What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Your privacy is very important to us. At sarahdawntunis.com we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

It is Sarahdawn Tunis’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating this website.

Website Visitors

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

Sarahdawn Tunis also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on my blog. Sarahdawn Tunis 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 Sarahdawn Tunis’s websites choose to interact with Sarahdawn Tunis in ways that require Sarahdawn Tunis to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Sarahdawn Tunis 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 updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Sarahdawn Tunis collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Sarahdawn Tunis. Sarahdawn Tunis 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.
