The sources of personal information that is collected by Black Hat comes from web server logs, snail mail, on-line registrations, and email we receive. The web logs collect all the usual information. Below is what we do with this information.
This policy might change periodically to reflect new services we offer or changes in the law.
What we do:
- Store the log files electronically until we delete them to make room on the server.
- Analyze the logs with web tools looking at usage patterns and trends to better the site layout.
- Store the email we receive and delete the unnecessary ones.
- Store snail mail for a few months, then shred or destroy it when no longer necessary for accounting purposes.
- We may use the information to solicit our customers regarding new products or services offered by us.
What we don't do:
- Sell the web log files or e-mail addresses to third parties except that we may sell the web log files, e-mail addresses and other customer information in connection with any actual sale, merger, transfer or exchange of our business.
- Turn over web logs, content of e-mail, or other correspondence to anyone other than as required by law or order of the courts.
