This website 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 visitor request. The purpose of collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use the site. From time to time, the website may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the website.
The website also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on the blog or other pages. The website only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to the website choose to interact with the website in ways that require the website to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that the website gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, visitors who comment on the blog must provide a username (even if it’s “anonymous”) and an email address. Emails are collected for those who wish to receive notice of new blog posts via email. In each case, the website collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the website. The website does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
The website may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to the website. For instance, the website may monitor the most popular pages or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. The website may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, the website does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
The website will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Personally-identifying and personally-identifying information will only be disclosed in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the website property or rights, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of this website and have supplied your email address, email may be sent occasionally to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with the website. I expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. The website takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
Comments and other content submitted to Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on WordPress servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case they are stored long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
