Privacy Policy

 

Your privacy is critically important to us. At PNGSME Web Services, we have a few fundamental principles:

  • 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 personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  • In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact us.

PNGSME Web Services operates several websites including pngsmews.net, pngsme.com, pngemarket.com and pngedu.com, among others. It is PNGSME Web Services’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

 

Website Visitors

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

PNGSME Web Services also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. PNGSME Web Services 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 and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

 

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to PNGSME Web Services’ websites choose to interact with PNGSME Web Services in ways that require PNGSME Web Services to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that PNGSME Web Services gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a website at pngsme.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with PNGSME Web Services – by registering domains and hosting accounts, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, PNGSME Web Services collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with PNGSME Web Services. PNGSME Web Services 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

PNGSME Web Services may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, PNGSME Web Services may monitor the most popular websites on the pngsme.com site or screen their methodologies and products/services etc. PNGSME Web Services may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, PNGSME Web Services does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

 

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

PNGSME Web Services 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 PNGSME Web Services’ behalf or to provide services available at PNGSME Web Services’ 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 PNGSME Web Services’ websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. PNGSME.COM 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, PNGSME Web Services discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when PNGSME Web Services believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of PNGSME Web Services, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an PNGSME Web Services website and have supplied your email address, PNGSME Web Services 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 PNGSME Web Services 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. PNGSME Web Services takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
