The short story is that EDC will not on purpose do anything evil with any information that you leave behind by visiting this site.
The policy of EDC is to respect your privacy regarding any information that might be collected while operating this website. Like most websites, this website 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. The purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use this website. Non-personally-identifying information might be used to present aggregate information, e.g., visitor statistics or trends in the usage of this website.
This website also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments using our content management system (WordPress.com blog). EDC 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 this sites content management system.
Visitors to this website may choose to interact with EDC in ways that require EDC to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that will be gathered depends on the nature of the interaction, and only information necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction. This is usually your name and e-mail address, and this information will only be used to reply to your inquiry or present your Gravatar. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it might prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
EDC might collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to this website. For instance, monitoring the most popular articles on this site and display this information publicly. No personally-identifying information will be disclosed other than as described below:
EDC might disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those employees, contractors and service providers that:
This information might be stored at locations outside of your home country, depending on the service providers this site uses (currently USA and Norway).
EDC will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. EDC will disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when EDC believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of EDC, third parties or the public at large. EDC will take reasonably necessary measures to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If EDC, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that EDC goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of EDC may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
