Your privacy is very important to us. At SWET we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
It is SWET’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, SWET 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. SWET’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use this website. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Where visitors to this site choose to interact with SWET in ways that require SWET to gather personally-identifying information, the amount and type of information that SWET gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, visitors are asked to provide their email address when contacting us. Those who wish to receive JSS updates via email, we collect their emails. SWET collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with SWET. SWET 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.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
SWET 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 SWET’s behalf or to provide services available on this website, 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 this website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. SWET 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, SWET discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when SWET believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SWET, third parties or the public at large. If you have had any interaction with this website and have supplied your email address, SWET 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 SWET and our products. 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. SWET takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
