Website Visitors

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

The Leisure Time Group also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. The Leisure Time Group 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.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to The Leisure Time Group’s websites choose to interact with The Leisure Time Group in ways that require The Leisure Time Group to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Leisure Time Group gathers depend on the nature of the interaction.
