It is the policy of this website to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating this website.
Like most website operators, this 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. This websites’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use this website. From time to time, the website may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of this website.
This website also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on the website’s blog. This website 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 this website choose to interact with the website in ways that require the operator to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that this website gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive WPBeginner updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, this website collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with this website. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
This website’s operator may collect statistics about the behavior of the visitors of this website. For instance, the operator may use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. This website’s operator may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, the operator does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

This website takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
