Website Visitors

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

Plotagraph may also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on digital products. Plotagraph 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 may be visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Plotagraph’s website and digital products may voluntarily interact with Plotagraph in ways that require Plotagraph to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Plotagraph may gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account on plotagraphpro.com to provide a username and email address. In each case, Plotagraph collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Plotagraph. Plotagraph 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 and digital products-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Plotagraph discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Plotagraph’s behalf or to provide services available at Plotagraph’s website and digital products, 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 Plotagraph’s website and digital products you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Plotagraph 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, Plotagraph discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Plotagraph believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Plotagraph, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the Plotagraph website and have supplied your email address, Plotagraph 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 Plotagraph 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. Plotagraph takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
