Privacy Policy



Your privacy is very important to us. At Securing the Universe, we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

  • 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 our site.

Securing the Universe operates It is Securing the Universe’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

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

Securing the Universe also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Securing the Universe 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 are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Securing The Universe’s website choose to interact with Securing the Universe in ways that require Securing the Universe to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Securing the Universe gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. For those who wish to receive Securing The Universe updates via email, we collect their emails to accomplish this. In each case, Securing the Universe collects such information only as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Securing The Universe. Securing the Universe 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

Securing the Universe may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, Securing the Universe may monitor the most popular pages on the site or use spam screened by the anti-spam service to help identify spam. Securing the Universe may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Securing the Universe does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Securing the Universe 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 Securing The Universe’s behalf or to provide services available at Securing The Universes website, 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 Securing The Universe’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Securing the Universe 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, Securing the Universe discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental requests, or when Securing the Universe believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Securing The Universe, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of  Securing the Universe’s website and have supplied your email address, Securing the Universe 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 Securing the Universe and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs 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. Securing the Universe takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
