4AI Limited ("4AI") operates Universe3D.com and may operate other websites. It is 4AI's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, 4AI 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. 4AI's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how 4AI's visitors use its website. From time to time, 4AI may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
4AI also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Universe3D.com blogs/sites. 4AI 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 4AI's websites choose to interact with 4AI in ways that require 4AI to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that 4AI gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at Universe3D.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with 4AI are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, 4AI collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with 4AI. 4AI 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.
4AI may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. 4AI may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, 4AI does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
4AI discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on 4AI's behalf or to provide services available at 4AI's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using 4AI's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. 4AI 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, 4AI discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when 4AI believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of 4AI, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an 4AI website and have supplied your email address, 4AI may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with 4AI and our products. If you send us a request (for example via 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. 4AI takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If 4AI, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that 4AI goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of 4AI may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Some of our websites may use analytic tools. Currently we use Slimstat Analytics.
