Like most website operators, Litany 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. Litany's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Litany's visitors use its website. From time to time, Litany may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Litany also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users posting material to Litany services. Litany 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 Litany's websites choose to interact with Litany in ways that require Litany to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Litany gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at NovelNode.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Litany are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Litany collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Litany. Litany 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.
Litany may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Litany may monitor the most popular pages on the NovelNode.com site. Litany may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Litany does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Litany 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 Litany's behalf or to provide services available at Litany'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 Litany's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Litany 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, Litany discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Litany believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Litany, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Litany website and have supplied your email address, Litany 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 Litany 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. Litany takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Litany, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Litany goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Litany may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
