Like most website operators, Cypherpath 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. Cypherpath’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Cypherpath’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Cypherpath may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Cypherpath also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Cypherpath blogs or forums. Cypherpath 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 or forum commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog or forum where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Cypherpath’s websites choose to interact with Cypherpath in ways that require Cypherpath to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Cypherpath gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account on cypherpath.com to provide their name and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Cypherpath – by purchasing Cypherpath Resiliency Platform™, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal information required to process those transactions. In each case, Cypherpath collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Cypherpath. Cypherpath 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.
Cypherpath may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Cypherpath may monitor the most popular forums on the cypherpath.com site. Cypherpath may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Cypherpath does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Cypherpath 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 Cypherpath’s behalf or to provide services available at Cypherpath’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 Cypherpath’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Cypherpath 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, Cypherpath discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Cypherpath believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Cypherpath, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of Cypherpath and have supplied your email address, Cypherpath 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 Cypherpath. If you send us a request (for example via email), 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. Cypherpath takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of personally-identifying information.
