Information collected automatically. When you access or use our Site or Services, information about you is automatically collected, such as the type of browser you use, the files you request, the time of your use, your IP address, and the page you visited before reaching us. Some pages on our Site may contain “cookies,” which are data that may be sent to your web browser and stored on your computer. Session cookies exist only during a particular browsing session; persistent cookies stay on your computer until they are deleted. Persistent cookies allow our server to “recognize” you when you visit our website in the future.
Information shared by you through our Site and Services. Some of the Services we offer through our Site, such as our user forum, allow users to share information and Content on our Site. Please be aware that any information or Content that you share through those Services may be viewed or collected by others.
Minors. We do not intend to collect any information from or about any individual under 13 years of age; if you are a parent or guardian and believe that your under-13 child has provided us with information without your consent, please email us at [email protected] so that we may delete that information.
How Information Is Used
Splice Machine will use information voluntarily supplied by you to provide you with the Services you requested, to respond to your inquiries, to provide you with customer support, and to supply you with requested information about us and our Services.
We may also use your personal information to inform you about new features, products or services unless you opt out from our marketing activities (for example, by unsubscribing).
If you do not reside in the United States, you acknowledge that Splice Machine is located in the United States and the applicable laws regarding processing of personal information may be less stringent than the laws in your country; by providing us with information about you, you consent to having it transferred to, and processed or stored in, the United States.

- With our third-party contractors, advisors, and service partners under confidentiality agreements, such as (for example) the companies we use for our email newsletters, for their use on our behalf in the course of providing services for us.
- As part of any merger, acquisition of part or all of our business, financing, or similar corporate transaction.
- If we believe it necessary as required by law or to comply with court order, subpoena, or similar requirements, or to enforce our agreements or policies, or to protect us or third parties against harm or illegal activities.
We may also share aggregated or de-identified information.
Corrections, Updates, or Deletion. You may update or correct your personal information or request deletion of your account information by emailing us at [email protected]; please note that we may be required by law or otherwise to retain your information, or to retain it for a set time before deleting it.
