Cookie and Privacy Policy

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Preston PC 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. Preston PC's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Preston PC's visitors use its website. From time to time, Preston PC may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Preston PC also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Preston PC 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.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Preston PC websites choose to interact with Preston PC in ways that require Preston PC to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Preston PC gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our forums to provide a username and email address. In each case, Preston PC collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Preston PC. Preston PC 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.

Aggregated Statistics

Preston PC may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Preston PC may reveal how many downloads a particular version got, or say which plugins are most popular based on checks from Preston PC/api/, a web service used by Preston PC installations to check for new versions of Preston PC and plugins. However, Preston PC does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Preston PC discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Preston PC's behalf or to provide services available at Preston PC's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Preston PC's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Preston PC will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, Preston PC discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Preston PC believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Preston PC, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Preston PC website and have supplied your email address, Preston PC may occasionally 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 Preston PC and our products. We primarily use our forum 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. Preston PC takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
