Like most website operators, Elekta Direct 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. Elekta Direct’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying
information is to better understand how Elekta Direct’s visitors use its website. From time to time,
Elekta Direct may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a
report on trends in the usage of its website.
Elekta Direct also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP)
addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com and Discus powered blogs.
Elekta Direct 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 and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Elekta Direct’s websites choose to interact with Elekta Direct in ways that require
Elekta Direct to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Elekta
Direct gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at
WordPress.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Elekta Direct –
by purchasing access to the Akismet comment spam prevention service, for example – are asked to provide
additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process
those transactions. In each case, Elekta Direct collects such information only insofar as is necessary or
appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Elekta Direct. Elekta Direct 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.
Elekta Direct may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance,
Elekta Direct may monitor the most popular blogs on the WordPress.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet
service to help identify spam. Elekta Direct may display this information publicly or provide it to others.
However, Elekta Direct does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Elekta Direct 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 Elekta Direct’s behalf or to provide services available at Elekta Direct’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 Elekta Direct’s websites, you consent
to the transfer of such information to them. Elekta Direct 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, Elekta Direct discloses potentially
personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena,
court order or other governmental request, or when Elekta Direct believes in good faith that disclosure is
reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Elekta Direct, third parties or the public at large.
If you are a registered user of an Elekta Direct website and have supplied your email address,
Elekta Direct 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 Elekta Direct and our products. 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 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. Elekta Direct takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against
the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and
