Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. At LANThrax.com 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.

Website Visitors
Like most website operators, LANThrax.com 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. LANThrax.com's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how LANThrax.com's visitors use its website. From time to time, LANThrax.com may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
LANThrax.com also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our forums. LANThrax.com 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 forum commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the forum where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to LANThrax.com's websites choose to interact with LANThrax.com in ways that require LANThrax.com to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that LANThrax.com gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, when you sign up you provide your email address so that you can receive your initial randomized password. The same email address is used to get notifications when there is internal member mail for you. The sender of the internal member mail does not see your email address. Instead the websites send you the notification about the message that you can view it.  LANThrax.com 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
LANThrax.com may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. For instance, LANThrax.com may monitor the most popular pages on the site. LANThrax.com may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, LANThrax.com does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. LANThrax uses Google Analytics for the purpose of gathering such information. Here is a link to their privacy policy.

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