Your privacy is critically important to us. At PTK we have a few fundamental principles:
- We donít ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
- We donít share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We donít store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
- In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control whatís visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.
It is PTKís policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, PTK 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. PTKís purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how PTKís visitors use its website. From time to time, PTK may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
PTK also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. PTK does not use such information 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 PTKís websites choose to interact with PTK in ways that require PTK to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that PTK gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. PTK 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.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
PTK 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 PTKís behalf or to provide services available at PTKís 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 PTKís websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. PTK 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, PTK discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when PTK believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of PTK, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an PTK website and have supplied your email address, PTK may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with whatís going on with PTK 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. PTK takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
Comments and other content submitted to our site become the property of PTK and will be used as deemed necessary for the overall improvement of the site.
