1. Website visitors

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

The website also collects potentially personally-identifying information like IP addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blog posts. I disclose logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that I use and disclose personally-identifying information as described below.

2. Personally-identifying information

Certain visitors to the website choose to interact with me in ways that require me to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that I gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, I ask visitors who leave a comment at https://etiennemahler.com to provide a username and email address.

3. Security

The security of your personal information is important to me, but remember that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While I strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, I cannot guarantee its absolute security.

4. Advertisements

Ads appearing on the website may be delivered to users by advertising partners (such as by DigitalPress, the provider of this blog, itself ), who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognise your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This privacy policy covers the use of cookies by me and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

6. Google AdWords for remarketing

This website may use remarketing services to advertise on third party websites (including Google) to visitors to this site. It could mean that I advertise to visitors who haven't completed a task on the site, for example using the contact form to make an enquiry. This could be in the form of an advertisement on the Google search results page, or a site in the Google Display Network. Third-party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on someone's past visits. Of course, any data collected will be used in accordance with my own privacy policy and Google's privacy policy.

You can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Preferences page, and if you want to you can opt out of interest-based advertising entirely by cookie settings or permanently using a browser plugin like uBlock.

7. Protection of certain personally-identifying information

I disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of my employees, contractors, and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on my behalf or to provide services available on this website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors, and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using the website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. I will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to my employees, contractors, and affiliated organisations, as described above, I disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when I believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of myself, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of https://etiennemahler.com and have supplied your email address, I may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new articles, features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with my website, services or products. I primarily use the blog to communicate this type of information, so I expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send me a request (for example via a support email or via one of the feedback mechanisms), I reserve the right to publish it in order to help me clarify or respond to your request or to help me support other users. I take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
