Like most website operators, Pizzeria Serio 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. Pizzeria Serio’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Pizzeria Serio’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Pizzeria Serio may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Pizzeria Serio also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. Pizzeria Serio 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.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Pizzeria Serio’s websites choose to interact with Pizzeria Serio in ways that require Pizzeria Serio to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Automattic gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who request a free site audit to provide a username, phone number and email address. In each case, Pizzeria Serio collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Pizzeria Serio 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.
Pizzeria Serio may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Pizzeria Serio may monitor the most popular blogs on the WordPress.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Pizzeria Serio may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Pizzeria Serio does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Pizzeria Serio 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 Pizzeria Serio’s behalf or to provide services available at Pizzeria Serio’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 Pizzeria Serio’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Pizzeria Serio 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, Pizzeria Serio discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Pizzeria Serio believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Automattic, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Pizzeria Serio website and have supplied your email address, Pizzeria Serio 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 Pizzeria Serio and our products. 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. Pizzeria Serio takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
