It is the policy of Get Up! And DIY ("GetUpAndDIY" or "gDIY") to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
If you have questions about accessing or correcting your personal data please contact us at support at gdiy dot com.

Website Visitors

gDIY 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. gDIY's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how gDIY's visitors use its website. From time to time, gDIY may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
gDIY also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. gDIY only discloses logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of gDIY.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to gDIY's websites choose to interact with gDIY in ways that require gDIY to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that gDIY gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a membership at our site to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with gDIY are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, gDIY collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with gDIY. gDIY 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.

Aggregated Statistics

gDIY may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, gDIY may monitor the most popular projects on our site. gDIY may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, gDIY does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

gDIY 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 gDIY's behalf or to provide services available at gDIY'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 the gDIY website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. gDIY 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, gDIY discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when gDIY believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of gDIY, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the gDIY website and have supplied your email address, gDIY 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 gDIY and our products. We may also send you email when certain actions take place on our site (for example when another user sends you a private message, when someone leaves a comment for you, or when someone you subscribe to publishes or changes something); you can change or opt out of these emails here. 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. gDIY takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
