Like most website operators, this website, which is technically based upon the Content Management System WordPress (http://wordpress.org/), 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
- the date and time of each visitor request
The purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use our website. This information will not be published and will only be used for internal information purposes. This website also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. We do not use such information to identify our visitors, however, and do 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
This website may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors. For instance, it may reveal how many downloads a particular version got, or say which plugins are most popular based on checks from api.wordpress.org, a web service used by WordPress installations to check for new versions of WordPress and plugins. However, we do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
We disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those employees, contractors, and partners that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on our behalf or to provide services available at our website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and partners may be located outside of your home country; by using this website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. We will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to employees, contractors, and partners, as described above, we disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect our property or rights, third parties, or the public at large. Partners must provide an email address to obtain a user account for this website. If you are a registered user of this website, we may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date. We primarily use our blog 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 email), 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. We take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
