In today’s everything-is-online-for-the-whole-world-to-see environment, everything you do and say online is collected. Mostly for good reasons – like to tailor content and ads based on your interests and preferences. Nonetheless, I think it’s importation to be upfront about what kind of information the site collects and how it uses it.
I like to treat you (Money Mellow readers) and your information the same way I would want everyone else to treat me and my information.
Like most website operators, Money Mellow 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. Money Mellow’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Money Mellow’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Money Mellow may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Money Mellow also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://moneymellow.com blog posts. Money Mellow only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
