Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Commodore Online we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • 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.
  • In our products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals. If you have questions about accessing or correcting your personal data please contact us.

It is Commodore Online’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors:

Like most website operators, CommodoreOnline.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. Commodore Online’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Commodore Online’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Commodore Online may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Commodore Online also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blog. Commodore Online 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 are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information:

Certain visitors to Commodore Online’s website choose to interact with Commodore Online in ways that require Commodore Online to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Commodore Online gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a account at CommodoreOnline.com to provide a username and email address. Commodore Online collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Commodore Online. Commodore Online 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.

Aggregated Statistics:

Commodore Online may record anonymous data such as traffic logs, number of visits or clicks on a given page, pages viewed or links to our site. We use IP addresses and cookies for gathering website statistics. We also store IP addresses on our server in the event that our site should become corrupted and it becomes necessary to discover the cause of this corruption.

We aggregate this anonymous data as part of managing, maintaining and reporting on use of our website. We may share this anonymous data with third parties for the limited purpose of reporting on use of our website, or to comply with applicable law. We do not rent, sell or share any anonymous data collected on this website with third parties for marketing purposes.

None of this anonymous data is linked to personally-identifiable information and we make no attempt to link IP addresses to the individuals who visit this site.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information:

Commodore Online 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 Commodore Online’s behalf or to provide services available at Commodore Online’s website, 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 Commodore Online’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Commodore Online 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, Commodore Online discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Commodore Online believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Commodore Online, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Commodore Online website and have supplied your email address, Commodore Online 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 Commodore Online and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support 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. Commodore Online takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
