Like most website operators, 4pt Limited 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. 4pt Limited’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how 4pt Limited’s visitors use its website. From time to time, 4pt Limited may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
4pt Limited also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. 4pt Limited 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 4pt Limited’s websites choose to interact with 4pt Limited in ways that require 4pt Limited to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that 4pt Limited 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 updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, 4pt Limited collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with 4pt Limited. 4pt Limited 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.
4pt Limited may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. For instance, 4pt Limited may monitor the most popular pages on its site. 4pt Limited may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, 4pt Limited does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
4pt Limited 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 4pt Limited’s behalf or to provide services available at 4pt Limited’s websites, 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 4pt Limited’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. 4pt Limited 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, 4pt Limited discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when 4pt Limited believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of 4pt Limited, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an 4pt Limited website and have supplied your email address, 4pt Limited 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 4pt Limited 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. 4pt Limited takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If 4pt Limited, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that 4pt Limited 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 4pt Limited may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to Akismet, Google ReCaptcha or any other anti-spam service in operation on our website are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
