Like most website operators, VESSEL 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. VESSEL’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how VESSEL’s visitors use its website. From time to time, VESSEL may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. VESSEL also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. VESSEL only discloses 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 VESSEL’s websites choose to interact with VESSEL in ways that require VESSEL to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that VESSEL gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a newsletter at http://www.vesseldesignoffice.com to provide an email address.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
