Like most website operators, Scoop It 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. Scoop It's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Scoop It's visitors use its website. From time to time, Scoop It may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Scoop It also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on http://scoopit.co.nz blogs/sites. Scoop It 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 blog/site where the comment was left.
Certain visitors to Scoop It's websites choose to interact with Scoop It in ways that require Scoop It to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Scoop It gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.

Those who engage in transactions with Scoop It are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Scoop It collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Scoop It. Scoop It 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.
Scoop It may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Scoop It may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Scoop It does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
