Like most website operators, Mary Hansen Design 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. Mary Hansen Design’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Mary Hansen Design’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Mary Hansen Design may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Mary Hansen Design also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Mary Hansen Design 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.
Certain visitors to Mary Hansen Design’s websites choose to interact with Mary Hansen Design in ways that require Mary Hansen Design to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Mary Hansen Design 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. If you inquire about Mary Hansen Design’s services via email, we collect your emails. In each case, Mary Hansen Design collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Mary Hansen Design.

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.
Mary Hansen Design may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Mary Hansen Design may monitor the most popular pages on the list25.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Mary Hansen Design may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Mary Hansen Design does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Mary Hansen Design 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 Mary Hansen Design’s behalf or to provide services available at Mary Hansen Design’s websites, 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 Mary Hansen Design’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Mary Hansen Design discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Mary Hansen Design believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Mary Hansen Design, third parties or the public at large.

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 (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), 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. Mary Hansen Design takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
