Website Visitors

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

The Okie Angler also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on TheOkieAngler.com blogs/sites. The Okie Angler 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.
