ByteJam, Inc. (“ByteJam”) is firmly committed to protecting your privacy. This policy describes our information gathering, use and dissemination practices for our web site. This policy does not apply to any web site to which our web site is linked, and you are encouraged to review the privacy policies for such web site before using or disclosing any information on the web site.
We do not collect any personally identifiable information from individuals who wish to browse our site. We also collect personally identifiable information in other areas of our site in which users voluntarily provide content submissions or suggestions or otherwise participate in interactive online activities. In addition, personally identifiable information may be collected as it is needed to process your requests for information. We may also collect and store statistics and other information about the online activities of our users on an individual basis or an aggregate basis.
Use of Information Gathered
As a general rule, ByteJam will not disclose, sell or otherwise transfer your personally identifiable information to unaffiliated companies, except when we have your permission, as part of a possible sale of the company, or as otherwise provided below.
ByteJam may use personal information to provide you with a customized experience on our site. This may include personalization services, interactive communications, online ordering and many other types of services. We may also use such information to fulfill licenses, to track compliance with our Access Terms of Service, to provide editorial feedback, for research purposes or for our own marketing and promotional purposes, and such information may be shared with our advertisers, business partners or other affiliates, as described more fully below.
Promotions that run on our site may be sponsored by companies other than ByteJam, or may be co-sponsored by ByteJam and another company. Some or all of your personal information that is collected during a promotion may be shared with the sponsor. If you do not want your information to be shared, you must not participate in the promotion. Many promotions also offer opportunities to request additional information from sponsors. By requesting additional information, you give ByteJam permission to transfer your personal information to the sponsor so they can fulfill your request.
ByteJam may collect information on our users’ demographics, interests and behavior in order to better understand and serve our users. This information is compiled and analyzed on an individual basis (personally identifiable format) and in an aggregated format that does not contain any personally identifiable information, and such information may be shared with our business partners or other affiliates in both such formats.
ByteJam may also disclose information about you in special cases when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who is violating our Access Terms of Service or our Tools License Agreement, who is infringing or misappropriating our legal rights, is injuring or interfering with the property of ByteJam or third parties, where there is a risk of injury to you, ByteJam, or third parties, or when required by law.
In addition to any newsletters you receive by e-mail, we may occasionally send you e-mail communications to provide information that we think you will find useful. You can choose not to receive future e-mails from ByteJam at any time, by contacting ByteJam at (804) 321-6333 or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. However, to the extent that corrected or deleted information is also stored in other databases, we cannot always ensure that such corrections or deletions will immediately reach the other databases. Please note that we may occasionally contact you for administrative purposes even if you unsubscribe from our distribution lists.
