Like most website operators, Catalynk 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. Catalynk’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Catalynk’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Catalynk may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Catalynk also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. Catalynk only discloses logged in visitor and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Catalynk’s websites choose to interact with Catalynk in ways that require Catalynk to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Catalynk gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we collect email addresses of those visitors who wish to receive updates via email. In each case, Catalynk collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Catalynk. Catalynk does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors may choose not to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that this choice may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Catalynk may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Catalynk may monitor the most popular pages or use a spam screening service to help identify spam. Catalynk may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Catalynk does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Catalynk discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Catalynk’s behalf or to provide services available at Catalynk’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Catalynk’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Catalynk will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Catalynk discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Catalynk believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Catalynk, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Catalynk website and have supplied your email address, Catalynk will only 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 Catalynk and our products with your express permission. We primarily use our product blogs to communicate this type of information, and will keep this type of email to a minimum. You may at any time unsubscribe to this information by Contact us.
If you send us a request for assistance (for example via an email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to retain it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Catalynk takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
Where we utilize third parties for the processing of any personally-identifying information, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that information for Catalynk-specified purposes. We have selected third-party vendors that do not store personally-identifying information in locations outside the direct control of Catalynk (for instance, on servers or databases co-located with hosting providers). Your personally-identifying information is stored by a single Catalynk-specified service provider that is compliant with GDPR.
In accordance with the French Data Protection Laws and the European General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR) you have a right of access, correction and removal of your personal data which you may exercise by sending us a support request at email@example.com. Your requests will be processed within 30 days. We may require that your request be accompanied by a photocopy of proof of identity or authority.
Catalynk will report certain types of data breaches to relevant authorities within 72 hours, unless the breach is considered harmless and poses no risk to individual data. However if a breach is high-risk, then Catalynk will inform you of any possible impacts right away.
If Catalynk, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Catalynk ceases or sells the business, 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 Catalynk will inform you of the change and offer the option to continue use of and protection of your personally-identifying information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to any 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.
