Website Visitors

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

LearnScripture.net may also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for anonymous users. LearnScripture.net only discloses logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to LearnScripture.net choose to interact with LearnScripture.net in ways that require LearnScripture.net to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that LearnScripture.net gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. To visit the site or to use on a limited 'guest' account, no information is required. In order for data to be remembered permanently and to use features such as score boards and creation of verse sets, we require an email address.

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