Like most website operators, OSCAL 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. OSCAL’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use the website. From time to time, OSCAL may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
OSCAL also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on openlabs.cc and it’s subdomains. OSCAL 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 blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Certain visitors to OSCAL’s websites choose to interact with OSCAL in ways that require OSCAL to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that OSCAL gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, OSCAL collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with OSCAL. OSCAL does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
OSCAL may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, OSCAL uses services such as the Akismet service to help identify spam. OSCAL may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, OSCAL does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
OSCAL 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 OSCAL’s behalf or to provide services available at OSCAL’s websites and subdomains, 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 OSCAL’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. OSCAL 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, OSCAL discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when OSCAL believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of OSCAL, third parties or the public at large.
If you are a registered user of OSCAL website, microsite, subdomain or newsletter and have supplied your email address, OSCAL may occasionally send you an email to tell you about news, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with OSCAL and our activities related with the promotion of Free Libre Open Source technologies in Albania. We primarily use our various blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. OSCAL takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
