for viewing by third parties online – for example on message boards, web logs, through email, or in chat areas – that information can be seen, collected and used by others besides us. We cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of such information.
If Partnerwerks, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Partnerwerks goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Partnerwerks may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
