Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

Like most website operators, hereafter collectively referred to as Finnegan, 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. Finnegan's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Finnegan's visitors use its website. From time to time, Finnegan may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Finnegan also collects potentially personally-identifying information (PII) like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Finnegan does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Finnegan's websites choose to interact with Finnegan in ways that require Finnegan to gather personally-identifying information (PII). The amount and type of information that Finnegan gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our forums to provide a username and email address. In each case, Finnegan collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Finnegan. Finnegan does not disclose PII other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply PII, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Finnegan may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. However, Finnegan does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Some of those employees, may be located outside of your home country; by using Finnegan's websites, including, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Finnegan will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and PII to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, Finnegan discloses potentially personally-identifying and PII only when required to do so by law, or when Finnegan believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Finnegan, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Finnegan website and have supplied your email address, Finnegan may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new updates, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Finnegan and our services. We primarily use our blog 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. Finnegan takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information (PII).
