Like most website operators, Auxiom 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. Auxioms purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Auxiom, visitors use its website. From time to time, Auxiom may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Auxiom also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on auxom.comblogs/sites. Auxiom 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 Auxiom websites choose to interact with Auxiom in ways that require Auxiom to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Auxiom gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at auxom.comto provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Auxiom are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Auxiom collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Auxiom. Auxiom 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.
Auxiom may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Auxiom may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Auxiom does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
PROTECTION OF CERTAIN PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Auxiom 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 Auxiom behalf or to provide services available at Auxiom 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 Auxiom websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Auxiom 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, Auxiom discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Auxiom believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Auxiom, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Auxiom website and have supplied your email address, Auxiom 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 Auxiom and our products. If you send us a request (for example via 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.

You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Auxiom may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
