Cookies, Web Server Logs and Other Technologies
Certain information is collected by most browsers, such as your Media Access Control (MAC) address, computer type (Windows or Macintosh), screen resolution, operating system name and version, language, and browser type and version. We use this information to ensure that the Site functions properly.
Your IP address is automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider. An IP address may be identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever a user accesses the Site, along with the time of the visit and the page(s) that were visited. Collecting IP addresses is standard practice and is done automatically by many websites, applications and other services. We use IP addresses for purposes such as calculating usage levels, diagnosing server problems and administering the Services. We may also derive your approximate location from your IP address.
To simply browse our Site, you are not required to provide any Personal Information. However, we may gather information from cookies and similar technologies, as described directly above, for the purposes of monitoring and improving our Site and understanding and improving the effectiveness of our advertising.
To gain full access to our Site and Services, you must register for a Specter account. When you register for an account, we collect Personal Information such as the following:
- Your name, company name, location, email address, phone number, and account password, to set up your account
- Your IP addresses, devices, and locations used to access Specter, which will be linked to your account for fraud detection/prevention purposes
Our Site and Services are directed to the general public. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 13 years of age.
We may use and disclose information that is not Personal Information for any purpose, except where we are required to do otherwise under applicable law. In some instances, we may combine non-Personal Information with Personal Information. If we do, we will treat the combined information as Personal Information as long as it is combined.
3. Sharing and disclosure of information
We may disclose your Personal Information to law enforcement, government officials, or other third parties if we believe necessary or appropriate: (i) to respond to a subpoena, court order or other legal process, (ii) to comply with laws, statutes, rules or regulations, (iii) to prevent physical harm or financial loss, to report suspected illegal activity, or to investigate violations of our Terms of Service.
In addition, in the event of a merger, acquisition, reorganization, bankruptcy, or other similar events, any information in our possession may be transferred to our successor or assign.
4. Choice and opt-out
We may occasionally email you with information about offers or new services. You can opt out of these marketing email communications by replying with unsubscribe in the subject line, or via an unsubscribe link included in such communications. However, you will continue to receive certain email communications related to your account including information regarding transactions and your relationship with Specter.
5. Protection of information
Although no data transmission can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, we take reasonable steps to protect Personal Information.

In certain circumstances, courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies or security authorities in those other countries may be entitled to access your Personal Information.
