Privacy Policy for MarcCarson.com

Website Visitors

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

MarcCarson.com also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. MarcCarson.com 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.

Do Not Track (DNT) Headers

MarcCarson.com does not currently respond to Do Not Track (DNT) headers. I will be reviewing this policy in the near future.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to MarcCarson.com’s websites choose to interact with MarcCarson.com in ways that require MarcCarson.com to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that MarcCarson.com gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, I ask visitors who use my forums or other communication tools to provide a username and email address. In each case, MarcCarson.com collects such information only as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with MarcCarson.com. MarcCarson.com 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.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

MarcCarson.com will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.

If you are a registered user of a MarcCarson.com newsletter and have supplied your email address, MarcCarson.com 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 MarcCarson.com and my services and products.
