Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to TechFurs.net’s websites choose to interact with TechFurs.net in ways that require TechFurs.net to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that TechFurs.net gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with TechFurs.net – by purchasing access to the Akismet comment spam prevention service, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, TechFurs.net collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with TechFurs.net. TechFurs.net 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.

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. TechFurs.net takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If TechFurs.net, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that TechFurs.net 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 TechFurs.net may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to our Akismet 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.
