Like most website operators, American Terracotta 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. American Terracotta’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how American Terracotta’s visitors use its website. From time to time, American Terracotta may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
American Terracotta also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on americanterracotta.com blogs/sites. American Terracotta 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 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

In each case, American Terracotta collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with American Terracotta. American Terracotta does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
