Like most website operators, Flame UK 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. Flame UKs purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use its website.
Flame UK also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Flame UK does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Flame UK choose to interact in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our forums to provide a username and email address. In each case, Flame UK collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction. Flame UK 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.
Flame UK may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, we may reveal how many downloads a particular article got. However, Flame UK does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Flame UK discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Flame Uks behalf or to provide services available, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using Flame UK, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Flame UK will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organisations, as described above, Flame UK discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when we believe, in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights ofFlame UK, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the Flame UK website and have supplied your email address, Flame UK 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 Flame Uk and its services. 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. Flame UK takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally- identifying information.
