Privacy Policy

Earth Composter operates EarthComposter.com and may operate other websites. It is Earth Composter’s policy to respect your privacy concerning any information we may collect while running our websites.

Website Visitors
Like most website operators, Earth Composter gathers 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. Earth Composter’s objective in gathering non-personally identifying information is to better realize how Earth Composter’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Earth Composter may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on tendencies in the usage of its website.

Earth Composter also gathers potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving feedback on EarthComposter.com blogs/sites. Earth Composter only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as explained below, except that commenter 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
Certain visitors to Earth Composter’s websites choose to interact with Earth Composter in ways that require Earth Composter to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Earth Composter gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at EarthComposter.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Earth Composter are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Earth Composter collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Earth Composter. Earth Composter 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.

Aggregated Statistics
Earth Composter may collect reports about the habits of visitors to its websites. Earth Composter may show this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Earth Composter does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Earth Composter 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 Earth Composter’s behalf or to provide services available at Earth Composter’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 Earth Composter’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Earth Composter 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, Earth Composter discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Earth Composter is convinced in good faith that disclosure is sensibly necessary to protect the property or rights of Earth Composter, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Earth Composter website and have supplied your email address, Earth Composter 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 Earth Composter and our products. If you send us a request (for example via 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. Earth Composter takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
