x21 ("x21") operates x21.org and may operate other websites. It is x21's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, x21 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. x21's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how x21's visitors use its website. From time to time, x21 may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
x21 also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on x21.org blogs/sites. x21 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 commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to x21's websites choose to interact with x21 in ways that require x21 to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that x21 gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at x21.org to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with x21 are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, x21 collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with x21. x21 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.
x21 may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. x21 may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, x21 does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
x21 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 x21's behalf or to provide services available at x21'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 x21's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. x21 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, x21 discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when x21 believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of x21, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an x21 website and have supplied your email address, x21 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 x21 and our products. If you send us a request (for example via 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. x21 takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If x21, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that x21 goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of x21 may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
