Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Starkatz.com collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that is typically left by readers, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Starkatz.com’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use our website. From time to time, Starkatz.com may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends about usage of our website.

Starkatz.com also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Starkatz.com does not use IP addresses to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Starkatz.com choose to interact with Starkatz.com in ways that require Starkatz.com to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Starkatz.com gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our forums to provide a username and email address.

All of the information that is collected on Starkatz.com will be handled in accordance with GDPR legislation.

Starkatz.com will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to administrate this website, as described above, Starkatz.com discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, if you give permission to have your information shared, or when Starkatz.com believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Starkatz.com, third parties, or the public at large.

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. Starkatz.com takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Use of personal information

We use the information you provide to register for an account, attend our events, receive updated advice on changed information, use certain other services, or participate in the Starkatz.com new projects objectives.

We will not sell or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.

You have a right at any time to stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If you no longer wish to be contacted for marketing purposes, please feel free to click on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any email.

Retention of personal information

Starkatz.com will maintain attendee data for 3 years to better track and foster interested party growth, and then automatically delete non-essential data collected via registration. Attendee names and email addresses will be retained indefinitely, to preserve our ability to respond to code of conduct reports.

When deletion is requested or otherwise required, we will anonymise the data of data subjects and/or remove their information from publicly accessible sites if the deletion of data would break essential systems or damage the logs or records necessary to the operation, development, or archival records of Starkatz.com future projects.

You may have certain rights under data protection law in relation to the personal information we hold about you. In particular, you may have a right to:

  • request a copy of personal information we hold about you;
  • ask that we update any personal information about you, or independently correct such personal information so that you think is incorrect or incomplete;
  • ask that we delete personal information from our website, or restrict the way in which we use such personal information (for information on deletion from archives, see the “Retention of personal information” section);
  • object to our processing of your specific personal information; and/or
  • withdraw consent to our processing of your personal information (to the extent such processing is based on consent and consent is the only permissible basis for processing).
