1. Website Visitors
Like most website operators, The Cosmic Spindle 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 Cosmic Spindle’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The Cosmic Spindle’s visitors use its website. From time to time, The Cosmic Spindle may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
The Cosmic Spindle also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://thecosmicspindle.ca blog posts. The Cosmic Spindle only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
