Privacy Policy

Who We Are

This website belongs to Spike Santee Dot Com, LLC and this privacy policy refers to websites, spikesantee.com, campus.spikesantee.com and other related domains and subdomains thereof. This privacy policy describes how SpikeSantee.com uses and protects any information that you give us. We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. If you provide us with personal information through SpikeSantee.com, you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to SpikeSantee.com choose to interact with SpikeSantee.com in ways that require SpikeSantee.com to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that SpikeSantee.com gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our forums to provide a username and email address.

In each case, SpikeSantee.com collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with SpikeSantee.com. SpikeSantee.com 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 SpikeSantee.com will be handled in accordance with GDPR legislation.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

SpikeSantee.com 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 SpikeSantee.com’s behalf or to provide services available through SpikeSantee.com, 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 SpikeSantee.com, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

SpikeSantee.com 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, SpikeSantee.com 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 SpikeSantee.com believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SpikeSantee.com, third parties, or the public at large.

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

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

How Long We Retain Your Data
