Like most website operators, The ProMedia Group 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. The ProMedia Group's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The ProMedia Group's visitors use its website. From time to time, The ProMedia Group may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
The ProMedia Group also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on TheProMediaGroup.com blogs/sites. The ProMedia Group 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 commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to The ProMedia Group's websites choose to interact with The ProMedia Group in ways that require The ProMedia Group to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The ProMedia Group gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at TheProMediaGroup.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with The ProMedia Group are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, The ProMedia Group collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with The ProMedia Group. The ProMedia Group 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.
The ProMedia Group may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. The ProMedia Group may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, The ProMedia Group does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
