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