Like most website operators, ThiOrTha 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. ThiOrTha’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use the website. From time to time, ThiOrTha may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
ThiOrTha also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs.ThiOrTha 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 ThiOrTha choose to interact with the website in ways that require ThiOrTha to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that ThiOrTha 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 ThiOrTha updates via email, we collect their emails.
In each case, ThiOrTha collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the website. ThiOrTha 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.
ThiOrTha may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, ThiOrTha may monitor the most popular pages on the site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam.
