1. This blog is hosted at WordPress.com.
WordPress and it service providers (the “Hosts”) host this blog. They might collect certain information from you when you access and use this blog. I am not responsible for the practices or policies of the Hosts. You should visit the WordPress.com site for information about that.
A “referrer” is the information passed along by a web browser that references the web URL from which you come to bigdataandthelaw.com. Referrers are automatically collected by the Hosts’ web servers and made available to me. I use referrers to identify the websites referring traffic to bigdataandthelaw.com. I may also use referrers to present appropriate content to bigdataandthelaw.com users, and to identify general trends and traffic patterns. For example, I may use referrer information to identify the information on bigdataandthelaw.com that is viewed by individuals referred by certain websites.
4. IP addresses.
IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used to identify your computer so that data (such as the web pages you request) can be sent to you. They are automatically collected by the Hosts’ web servers.
5. System information.
System information I collect might include, among other things, the type of web browser being used. This information is sent automatically by your web browser when you are connected to a website and I use it to identify broad demographic statistics and general trends and traffic patterns.
6. Information you provide.
From time to time you might choose to provide information to me. For example, this occurs when you register to make comments.
7. Information use.
The information I collect may be used in an aggregated and de-identified form to understand general user trends and other similar information.
8. Information disclosure.
At times, I must disclose information about my customers to business partners. For example, I might have to respond to requests for information from law enforcement agencies or as required in civil litigation. I might also need to disclose certain information to businesses that provide services to me, so that they may perform those services. I require such service providers to keep your information confidential.
I might also disclose to others the information regarding your access to and use of bigdataandthelaw.com, provided that, to the best of my knowledge, it is de-identified. This information might include referrer information and the other information that I collect through bigdataandthelaw.com.
