The Cave operates

The Cave’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information I may collect while operating my websites.

Website Visitors

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

The Cave also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. The Cave 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

Certain visitors to The Cave’ website choose to interact with The Cave in ways that require The Cave to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Cave gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive The Cave updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, The Cave collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Cave. The Cave 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.

The Cave may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, The Cave may monitor the most popular pages on the site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

The Cave 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 The Cave’ behalf or to provide services available at The Cave’ 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 The Cave’ websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

If you are a registered user of an The Cave website and have supplied your email address, The Cave 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 The Cave 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. The Cave takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
