Like most website operators, 42Freeway.com 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. 42Freeway.com’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how 42Freeway.com’s visitors use its website. From time to time, 42Freeway.com may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
42Freeway.com also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. 42Freeway.com does not use IP addresses 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 42Freeway.com choose to interact with 42Freeway.com in ways that require 42Freeway.com to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that 42Freeway.com gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our website comment feature to provide a username and email address.
In each case, 42Freeway.com collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with 42Freeway.com. 42Freeway.com 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 such as commenting within the website, or website related merchandise purchases (to be offered in the future).
All of the information that is collected on 42Freeway.com will be handled in accordance with GDPR legislation.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
42Freeway.com discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of project administrators, employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on 42Freeway.com’s behalf or to provide services available through 42Freeway.com, 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 42Freeway.com, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
42Freeway.com will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to project administrators, employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, 42Freeway.com discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, if you give permission to have your information shared, or when 42Freeway.com believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of 42Freeway.com, third parties, or the public at large.
