Website Visitors

Like most website operators, ScottTroyer.com 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. ScottTroyer.com’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how ScottTroyer.com’s visitors use its website. From time to time, ScottTroyer.com may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

ScottTroyer.com also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. ScottTroyer.com 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

In each case, ScottTroyer.com collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with ScottTroyer.com. ScottTroyer.com 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.

We primarily use our blogs and social media 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.
