Your privacy is very important to us. At Metahawk we have a few fundamental principles:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
Metahawk Technologies Inc. (Metahawk) operates Metahawk.com. It is Metahawk's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Metahawk 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. Metahawk’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Metahawk’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Metahawk may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Metahawk also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Metahawk does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Metahawk’s websites choose to interact with Metahawk in ways that require Metahawk to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Metahawk gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up account at Metahawk.com to provide a username and email address. Metahawk collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitors interaction with Metahawk. Metahawk 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.
Metahawk may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Metahawk may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Metahawk does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Metahawk 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 Metahawk’s behalf or to provide services available at Metahawk’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 Metahawk’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Metahawk 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, Metahawk discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Metahawk believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Metahawk, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Metahawk website and have supplied your email address, Metahawk 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 Metahawk and our products and services. We primarily use our blog 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. Metahawk takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of our Site, or your dealings with our Site, please feel free to contact us.
