What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Like most website operators, PCAT Literacy Ministries 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. PCAT Literacy Ministries’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how PCAT Literacy Ministries’ visitors use its website. From time to time, PCAT Literacy Ministries may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
PCAT Literacy Ministries also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged-in users and for users leaving comments on PCAT Literacy Ministries’ blogs/sites. PCAT Literacy Ministries 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 commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
