Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. At Macon Community News we follow several principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law or develop our content when users submit content.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers.awesome

Website Visitors

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

Macon Community News also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for users to track potential malicious users and hacking attempts. We only disclose IP addresses under the same circumstances that we use and disclose personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to the Macon Community News website choose to interact in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who submit content on our website to provide a username and email address. In each case, Macon Community News collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with us. We do 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.

Aggregated Statistics
