Privacy Policy    

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

It is HistoricPA.net’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

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

HistoricPA.net also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. HistoricPA.net 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.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to HistoricPA.net’s websites choose to interact with HistoricPA.net in ways that require HistoricPA.net to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that HistoricPA.net gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a user account at HistoricPA.net to provide a username and email address. HistoricPA.net collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with HistoricPA.net. HistoricPA.net does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Aggregated Statistics

HistoricPA.net may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. However, HistoricPA.net does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

HistoricPA.net discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on HistoricPA.net’s behalf or to provide services available at HistoricPA.net’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using HistoricPA.net’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. HistoricPA.net 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, HistoricPA.net discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when HistoricPA.net believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of HistoricPA.net, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an HistoricPA.net website and have supplied your email address, HistoricPA.net 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 HistoricPA.net. HistoricPA.net takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
