Oleg Podsechin operates starthq.com
. It is Oleg’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information he may collect while operating his websites.
Like most website operators, Oleg 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. Oleg’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how his visitors use his website. From time to time, Oleg may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of his website.
Oleg also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Oleg does not use such information to identify his visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that he uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Oleg’s websites choose to interact with Oleg in ways that require Oleg to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Oleg gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, he asks visitors who sign up for an account at starthq.com
to provide a username and email address. In each case, Oleg collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Oleg. Oleg 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.
Oleg may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to his websites. Oleg may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Anton Korenyushkin does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Oleg discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of his employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Oleg’s behalf or to provide services available at Oleg’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 Oleg’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Anton Korenyushkin will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to his employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Oleg discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Oleg believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Anton Korenyushkin, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Oleg website and have supplied your email address, Oleg 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 the site. He primarily uses his blog to communicate this type of information, so he expects to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send a support request via a support email, he reserves the right to publish it in order to help him clarify or respond to your request or to help him support other users. Oleg takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
