Eclectic Electric, Inc. (“Eclectic”) operates several websites including eclecticelectric.com and wpinthecloud.com. It is Eclectic’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Eclectic 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. Eclectic’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Eclectic’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Eclectic may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Eclectic also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on one of our blogs. Eclectic 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 and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Eclectic’s websites choose to interact with Eclectic in ways that require Eclectic to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Eclectic gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, Eclectic collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Eclectic. Eclectic 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.
If you buy something from us such as a subscription to our WP in the Cloud website management service you will provide additional personal and payment information that is required to process the transaction and your payment, such as your name, credit card information, and contact information.
Eclectic may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Eclectic may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Eclectic does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Eclectic 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 Eclectic’s behalf or to provide services available at Eclectic’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 Eclectic’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Eclectic 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, Eclectic discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Eclectic believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Eclectic, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Eclectic website and have supplied your email address, Eclectic 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 Eclectic 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. Eclectic takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Eclectic, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Eclectic 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 Eclectic may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
