What information is collected on our Site:
When you visit our Site we gather information regarding your use of our site, such as the pages you view and the time you view each page. We also collect information such as your Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type and operating system information. The foregoing information is collectively referred to below as "Your Usage Data."
We store information such as your email address, name, and organization or company ("Personally Identifiable Information") only if you decide to send us such information by submitting a FreeBSD bug or problem report ("PR"), subscribing to one of the FreeBSD mailing lists or posting content to our Site forums. The FreeBSD Project allows unlimited distribution of that content. Information submitted in those reports and lists, including your Personally Identifiable Information, is considered public and will be accessible to anyone on the web. Such information is not only stored on servers belonging to the FreeBSD Foundation, but it is also stored on other servers that mirror the content of our Site. The FreeBSD Foundation has no control over the use of that information, including your Personally Identifiable Information.
How the information collected is used:
The FreeBSD Project takes the privacy of our users and members very seriously. We will never sell, rent, or otherwise provide your personally identifiable information to any third parties except as stated in this document. We will not associate any data gathered from your use of our Site with any personally identifying information.
How your information is protected:
The FreeBSD Project strictly protects the security of the personal information you provide. Personal information we collect is stored in password-controlled servers with limited access, and we carefully protect this information from loss or misuse, and from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
When your information may be disclosed:
The FreeBSD Project may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:
conform to the requirements of the law or comply with legal process served on The FreeBSD Project or the Site;
protect and defend the rights or property of The FreeBSD Project; or
act in urgent circumstances to protect personal safety of users of The FreeBSD Project, its websites, or the public.
Anonymized aggregate traffic data about website visits may be shared for marketing or research purposes.
With the exception of the transmission of Your Usage Data to Google for the sole purpose of using Google Analytics and the public access we permit to the bug reports you submit, the mailing lists you subscribe to, and posting content to our Site forums, the FreeBSD Project does not share un-anonymised data with anyone.
Sale of assets:
In the unlikely event that The FreeBSD Project or substantially all of its assets are acquired, your information may be one of the transferred assets.
