Privacy Policy

Introduction

This is my personal website and it is my policy to respect your privacy regarding any information that may be collected while operating the website.

Website Visitors

Like so many others, 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 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. 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 commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the site webmaster.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to the website choose to interact with it in ways that require the gathering of personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that is gathered depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up on the blog to provide a username and email address. 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 it. The website does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Statistics may be collected about the behaviour of visitors to the website. However, personally-identifying information never is disclosed other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only is disclosed to the webmaster, any contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on behalf of the website behalf or to provide services available through the website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. The webmaster, any contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using the website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information will not be sold to anyone. Other than those described above, the website discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when I believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of the website, third parties or the public at large. 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.
