E DIY IDEAS ("E DIY IDEAS") operates ediyideas.com and may operate other websites. It is E DIY IDEAS's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, E DIY IDEAS 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. E DIY IDEAS's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how E DIY IDEAS's visitors use its website. From time to time, E DIY IDEAS may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
E DIY IDEAS also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on ediyideas.com blogs/sites. E DIY IDEAS 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.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

In each case, E DIY IDEAS collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with E DIY IDEAS. E DIY IDEAS does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
