Your Privacy Is Important To Me

Last updated on February 5th, 2019 by Baldy

Your privacy is very important to me. At Baldy.Blog I have a few fundamental principles that I follow:

I don’t ask you for personal information unless I truly need it. (I can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)

I don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop products, or protect my rights.

It is Baldy.Blog policy to respect your privacy regarding any information I may collect while operating my websites.

Website Visitors
Like most website operators, Baldy.Blog 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. The purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Baldy.Blog visitors use this website. From time to time, Baldy.Blog may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Baldy.Blog also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for users leaving comments. Baldy.Blog 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 this website choose to interact with Baldy.Blog in ways that require Baldy.Blog to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Baldy.Blog gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, I ask visitors who comment on this blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive Baldy.Blog updates via email, I collect their emails. In each case, Baldy.Blog collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Baldy.Blog.

Baldy.Blog 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.

Baldy.Blog may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to this website. For instance, Baldy.Blog may monitor the most popular pages or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Baldy.Blog may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Baldy.Blog does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Baldy.Blog discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Baldy.Blog behalf or to provide services available at Baldy.Blog website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using Baldy.Blog website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Baldy.Blog will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, Baldy.Blog discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Baldy.Blog believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Baldy.Blog, third parties or the public at large.

I take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
