Darien McGuire (“us”, “we”, or “our”) operates the darienmcguire.com website (the “Service” or “website”).
Your privacy is very important to us. At darienmcguire.com we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.) We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights. We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
We use your data to provide and improve the Service. By using the Service, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.
Like most website operators, Darien McGuire 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. Darien McGuire’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use the website/service. From time to time, Darien McGuire may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Darien McGuire also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Darien McGuire 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 darienmcguire.com choose to interact with the Service in ways that require the Service to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Darien McGuire gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we may ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. For those who wish to receive updates via email, we collect their email addresses. In each case, Darien McGuire collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the Service. Darien McGuire 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.
Darien McGuire may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, Darien McGuire may monitor the most popular pages on the darienmcguire.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Darien McGuire’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

We primarily use our website/blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. Darien McGuire takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
