Website Visitors

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

Cricmetric also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for visitng users and for users leaving comments on the blog posts. Cricmetric 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.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Cricmetric choose to interact with Cricmetric in ways that require Cricmetric to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Cricmetric gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Cricmetric collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Cricmetric. Cricmetric 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.

Aggregated Statistics

Cricmetric may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Cricmetric may monitor the comments on the blog posts or use spam screening software services to help identify spam comments. Cricmetric may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Cricmetric does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Cricmetric discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Cricmetric’s behalf or to provide services available at Cricmetric’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Cricmetric’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Cricmetric will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Cricmetric discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Cricmetric believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Cricmetric, third parties or the public at large. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via comments on blog posts), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Cricmetric takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
