Like most website operators, Realtime Politics 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. Realtime Politics‘s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Realtime Politics‘s visitors use its website. From time to time, Realtime Politics may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Realtime Politics also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on http://realtimepolitics.com blogs/sites. Realtime Politics 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 commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Realtime Politics‘s websites choose to interact with Realtime Politics in ways that require Realtime Politics to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Realtime Politics gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at Realtime Politics to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Realtime Politics are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Realtime Politics collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Realtime Politics. Realtime Politics 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.
Realtime Politics may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Realtime Politics may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Realtime Politics does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
