This page is intended to outline data collection practices, data-sharing practices, and the practices and policies that govern our protection of data collected during processes including, but not limited to; purchases, account registrations, the sale of products, and viewing of media content on the www.rendernode.com (‘RenderNode’) website, related websites, and services.
Like most website operators, RenderNode 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. RenderNode’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how RenderNode’s visitors use its website. From time to time, RenderNode may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
RenderNode also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on www.RenderNode.com blogs/sites. RenderNode 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 commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left. These practices are in place to prevent website misuse and the presence of unwanted or potentially hazardous content that includes, but is not limited to; spam, annoying links, misleading information, non-valid product offers.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to RenderNode website choose to interact with RenderNode in ways that require RenderNode to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that RenderNode gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at www.RenderNode.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with RenderNode are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, RenderNode collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with RenderNode. RenderNode 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. This is exemplified by the ‘Checkout As Guest’ option.
RenderNode may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. RenderNode may display this information publicly or provide it to others. Examples of such aggregated statistics may include, but are not limited to; monthly website visitors, number of visitors from certain countries, average time spent on the RenderNode.com website (Dwell time), and percentage of traffic shared by specific URL addresses. However, RenderNode does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
RenderNode 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 RenderNode’s behalf or to provide services available at RenderNode’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 RenderNode’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
RenderNode 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, RenderNode discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when RenderNode believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of RenderNode, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a RenderNode website or service and have supplied your email address, RenderNode 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 RenderNode and our products.
If you send us a request (for example via 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. An example of such publication would be the inclusion within our FAQ section, Knowledgebase articles, or support forums. These actions are taken in an effort to help address common problems and issues in a more community-driven manner with the end goal of making support more efficient and timely. RenderNode takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If RenderNode, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that RenderNode goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that are transferred or acquired by a third party as would be with the sale of any other business. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of RenderNode may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
