Like most website operators, Diener & Associates 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. Diener & Associates’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Diener & Associates’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Diener & Associates may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Diener & Associates also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged-in users and for users leaving comments on diener.org blogs/sites. Diener & Associates only discloses logged-in user and commentor IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commentor IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Diener & Associates 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.
