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