- We will collect certain non-personally identifying information about you as you use our service. We may use this data to better understand our users. We can also publish this data, but the data will be about a large group of users, never individuals.
- We will also ask you to provide personal information, but only when we really need it. Other than as described in this policy, we will not disclose any of your information to others without your express permission.
Like most websites, Metabahn collects non-personally-identifying information 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. Metabahn’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Metabahn’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Metabahn may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Metabahn also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Metabahn 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 Information
Certain visitors to Metabahn’s websites choose to interact with Metabahn in ways that require Metabahn to gather personally-identifying information. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to:
- Email Address
- First and Last Name
- Phone Number
- Address, City, State, Zip Code
The amount and type of information that Metabahn gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Metabahn collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction. Metabahn does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always decline to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Metabahn may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to the website. For instance, Metabahn may monitor the most popular parts of its website. Metabahn may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Metabahn does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Information
Metabahn 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 Metabahn’s behalf or to provide services available at Metabahn’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 the website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
Metabahn 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, Metabahn discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Metabahn believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Metabahn, third parties or the public at large.
If you are a registered user and have supplied your email address, Metabahn 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 Metabahn and our products. We primarily use our website and blog 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.
Metabahn takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
