Like most website operators, WhatCurrency 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. WhatCurrency purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how WhatCurrency visitors use its website. From time to time, WhatCurrency may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

WhatCurrency also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on whatcurrency.net blogs/sites. WhatCurrency 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 WhatCurrency websites choose to interact with WhatCurrency in ways that require WhatCurrency to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that WhatCurrency gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at whatcurrency.net to provide a username and email address.

In each case, WhatCurrency collects such information only as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with WhatCurrency. WhatCurrency 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.
