The following outlines the information collected by our site, how it is used, and how you can change recorded information or have it discarded.

Collection of Non-personal Information

To measure website usage and to analyze ways to make our site more effective, we collect data about visitors to our website such as browser type, platform type, time and date of visit, and IP address (a number automatically assigned to your computer when you are using the Internet). The information collected is not personally identifiable. IP addresses we collect are not traced, pinged, or correlated to individuals. The non-personal information collected on halfaker.com is shared with third-party service providers who provide site usage analysis on our behalf.

Information Collected and Stored Automatically

If you visit our site to read or download information, we collect and store the following information about your visit:

  • The name of the Internet domain (for example, “xcompany.com” if you use a private Internet access account, or “yourschool.edu” if you are connecting from a university’s domain) and the IP address from which you access our site;
  • The type of browser and operating system used to access our site;
  • The date and time you access our site;
  • The Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our site; and
  • The pages you visit and the information you request.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that is stored on a computer when a user visits a website. Cookies stored on users’ computers are read upon subsequent visits to the website. Halfaker’s website uses cookies to establish and monitor the status of active sessions on our website and to track website usage.

Collection of Personally Identifiable Information

Certain visitors to halfaker.com choose to interact with us in ways that require the collection of personally identifiable information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, those who choose to contact us are asked to provide their name and email address. At the current time, downloading material from our website such as white papers does not require user registration; in the future access to such content might first require registration with our site, in which case name and email address (at a minimum) would also be collected. In all cases, we collect such information only as necessary or appropriate to fulfill the specific request or complete the action initiated by the visitor. Halfaker does not disclose personally identifiable information other than as described below.
