IM Product Blogger dot com ("IM Product Blogger") operates IMProductBlogger.com and may operate other websites. It is IM Product Blogger's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, IM Product Blogger 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. IM Product Blogger's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how IM Product Blogger's visitors use its website. From time to time, IM Product Blogger may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
IM Product Blogger also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on IMProductBlogger.com blogs/sites. IM Product Blogger 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.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to IM Product Blogger's websites choose to interact with IM Product Blogger in ways that require IM Product Blogger to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that IM Product Blogger gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at IMProductBlogger.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with IM Product Blogger are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, IM Product Blogger collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with IM Product Blogger. IM Product Blogger 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.
IM Product Blogger may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. IM Product Blogger may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, IM Product Blogger does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
IM Product Blogger discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on IM Product Blogger's behalf or to provide services available at IM Product Blogger's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using IM Product Blogger's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. IM Product Blogger 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, IM Product Blogger discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when IM Product Blogger believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of IM Product Blogger, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an IM Product Blogger website and have supplied your email address, IM Product Blogger 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 IM Product Blogger and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. IM Product Blogger takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If IM Product Blogger, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that IM Product Blogger goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of IM Product Blogger may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

The Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) and the GDPR (in Europe) gives you the right to access information held about you. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with the DPA and GDPR.
*Asking us to not process your data does require us to delete your data, which is legally considered processing your data. So respectfully inform you that we’d have to do that one thing.
COOKIES AND TRACKING
Like many websites, we use “cookies” to enable us to personalize your visits to our Site, simplify the signing-in procedure, keep track of your preferences, for marketing purposes and to track the usage of our Site.
Like any business we like to see if our visitors come from Google, Facebook, another site in order to better manage the business. We use Google Analytics as our analytics package. When we login we can see which pages on this website visitors visited, the paths visitors took, where they came from and how they left. We can not see which website you visited after you leave us however. The only way we could narrow down the information to any one individual is if only one person was on this website that day, and we knew who that was.
