Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. At Elementary Inquiry, we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it, such as to improve the performance of our website(s) or to fulfil contracts with its users.
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information unless necessary for the on-going operation of our website and business.

It is Elementary Inquiry’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website(s).

Information Collected When You Visit Our Website(s)

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

Elementary Inquiry may also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Elementary Inquiry 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 blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Certain visitors to Elementary Inquiry’s websites choose to interact with Elementary Inquiry in ways that require Elementary Inquiry to gather personally-identifying information.

In each case, Elementary Inquiry collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Elementary Inquiry.
