Website Visitors

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

Screen Sleuth also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, email addresses, and aggregate user data. Screen Sleuth does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, 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.
