When you submit a Contact Form or send an email to email@example.com, the Linux Foundation is collecting information from you. This information is necessary in order to tailor our subsequent communications to you, fulfill your requests regarding information and projects, and to contact you about developments relating to the PCP. Personal information provided with Contact Forms or contained in emails is not shared outside of the Linux Foundation and is used internally only to respond to specific comments or requests for information.Links
The PCP website contains links to other websites, including the Linux Foundation's main website at www.linux-foundation.org. The Linux Foundation is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave the PCP website and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by the Linux Foundation on the PCP website.Log Files
Like many websites, the Linux Foundation may use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the PCP site, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.Information Sharing
Generally, the Linux Foundation will not sell, rent, or share your personally identifiable information with others, unless we have your permission or are required by law. We may share aggregate data with our sponsors, members or other parties, but if we do so we will not include any personally identifiable information. We may also share personal information with our contractors and service providers in order to maintain or improve the website.Cookies
A cookie is a small data file that certain websites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the site uses to track the pages you've visited, but the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can't read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites.
The Linux Foundation may amend this policy occasionally. If we do, we will post those changes here so users are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any time the Linux Foundation decides to use personally identifiable information collected through the PCP website in a manner that is different from what we have stated at the time we collected it, we will request permission from the affected individuals.Feedback
