Your privacy is critically important to us. At circuit-tree we have a few fundamental principles:
- 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.
It is circuit-tree policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Circuit-tree 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. Circuit-tree’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Circuit-tree’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Circuit-tree may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Visitors to Circuit-tree’s websites choose to interact with Circuit-tree in ways that require Circuit-tree to gather personally-identifying information. Circuit-tree collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Circuit-tree. Circuit-tree 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.
Circuit-tree may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Circuit-tree may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Circuit-tree does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Circuit-tree 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 Circuit-tree’s behalf or to provide services available at Circuit-tree’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 Circuit-tree’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Circuit-tree 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, Circuit-tree discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Circuit-tree believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Circuit-tree, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Circuit-tree website and have supplied your email address, Circuit-tree 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 Circuit-tree and our products. Circuit-tree takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Circuit-tree, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Circuit-tree 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 Circuit-tree may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
