Except as provided herein, we will not share your Personal Information with third parties without your consent.

Information we collect automatically through our site

Like many site operators, we collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Site (“Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our Site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics.

External Providers & Embedded Content

The Site runs on wordpress.com, which collects most of the information described in this document, including through cookies and tracking code. We leverage WordPress.com logins for users providing content for our blog.

We use Google Analytics to analyze traffic to our Site. Google provides details on how they use information from sites like us linked here.

Pages on this site may include embedded content from other providers (e.g. videos, images, articles, links to share content, etc.). These external web sites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

You may access, modify, or delete the personal information that you have provided to us by emailing us at info@zeek.org with what you would like updated. Please note that we may retain certain information about you as required or permitted by law. For example, if you request that we delete your information but we believe that you have violated our Terms of Use we may retain information about you in order to attempt to resolve the issue before deleting it.

How We Disclose Your Information

We may use your information to (i) contact you with communication pertaining to the Zeek Project; (ii) compile anonymized statistics characterizing the composition of Zeek’s user community; (iii) monitor and analyze usage and activity trends; (iv) improve our site; and (iv) for other research, analytical, and statistical purposes.

In addition, we may use your information to protect the safety, rights, property, or security of the Zeek Project, the Site, any third party, or the general public; to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues; to prevent or stop activity that we, in our sole discretion, may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, an illegal, unethical, or legally actionable activity; to use as evidence in litigation; and to enforce this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use.

We may also use your information to comply with applicable legal or regulatory obligations, including as part of a judicial proceeding; to respond to a subpoena, warrant, court order, or other legal process; or as part of an investigation or request, whether formal or informal, from law enforcement or a governmental authority.

Cookies/Do Not Track Notice

Cookies are files with small amounts of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer’s hard drive.

Like many sites, we use “cookies” to improve the user experience and collect some of the information discussed. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Site.

We do not track site users over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore do not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals.

Security

The security of your information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. For security, we may run collected data through 3rd-party services for detecting malicious activity and content spam.

Our Site may contain links to third-party websites and applications. Any access to and use of such linked websites and applications is not governed by this Privacy Policy but instead is governed by the privacy policies of those third parties. We are not responsible for the information practices of such third-party websites or applications.

You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your device and account by, among other things, choosing a robust password that nobody else knows or can easily guess and keeping your log-in information private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.

Changes To This Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy is effective as of March 1st, 2020, and will remain in effect except with respect to any changes in its provisions in the future, which will be in effect immediately after being posted on this page.

We reserve the right to update or change our Privacy Policy at any time and you should check this Privacy Policy periodically. Your continued use of the Service after we post any modifications to the Privacy Policy on this page will constitute your acknowledgment of the modifications and your consent to abide and be bound by the modified Privacy Policy.
