Like most website operators, Offbeat Youth 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. Offbeat Youth’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Offbeat Youth’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Offbeat Youth may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Offbeat Youth also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on the blog. Offbeat Youth 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 blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
