Like most website operators, Advice Town 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.
Advice Town’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Advice Town’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Advice Town may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Advice Town also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Advice Town does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Certain visitors to Advice Town’s websites choose to interact with Advice Town in ways that require Advice Town to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Advice Town gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use join as members to provide a username and email address. In each case, Advice Town collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Advice Town. Advice Town 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.
Advice Town may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Advice Town may reveal how many downloads a particular video received. However, Advice Town does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Advice Town 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 Advice Town’s behalf or to provide services available at Advice Town’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 Advice Town’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Advice Town 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, Advice Town discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Advice Town believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Advice Town, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Advice Town website and have supplied your email address, Advice Town 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 Advice Town and our products. We primarily use our blog 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. Advice Town takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
