Sandland Group operates several websites around the web. It is Sandland Group’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Sandland Group 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. Sandland Group’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Sandland Group’s visitors use its website.
From time to time, Sandland Group may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Sandland Group also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Sandland Group 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 Sandland Group’s websites choose to interact with Sandland Group in ways that require Sandland Group to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Sandland Group gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for projects at Sandlandgroup.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Sandland Group – by purchasing access to the Sandland Group service, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions.
In each case, Sandland Group collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Sandland Group. Sandland Group 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.
Sandland Group may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Sandland Group may monitor the most popular projects on the Sandlandgroup.com site. Sandland Group may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Sandland Group does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Sandland Group 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 Sandland Group’s behalf or to provide services available at Sandland Group’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 Sandland Group’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
Sandland Group 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, Sandland Group discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Sandland Group believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Sandland Group, third parties or the public at large.
If you are a registered user of a Sandland Group website and have supplied your email address, Sandland Group 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 Sandland Group 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. Sandland Group takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
