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

Myrtle Grace also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. Myrtle Grace 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 are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
