Your privacy is very important to us. At GEO my WP we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
GEO my WP LLC (“GEO my WP”) operates several websites including GEOmyWP.com. It is GEO my WP’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, GEO my WP 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. GEO my WP’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how GEO my WP’s visitors use its website. From time to time, GEO my WP may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
GEO my WP also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged-in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. GEO my WP 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 GEO my WP’s websites choose to interact with GEO my WP in ways that require GEO my WP to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that GEO my WP gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. For those who wish to receive GEO my WP updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, GEO my WP collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with GEO my WP. GEO my WP 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.
GEO my WP may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, GEO my WP may monitor the most popular pages on the GEOmyWP.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. GEO my WP may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, GEO my WP does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
GEO my WP 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 GEO my WP’ behalf or to provide services available at GEO my WP’ websites, and (ii) 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 GEO my WP’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. GEO my WP 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, GEO my WP discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental requests, or when GEO my WP believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of GEO my WP, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a GEO my WP website and have supplied your email address, GEO my WP 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 GEO my WP and our products. We primarily use our various product 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. GEO my WP takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If GEO my WP, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that GEO my WP goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that any acquirer of GEO my WP may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to Disqus anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
