Gathering of Personally Identifiable Information
Certain visitors to Headquarters101’s website choose to interact with Headquarters101 in ways that require Headquarters101 to gather personally identifiable information. The only situation in which we ask for personally identifiable information (full name, email address) is when you comment on our website or send us a message. However, if you are not comfortable sharing personal information, you are not obligated to use your real name and/or email address. You can also use an alias.
If, at any time, you want us to remove all of your comments are personally identifiable information, send us a request at firstname.lastname@example.org. In no more than 30 days, we will delete all personally identifiable information (full name, email address).
Headquarters101 does not disclose personally identifiable information with third parties. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally identifiable information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Gathering of Non-personally Identifiable Information
Like most websites, Headquarters101 also collects non-personally identifiable 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.
Headquarters101’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifiable information is to better understand how Headquarters101’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Headquarters101 may release non-personally identifiable information in the aggregate, e.g. by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Headquarters101 also collects Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Headquarters101 does not use such information to identify its visitors, and does not disclose such information. This type of information is used to improve the user’s experience on this website. We use the information in accordance with the most recent laws and regulations, and we respect our users’ legal rights.
Headquarters101 may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors on its website. For instance, Headquarters101 may monitor the most popular collections on Headquarters101. Headquarters101 may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Headquarters101 does not disclose personally identifiable information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally Identifiable Information
Headquarters101 discloses potentially personally identifiable and personally identifiable information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Headquarters101’s behalf or to provide services available on the Headquarters101 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 Headquarters101’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
In addition, in some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if Headquarters101 or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Headquarters101 goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Headquarters101 may continue to use your personal and non-personal information only as set forth in this policy. Otherwise, Headquarters101 will not rent or sell potentially personally identifiable and personally identifiable information to anyone.
Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, Headquarters101 discloses potentially personally identifiable and personally identifiable information only when required to do so by law, or when Headquarters101 believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Headquarters101, third parties, or the public at large.
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. Headquarters101 takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally identifiable and personally identifiable information.
You should also be aware that if you submit information to “chat rooms,” “forums” or “message boards”or any other section of Headquarters101 with the same function such information becomes public information, meaning that you lose any privacy rights you might have with regards to that information. Such disclosures may also increase your chances of receiving unwanted communications.

It is the sole responsibility of such third parties to adhere to any applicable restrictions on the disclosure of your personally identifiable information, and Headquarters101 and its affiliates shall not be liable for wrongful use or disclosure of your personally identifiable information by any third party.
All non-personally-identifying information, potentially personally-identifying, and personally-identifying information described above is stored on restricted database servers.
