Like most online platforms, QuaintScience 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. QuaintScience’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how QuaintScience’s visitors use its website or to render services to its visitors. From time to time, QuaintScience may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
QuaintScience also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. QuaintScience does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Certain visitors to QuaintScience’s websites choose to interact with QuaintScience in ways that require QuaintScience to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that QuaintScience gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, this could be in the form of hosting competitions or participating in competitions, discussions, or blogs belonging to QuaintScience. Those who engage in transactions with QuaintScience are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, QuaintScience collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with QuaintScience. QuaintScience 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. QuaintScience does not keep a copy of any credit card information once a transaction is complete.
QuaintScience may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. QuaintScience may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, QuaintScience does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
QuaintScience discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on QuaintScience’s behalf or to provide services available on the websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using the websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. QuaintScience will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, QuaintScience discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when QuaintScience believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of QuaintScience, third parties or the public at large.
