Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us and that is why we want to inform you about how we protect the privacy of visitors to our site. Please take a moment to read our policy, which describes our practices for the collection and use of personally identifiable information on this site. Sites that are linked to our site may have different policies, so please review the privacy policy notices on those sites for details. We do not collect personally identifiable information about you on this site without your knowledge or permission, and any such information is collected directly from you with your consent.
At Xycod, we have a few fundamental principles: We do not ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. We do not share your personal information with anyone except to comply with law enforcement; develop our products; or protect our rights. We do not store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
It is Xycod’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect from you while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, and through various standard tracking methods and log files,  Xycod collects non-personally-identifiable information of the type that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as domain names, Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser types, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Xycod’s purpose in collecting non-personally-identifiable information is to track aggregate traffic patterns throughout Xycod’s website and to better understand how our visitors are using the Xycod website. Such information is not correlated with any personally identifiable information and Xycod does not use such information to identify its visitors. Xycod does not disclose such information, other than under the specific circumstances for disclosing personally identifiable information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Xycod’s websites choose to interact with Xycod in ways that require Xycod to gather personally identifiable information. The amount and type of information that Xycod gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up to provide a username and an email address. In each case, Xycod collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Xycod. Xycod does not disclose personally identifiable information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to provide personally identifiable information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from being able to engage in certain website-related activities.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Xycod discloses potentially personally identifiable and personally identifiable information only to those specific employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know such information in order to process it on Xycod’s behalf or to provide services available at Xycod’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 and by using Xycod’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to another country.
Xycod will not rent or sell potentially personally identifiable and personally identifiable information to anyone. Other than to its specific employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Xycod discloses potentially personally identifiable and personally identifiable information only when required to do so by law, or when Xycod believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Xycod, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of Xycod’s website and have supplied your email address, Xycod 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 Xycod products. We primarily use our various product pages to communicate this type of information, and we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request 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. Xycod takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally identifiable and personally identifiable information.

Cookies

Xycod may use cookies from time to time. A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer which the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Xycod may use cookies to personalize web pages during your visit to our web sites, such as your preferred language, and/or to remember you for easy navigation and access during your return visits after registering for our products, services or other offers. For these purposes, some cookies may be tied to your e-mail address. However, this information will only be used for the purpose of analysis and will be limited to the minimum information necessary to perform that analysis. Xycod visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Xycod’s websites, with the caveat that certain features of Xycod’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

It is up to you to make the decision whether or not to proceed with any activity that requests potential personally identifiable information. If you do not wish to provide the requested information, however, you may not be able to complete the transaction or utilize a particular functionality on the site if the information is essential to complete the transaction or functionality.

IP addresses

Xycod collects and retains, for a limited time, internet protocol (IP) address information of its customers, for the following purposes: subscription and registration; to provide technical support; to obtain geographical information; and to secure our networks and systems. IP addresses collected by Xycod are primarily traffic data, as noted above, which is not necessarily personally identifiable information. Xycod does not have the means to reasonably and authoritatively link an IP address to an identifiable individual. Registration of a product does create a unique computer identifier, which is linked to an IP address at the time of registration; however, IP addresses are usually assigned dynamically and therefore are temporary, and may be behind network address translation, and are often capable of falsification (spoofing).

Links to Business Partners

At our Xycod websites, there may be links to companies with whom we have a business relationship. Xycod is not responsible for the privacy practices of our business partners. We encourage you to read their privacy statements, as they may differ from ours. We also encourage you to read the privacy policies on any co-branded site that you may follow a link to for information on the privacy practices of that site.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Xycod may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and at Xycod’s sole discretion. By using our site you consent to our collection and use of your non-personally-identifiable information, potentially personally identifiable information, or personally identifiable information as described in this policy. Xycod encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.

Thank you for visiting our Xycod websites, and for taking the time to read this policy.
