Like most website operators, Upeval.org collects non-personally identifiable information of the type that browsers and servers generally make available, such as browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Upeval.org's goal in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors to Upeval.org use its website.
Upeval.org also collects potentially personal information, such as IP (Internet Protocol) addresses. However, Upeval.org does not use IP addresses to identify its visitors and does not disclose such information.
Collection of Personally Identifiable Information
Some visitors to Upeval.org choose to interact with Upeval.org in a way that requires Upeval.org to collect personally identifiable information. The amount and type of information Upeval.org collects depends on the nature of that interaction. For example, we ask visitors who wish to make a comment to provide an ID and an e-mail address.
In each case, Upeval.org collects such information only to the extent necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Upeval.org. Upeval.org does not disclose any personally identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to provide personally identifying information, with the caveat that this may prevent them from engaging in certain activities related to the website, such as commenting on an article.
Protection of Personally Identifiable Information
Upeval.org only discloses potentially identifying and personally identifiable information to project managers, employees, subcontractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know this information in order to process it on behalf of Upeval.org or to provide services available on Upeval.org, and (ii) have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of these employees, subcontractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside your country of origin. By using Upeval.org, you consent to the transfer of this information.
Upeval.org will not rent or sell personally identifiable information to anyone. With the exception of project administrators, employees, subcontractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Upeval.org will only disclose personally identifiable information when required by law, if you give permission to share your information, or when Upeval.org believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Upeval.org, third parties or the general public.
If you are a registered user on Upeval.org and have provided your e-mail address, Upeval.org may occasionally send you a message to inform you of new articles or simply to keep you informed of what is happening on Upeval.org.
Upeval.org takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect itself against unauthorized access, use, modification or destruction of potentially personally identifiable information.
