Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Deer Creek we have a few fundamental principles:

  1. We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  2. We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  3. We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our products or services.
  4. We don't store, view, or have any direct contact with your credit card information. All financial transactions are processed by PayPal using some of the strongest encryption and identity authentication standards available.

 

Deer Creek Marketing, LLC (“Deer Creek”) operates several websites including graphearth.com, and gisdatashop.com. It is Deer Creek’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

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

Deer Creek also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our forum. Deer Creek 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 forum commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to company officers and the administrators of the forum where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Deer Creek’s websites choose to interact with Deer Creek in ways that require Deer Creek to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Deer Creek gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who create an account to provide a username and email address. Deer Creek collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Deer Creek. Deer Creek 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

Deer Creek may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Deer Creek may monitor comments on the GraphEarth.com support forum. Deer Creek may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Deer Creek does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

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

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Deer Creek uses cookies to help Deer Creek identify and track visitors, their usage of Deer Creek website, and their website access preferences. Deer Creek visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Deer Creek’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Deer Creek's websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Deer Creek, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Deer Creek 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 acquiror of Deer Creek may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Deer Creek and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Deer Creek may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Deer Creek’s sole discretion. Deer Creek encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
