Privacy Policy

It is GASR’s mission to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.  This policy applies to https://gasrforum.net (hereinafter, "us", "we", or "GASR").  We are committed to protecting personally identifiable information you may provide us through our website.  This policy exists to explain what information may be collected on GASR, how we use this information, and under what circumstances we may disclose the information to third parties.  This policy applies only to information we collect through the website and does not apply to our collection of information from other sources.

 

The Privacy Policy, together with the Registration Terms of Service and Community Guidelines on our website, set forth the general rules and policies governing your use of GASR.  Depending on your activities when visiting our website, you may be required to agree to additional terms and conditions, such as those set forth by third parties performing services.

 

Website Visitors

Like most websites, GASR collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, device type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.  GASR’s purpose in collecting non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how GASR’s visitors use its website.  From time to time, GASR may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

 

GASR also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://gasrforum.net via forum posts, status updates, personal messages, instant messages, comments where they are allowed, and reviews.  GASR only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

 

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to GASR’s websites choose to interact with GASR in ways that require GASR to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that GASR gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.  For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at https://gasrforum.net to provide a username and email address.  


Security

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure.  While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.  We will always notify our users of a potential security risk unless we believe, in good faith, the risk will not cause harm.

 

Links To External Sites

Our platform may contain links to external sites that are not operated by us.  If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party's site.  We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy and terms and conditions of every site you visit as they may vary from us.  Furthermore, you agree not to act as an illegal agent on other websites where you attempt to represent or speak on behalf of GASR without being an employee, contractor, moderator, or affiliated organization with explicit consent from an administrator. 

 

We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites, products, or services.

 

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

GASR discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, moderators, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on GASR’s behalf or to provide services available at GASR’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.  Some of those employees, contractors, moderators, and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using GASR’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.  GASR will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone, including advertisers. 

 

Other than to its employees, contractors, moderators, and affiliated organizations, as described above, GASR discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request, or when GASR believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of GASR, third parties, or the public at large.

 

If you are a registered user of GASR and have supplied your email address, GASR 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 GASR and our products.  We primarily use our website's Announcements and News section 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 ticket, 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.  GASR takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

 

Self-Protection of Certain Sensitive and Personally-Identifying Information

Under no circumstances should a user ever provide their password or access to their account to another user.  GASR will never ask a user for their log in information, and anyone found asking for sensitive information should be reported immediately.  

 

If you choose to provide personally-identifying information, such as your email addresses, full name, physical address, telephone number, IP address, etc., either in public or private, we assume no responsibility for the consequences that result from those actions.
 

GASR Store

Those who engage in transactions with GASR – by purchasing GASR's services or products, are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions.  In each case, GASR collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with GASRGASR does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described above.  Users can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

 

Aggregated Statistics

GASR may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website.  GASR may display this information publicly or provide it to others.  However, GASR does not disclose your personally-identifying information.

 

Affiliate Disclosure

GASR may use or offer affiliate links and does earn a commission from certain links.  This does not affect your purchases or the price you may pay.

COPPA (Children's Online Privacy Protection Act )
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) is a law created to protect the privacy of children under 13. 

 

This Act specifies:

  • That sites must require parental consent for the collection or use of any personal information of young website users.
  • What must be included in a privacy policy, including the requirement that the policy itself be posted anywhere data is collected.
  • When and how to seek verifiable consent from a parent or guardian.
  • What responsibilities the operator of a Web site legally holds with regards to children's privacy and safety online, including restrictions on the types and methods of marketing targeting those under 13.


We do not allow or attract users under the age of 13 to use our website, therefore data collection exceptions for these users are not active.  If you choose to register under falsified information, you forfeit any protections listed under this law
