Like most website operators, SCION 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. SCION’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how SCION’s visitors use its website. From time to time, SCION may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
SCION also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://scion.org/ blog posts. SCION only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to SCION’s websites choose to interact with SCION in ways that require SCION to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that SCION gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at https://scion.org/ to provide a username and email address.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure.
