Privacy policy

Short version

In a nutshell: Shark Attack won’t spam you.

We’ll never sell your email address to anybody who might.

We do engage in marketing by email, but any mass mailing that we send out will carry an unsubscribe link. It will be honoured.

Longer version

  1. Shark Attack respects and protects your privacy. To simply browse the site you do not need to provide any information about yourself. However, if you make enquiries via this site’s online form, you will be asked to provide your name, email address, and ideally a few other bits of relevant information.

    Similarly, if you submit a comment to the weblog you will be asked to provide an email address.

    Shark Attack will never give out this information without your consent (caveat: see item 6 below).

  2. By using email to contact Shark Attack (including use of this site’s contact form) you accept that the normal issues pertaining to the levels of privacy and security (or lack thereof) inherent in standard email shall apply.

    As a rule of thumb, sending an email should be considered about as secure as writing your message on a regular postcard and sending it through the mail.

  3. At this time Shark Attack is not an e-commerce site, and no financial information will be requested from you via this site.

  4. This web site does not currently use cookies.

  5. We do make use of the standard tools for collecting site metrics, and these tools record such visitor data as IP address, browser type, operating system, the referring web site address, and so on. This information is collected automatically by the web-hosting provider; we also use both Google Analytics and Mint by Shaun Inman. The information is used only to provide general statistics regarding use of Shark Attack’s web site. Such site visitation data is never linked with personal visitor information.

  6. It may be necessary for Shark Attack to disclose your personal information if:

    • required to do so by the laws, rules, and regulations of any nation, state, or other applicable jurisdiction, or
    • there is a need to legally protect and defend the rights or property of Shark Attack and its web site.
  7. Whilst Shark Attack provides links to other web sites, it cannot control and cannot be responsible for the information collection and privacy practices of such third-party web sites, which may differ from this web site’s practices.

  8. By using this web site, you consent to collection, use and storage of information (if any) by Shark Attack in the manner described in this privacy statement.

  9. You are welcome to comment regarding this privacy statement. You are also invited to contact the studio should you have any questions about it.
