Visitors

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

Summit Evergreen LLC also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Summit Evergreen LLC does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below. We may also collect and use IP addresses to block users who violated our Terms of Service.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Summit Evergreen LLC’s website choose to interact with Summit Evergreen LLC in ways that require Summit Evergreen LLC to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Summit Evergreen LLC gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.

Summit Evergreen LLC 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 Service-related activities.

Additionally, some interactions, such as posting a comment, may ask for optional personal information. For instance, when posting a comment, may provide a website that will be displayed along with a user’s name when the comment is displayed. Supplying such personal information is completely optional and is only displayed for the benefit and the convenience of the user.

If you are a registered user of the Service and have supplied your email address, Summit Evergreen LLC 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 Summit Evergreen LLC and our products. We primarily use our website and blog 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. Summit Evergreen LLC takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
