It is 4WDCustoms’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, 4WDCustoms 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. 4WDCustoms’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how 4WDCustoms’s visitors use its website. From time to time, 4WDCustoms may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
4WDCustoms also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. 4WDCustoms 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 reviewer IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information:
Certain visitors to 4WDCustoms’s websites choose to interact with 4WDCustoms in ways that require 4WDCustoms to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that 4WDCustoms gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with 4WDCustoms are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, 4WDCustoms collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with 4WDCustoms. 4WDCustoms 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.
4WDCustoms may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, 4WDCustoms may monitor the most popular blogs on the WordPress.com site or use spam screeners to help identify spam. 4WDCustoms may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, 4WDCustoms does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information:
4WDCustoms 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 4WDCustoms’s behalf or to provide services available at 4WDCustoms’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 4WDCustoms’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. 4WDCustoms 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, 4WDCustoms discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when 4WDCustoms believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of 4WDCustoms, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an 4WDCustoms website and have supplied your email address, 4WDCustoms 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 4WDCustoms 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. 4WDCustoms takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If 4WDCustoms, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that 4WDCustoms 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 4WDCustoms may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
