Updato (“Updato”) operates and may operate other websites. It is Updato’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.


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

Updato also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blogs/sites. Updato 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 Updato’s websites choose to interact with Updato in ways that require Updato to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Updato gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Updato are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Updato collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Updato. Updato does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply or revoke personally-identifying information by emailing, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.


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


Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

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

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. Updato takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
