Like most website operators, Lambda 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. Lambda's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Lambda's visitors use its website. From time to time, Lambda may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Lambda also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Lambda posts. Lambda 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.
Certain visitors to Lambda's websites choose to interact with Lambda in ways that require Lambda to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Lambda gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account on http://lambdal.com to provide a username and email address. In each case, Lambda collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Lambda. Lambda 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 website-related activities.
Lambda may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Lambda may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Lambda does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Lambda discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Lambda's behalf or to provide services available at Lambda'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 Lambda's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Lambda 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, Lambda discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Lambda believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Lambda, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Lambda website and have supplied your email address, Lambda 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 Lambda and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs 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. Lambda takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
You can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to update, change, or request that we delete your personal information.
