SMP Studios ("SMP Studios") operates smpstudios.com and may operate other websites. It is SMP Studios' policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, SMP Studios 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. SMP Studios' purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how SMP Studios' visitors use its website. From time to time, SMP Studios may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
SMP Studios also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on smpstudios.com blogs/sites. SMP Studios 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.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to SMP Studios' websites choose to interact with SMP Studios in ways that require SMP Studios to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that SMP Studios gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at smpstudios.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with SMP Studios are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, SMP Studios collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with SMP Studios. SMP Studios 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.
SMP Studios may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. SMP Studios may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, SMP Studios does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
SMP Studios 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 SMP Studios' behalf or to provide services available at SMP Studios' 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 SMP Studios' websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. SMP Studios 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, SMP Studios discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when SMP Studios believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SMP Studios, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an SMP Studios website and have supplied your email address, SMP Studios 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 SMP Studios 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. SMP Studios takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If SMP Studios, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that SMP Studios 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 SMP Studios may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
