Although our use of passive collection technologies may change over time as technology evolves, the above descriptions are designed to provide you with additional detail about our current approach to information collected from passive technologies.
We take what we believe to be reasonable steps to protect the personal information collected by us from loss, misuse, unauthorized use, access, inadvertent disclosure, alteration, and destruction. However, no network, server, database, or Internet or email transmission is ever fully secure, error-free, or “hacker proof.” Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you provide to us. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any personal information. You acknowledge that the technical processing and transmission of the Site content may be transferred unencrypted and involve (a) transmissions over various networks and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices. Accordingly, Helltides is not responsible for the security of information transmitted via the Internet. You also agree that Helltides shall not be liable to you for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Site.
We generally retain personal information for so long as it may be relevant to the purposes above, or for longer when required by law. To dispose of personal information, we may anonymize it, delete it, or take other appropriate steps. Even if we delete your personal information, it may persist on backup or archival media for an additional period of time for legal, tax, or regulatory reasons, or for legitimate and lawful business purposes.
Helltides is based in the United States. No matter where you are located, you consent to the processing, transfer, and storage of your personal information in and to the United States. The laws of the United States governing data protection may not be as comprehensive or as protective as the laws in the country where you live.

As such, Helltides assumes no liability for the accuracy of such information, no duty to update or correct such information, and no liability for such communications arising under the laws of copyright, libel, privacy, obscenity, or otherwise. Any comment system on the Site may utilize an opt-in Geolocation service in accordance with a prevailing community standard such as HTML 5. Such Geolocation opt-in ability is managed by the user’s browser settings. If a user chooses to opt-in to the Geolocation service, the user’s comments may be associated with the user’s location, both internally within Helltides and publicly on the Site.
