Website Visitors

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

The Wise Money Home also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. The Wise Money Home 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 The Wise Money Home’s websites choose to interact with The Wise Money Home in ways that require The Wise Money Home to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Wise Money Home gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.

In each case, The Wise Money Home collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Wise Money Home.

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.
