Like most website operators, VentraIP (who host the TruckSafe 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.
VentraIP’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how VentraIP’s visitors use its website.
From time to time, VentraIP may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
VentraIP also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. VentraIP 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 VentraIP’s websites choose to interact with VentraIP in ways that require VentraIP to gather personally-identifying information.
The amount and type of information that VentraIP gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.
In each case, VentraIP collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with VentraIP.
VentraIP 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.
VentraIP may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites.
For instance, VentraIP may monitor the most popular blogs on the WordPress.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. VentraIP may display this information publicly or provide it to others.
However, VentraIP does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns.
