Privacy Policy

It is Nick Murphy Org (“NM”) policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating this website.

Website Visitors

Like most websites, NM utilizes Google Analytics (a Google Inc. service) to collect 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. NM purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how NM visitors use this website. From time to time, NM may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

NM also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on nickmurphy.org. NM 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 and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of NM.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to NM’s websites choose to interact with NM in ways that require NM to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that NM gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who create an account at nickmurphy.org to provide a username and email address. In each case, NM collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with NM. NM 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

NM may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. NM may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, NM does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
