Your privacy is very important to us. At Additive Blog we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
It is Additive Blog’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website additive.blog.
Like most website operators, Additive Blog 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. Additive Blog’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Additive Blog’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Additive Blog may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Additive Blog also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blog. Additive Blog 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 Additive Blog’s websites choose to interact with Additive Blog in ways that require Additive Blog to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Additive Blog gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive Additive Blog updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Additive Blog collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Additive Blog. Additive Blog 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.
Additive Blog may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Additive Blog may monitor the most popular pages on the additive.blog site or use spam screener by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Additive Blog may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Additive Blog does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Additive Blog discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Additive Blog’s behalf or to provide services available at Additive Blog’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Additive Blog’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Additive Blog will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Additive Blog discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Additive Blog believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Additive Blog, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Additive Blog website and have supplied your email address, Additive Blog may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Additive Blog and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), 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. Additive Blog takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Additive Blog, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Additive Blog goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Additive Blog may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
