Privacy Policy

 

Website Visitors

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

Dark Street Press also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. Dark Street Press 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 Dark Street Press’s website choose to interact with Dark Street Press in ways that require Dark Street Press to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Dark Street Press gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at Dark Street Press to provide a username and email address. Dark Street Press 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.

Aggregated Statistics

Dark Street Press may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. Dark Street Press may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Dark Street Press does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Dark Street Press discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Dark Street Press’s behalf or to provide services available at Dark Street Press’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Dark Street Press’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Dark Street Press will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Dark Street Press discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Dark Street Press believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Dark Street Press, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the Dark Street Press website and have supplied your email address, Dark Street Press may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Dark Street Press. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request, we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Dark Street Press takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
