Like most website operators, SentioSearch 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. SentioSearch’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how SentioSearch’s visitors use its website. From time to time, SentioSearch may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
SentioSearch also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. SentioSearch only discloses logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
SentioSearch is a site that is fueled by user generated content of a personal kind. Most activities on SentioSearch require the gathering of personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that SentioSearch gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask registered users to fill out a survey in order to compute a measure called Shared Satisfaction Potential. We use this measure to tailor results for users. We retain this information but will never share it with any third party without the expressed consent of the involved users. We collect information on searches, decision polls, decisions made, decisions avoided, decision categories, decision experience, decision advice and satisfaction outcomes. SentioSearch does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Policy for Children
SentioSearch does not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If parents or guardians learn that their children under 13 have provided SentioSearch with personal information they can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org in order for us to delete the information and disable the account.
SentioSearch may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, SentioSearch may keep track of user session times. SentioSearch may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, SentioSearch does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
SentioSearch 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 SentioSearch’s behalf or to provide services available at SentioSearch.com, 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 SentioSearch’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. SentioSearch 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, SentioSearch discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when SentioSearch believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SentioSearch, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of SentioSearch and have supplied your email address, SentioSearch 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 SentioSearch and our products. We primarily use our various online communication channels to disseminate 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. SentioSearch takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
Users have control over who can view the satisfaction content they produce. This includes the SentioSearch polls they generate, the decisions they choose, and the satisfaction ratings they report on the decisions they have chosen. At the strictest level, users can choose to restrict this information from any other user. If SentioSearch chooses to highlight a particular decision poll for illustrative reasons, users can choose to remain anonymous.
If SentioSearch, or the majority of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that SentioSearch 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 SentioSearch may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
