Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy:

Thetroll Inc. ("Thetroll") operates Thetroll.net and may operate other websites. It is Thetroll's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

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

Thetroll also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Thetroll.net blogs/sites. Thetroll 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 commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Thetroll's websites choose to interact with Thetroll in ways that require Thetroll to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Thetroll gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at Thetroll.net to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Thetroll are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Thetroll collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Thetroll. Thetroll 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

Thetroll may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Thetroll may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Thetroll does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Thetroll 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 Thetroll's behalf or to provide services available at Thetroll's websites, 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 Thetroll's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Thetroll 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, Thetroll discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Thetroll believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Thetroll, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Thetroll website and have supplied your email address, Thetroll 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 Thetroll 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. Thetroll takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Thetroll uses cookies to help Thetroll identify and track visitors, their usage of Thetroll website, and their website access preferences. Thetroll visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Thetroll's websites, with the drawback that certain features of Thetroll's websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Thetroll, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Thetroll goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Thetroll may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Thetroll and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Thetroll may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Thetroll's sole discretion. Thetroll encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a Thetroll.net account, you might also receive an alert informing you of these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
