Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy governs the manner in which TAVIQ, Ltd. (“Taviq”) collects, uses, maintains and discloses information collected from users (each, a “User”) of the website (“Site”). This privacy policy applies to the Site and all products and services offered by TAVIQ, Ltd. unless otherwise written in contracts and terms of those products and services in question.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Taviq 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 User request. Taviq’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Taviq’s Users use its Site. From time to time, Taviq may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its Site.

Taviq also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Taviq does not use such information to identify its Users, 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 Users to Site choose to interact with Taviq in ways that require Taviq to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Taviq gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask Users who use our forums and/or some other services to provide a username and email address. In each case, Taviq collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the User’s interaction with Taviq. Taviq does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And Users can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Site-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Taviq may collect statistics about the behavior of Users to its Site. For instance, Taviq may reveal how many downloads a particular product version or other Taviq provided material got. However, Taviq does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Taviq discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Taviq’s behalf or to provide services available at Taviq’s Site, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Taviq’s Site, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Taviq will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Taviq discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Taviq believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Taviq, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered User of a Taviq Site and/or have otherwise supplied your email address to Taviq, Taviq may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Taviq and our products. We primarily use our blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other Users. Taviq takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a User’s computer, and that the User’s browser provides to the website each time the User returns. Taviq uses cookies to help Taviq identify and track Users, their usage of Taviq’s Site, and their Site’s access preferences. Taviq User who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Taviq’s Site, with the drawback that certain features of Taviq’s Site may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Taviq, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Taviq goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, User information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Taviq may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.


Ads appearing on any of our Site may be delivered to Users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Taviq and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers or other third parties.

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Taviq may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Taviq’s sole discretion. Taviq encourages Users to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy.
