Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. This privacy notice explains the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data in connection with the PHPVibe (Forum) website.

Personal Data We Collect

The personal data the PHPVibe Forum ("we", "us") collects depends on how you interact with us.

Information you provide directly. We collect the personal data you provide to us. For example, if you choose to send us an email inquiry or submit a request via a "Contact Us" form, we will collect contact information, such as your name and email address, as well as the content of your communications.

Information we collect automatically. When you visit the website, we collect some information automatically. For example:

Identifiers and device information. When you visit the website, our web servers automatically log your Internet Protocol (IP) address and information about your device, including device identifiers (such as MAC address); device type; and your device's operating system, browser, and other software including type, version, language, settings, and configuration. As further described in the Cookies and Similar Technologies section below, our website stores and retrieves cookie identifiers and other data.

Geolocation data. Depending on your device settings, we collect geolocation data when you use the website.

Usage data. We automatically log your activity on the website, including the URL of the website from which you came to our site, pages you viewed, how long you spent on a page, access times, and other details about your use of and actions on our website.

When you are asked to provide personal data, you may decline. You may use web browser or operating system controls to prevent certain types of automatic data collection. But if you choose not to provide or allow information that is necessary for certain services, those features may not be available. For example, if you don't provide an email address, we will be unable to respond to any inquiries you may have.

Cookies and similar technologies

We use cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies to operate the website and to help collect data, including usage data, identifiers, and device information.

What are cookies and similar technologies?

Cookies are small text files placed by a website and stored by your browser on your device. A cookie can later be read when your browser connects to a web server in the same domain that placed the cookie. The text in a cookie contains a string of numbers and letters that may uniquely identify your device and can contain other information as well. This allows the web server to recognize your browser over time, each time it connects to that web server.

Web beacons are electronic images (also called single-pixel or clear GIFs) that are contained within a website or email. When your browser opens a webpage or email that contains a web beacon, it automatically connects to the web server that hosts the image (typically operated by a third party). This allows that web server to log information about your device and to set and read its own cookies. In the same way, third-party content on our websites (such as embedded videos, plug-ins, or ads) results in your browser connecting to the third-party web server that hosts that content.

How do we and our partners use cookies and similar technologies?

We, and our analytics partners, use these technologies in our website to collect personal data (such as the pages you visit, the links you click on, and similar usage information, identifiers, and device information) when you use our services. This information is used to analyze how our websites and apps perform, track your interaction with the site or app, and fulfill other legitimate purposes. Please see the Sharing section below for details on the third-party analytics providers we use on the website.

What controls are available?

Browser cookie controls. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can go to your browser settings to learn how to delete or reject cookies. If you choose to delete or reject cookies, this could affect certain features or services of our website. If you choose to delete cookies, settings, and preferences controlled by those cookies, including advertising preferences, may be deleted and may need to be recreated.

Do Not Track. Some browsers have incorporated "Do Not Track" (DNT) features that can send a signal to the websites you visit indicating you do not wish to be tracked. Because there is no common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal, our websites do not currently respond to browser DNT signals. Instead, you can use a range of other tools to control data collection and use, including the cookie controls and advertising controls described above.

Our use of personal data

We use each of the categories or personal data we collect for purposes described in this privacy notice or otherwise disclosed to you. For example, we use personal data for the following purposes:

Service delivery. To provide the website, including troubleshooting, securing, and improving the website.

We share personal data with your consent or as necessary to operate the website or respond to your inquiries. In addition, we share each of the categories of personal data described above, with the types of third parties described below, for the following business purposes:

Service providers. We share personal data with vendors or agents working on our behalf for the purposes described in this notice. For example, companies we've hired to host the website, process incoming email, or assist in protecting and securing the website and our systems may need access to personal data to provide those functions.  We also use website analytics services, as described in the Cookies section of this notice, from New Relic.

Legal and law enforcement. We will access, disclose, and preserve personal data when we believe that doing so is necessary to comply with applicable law or respond to valid legal processes, including from law enforcement or other government agencies.

Security, safety, and protecting rights. We will disclose personal data if we believe it is necessary to: protect our users and others, for example, to prevent spam or attempts to commit fraud, or to help prevent the loss of life or serious injury of anyone;  operate and maintain the security of our services, including preventing or to stop an attack on our computer systems or networks; or protect the rights or property of ourselves or others, including enforcing our agreements, terms, and policies.
