Like most website operators, IPOCS 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. IPOCS’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how IPOCS’s visitors use its website. From time to time, IPOCS may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
IPOCS also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blog posts. IPOCS 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 IPOCS websites choose to interact with IPOCS in ways that require IPOCS to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that IPOCS gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who contact us to provide their email address.
