Like most website operators, www.archoverflow.com (henceforth and throughout the website called, “Arch Overflow”, “ArchOverFlow”, “Arch OverFlow”) 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. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use our website. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in website usage such as the amount of users.
Arch Overflow also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. However, we do not use such information to identify visitors, and do not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that we use and disclose personally-identifying information, as described below.
We do not sell or rent this information to anyone.
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.
Collection of Personally Identifying Information (PII)
In order to purchase or download products on the website, some users may decide to provide certain personally identifying information including but not limited to: email address, password, company name, and account names on other services.
If users do not want their information tracked in this manner, they can opt to not create an account. However, this means that some features (like commenting), will be unavailable to them.
Use of PII
We may use personally identifying information we have collected about you, including your email address, to provide you with news, notes, and recommendations. You can opt out of receiving such messages at any time by using the “unsubscribe” links or directions at the ends of messages you receive. In addition, we use collected personally identifying information to operate our business and the Arch Overflow website. We do not disclose your personal information to unaffiliated third parties who may want to offer you their own products and services unless you have requested or authorized us to do so.
We may share your personal information with third parties or affiliates where it is necessary for us to complete a transaction or do something you have asked us to do. Likewise, we may share your personal information with third parties or affiliates with whom we have contracted to perform services on our behalf. Companies that act on our behalf are required to keep the personal information we provide to them confidential and to use the personal information we share only to provide the services we ask them to perform.
In addition, we may disclose personal information in the good faith belief that we are lawfully authorized to do so, or that doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process or authorities, respond to any claims, or to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Arch Overflow, our users, our employees, or the public. In addition, information about our users, including personal information, may be disclosed or transferred as part of, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, or acquisition.
Links to Other Websites
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, customer service or compliance) are granted access to personally identifiable information.
Use by Minors
The Arch Overflow website is not intended for use by minor children (under the age of 18). Parents or guardians should monitor the use of Arch Overflow by minor children. Children under age 13 should not use Arch Overflow at all. If a child under age 13 submits personal information through any part of the service, and we become aware that the person submitting the information is under age 13, we will attempt to delete the information as soon as reasonably possible.
If you have any questions or concerns about how we track user information, or how that information is used, please contact us through our Contact page.
