Privacy Policy

Website Visitors

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

PGF Studio also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. PGF Studio only discloses logged in user 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 the administrators of the forum where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to PGF Studio’s websites choose to interact with PGF Studio in ways that require PGF Studio to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that PGF Studio gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.

In any case, PGF Studio collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with PGF Studio.

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.
