Your privacy is very important to us. At Digital 121 we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
- 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 our site.
Like most website operators, Digital 121 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.
Digital 121’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Digital 121’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Digital 121 may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Digital 121 also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Digital 121 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 Information
Certain visitors to Digital 121’s websites choose to interact with Digital 121 in ways that require Digital 121 to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Digital 121 gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive Digital 121 updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Digital 121 collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Digital 121. Digital 121 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.
Digital 121 may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its website. Digital 121 may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Digital 121 does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Digital 121 discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Digital 121’s behalf or to provide services available at Digital 121, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using Digital 121’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Digital 121 will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, Digital 121 discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Digital 121 believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Digital 121, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the Digital 121 website and have supplied your email address, Digital 121 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 Digital 121 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. Digital 121 takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Digital 121, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Digital 121 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 Digital 121 may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
