Your privacy is very important to us.
At SendLayer we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
- 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 unencrypted personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site or service.
SendLayer LLC (“SendLayer”) operates several websites and services including SendLayer.com. It is SendLayer’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, SendLayer 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. SendLayer’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how SendLayer’s visitors use its website. From time to time, SendLayer may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
SendLayer also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. SendLayer only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to SendLayer’s websites choose to interact with SendLayer in ways that require SendLayer to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that SendLayer gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive SendLayer updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, SendLayer collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with SendLayer. SendLayer 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.
SendLayer may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites or those that use its service. For instance, SendLayer may monitor the most popular pages on the SendLayer.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. SendLayer may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, SendLayer does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
SendLayer 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 SendLayer’s behalf or to provide services available at SendLayer’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 SendLayer’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. SendLayer 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, SendLayer discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when SendLayer believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SendLayer, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an SendLayer website and have supplied your email address, SendLayer 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 SendLayer 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. SendLayer takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
We work hard to protect our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of information we hold, in particular:
- We encrypt many of our services using SSL.
- We review our information collection, storage, and processing procedures, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems.
- We restrict access to personal information to SendLayer employees, contractors, and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for us, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.
SendLayer collects certain information required to provide services.
When you sign up for the Services, we ask for information such as:
- Contact Information, such as email address, first name, last name and phone number;
- Billing Information, such as credit card number and billing address;
- Unique Identifiers, such as username and/or account password;
- IP Address
If you do not provide this information, we are unable to provide Services to you.
We may retain your data for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services, comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements. In certain circumstances we may be required by law to retain your personal information, or may need to retain your personal information in order to continue providing a service.
Even if your account is deactivated or deleted, the deletion by our third party providers may not be immediate and that the deleted information may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time.
