Like most website operators, Fractal 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. Fractal's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Fractal's visitors use its website. From time to time, Fractal may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Fractal also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Fractal does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Fractal's websites choose to interact with Fractal in ways that require Fractal to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Fractal gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, Fractal collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Fractal. Fractal 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.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Fractal discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Fractal's behalf or to provide services available at Fractal's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using Fractal's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Fractal will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, Fractal discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Fractal believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Fractal, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Fractal website and have supplied your email address, Fractal 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 Fractal and our products. We primarily use our company 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. Fractal takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
