NetworkAppers avoids collecting potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses except to the extent necessary to provide certain services. For example, our site needs to collect an IP address from you for the sole purpose of constructing a webpage containing that IP address and delivering it back to your computer. In this instance your IP address is only stored on our server in temporary memory (RAM) for only as long as is necessary to construct the webpage and deliver it to your computer. We do not store IP addresses in permanent memory (disk), nor are they viewed by any person at NetworkAppers.
NetworkAppers may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, NetworkAppers may monitor the most popular pages on NetworkAppers.com site. NetworkAppers may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, NetworkAppers does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Google App Engine
Some of NetworkAppers’s services may be provided by Google App Engine, a service operated by Google (a third party service provider). As such, you should assume that any information you provide to NetworkAppers may be available to NetworkAppers and to Google. For details about the specific privacy guarantees made by Google in its capacity as a service provider, please refer to code.google.com/appengine/privacy.html.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
NetworkAppers 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 NetworkAppers’s behalf or to provide services available at NetworkAppers’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 NetworkAppers’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. NetworkAppers 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, NetworkAppers discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when NetworkAppers believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of NetworkAppers, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a NetworkAppers website and have supplied your email address, NetworkAppers 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 NetworkAppers 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. NetworkAppers takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
