DG Privacy Policy

Digital Greenville Inc. (“Digital Greenville”) operates several websites. It is Digital Greenville’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Digital Greenville 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. Digital Greenville’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Digital Greenville’s visitors use its websites.

Digital Greenville also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress  blogs. Digital Greenville 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.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Digital Greenville’s websites choose to interact with Digital Greenville in ways that require Digital Greenville to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Digital Greenville gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Digital Greenville collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Digital Greenville. Digital Greenville 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.

Digital Greenville 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, Digital Greenville discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Digital Greenville believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Digital Greenville, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Digital Greenville website and have supplied your email address, Digital Greenville 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 Digital Greenville and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support 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. Digital Greenville takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
