Your privacy is very important to us. At Maac Lab 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, 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, Maac Lab 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. Maac Lab’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Maac Lab’s visitors use its website.
Maac Lab also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Maac Lab 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 Maac Lab’s websites choose to interact with Maac Lab in ways that require Maac Lab to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Maac Lab 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 Maac Lab updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Maac Lab collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Maac Lab. Maac Lab 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.
Maac Lab may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Maac Lab may monitor the most popular pages on our site to help identify spam. Maac Lab may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Maac Lab does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Maac Lab 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 Maac Lab’s behalf or to provide services available at Maac Lab’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 Maac Lab’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Maac Lab 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, Maac Lab discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Maac Lab believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Maac Lab, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Maac Lab website and have supplied your email address, Maac Lab 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 Maac Lab 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. Maac Lab takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Maac Lab, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Maac Lab 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 Maac Lab may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
