Your privacy is very important to us. At Hurst Studios we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
- 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 ongoing operation of our site.
- Hurst Studios (“Hurst Studios”) operates a couple of websites including alexisjaworski.com, hurststudios.co.uk. It is Hurst Studios’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Hurst 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. Hurst Studios’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Hurst Studios’ visitors use its website. From time to time, Hurst Studios may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Hurst Studios also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Hurst 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 blog commenter 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 Hurst Studios’ websites choose to interact with Hurst Studios in ways that require Hurst Studios to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Hurst Studios gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive Hurst Studios updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Hurst Studios collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Hurst Studios. Hurst 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.
Hurst Studios may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Hurst Studios may monitor the most popular pages on the hurststudios.co.uk site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Hurst Studios may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Hurst Studios does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Hurst 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 Hurst Studios’ behalf or to provide services available at Hurst 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 Hurst Studios’ websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Hurst 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, Hurst Studios discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Hurst Studios believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Hurst Studios, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Hurst Studios website and have supplied your email address, Hurst 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 Hurst Studios 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. Hurst Studios takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Hurst Studios, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Hurst Studios 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 Hurst Studios may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
