Like most website operators, Blinkers 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. Blinkers’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Blinkers’s visitors use its website.
Blinkers does not accept commenting on posts, articles or portolfio entries, as such we do not collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs.
Blinkers may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Blinkers may monitor the most popular pages on the list25.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Blinkers may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Blinkers does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Certain visitors to Blinkers’s websites choose to interact with Blinkers in ways that require Blinkers to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Blinkers gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our contact form to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to contact Blinkers via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Blinkers collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Blinkers. Blinkers 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. Comments and other content submitted through our contact form are not saved on our servers.
Blinkers discloses potentially personally-identifying only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Blinkers’s behalf or to provide services available at Blinkers’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 Blinkers’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Blinkers 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, Blinkers discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Blinkers believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Blinkers, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Blinkers website and have supplied your email address, Blinkers 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 Blinkers 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. Blinkers takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Blinkers, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Blinkers 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 Blinkers may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
