Like most website operators, The Agency List 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 Agency List's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The Agency List's visitors use its website. From time to time, The Agency List may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
The Agency List also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. The Agency List only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to The Agency List's websites choose to interact with The Agency List in ways that require The Agency List to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Agency List gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account to provide a username and email address. The Agency List collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with The Agency List. The Agency List 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.
The Agency List may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, The Agency List may monitor the most popular agencies or agency projects. The Agency List may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, The Agency List does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
The Agency List 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 The Agency List's behalf or to provide services available at The Agency List'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 The Agency List's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Agency List 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, The Agency List discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law (in response to a subpoena or court order), or when The Agency List believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The Agency List, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an The Agency List website and have supplied your email address, The Agency List may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with The Agency List and our products. We primarily use our site to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), 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. The Agency List takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
