Privacy Policy:

Wacker Drive ("Wacker Drive") operates wackerdrive.org and may operate other websites. It is Wacker Drive's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Wacker Drive 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. Wacker Drive's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Wacker Drive's visitors use its website. From time to time, Wacker Drive may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Wacker Drive also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on wackerdrive.org blogs/sites. Wacker Drive only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Wacker Drive's websites choose to interact with Wacker Drive in ways that require Wacker Drive to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Wacker Drive gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at wackerdrive.org to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Wacker Drive are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Wacker Drive collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Wacker Drive. Wacker Drive 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.

Aggregated Statistics

Wacker Drive may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Wacker Drive may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Wacker Drive does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Wacker Drive 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 Wacker Drive's behalf or to provide services available at Wacker Drive'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 Wacker Drive's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Wacker Drive 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, Wacker Drive discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Wacker Drive believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Wacker Drive, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Wacker Drive website and have supplied your email address, Wacker Drive 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 Wacker Drive and our products. If you send us a request (for example via 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. Wacker Drive takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
