Katerra Inc. (“Katerra“) operates Katerra.com and may operate other websites. It is Katerra’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Katerra 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. Katerra’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Katerra’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Katerra may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Katerra also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Katerra.com blogs/sites. Katerra 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 Katerra’s websites choose to interact with Katerra in ways that require Katerra to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Katerra gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at Katerra.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Katerra are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Katerra collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Katerra. Katerra 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.
Katerra may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Katerra may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Katerra does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Katerra 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 Katerra’s behalf or to provide services available at Katerra’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 Katerra’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Katerra 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, Katerra discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Katerra believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Katerra, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Katerra website and have supplied your email address, Katerra may occasionally send you an email to tell you about news, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Katerra and our products. Katerra takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Katerra, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Katerra 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 Katerra may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
