What information do we collect?

We collect information from you when you register on the Rosetta Community Site and gather data when you participate in the forum by reading, writing, and evaluating the content shared here.

When registering on the Rosetta Community, you may be asked to enter your name and email address. You may, however, visit the Rosetta Community Site without registering. Your email address will be verified by an email containing a unique link. If that link is visited, we know that you control the email address.

When registered and posting, we record the IP address that the post originated from. We also may retain server logs which include the IP address of every request to our server.

Note that content you share on the discussion forum becomes publicly available information and may therefore appear in public ways, such as through search engines or other publicly available platforms. This information may be “crawled” or searched by third parties. It could also be read, collected or used by other users to send you unsolicited messages. If you do not want to reveal information to the public at large do not post any information to these forums.

What do we use your information for?

Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:

  • To provide the Services.

  • To personalize your experience — your information helps us to better respond to your individual needs.
  • To improve our site — we continually strive to improve our site offerings based on the information and feedback we receive from you.
  • To send periodic emails — The email address you provide may be used to send you information, notifications that you request about changes to topics or in response to your user name, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions.

How do we protect your information?

We maintain, and require our service providers to maintain, appropriate physical, technical and administrative safeguards to protect the security and confidentiality of the personal information you entrust to us.

However, we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse, unauthorized acquisition, or alteration of your data will not occur. Please recognize that you play a vital role in protecting your own personal information. When registering with our Services, it is important to choose a password of sufficient length and complexity, to not reveal this password to any third-parties, and to immediately notify us if you become aware of any unauthorized access to or use of your account.

What is your data retention policy?

We limit our retention of your personal information to the only as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collected it, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal obligations or to resolve disputes. Information about our typical retention periods for different aspects of your personal information are described below:

  • Server logs containing the IP address of all requests to this server are retained for no more than 90 days.
  • IP addresses associated with registered users and their posts are retained no more than 5 years.
  • Email address for marketing purposes is retained on an ongoing basis until you un-subscribe. Thereafter we will add your details to our suppression list indefinitely.
  • Content that you post on the discussion board may be kept indefinitely after you close your account.

We use cookies to understand and save your preferences for future visits and compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our Rosetta Community Site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.

You can use the browser with which you are viewing this website to enable, disable or delete cookies.

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our site, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety.

Third party links

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on the Rosetta Community Site. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies.
