Website Visitors

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

Joanne Hedges also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Joanne Hedges does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
