WEB SITE VISITORS.

Like most website operators, Health Foundry 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. Health Foundry’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Health Foundry’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Health Foundry may release non-personally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Health Foundry also collects potentially personally identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://www.healthfoundry.com.au blog posts. Health Foundry only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally identifying information as described below:

 

GATHERING OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFYING INFORMATION:

Certain visitors to Health Foundry’s websites choose to interact with Health Foundry in ways that require Health Foundry to gather personally identifying information.

COMMENTS:

When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

ANALYTICS:

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely.
