GENERAL INFORMATION

IP Addresses and Cookies

Generally speaking, you may visit the Site while remaining anonymous and not revealing any personal information.

THE PIXEL FARM uses your IP address to help diagnose problems with the Site servers, to administer the Site, to monitor Site usage, and to gather broad demographic information. Your IP address is used to help identify you and to aid in your navigation through the Site as determined by your customization options, if any. THE PIXEL FARM also may aggregate the IP address with other information to create anonymous Site statistics. THE PIXEL FARM does not, however, use your IP address to collect personal information about you.

This Site also uses “cookies” to provide customization options at login, or to keep track of where you are in the Site in order to provide the correct customization options when you use the Site. THE PIXEL FARM also uses cookies to allow you to use features or services that you decide to select, or to keep track of usage services or links provided on the Site. THE PIXEL FARM does not, however, use cookies to collect personally identifiable information about you.

Submission of Personal Information

Certain portions of the Site may require that you submit some personal information, such as your name and email address, before using those portions of the Site. At minimum, you are typically required to register with the Site and provide your name or email address before using any of the member’s only areas of the Site. For some services, such as accessing any support or download sections, registering for events, or requesting a demo CD, you may have to create an account, and submit additional personal information such as your mailing address. You may also be required to submit information such as your name and email address before you will be authorized to post information on the Site.

You may set your browser to decline cookies. Although in most cases you may refuse cookies and still fully navigate our Site, access or use of certain parts of the Site may not be possible without the use of cookies.

Use of Personal Information

THE PIXEL FARM may use personal information you submit to the Site to provide the services and information you select, to better understand its customers, to provide better products and services, and to assist THE PIXEL FARM with the Site administration, such as with troubleshooting any problems, detecting fraud, resolving disputes, and for any purposes deemed necessary or required by THE PIXEL FARM to enforce the Terms of Use and other terms or conditions applicable to any portion of the Site.

THE PIXEL FARM also uses this information to send you information about THE PIXEL FARM, its affiliated companies, or other topics THE PIXEL FARM thinks may be of interest to you, such as product information or updates. As part of its business, THE PIXEL FARM works with its affiliated companies as well as other authorized partners, such as authorized resellers, to provide you with the services and information described above. As part of those activities, THE PIXEL FARM may share your information with those authorized entities so that they can directly provide the information or services to you.

Third Parties

THE PIXEL FARM does not sell to third parties information you have submitted to this Site that identifies you personally.

On occasion, THE PIXEL FARM may offer in conjunction with third parties certain services that may require you (or THE PIXEL FARM) to share your personal information with that third party as a condition for providing that service. While THE PIXEL FARM will treat any information it receives in accordance with this Privacy Policy, THE PIXEL FARM will not be responsible for the information submitted by you to that third party, and THE PIXEL FARM reminds you to review the applicable rules and any third party’s applicable privacy policies separately before participating in such service.

Declining Information

You can always change your mind; see the Accept/Decline section below. Please note that it may take us a reasonable amount of time to implement your request, but once we do, we will no longer use and/or process your personal information. THE PIXEL FARM reserves the right to keep a blocked copy of your personal information for the maximum term permitted under applicable law.

Even if you decline to receive information or cancel any account or profile, THE PIXEL FARM reserves the right to maintain and, where necessary, use the personal information you previously provided to contact you about legal or regulatory administrative matters relating to your use of any portion of the Site, your account, or about any issues relating to the Terms of Use, this Privacy Policy, or any other policy then in-effect (for example, the Copyright Complaint Policy), but only to the extent that such use is necessary for the resolution of any open issues that may exist after you have declined to receive information or cancelled your account or profile.

Law Enforcement and Posted Information Exceptions

One exception to this Privacy Policy is that THE PIXEL FARM may provide information you submit to this Site to law enforcement authorities. As noted in the Terms of Use THE PIXEL FARM intends to cooperate with any order or request from law enforcement officials or a court of competent jurisdiction for information as to the identity of individuals submitting or posting information to THE PIXEL FARM or on this Site. Such orders or requests supercede the terms of this Privacy Policy. Another exception applies to any information you decide to post in one of the Site’s public forums. See Public Forums. Finally, notifications of claimed copyright infringement, counter notifications or other information submitted to and necessary to process a notification under our Copyright Complaint Policy are also exempt from this Privacy Policy.

Aggregation and Use of Anonymous Data

THE PIXEL FARM does aggregate all information provided by you to create anonymous statistical and demographic data. This anonymous data helps THE PIXEL FARM to understand and know its customer base better. That anonymous data may be provided to third parties but never in such a fashion as to identify you personally.

Public Forums for Posted Information

Certain portions of the Site are designed to offer you the opportunity to post information on the Site, including but not limited to information about yourself (“Posted Information”; see Terms of Use). For example, you may be permitted to post your resume information on the Site, or post messages in any chat rooms, message boards, mailing lists, and/or news groups this Site makes available to its users.

Please remember that any Posted Information becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information. If you decide to post any information, that Posted Information is exempt from this Privacy Policy.

THE PIXEL FARM may use personal information that is contained in Posted Information to contact you in the event that an issue or dispute arises about any posted information.

Please see the Terms of Use, including but not limited to Section 2: Posted Information, for additional terms applicable to Posted Information.

Links to Other Sites and Advertising

This Site contains links to other sites not operated by THE PIXEL FARM. THE PIXEL FARM is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of those web sites, nor is THE PIXEL FARM responsible for the separate web sites of its parent company, subsidiaries, divisions, affiliates or authorised partners. Please be sure to review the privacy policies of those sites.

This Site may display advertisements and/or links to third parties. These advertisements or links may contain cookies placed by those third parties. THE PIXEL FARM is not responsible for those advertisements, the web sites to which they are linked, or how any other linked sites may use their own cookies or information. For example, cookies received with banner ads may be collected by the company posting the ad on our Site. Again, please refer to that company’s privacy policy for further information.

Surveys and Contests/Sweepstakes

From time to time THE PIXEL FARM may make online surveys available to users of the Site. Participation in those surveys is voluntary. Some online surveys may ask participants for personal information, such as an email address, in addition to requesting answers to survey questions. THE PIXEL FARM may use that personal information to contact the participant if necessary, or as otherwise described above. THE PIXEL FARM may make the results of any survey publicly available, although THE PIXEL FARM will not attribute any particular response to you without your permission.

On occasion THE PIXEL FARM may make available to users of the Site contests, sweepstakes, or similar events in which they may qualify for participation. Participation is always voluntary and subject to the applicable rules. The rules may ask participants to provide personal information as a condition of participation. THE PIXEL FARM may also make the winner’s names public, as provided in the applicable rules, or as required by applicable law. THE PIXEL FARM may also use that information as described above. In some instances, the applicable rules may contain additional or different uses for the information you provide; please be sure to review those rules carefully before entering.

THE PIXEL FARM may permit a third party to sponsor a survey, contest, sweepstakes, or other similar event (“third party event”) with THE PIXEL FARM, such as through posting it on the Site. Such third party events are governed solely by any applicable rules, and may require you to provide information to that third party as a condition for participation. While THE PIXEL FARM will treat any information it receives in accordance with this Privacy Policy, THE PIXEL FARM is not responsible for the information gathered by that third party, and THE PIXEL FARM reminds you to review the rules and privacy policies separately applicable to those third party events.
