Like most website operators, English Zone 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. English Zone’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how English Zone’s visitors use its website. From time to time, English Zone may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g. by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
English Zone also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. English Zone does not use such information to identify its visitors, 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 English Zone’s websites choose to interact with English Zone in ways that require English Zone to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that English Zone gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for English Zone.com to provide a username and email address. In each case, English Zone collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with English Zone. English Zone 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.
English Zone may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, English Zone may monitor the most popular collections on English Zone.com. English Zone may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, English Zone does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
