Like most website operators, Car2DB.com 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. Car2DB.com’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Car2DB.com’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Car2DB.com may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Car2DB.com also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Car2DB.com does not use IP addresses to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Car2DB.com choose to interact with Car2DB.com in ways that require Car2DB.com to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Car2DB.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, Car2DB.com collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Car2DB.com. Car2DB.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, like purchasing a WordCamp ticket.
All of the information that is collected on Car2DB.com will be handled in accordance with GDPR legislation.
Use of personal information
We will not use the information you provide when you register for an account, attend our events, receive newsletters, use certain other services, or participate in the Car2DB open source project in any other way.
We will not sell or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.

You have a right at any time to stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If you no longer wish to be contacted for marketing purposes, please click on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email.
