Pak Quake ("Pak Quake") operates pakquake.com and may operate other websites. It is Pak Quake's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Pak Quake 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. Pak Quake's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Pak Quake's visitors use its website. From time to time, Pak Quake may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Pak Quake also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on pakquake.com blogs/sites. Pak Quake 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 commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Pak Quake's websites choose to interact with Pak Quake in ways that require Pak Quake to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Pak Quake gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at pakquake.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Pak Quake are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Pak Quake collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Pak Quake. Pak Quake 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.
Pak Quake may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Pak Quake may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Pak Quake does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Pak Quake's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Pak Quake 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, Pak Quake discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Pak Quake believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Pak Quake, third parties or the public at large.
