As used in this policy, “personal information” means information that would allow a party to identify you such as, for example, your name, address or location, telephone number, or email address.
- Privacy policies and data collection and use policies should be human readable, comprehensive, and easy to locate;
- Only the minimum amount of information reasonably necessary to provide you with services should be collected and maintained, and only for so long as reasonably needed or required;
- Information you provide through our Services, or that we gather as a result of your use of our Services, should not be used for marketing or advertising purposes, nor should it be provided voluntarily (without your permission) to anyone else unless required; and
- If QuarkCards is required to provide a third party with your personal information (whether by subpoena or otherwise), then provided we have collected and retained an email address for you, QuarkCards will use reasonable means to notify you promptly of that event, unless prohibited by law or QuarkCards is otherwise advised not to notify you on the advice of legal counsel.
Disclosures of Personal Information
In general, it is not QuarkCards’ practice to disclose personal information to third parties. Other than providing you with attribution using your QuarkCards username in connection with your published data, we may share your personal information in two instances:
First, QuarkCards may share personal information with our contractors and service providers in order to maintain, enhance, or add to the functionality of the Services, or to organize and run an event you signed up to attend.
If QuarkCards is required to provide a third party with your personal information (whether by subpoena or otherwise), then provided we have collected and retained an email address for you, QuarkCards will use reasonable means to notify you promptly of that event, unless prohibited by law or QuarkCards is otherwise advised not to notify you on the advice of legal counsel.
Security of Personal Information Collected via the Services
QuarkCards has implemented reasonable measures to protect against unauthorized access to and unlawful interception or processing of personal information that QuarkCards stores and controls. However, no website can fully eliminate security risks. Third parties may circumvent our security measures to unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. We will post a reasonably prominent notice to the Websites if any such security breach occurs.
Data Usage Policy: Non Personal Browsing and Site Usage Information
Our Data Usage Policy covers how we maintain and use information about you that is collected by our Services, including when you log into the website.
Non Personal Browsing Information We Collect
When you use the Services, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) may collect information indirectly and automatically (through, for example, the use of your “IP address”) about your activities while visiting the Website and information about the browser you are using.
No Selling or Sharing
If QuarkCards is required to provide a third party with your non personal browsing information, then QuarkCards will use reasonable means to notify you promptly of that event, unless QuarkCards is prohibited by law from doing so or is otherwise advised not to notify you on the advice of legal counsel.
