Privacy Policy

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, ReptileTalk 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. ReptileTalk’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how ReptileTalk’s visitors use its website. From time to time, ReptileTalk may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
ReptileTalk also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. ReptileTalk does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to ReptileTalk choose to interact with ReptileTalk in ways that require ReptileTalk to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that ReptileTalk gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our forums to provide a name and email address. In each case, ReptileTalk collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with ReptileTalk. ReptileTalk does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

ReptileTalk may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, ReptileTalk may reveal which articles are most popular based on checks from Google Analytics. However, ReptileTalk does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

ReptileTalk will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, ReptileTalk discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when ReptileTalk believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of ReptileTalk, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a ReptileTalk website and have supplied your email address, ReptileTalk may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with ReptileTalk. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. ReptileTalk takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
