Here at Engine21, we want you to have confidence in our privacy standards. In a nutshell, we will not share your personally identifiable information with any third party organization without first obtaining your explicit consent, except as required by law. For more details, read on.
Your privacy is critically important to us. At Engine21 we have a few fundamental principles:
Walden Street Web Services ("Walden Street") operates several websites including waldenstreet.com and engine21.com. It is Walden Street’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Walden Street 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. Walden Street’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Walden Street’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Walden Street may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Walden Street also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Walden Street 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.
Certain visitors to Walden Street’s websites choose to interact with Walden Street in ways that require Walden Street to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Walden Street gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for engine21.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Walden Street are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Walden Street collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Walden Street. Walden Street 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.
Walden Street may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Walden Street may monitor the most popular collections on the Engine21.com site. Walden Street may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Walden Street does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Walden Street 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 Walden Street’s behalf or to provide services available at Walden Street’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 Walden Street’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Walden Street 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, Walden Street discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Walden Street believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Walden Street, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Walden Street website and have supplied your email address, Walden Street 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 Walden Street 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. Walden Street takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
