Like most website operators, Mobile Ranger 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. Mobile Ranger’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Mobile Ranger’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Mobile Ranger may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Mobile Ranger also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments. Mobile Ranger 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 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 Mobile Ranger’s websites choose to interact with Mobile Ranger in ways that require Mobile Ranger to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Mobile Ranger gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for our e-mail bog subscription or our monthly newsletter to provide a username and email address. Mobile Ranger 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.
Mobile Ranger may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Mobile Ranger may monitor the most popular conversations and comments. Mobile Ranger may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Mobile Ranger does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Mobile Ranger 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 Mobile Ranger’s behalf or to provide services available at Mobile Ranger’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 Mobile Ranger’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Mobile Ranger 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, Mobile Ranger discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Mobile Ranger believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Mobile Ranger, third parties or the public at large. If you have supplied your email address, Mobile Ranger 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 Mobile Ranger and our products. We primarily use our website to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. Mobile Ranger takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Mobile Ranger, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Mobile Ranger goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Mobile Ranger may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. Mobile Ranger does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register with the service. If we become aware that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information. If you believe that a child has provided Mobile Ranger with personally identifiable information without the consent of his or her parent or guardian, please contact us at Julia@mobileranger.com.
You Have Control Over Your Information
You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information, in which case Mobile Ranger may not be able to provide certain services to you.
