Web Services Users and Web Site Visitors

Like most Web services operators, Universe Surf GmbH 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. Universe Surf GmbH's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Universe Surf GmbH's visitors use its website and services. From time to time, Universe Surf GmbH may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website and services. Universe Surf GmbH also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Universe Surf GmbH does not use such information to identify its visitors and does not disclose such information other than under the circumstances described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain users of Universe Surf GmbH's websites and services choose to interact with Universe Surf GmbH in ways that require Universe Surf GmbH to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Universe Surf GmbH gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask users of the Universe Surf GmbH application to provide a username and email address. In each case, Universe Surf GmbH collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Universe Surf GmbH. Universe Surf GmbH 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 activities.

Log Data

Universe Surf GmbH collects, aggregates, and stores log and audit data for its customers. Universe Surf GmbH in turn will not disclose individual log records.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Universe Surf GmbH 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 Universe Surf GmbH's behalf or to provide services available at Universe Surf GmbH's service, 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 Unverse Surf GmbH services, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Unverse Surf GmbH 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, Universe Surf GmbH discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Universe Surf GmbH believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Universe Surf GmbH, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Universe Surf GmbH service and have supplied your email address, Universe Surf GmbH 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 Universe Surf GmbH and our products. 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. Universe Surf GmbH takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
