Who we are
Because we gather certain types of information about our members, we feel you should fully understand our policy and the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.
INFORMATION Qrnetwork’s GATHERS AND TRACKS
Qrnetwork’s gathers two types of information about users: * Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to receive our electronic newsletters, to participate in our message boards or forums, to email a friend, and from participation in polls and surveys or to order any service:
* Information Qrnetwork’s gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. Under no circumstances does Qrnetwork’s divulge any information about an individual user to a third party except to its sister companies Maximumsetting’s / Canaca (High Speed Internet Provider & Web Hosting).
Qrnetwork’s Gathers User Information In The Following Processes: Optional Voluntary Information: We offer the services, which require some type of voluntary submission of personal information by users:
1. Electronic newsletters policy (Dispatches)
We will offer a free electronic newsletter to users. Qrnetwork’s gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe to our service.
2. Message boards/forums policy
Users of the site’s Message Boards and Forums must register separately for these services (both are free of charge) in order to post messages, although they needn’t register to visit the site. During registration the user is required to supply a username, password, and email address.
3. “E-mail this to a friend” policy
Our site users can choose to electronically forward a link, page, or documents to someone else by clicking “e-mail this to a friend”. The user must provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient. This information is used only in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent the email. The information is not used for any other purpose.
Privacy CONDITIONS for the free VPN SERVICE (Herein referred to as “VPN Service”)
No activity logs. Qrnetworks Inc. does not see or record which websites you visit. We never log the destination or contents of your traffic, and we run our own private, zero-knowledge DNS on every VPN server for added privacy and anonymity.
We may offer interactive polls to users so they can easily share their opinions with other users and see what our audience thinks about important issues. Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable to any particular user. Qrnetwork’s may use a system to “tag” users after they have voted, so they can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is not correlated with information about individual users.
Qrnetwork’s may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our services to our audience. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with Canaca-com Inc. and Maximumsetting’s our sister companies. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any other third party.
Qrnetwork’s tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. Qrnetwork’s does break down overall usage statistics according to a user’s domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user’s browser).
Qrnetwork’s sometimes tracks and catalogs the search terms that users enter in our Search function, but this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
How the information you gather is used if relevant.
USE OF INFORMATION
Qrnetwork’s uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience with our service, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the sites or to better prepare future services.
As stated above, we use information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out electronic newsletters and to enable users to participate in polls, surveys, message boards, and forums. We send out newsletters to subscribers on a regular schedule (depending on the newsletter), and occasionally send out special editions when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing. Qrnetwork’s never shares newsletter mailing lists with any third parties, including advertisers, sponsors or partners except with Canaca-com Inc. & Maximumsetting’s
When we use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like, and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you. We track search terms entered in Search function as one of many measures of what interests our users. But we don’t track which terms a particular user enters.
Qrnetwork’s operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our customers.
