Drupal Watchdog diligently works to protect your information from unauthorized use. Your information is considered confidential both online and offline. We do not share any information with third-parties except as detailed below.

Drupal Watchdog strictly enforces email privacy and email addresses are never sold. Opt-in mailing lists are managed by Mailchimp (see below, under 3rd Party Collection and Use Of Information), but, beyond this, email addresses are never shared with third parties. We use email addresses to allow account management (such as password resets). Subscribers will receive email notifications when new or updated issues are available for download, and for updates to their order status. Users that have opted-in to newsletters and notifications will receive the email notifications they have opted into, and can “opt-out” of these notifications at any time by clicking the link included in the footer of every email.

Our web server automatically collects the IP addresses of visitors to our web sites. In addition, we collect aggregate tracking information derived mainly from tallying page views throughout our sites, and information volunteered by the visitor, such as survey information and/or site registrations. The information we collect is used to improve the content of our web pages and to customize the content and/or layout for each individual visitor.
We display self-hosted advertisements, collecting statistics about when and where the advertisements are viewed and by whom. Advertisers can view a sanitized version of this collected data.

We set cookies to enhance your browsing experience and to allow logins – no personally identifying information is stored in these cookies. We also set cookies for Google Analytics (see below).
