Like most website operators, Social Diving 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. Social Diving’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Social Diving’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Social Diving may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
social-diving.com follows a standard procedure of using log files. These files log visitors when they visit websites. All hosting companies do this and a part of hosting services’ analytics. The information collected by log files include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. These are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable. The purpose of the information is for analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movement on the website, and gathering demographic information.
Social Diving also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged-in users and for users leaving comments on https://www.social-diving.com blog posts. Social Diving only discloses logged-in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Certain visitors to Social Diving’s websites choose to interact with Social Diving in ways that require Social Diving to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Social Diving gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at https://www.social-diving.com to provide a username and email address.
