Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy:

Gertie Pickett ("Gertie") operates dotnetindex.com and may operate other websites. It is Gertie's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Gertie 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. Gertie's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Gertie's visitors use its website. From time to time, Gertie may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Gertie also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on dotnetindex.com blogs/sites. Gertie 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 Gertie's websites choose to interact with Gertie in ways that require Gertie to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Gertie gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at dotnetindex.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Gertie are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Gertie collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Gertie. Gertie 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.

Aggregated Statistics

Gertie may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Gertie may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Gertie does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Gertie 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 Gertie's behalf or to provide services available at Gertie'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 Gertie's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Gertie 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, Gertie discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Gertie believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Gertie, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Gertie website and have supplied your email address, Gertie 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 Gertie 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. Gertie takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Gertie uses cookies to help Gertie identify and track visitors, their usage of Gertie website, and their website access preferences. Gertie visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Gertie's websites, with the drawback that certain features of Gertie's websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Gertie, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Gertie 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 Gertie may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Gertie and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Gertie may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Gertie's sole discretion. Gertie encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a dotnetindex.com account, you might also receive an alert informing you of these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
