Privacy and Policy

Introduction

iam-blogger.net takes the private nature of your personal information very seriously.

This privacy policy, which we adapted from a policy originally provided by Automattic(WordPress.com), describes how we treat the information we collect when you visit and use our websites. Please read this notice very carefully.

Website Visitors

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

iam-blogger.net also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. iam-blogger.net does not use such information to identify its visitors, 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 iam-blogger.net websites choose to interact with iam-blogger.net in ways that require iam-blogger.net to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that iam-blogger.net gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for iam-blogger.net to provide a username and email address. In each case, iam-blogger.net collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with iam-blogger.net. iam-blogger.net 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.

Aggregated Statistics

iam-blogger.net may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, iam-blogger.net may monitor the most popular collections on iam-blogger.net. iam-blogger.netmay display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, iam-blogger.net does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

iam-blogger.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 iam-blogger.net behalf or to provide services available at iam-blogger.net 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 iam-blogger.net websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. In addition, in some cases we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if iam-blogger.net or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that iam-blogger.net 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 acquiror of iam-blogger.net may continue to use your personal and non-personal information only as set forth in this policy. Otherwise, iam-blogger.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, iam-blogger.net discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when iam-blogger.net believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of iam-blogger.net, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a iam-blogger.net website and have supplied your email address, iam-blogger.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 iam-blogger.net and its products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. iam-blogger.net takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

You should also be aware that if you submit information to “chat rooms,” “forums” or “message boards” such information becomes public information, meaning that you lose any privacy rights you might have with regards to that information. Such disclosures may also increase your chances of receiving unwanted communications.

Advertising

Advertising keeps Google and many of the websites and services you use free of charge. We work hard to make sure that ads are safe, unobtrusive and as relevant as possible. For example, you won’t see pop-up ads on Google and we terminate the accounts of hundreds of thousands of publishers and advertisers that violate our policies each year – including ads containing malware, ads for counterfeit goods or those that attempt to misuse your personal information.

How Google uses cookies in advertising

Cookies help to make advertising more effective – and that is what keeps thousands of websites free of charge. Without cookies, it’s harder for an advertiser to reach its audience, or to know how many ads were shown and how many clicks they received.

Many websites, such as news sites and blogs, partner with Google to show ads to their visitors. Working with our partners, we may use cookies for a number of purposes, such as to stop you seeing the same ad over and over again, to detect and stop click fraud, and to show ads that are likely to be more relevant (such as ads based on websites you have visited).

We store a record of the ads we serve in our logs. These server logs typically include your web request, IP address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request, and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser. We store this data for a number of reasons, the most important of which are to improve our services and to maintain the security of our systems. We anonymize this log data by removing part of the IP address (after 9 months) and cookie information (after 18 months).

Our advertising cookies

To help our partners manage their advertising and websites, we offer many products, including AdSense, AdWords, Google Analytics, and a range of DoubleClick-branded services. When you visit a page that uses one of these products, either on one of Google’s sites or one of our partners’, various cookies may be sent to your browser.

These may be set from a few different domains, including google.com, doubleclick.net, invitemedia.com, admeld.com, googlesyndication.com, or googleadservices.com. Some of our advertising products enable our partners to use other services in conjunction with ours (like an ad measurement and reporting service) and these services may send their own cookies to your browser. These cookies will be set from their domains.

See more detail about the types of cookie used by Google and our partners, and how we use them.

How you can control advertising cookies

You can use Ads Settings to manage the Google ads you see.

You can also manage many companies’ cookies used for online advertising at the US-based aboutads.info choices page or the EU-based Your Online Choices.

Finally, you can manage cookies in your web browser.

Other technologies used in advertising

Google’s advertising systems may use other technologies, including Flash and HTML5, for functions like display of interactive ad formats. We may use the IP address, for example, to identify your general location. We may also select advertising based on information about your computer or device, such as your device model, browser type, or sensors in your device like the accelerometer.

Anonymous identifiers on mobile devices

To serve ads in services where cookie technology may not be available (for example, in mobile applications), we may use anonymous identifiers. These perform similar functions to cookies. To control the ads that we serve to apps on your mobile device, you can use our Ads Settings for apps. To change your preferences, or to opt out of interest-based ads, follow the instructions below for your mobile device.

Android

Open the Google Settings app on your device
Select Ads

iOS

Some apps on iOS 6 devices use Apple’s Advertising Identifier; to learn more about limiting ad tracking using this identifier, visit the Settings menu on your iOS 6 device. Legacy apps on your iOS 6 device, as well as apps on devices running older versions of iOS, may use a different device identifier. To opt out for these apps:

Open the Google Search app on your device
Press the Settings icon
Go to Ads Preferences
