Like most website operators, AdChief 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. AdChief’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how AdChief’s visitors use its website. From time to time, AdChief may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
AdChief also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. AdChief 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 blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so. We may use your personal information to send you promotional information about third parties which we think you may find interesting if you tell us that you wish this to happen.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to AdChief’s websites choose to interact with AdChief in ways that require AdChief to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that AdChief gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive AdChief updates via email, we collect their emails. For example, when you to sign up for an account, we ask for personal information, like your name, email address, telephone number or credit card to store with your account. When visitors comment on our blog, we ask them to provide a username and email address.
In each case, AdChief collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with AdChief. AdChief 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.
AdChief may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, AdChief may monitor the most popular pages on the adchief.io site. AdChief does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Information We Share
AdChief 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 AdChief’s behalf or to provide services available at AdChief’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 AdChief’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
AdChief 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, AdChief discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when AdChief believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of AdChief, third parties or the public at large.
If you are a registered user of an AdChief website and have supplied your email address, AdChief 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 AdChief 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.
AdChief takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information, as discussed below.
We work hard to protect our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of information we hold, in particular:
- We encrypt many of our services using SSL.
- We review our information collection, storage, and processing procedures, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems.
- We restrict access to personal information to AdChief employees, contractors, and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for us, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.
If AdChief, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that AdChief 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 AdChief may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
