Like most website operators, Qgard 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. Qgard’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Qgard’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Qgard may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Qgard also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Qgard blogs or websites. Qgard 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 and the website where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Qgard’s websites choose to interact with Qgard in ways that require Qgard to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Qgard gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at Qgard.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Qgard are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Qgard collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Qgard. Qgard 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.
Qgard may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Qgard may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Qgard does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Qgard 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 Qgard’s behalf or to provide services available at Qgard’s website, 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 Qgard’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Qgard 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, Qgard discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order, or another governmental request, or when Qgard believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Qgard, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Qgard website and have supplied your email address, Qgard 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 Qgard 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. Qgard takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If WP Buffs, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Qgard 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 Qgard may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
