Like most website operators, we collect 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. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how website visitors use this website. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of this website.

Optionally, if you use the site’s Private Message system to send private messages to other site users, we store your message in our database along with the username of the recipient.

If you register an account with us, you must provide a password that you will use to login to your account on our website. Please use a unique password and do not use a password that you use with any other website, system or service. By providing us with a password, you confirm that we cannot be held liable for any damages caused by use of that password anywhere else.
Throughout this document, we use the term “comment” and “comments” to refer to any information that a logged-in site visitor uploads to the site, including but not limited to comments on news stories, blog posts, pictures, discography items, forum posts, and guest book posts. When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you contact us via our website’s Contact form, we collect your name, email address and any other information you enter into that form. We use this information to respond to your inquiry and we may store that information until you ask us to delete it. We do not use information supplied on the contact form for marketing purposes.
Embedded content from other websites
Our Apache web server keeps log files that track the requests your browser makes for pages, images and other website assets. It stores the IP address from which each request was made. We use website analytics software packages to analyze these log files to understand how this site is being accessed and to help us improve it. At various times we have used, and may in the future use, Google Analytics, Webalizer, AWStats, and Analog to analyze these log files. The statistics provided by these analytics packages are aggregated and to the extent that they do not contain personally-identifiable information, may be shared with others to understand website traffic.
Who we share your data with
We disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of our employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on our behalf or to provide services available at Hittin’ The Web Group’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Hittin’ The Web Group’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Hittin’ The Web Group 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, Hittin’ The Web Group discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Hittin’ The Web Group believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Hittin’ The Web Group, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Hittin’ The Web Group website and have supplied your email address, Hittin’ The Web Group 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 Hittin’ The Web Group and our products.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. We may use this to recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. For users that register on our website or subscribe to our newsletter, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information. This information is stored indefinitely unless you ask us to delete it.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. You may request deletion, rectification, or access to your data, by emailing email@example.com specifying any action you wish us to take, or by using the Personal Data Management page at https://www.allmanbrothersband.com/blog/pdm/
