Like most website operators, this Greystone Relocation Concierge 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. Greystone’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Greystone’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Greystone may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Greystone also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Greystone 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.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Greystone’s websites (including wordcamp.org) choose to interact with Greystone in ways that require Greystone to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Greystone gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our forums to provide a username and email address. In each case, Greystone collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Greystone. Greystone 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.
Greystone may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Greystone may reveal how many downloads a particular version got, or say which plugins are most popular based on checks from api.Greystone, a web service used by WordPress installations to check for new versions of WordPress and plugins. However, Greystone does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Greystone 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 Greystone’s behalf or to provide services available at Greystone’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 Greystone’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Greystone 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, Greystone discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Greystone believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Greystone, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Greystone website and have supplied your email address, Greystone 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 Greystone and our products. Greystone takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
