Like most website operators, the VMM 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. The VMM’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how the VMM’s visitors use its website. From time to time, the VMM may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
The VMM also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://www.vmmcollections.com. The VMM only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
