Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Well Rated 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. Well Rated’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Well Rated’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Well Rated may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Well Rated also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on the wellrated.co.uk website. Well Rated 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 and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the site where the comment was left.

In each case, Well Rated collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Well Rated. Well Rated 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.
