Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Before & After Media 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. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use our website. From time to time, Before & After Media may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Before & After Media also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Subscribers to our websites choose to interact with Before & After Media in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, for those who wish to receive updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, we collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the site. Before & After Media does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
