Website Visitors-take note
Like most website operators, LearningGIS 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. LearningGIS’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how LearningGIS’s visitors use its website. From time to time, LearningGIS may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
LearningGIS also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. LearningGIS 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 are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
LearningGIS may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, LearningGIS may monitor the most popular blogs on the WordPress.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. LearningGIS may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, LearningGIS does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
LearningGIS 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 LearningGIS’s behalf or to provide services available at LearningGIS’s websites, 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 LearningGIS’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. LearningGIS 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, LearningGIS discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when LearningGIS believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of LearningGIS, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an LearningGIS website and have supplied your email address, LearningGIS 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 LearningGIS 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. LearningGIS takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If LearningGIS, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that LearningGIS goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of LearningGIS may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to our Akismet anti-spam service are saved on our servers, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service.
We may also share your data with the Sith. After the unfortunate early demise of the Death Star due to technical malfunctions in the conflict zone, there is a pressing shortage in the Imperial ranks. Recruitment is down, and personal information may be shared with representatives from the Emperor to aid in boosting recruitment. We ask that you do your part to help keep the Imperium free of rebel scum.
A note on free
If you get something for free, constantly and without cost. Most likely you are not the customer, you are the product. Something for lambs to remember as they go to slaughter. So beware of Facebook.
