Website VisitorsLike most website operators, PolyTech Forum 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. PolyTech Forum's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how PolyTech Forum's visitors use its website. From time to time, PolyTech Forum may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
PolyTech Forum also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on PolyTech Forum forums. PolyTech Forum 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 blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying InformationCertain visitors to PolyTech Forum's websites choose to interact with PolyTech Forum in ways that require PolyTech Forum to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that PolyTech Forum gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a forum user account at PolyTech Forum to provide a username and email address. We advise users not to use their real names for the username as this information is shown publicly on pages of this website. Email address is not shown publicly. In each case, PolyTech Forum collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with PolyTech Forum. PolyTech Forum 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.
Aggregated StatisticsPolyTech Forum may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. PolyTech Forum may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, PolyTech Forum does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying InformationPolyTech Forum 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 PolyTech Forum's behalf or to provide services available at PolyTech Forum'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 PolyTech Forum's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. PolyTech Forum 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, PolyTech Forum discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when PolyTech Forum believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of PolyTech Forum, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an PolyTech Forum website and have supplied your email address, PolyTech Forum 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 PolyTech Forum and our products. We expect to keep this type of email communication 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. PolyTech Forum takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
