Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Poached’s websites choose to interact with Poached in ways that require Poached to gather personally-identifying information.

In each case, Poached collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Poached. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Poached 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 are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
