Website Visitors

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

Curator & Mule also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users on Curator & Mule pages. Curator & Mule 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 are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the Page where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Curator & Mule's websites choose to interact with Curator & Mule in ways that require Curator & Mule to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Curator & Mule gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a Page at Curator & Mule to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Curator & Mule are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions.
