Your privacy is very important to us. At Archtoolbox.com, we have a few fundamental principles:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
The following policy is an attempt to provide you with a clear understanding of what information we collect. We have kept the principles above in mind while creating this document.
Like most website operators, Archtoolbox.com 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. The purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how archtoolbox.com visitors use the website. From time to time, archtoolbox.com may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Google Analytics is a web analytics tool Archtoolbox.com uses to help understand how visitors engage with this website. It reports website trends using cookies and web beacons without identifying individual visitors. You can read more at the Google Analytics Data Privacy and Security.
Archtoolbox.com also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users sending messages with archtoolbox.com's various contact forms. We only disclose logged in user and form-submitter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that logged in user and form-submitter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of archtoolbox.com.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Archtoolbox.com websites choose to interact with Archtoolbox.com in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that is gathered depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, information is collected when purchases are made at store.archtoolbox.com. Those who engage in transactions with Archtoolbox.com – by purchasing products or business listings, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Archtoolbox.com collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Archtoolbox.com. Archtoolbox.com 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.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Archtoolbox.com’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Archtoolbox.com 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, Archtoolbox.com discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Archtoolbox.com believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Archtoolbox.com, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Archtoolbox.com website and/or have supplied your email address, Archtoolbox.com 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 our websites 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.
