Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. We have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
Auxilus Systems LLC (“Auxilus Systems”) operates several websites including Auxilus.com. It is Auxilus Systems’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Auxilus Systems 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. Auxilus Systems’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Auxilus Systems’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Auxilus Systems may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Auxilus Systems also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Auxilus Systems 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 Auxilus Systems’s websites choose to interact with Auxilus Systems in ways that require Auxilus Systems to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Auxilus Systems gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive Auxilus Systems updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Auxilus Systems collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Auxilus Systems. Auxilus Systems 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.

Aggregated Statistics

Auxilus Systems may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Auxilus Systems may monitor the most popular pages on the Auxilus.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Auxilus Systems may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Auxilus Systems does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Auxilus Systems 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 Auxilus Systems’s behalf or to provide services available at Auxilus Systems’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 Auxilus Systems’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Auxilus Systems 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, Auxilus Systems discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Auxilus Systems believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Auxilus Systems, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Auxilus Systems website and have supplied your email address, Auxilus Systems 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 Auxilus Systems 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. If you send us a request (for example via a support 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. Auxilus Systems takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Auxilus Systems uses cookies to help Auxilus Systems identify and track visitors, their usage of Auxilus Systems website, and their website access preferences. Auxilus Systems visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Auxilus Systems’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Auxilus Systems’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Auxilus Systems, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Auxilus Systems 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 Auxilus Systems may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Auxilus Systems and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Comments

Comments and other content submitted to Disqus 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.

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Auxilus Systems may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Auxilus Systems’s sole discretion. Auxilus Systems encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy.
