Heavyweight Production House, Inc. (“HVW8”) operates the website HVW8.com. It is HVW8’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, HVW8 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. HVW8’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how HVW8’s visitors use its website. From time to time, HVW8 may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
HVW8 also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on HVW8.com. HVW8 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 HVW8’s websites choose to interact with HVW8 in ways that require HVW8 to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that HVW8 gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for membership at HVW8.com to provide a first name, last name, username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with HVW8 â by purchasing works, for example â may be asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, HVW8 collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitorâs interaction with HVW8. HVW8 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.
HVW8 may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, HVW8 may monitor the most popular posts on the HVW8.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. HVW8 may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, HVW8 does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
HVW8 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 HVW8’s behalf or to provide services available at HVW8’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 HVW8’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. HVW8 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, HVW8 discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when HVW8 believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of HVW8, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a HVW8 website and have supplied your email address, HVW8 may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with whatâs going on with HVW8 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. HVW8 takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If HVW8, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that HVW8 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 HVW8 may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to our 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.
