At MetalSoftware, we intend to give you as much control as possible over your personal information, including any data submitted to our system. We will let each user know how we will use the personal information derived from each user’s access to and use of MetalSoftware and/or the Services.
MetalSoftware contains links to other websites, whether owned or controlled by MetalSoftware affiliates or unrelated third parties. MetalSoftware is not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of any linked website.
“Opt-in” Emails: Users may “opt-in” to receive site notifications, newsletters or other information via email. Users may remove themselves from such services at their discretion. Any email sent to an “opt-in” list will include directions for how a user may remove him or herself from the list, or a URL where the user may find such directions.
Other Notification: In order to implement or enforce the Terms of Service of the relevant MetalSoftware site, MetalSoftware may use personal information to contact users on an individual basis.
General: In cases where users voluntarily and publicly disclose personal information which may contain Registration Data or otherwise post personal information in conjunction with content subject to an open source license, such personal information necessarily will be disclosed subject to the terms of the applicable license. An example of such a disclosure includes, but is not limited to, a user’s disclosure of personal information as part of a message posted to a public message forum or a publicly-released software application.
At no time, unless such disclosure is required by law or a user specifically authorizes such disclosure, will MetalSoftware disclose individual user personal information that is not publicly available to unrelated third parties.
Surveys and Resulting Information: Subject to the foregoing, MetalSoftware may conduct surveys or other studies of its customer base and usage for marketing and planning purposes. Participation in such surveys is at the user’s option; MetalSoftware does not conduct mandatory surveys.
With respect to information collected from such surveys or studies, and in the event that responses are to be publicly disclosed, users will be notified at the time they take the survey and MetalSoftware will disclose only aggregate information regarding its users and not personal information identifying any specific individual. Circumstances under which MetalSoftware would publicly disclose such aggregate information include, but are not limited to, sharing survey results with the site population, providing data to MetalSoftware advertisers on user preferences and/or demographics, and publicizing overall usage data in press communications.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, in cases where surveys allow users to submit written comments, and where MetalSoftware advises users of the possibility of such disclosure at the time they take the survey, MetalSoftware reserves the right to disclose text information provided by any user through such a survey, provided that no personal information identifying that user is disclosed.
To secure site integrity, MetalSoftware employs measures including but not limited to security audits, use of encryption tools and software, and other reasonable security measures and procedures. Internal access to users’ private and nonpublic personal information is restricted to site administrators and individuals on a need-to-know basis.
In the event that MetalSoftware becomes aware that site security is compromised or user nonpublic information has been disclosed to unrelated third parties as a result of external activity, including but not limited to external security attacks, MetalSoftware shall take reasonable measures which it deems appropriate, including but not limited to internal investigation and reporting, and notification to and cooperation with law enforcement authorities.
