Sycamore Associates LLC. (“Sycamore Associates”) operates the following websites sycamoreassociates.com. It is Sycamore Associates’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
Like most website operators, Sycamore Associates 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. Sycamore Associates’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Sycamore Associates’ visitors use its website. From time to time, Sycamore Associates may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Sycamore Associates also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blog. Sycamore Associates 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 blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Sycamore Associates’ websites choose to interact with Sycamore Associates in ways that require Sycamore Associates to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Sycamore Associates gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog to provide a username and email address. Sycamore Associates collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Sycamore Associates. Sycamore Associates 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.
Sycamore Associates may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Sycamore Associates may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Sycamore Associates does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Sycamore Associates 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 Sycamore Associates’ behalf or to provide services available at Sycamore Associates website, 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 Sycamore Associates websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Sycamore Associates 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, Sycamore Associates discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Sycamore Associates believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Sycamore Associates, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of Sycamore Associates website and have supplied your email address, Sycamore Associates 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 Sycamore Associates. We primarily use our various news and press or newsletter manager to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. 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. Sycamore Associates takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
