Your privacy is important to Gentoo Labs.

This Privacy Policy applies to all of the products, services and websites offered by Gentoo Labs, LLC. In addition, where more detailed information is needed to explain our privacy practices, we post separate privacy notices to describe how particular services process personal information. If you have any questions about this Policy, please feel free to contact us through our website or write to us at contact@gentoolabs.com. Information we collect and how we use it: We offer a number of services that do not require you to register for an account or provide any personal information to us. In order to provide our full range of services, we may collect the following types of information:

  • Information you provide When you sign up for an Gentoo Labs account or other Gentoo Labs service or promotion that requires registration, we ask you for personal information (such as your name, email address and an account password). For certain services we also request credit card or other payment account information which we process in encrypted form on secure servers. We may combine the information you submit under your account with information from other Gentoo Labs services or third parties in order to provide you with a better experience and to improve the quality of our services.
  • Cookies When you visit Gentoo Labs, we may send one or more cookies - a small file containing a string of characters - to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. We use cookies to improve the quality of our service by storing user preferences and tracking user trends, such as how people search. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some Gentoo Labs features and services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled.
  • Log information When you use Gentoo Labs services, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.
  • User communications When you send email or other communication to Gentoo Labs, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our services.
    • Affiliated sites We offer some of our services in connection with other web sites. Personal information that you provide to those sites may be sent to Gentoo Labs in order to deliver the service. We process such information in accordance with this Policy. The affiliated sites may have different privacy practices and we encourage you to read their privacy policies.
    • Links Gentoo Labs may present links in a format that enables us to keep track of whether these links have been followed. We use this information to improve the quality of our technology, content and services.
    • Other sites This Privacy Policy applies only to web sites and services that are owned and operated by Gentoo Labs.

Gentoo Labs only processes personal information for the purposes described in the applicable Privacy Policy and/or privacy notice for specific services. In addition to the above, such purposes include:

  • Providing our products and services to users, including the display of customized content and advertising;
  • Auditing, research and analysis in order to maintain, protect and improve our services;

  • You may unsubscribe or opt out from future emails from us by visiting www.gentoolabs.com or emailing to opt-out@gentoolabs.com

Gentoo Labs processes personal information on our servers in the United States of America. We may process personal information on a server outside your own country. We may process personal information to provide our own services. In some cases, we may process personal information on behalf of and according to the instructions of a third party, such as our business partners.

Choices for personal information When you sign up for a particular service that requires registration, we ask you to provide personal information. If we use this information in a manner different than the purpose for which it was collected, then we will ask for your consent prior to such use. If we propose to use personal information for any purposes other than those described in this Policy and/or in the specific service notices, we will offer you an effective way to opt out of the use of personal information for those other purposes. You can decline to submit personal information to any of our services, in which case Gentoo Labs may not be able to provide those services to you.

Information sharing Gentoo Labs does not sell, trade, or rent personal information to other companies. Gentoo Labs only shares personal information with other companies or individuals outside of Gentoo Labs in the following limited circumstances: We provide such information to our subsidiaries, affiliated companies or other trusted businesses or persons for the purpose of processing personal information on our behalf. We require that these parties agree to process such information based on our instructions and in compliance with this Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures. We have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request, (b) enforce applicable Terms of service , including investigation of potential violations thereof, (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or (d) protect against imminent harm to the rights, property or safety of Gentoo Labs, its users or the public as required or permitted by law. If Gentoo Labs becomes involved in a merger, acquisition, or any form of sale of some or all of its assets, we will provide notice before personal information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy. We may share with third parties certain pieces of aggregated, non-personal information, such as the number of users who searched for a particular term, for example, or how many users viewed particular content. Such information does not identify you individually.

Information security We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data. When you make a credit card purchase using Gentoo Labs Payment Service we follow industry standards to keep your financial information private and safe. All credit transactions occur in a secure area of the site to prevent loss, misuse, or alteration of the information collected. When you begin the purchase process, the page address (URL) will change from http to https, indicating that you are in a secure area where you will remain for the entire financial transaction. Gentoo Labs uses technology such as Secure Socket Layers (SSL) to encrypt and immediately transmit information to the appropriate credit card company during order processing. Following completion of the transaction, no record of your credit card number will be stored on Gentoo Labs servers. We restrict access to personal information to Gentoo Labs employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.

Data integrity Gentoo Labs processes personal information only for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with this Policy or any applicable service-specific privacy notice. We review our data collection, storage and processing practices to ensure that we only collect, store and process the personal information needed to provide or improve our services. We take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we process is accurate, complete, and current, but we depend on our users to update or correct their personal information whenever necessary.

Accessing and updating personal information When you use Gentoo Labs services, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal information and either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes. We ask individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes), or for which access is not otherwise required. In any case where we provide information access and correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort. Some of our services have different procedures to access, correct or delete users personal information.

Enforcement Gentoo Labs regularly reviews its compliance with this Policy. Please feel free to direct any questions or concerns regarding this Policy or Gentoo Labs treatment of personal information by contacting us through this web site, by writing to us at contact@gentoolabs.com. When we receive formal written complaints at this address, it is Gentoo Labs policy to contact the complaining user regarding his or her concerns. We will cooperate with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal data that cannot be resolved between Gentoo Labs and an individual.
