Like most website operators, EQAFE 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. EQAFE’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how EQAFE’s visitors use its website. From time to time, EQAFE may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
EQAFE also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. EQAFE 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 Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to EQAFE’s websites choose to interact with EQAFE in ways that require EQAFE to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that EQAFE gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask the buyers to provide their name, email address, date of birth, billing and other information for the purpose of account creation and ability to make subsequent purchases on this online shop. In each case, EQAFE collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with EQAFE. EQAFE 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.
EQAFE may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, EQAFE may reveal how many downloads a particular file got, or say which lessons are most popular. However, EQAFE does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
EQAFE 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 EQAFE’s behalf or to provide services available at EQAFE’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 EQAFE’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. EQAFE 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, EQAFE discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when EQAFE believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of EQAFE, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a EQAFE website and have supplied your email address, EQAFE 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 EQAFE and our products. 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. EQAFE takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
