Your privacy is very important to me. I have a few fundamental principles that I follow:
- I don’t ask you for personal information unless I truly need it.
- I don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop my products, or protect my rights.
- I don’t store personal information on my servers unless required for the on-going operation of my site.
- I respect your privacy regarding any information I may collect while operating my websites.
I collect 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. This is to better understand how my visitors use my website.
I may collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on my blog. I only disclose logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that I use and disclose 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
The amount and type of information that I gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, I ask visitors who comment on my blog to provide a name and email address. For people enquiring about my products or services by email or through a web form, I collect their email addresses and other identifying details that are provided to us in the form. I will only collect as much information as is necessary for each visitor’s interaction with us, and I don’t disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, although this may affect my ability to provide them with products and services (for example, replying to an enquiry).
I may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to my websites. I do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
I disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that need to know this information in order to provide a product or service and have agreed not to disclose it to others – as an exception, I will disclose 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 company, third parties or the public at large. Some of my employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country and by using this website you consent to the transfer of such information to them. I will not sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. If you have supplied your email address, I may contact you to tell you about new products or services, to update you on any ongoing issues, or to get your feedback. And I will take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
