Website Visitors

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

Hannah Beach also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on hannahbeach.com blogs/sites. Hannah Beach 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 commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
