Your privacy is important to us. The Database Site (TDS) follows a few fundamental principles:
Website Visitors: Like most website operators, TDS 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. Our purpose in collecting this information is to better understand how visitors use the website. From time to time, TDS may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. TDS may also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. This information is not used to identify visitors and TDS does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information: Certain visitors to TDS choose to interact with TDS in ways that require TDS to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that TDS gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, TDS collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with TDS. TDS 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.
Aggregated Statistics: TDS may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, TDS may monitor the most popular blogs. TDS may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, TDS does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information: TDS 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 TDS’s behalf or to provide services available at TDS’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 TDS’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. TDS 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, TDS discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when TDS believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of TDS, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an TDS website and have supplied your email address, TDS 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 TDS and our products. We primarily use our various blogs 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. Automattic takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
