What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Website Visitors

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

The Dr.Twister Network also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on http://drtwister.net blog posts. The Dr.Twister Network only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized 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.
