Your privacy is very important to me, and I follow the following fundamental principles:
- I don’t ask you for personal information unless I truly need it for the operation of the website.
- I don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop the service, or protect our rights.
- I don’t store personal information on MicroEnglish servers unless required for the on-going operation of the site.
Like most website operators, MicroEnglish 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. This information helps me to better understand how MicroEnglish visitors use the website.
MicroEnglish also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. MicroEnglish 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 administrator (me) where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
MicroEnglish collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with MicroEnglish. MicroEnglish 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.
I collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors on MicroEnglish. However, I never disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
MicroEnglish discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when MicroEnglish believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the rights of MicroEnglish, third parties or the public at large. MicroEnglish takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
