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