Website Visitors

Like many websites, seanreagan.com 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. The purpose in collecting this information is simply to better understand how visitors make use of this site in order to better serve their needs.

Seanreagan.com also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments.  This information is used and/or disclosed as outlined below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to seanreagan.com choose to interact with the site in ways that require the site to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that is so gathered depends on the nature of the interaction. Primarily this will happen through blog comments or use of the contact form. Any disclosure of personally-identifying information is made only as described below.

Please remember that you can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information either by using your browser’s anonymous browsing tools, not providing personally-identifying information, and declining to visit the website.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
