What we collect
We collect log files, any information you submit on our contact form, and blog comments.
Like many other Web sites, bubowerks.io makes use of log files. These files merely logs visitors to the site – standard procedure for hosting companies and a part of hosting services’s analytics. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. This information is used to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses, and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable, unless you fill out our contact form, and we will only do that correlation in the event of a problem with the website or contact form.
We collect any information you voluntarily provide to us via our contact form. We recommend limiting how much information you provide in this form, and not using it for any sensitive information. We use the contact information you provide to contact you regarding the requested manner. You will not be added to any mailing lists. Any mailing lists that may be added in the future will be opt-in; in the mean time, we recommend you follow us on Twitter.
Anyone may comment on blog posts. If you wish to do so, you will be asked for your name, email address, and (optionally) website. This information will be correlated with your IP address and user agent, and used to moderate the comment. Such moderation may include the use of automated spam filtering services, who will use this information consistently with this policy. Your email address, IP address, and user agent will only be visible to BuboWerks staff and our anti-spam service. Your comment, name, and website (if provided) will be publicly visible. We encourage the use of any common pseudonym you may be known by online versus your real identity. If you have any private comments, please use our contact form.
Cookies and Web Beacons
We believe it is important to provide added protection for children online. We encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children to observe, participate in and/or monitor and guide their online activity. bubowerks.io does not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If a parent or guardian believes that bubowerks.io has in its database the personally-identifiable information of a child under the age of 13, please contact us immediately (using the contact in the first paragraph) and we will use our best efforts to promptly remove such information from our records.
Removal of information
While we do not collect very much information, if for some reason you would like any of it removed:
- For log files, please use our contact form and provide your IP address.
- For contact form information, please use our contact form and provide the contact info you provided previously.
- For blog comments, please use our contact form and provide the email address you provided previously.
Any use of the contact form to request information removal is subject to validation of good intent, for example if we have reason to suspect you have attacked our website, we will not honor the request to remove the log files. The contact form information from the removal will be removed as well upon completion.
Affiliate Privacy Policies
The BuboWerks website receives traffic from third party websites such as Google, Twitter, Microsoft (Bing), and LinkedIn. Those sites are responsible for their own, respective, privacy policies. BuboWerks may receive information in aggregated form from those sites; that data is not correlated with activity on the BuboWerks website.
