Privacy Policy


Your privacy is critically important to us. At Realistic Computer Service 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 blogging 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: (Note, we’ve decided to make this privacy policy available under a Creative Commons Sharealike license, which means you’re more than welcome to steal it and repurpose it for your own use, just make sure to replace references to us with ones to you, and if you want we’d appreciate a link to Realistic Computer Service somewhere on your site. We spent a lot of money and time on the below, and other people shouldn’t need to do the same.)

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.

Realistic Computer Service operates several websites including Realistic Computer Service. It is Realistic Computer Service’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

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

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

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Realistic Computer Service’s websites choose to interact with Realistic Computer Service in ways that require Realistic Computer Service to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Realistic Computer Service gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who contact us to provide a name and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Realistic Computer Service – by purchasing services are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Realistic Computer Service collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Realistic Computer Service. Realistic Computer Service 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

Realistic Computer Service may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Realistic Computer Service may monitor the most popular pages to help identify spam. Realistic Computer Service may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Realistic Computer Service does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Information We Collect from Other Sources

With your authorization, we may also obtain information about you from other sources. For example, if you create or log into your account through a social media service (like Google) or if you connect your website or account to a social media service through our Publicize feature, we will receive information from that service (such as your username, basic profile information, and friends list) via the authorization procedures used by that service. The information we receive depends on which services you authorize and any options that are available.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Realistic Computer Service 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 Realistic Computer Service’s behalf or to provide services available at Realistic Computer Service’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 Realistic Computer Service’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Realistic Computer Service 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, Realistic Computer Service discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Realistic Computer Service believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Realistic Computer Service, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Realistic Computer Service website and have supplied your email address, Realistic Computer Service 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 Realistic Computer Service and our products. We primarily use our various product pages 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. Realistic Computer Service 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.

Realistic Computer Service visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Realistic Computer Service’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Realistic Computer Service’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Realistic Computer Service, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Realistic Computer Service 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 Realistic Computer Service 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 Realistic Computer Service and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Comments

Comments and other content submitted to our contact us page are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
