Life It Or Not blog complies with the Data Protection Act of 1998.
Your privacy is very important to me. At Life It Or Not, there are a few fundamental principles that are followed:
- I won’t ask you for personal information unless it is truly needed. (I can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
- I won’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop my products, or protect my rights.
- I won’t store personal information on my servers unless required for the on-going operation of my site.
Like most websites, Life It Or Not 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.
Life It Or Not’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Life It Or Not’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Life It Or Not may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Life It Or Not also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs.
