Privacy Statement

VOXFORGE.ORG PRIVACY STATEMENT

VoxForge.org (which includes the sites www.voxforge.org, www.dev.voxforge.org and www.repository.voxforge1.org) is committed to protecting the privacy of users of our site. At VoxForge.org, we intend to give you as much control as possible over your personal information, including the registration data. As part of the normal operation of this site, we collect information from you. This Privacy Statement describes the information we collect about you and what may happen to that information.

INFORMATION GATHERED THROUGH THE www.voxforge.org, www.dev.voxforge.org or www.repository.voxforge1.org WEB SITEs:

VoxForge.org may track the pages which you visit at VoxForge.org and analyze this data for trends and statistics. Subject to the provisions of this Privacy Statement, VoxForge.org may use accumulated data for various purposes, including but not limited to marketing analysis, service evaluation and planning.

User names and email addresses (as well as any additional information that a user may choose to post) are publicly available on the VoxForge.org site. When users voluntarily and publicly disclose personal information that may contain Registration Data, or otherwise post personal information in conjunction with content subject to an Open Source license, such personal information necessarily will be disclosed subject to the terms of the license.  An example of such a disclosure includes, but is not limited to, a user's disclosure of personal information as part of a message posted to a public message forum, or a publicly-released software application.

VoxForge.org may conduct surveys or other studies of its customer base and usage for marketing and planning purposes. With respect to information collected from such surveys or studies, and in the event that responses are to be publicly disclosed, users will be notified at the time they take the survey and VoxForge.org will disclose only aggregate information regarding its users and not personal information identifying any specific individual. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in cases where surveys allow users to submit written comments, and where VoxForge.org advises users of the possibility of such disclosure at the time they take the survey, VoxForge.org reserves the right to disclose text information provided by any user through such a survey, provided that no personal information identifying that user is disclosed. Participation in such surveys is at the user's option; VoxForge.org does not conduct mandatory surveys. Circumstances under which VoxForge.org would publicly disclose such aggregate information include, but are not limited to, sharing survey results with the site population, providing data to potential VoxForge.org advertisers on user preferences and/or demographics, and publicizing overall usage data in press communications.

Cookies: VoxForge.org employs "cookies" to provide a user with tailored information. A "cookie" is an element of data that a Service or site, when visited by a user, sends to that user's browser that, in turn, may store that element on the user's hard drive or memory. VoxForge.org uses cookies to better serve users who use our Services. However, at his or her option, and at his or her sole expense and responsibility, any user may block or delete our cookies from his or her hard drive. By disabling cookies, however, certain site features and functionality may no longer work properly, or at all.

Other Notification: In order to implement or enforce the Terms of VoxForge.org, VoxForge.org may use personal information to contact users on an individual basis.

At no time, unless law requires such disclosure, disclosure is necessary to aid law enforcement, or a user specifically authorizes such disclosure, will VoxForge.org disclose individual user personal information that is not publicly available to unrelated third parties.

LINKS WITH OTHER SITES

VoxForge.org contains links to other websites, whether owned or controlled by VoxForge.org affiliates or unrelated third parties. Please note that the privacy policies of these sites may differ from those of VoxForge.org. VoxForge.org is not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of any linked website.  We encourage you to read the privacy statement of any website you may visit.

CHOICE

Profile Display: In some cases, users' personal information may be publicly available through a user's profile display.

In such cases, users have the option to opt out of publicly displaying their real names. In cases where site profiles allow users to display optional information publicly, such entry and display is at the user's discretion and may be changed at any time by the user.

ACCESS

Users can view their data on their personal profile page. When technically feasible, users are permitted to update their personal information directly through VoxForge.org Service. When such updating service is not technically feasible, VoxForge.org will make reasonable efforts to assist users in updating their personal information.

SECURITY

To secure site integrity, VoxForge.org employs measures including but not limited to reasonable security measures and procedures.

Internal access to users' private and nonpublic personal information is restricted to site administrators and individuals on a need-to-know basis.

ENFORCEMENT

In the event that VoxForge.org becomes aware that site security is compromised or user nonpublic information has been disclosed to unrelated third parties as a result of external activity, including but not limited to external security attacks, VoxForge.org shall take reasonable measures which it deems appropriate, including but not limited to internal investigation and reporting, and notification to and cooperation with law enforcement authorities, notwithstanding other provisions of this Statement.

If VoxForge.org becomes aware that a user's personal information provided to VoxForge.org has been disclosed in a manner not permitted by this Privacy Statement, VoxForge.org shall make reasonable efforts to notify the affected user, as soon as reasonably possible and as permitted by law, of what information has been disclosed, to the extent that VoxForge.org knows this information.

NO GUARANTEES

While this Privacy Statement expresses VoxForge.org's standards for maintenance of private data, VoxForge.org is not in a position to guarantee that the standards will always be met. There may be factors beyond our control that may result in disclosure of data. As a consequence, VoxForge.org disclaims any warranties or representations relating to maintenance or nondisclosure of private information.
