Samy’s DV & Edit (“Samy’s DV”) operates several websites and mobile services. It is Samy’s DV’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we collect while operating our websites and services.
Like most website operators, Samy’s DV 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. Samy’s DV’s purpose in collecting non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how Samy’s DV’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Samy’s DV may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Samy’s DV also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Samy’s DV 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 users choose to interact with Samy’s DV in ways that require Samy’s DV to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Samy’s DV gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who register with Samy’s DV to provide a username and password. In addition certain Samy’s DV services receive location information about the user, in the form of lat/long coordinates with a date and time. Samy’s DV services may also collect information on advertisements sent to users as well as ad redemption if applicable. In each case, Samy’s DV collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of Samy’s DV’s service. Samy’s DV does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Samy’s DV 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 Samy’s DV’s behalf or to provide services offered by Samy’s DV, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Samy’s DV 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, Samy’s DV discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Samy’s DV believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Samy’s DV, third parties or the public at large. Samy’s DV takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
