Website Visitors

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

Merch Informer also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blog. Merch Informer 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 and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Merch Informer’s Website choose to interact with Merch Informer in ways that require Merch Informer to gather personally-identifying information.
