I, Robert Smart, own and operate this website, hereafter referred to as robertsmart.com. It is my policy and practice to respect your privacy regarding any information that may be collected while operating this website or any related sites.
Like most websites, iamrobertsmart.com collects information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available. This information is of a non-personally-identifying type and includes data such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The purpose in collecting this information is to better understand how visitors use this website. From time to time, I may release non-personally-identifying information in an aggregate form, for example, by publishing a report on volume and usage trends of the website.
iamrobertsmart.com also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blog posts. iamrobertsmart.com 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 comment were left.
There are visitors to this website who choose to interact and communicate 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 may ask visitors who contact me for their name, email address, and other identifying information. Those who engage in transactions with me – by engaging me for website design and development services, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, I collect such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with me. I do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Every visitor has the right to refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the proviso that it may prevent them from experiencing certain website-related activities.
I may collect data about visitor behaviour on this website and I may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, I do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
I disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of my employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on my behalf or to provide services available at iamrobertsmart.com and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.
I will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, I disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, 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 send me a request, I reserve the right to publish it in order to help clarify or respond to your request or to help 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.
