Like most website operators, Web Of Friends 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. Web Of Friends’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Web Of Friends’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Web Of Friends may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Web Of Friends also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Web Of Friends 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 Web Of Friends’s websites choose to interact with Web Of Friends in ways that require Web Of Friends to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Web Of Friends gathers depends 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 Web Of Friends updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Web Of Friends collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Web Of Friends. Web Of Friends 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.
Web Of Friends may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Web Of Friends may use spam screened by the Wordfence service to help identify spam. Web Of Friends may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Web Of Friends does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Web Of Friends 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 Web Of Friends’s behalf or to provide services available at Web Of Friends’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 Web Of Friends’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Web Of Friends 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, Web Of Friends discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Web Of Friends believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Web Of Friends, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Web Of Friends website and have supplied your email address, Web Of Friends 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 Web Of Friends and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs 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 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. Web Of Friends takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
