Like most website operators, LogicalShout 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. LogicalShout‘s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how LogicalShout’s visitors use its website. From time to time, LogicalShout may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
LogicalShout also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on LogicalShout.com. LogicalShout 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.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

For example, we ask visitors who sign up at LogicalShout to provide an email address for subscribing to our newsletters. LogicalShout 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.
LogicalShout may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. We may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, we do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, LogicalShout discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when LogicalShout believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of LogicalShout third parties or the public at large.
