Your privacy is essential to us. At Electric Chainsaw World, we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
It is Electric Chainsaw World’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Electric Chainsaw World 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. Electric Chainsaw World’s purpose in collecting non personally identifying information is to understand better how Electric Chainsaw World’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Electric Chainsaw World may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Electric Chainsaw World also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Electric Chainsaw World only discloses you 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

In each case, Electric Chainsaw World collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Electric Chainsaw World.

Electric Chainsaw World 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 to process it on Electric Chainsaw World’s behalf or to provide services available at Electric Chainsaw World’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 Electric Chainsaw World’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
Electric Chainsaw World 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, Electric Chainsaw World discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order, or another governmental request, or when Electric Chainsaw World believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Electric Chainsaw World, third parties or the public at large.

We primarily use our various product blogs 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 one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Electric Chainsaw World takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
