3. Gathering, Use and Disclosure of Non-personally-identifying Information.
Users of the Website Generally: “Non-Personally-Identifying Information” is information that, without the aid of additional information, cannot be directly associated with a specific person. “Personally-Identifying Information,” by contrast, is information such as a name or email address that, without more, can be directly associated with a specific person.
Like most website operators, Blogs Hoster gathers from users of the Website Non-Personally-Identifying Information of the sort that Web browsers, depending on their settings, may make available.
That information includes the user’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system and browser type, and the locations of the Web pages the user views right before arriving at, while navigating and immediately after leaving the Website. Although such information is not personally identifiable, it may be possible for Blogs Hoster to determine from an IP address a user’s Internet service provider and the geographic location of the visitor’s point of connectivity as well as other statistical usage data.
Blogs Hoster analyzes Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from users of the Website to help Blogs Hoster better understand how the Website is being used. By identifying patterns and trends in usage, Blogs Hoster is able to better design the Website to improve users’ experiences, both in terms of content and ease of use.
From time to time, Blogs Hoster may also release the Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from Website users in the aggregate, such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Website.
