Welcome and thank you for visiting this site, which is operated as Porta-Bote International Inc. (collectively, “Portabote“, “Us” “our” or “We“). These Terms and Conditions (these “Terms“) are provided by Portabote and are applicable to all Portabote’s digital operations at or through our websites, our mobile/tablet sites, and our social media presence. Visitors to this website are sometimes referred to in these Terms as “you” or “your” and you and we together are sometimes referred to as the “parties”.
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS WEBSITE. YOUR ACCESS AND/OR USE OF THE WEBSITE CONFIRMS YOUR UNCONDITIONAL ACCEPTANCE OF THE FOLLOWING TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT FULLY ACCEPT THESE TERMS, DO NOT USE OR ACCESS THE WEBSITE.
Like most website operators, Porta-Bote 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. Porta-Bote’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Porta-Bote’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Porta-Bote may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Porta-Bote also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Porta-Bote 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 Porta-Bote choose to interact with this website in ways that require Porta-Bote to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Porta-Bote gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors to login to our website by providing a username and email address.
In each case, Porta-Bote collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Porta-Bote. Porta-Bote 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.
All of the information that is collected on Porta-Bote will be handled in accordance with GDPR legislation.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Porta-Bote discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of project administrators, employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Porta-Bote’s behalf or to provide services available through this 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 Porta-Bote, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
Porta-Bote will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to project administrators, employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, Porta-Bote 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 Porta-Bote believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Porta-Bote, third parties, or the public at large.
