Like most website operators, Alias Marketing and Design 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.

From time to time, Alias Marketing and Design may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

For security purposes Alias Marketing and Design also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Alias Marketing and Design 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.
