Like most website operators, WordPress Whale 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. WordPress Whale’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how WordPress Whale’s visitors use its website.
WordPress Whale also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. WordPress Whale only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to WordPress Whale’s websites choose to interact with WordPress Whale in ways that require WordPress Whale to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that WordPress Whale gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with WordPress Whale – by purchasing access a membership subscription, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, WordPress Whale collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with WordPress Whale. WordPress Whale 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.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
WordPress Whale 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 WordPress Whale’s behalf, 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 WordPress Whale’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. WordPress Whale 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, WordPress Whale discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when WordPress Whale believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of WordPress Whale, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the WordPress Whale website and have supplied your email address, WordPress Whale 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 WordPress Whale 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. WordPress Whale takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If WordPress Whale, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that WordPress Whale 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 WordPress Whale may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
