WEBSITE VISITORS

Like most website operators, youbloom 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. youbloom’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use our website.

youbloom also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments. Youbloom 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 youbloom’s websites choose to interact with youbloom in ways that require youbloom to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that youbloom gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who leave a comment on our blog for an email address. Those who engage in transactions with youbloom – by purchasing a product or service, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions.

In each case, youbloom collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with youbloom. youbloom 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.

youbloom may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. youbloom may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, youbloom does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
