Seek DIY ("Seek DIY") operates seekdiy.com and may operate other websites. It is Seek DIY's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Seek DIY 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. Seek DIY's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Seek DIY's visitors use its website. From time to time, Seek DIY may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Seek DIY also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on seekdiy.com blogs/sites. Seek DIY 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 Seek DIY's websites choose to interact with Seek DIY in ways that require Seek DIY to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Seek DIY gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at seekdiy.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Seek DIY are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Seek DIY collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Seek DIY. Seek DIY 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.
Seek DIY may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Seek DIY may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Seek DIY does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Seek DIY 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 Seek DIY's behalf or to provide services available at Seek DIY'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 Seek DIY's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Seek DIY 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, Seek DIY discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Seek DIY believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Seek DIY, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Seek DIY website and have supplied your email address, Seek DIY 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 Seek DIY 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. Seek DIY takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Seek DIY, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Seek DIY goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Seek DIY may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
