Our Privacy Practices
In the interest of full disclosure, transparency, and all that stuff, regarding privacy, I want you know that we're using some tracking software here, called Piwik.
What is tracked?
How does Inkscape Community use this info?
I never know the real name of any visitor, guest or member....unless their username is their real name, or they tell it to me via PM or email. In any case, the tracking cannot find out anyone's real name. The only reason I would ever do a whois search on an IP address (where I could possibly find someone's real name) would be if they were a security risk. All I ever know about guests, is what I've listed above. For members, the IP address is connected to the username (which is part of the forum, not the tracking software). But again, except in the case of a security issue, I will have no reason to dig into the IP address.
So, you can see that the kind of info we're gathering, isn't terribly personal. And of course I would hope that most people don't mind the tracking because the info is quite helpful in managing and administrating the site.
Opt Out of Tracking
But if you'd rather this info not be reported about your visits to Inkscape Community, please read, and check the box below, accordingly:
If you have any questions or comments about this, please feel free to post a message in the Website / Forum Issues and Announcements board. Or comment below.
