Website Visitors: Like most website operators, KarenAndAndrew.com 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.

KarenAndAndrew.com also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. KarenAndAndrew.com 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 blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information: Certain visitors to KarenAndAndrew.com choose to interact with us in ways that require KarenAndAndrew.com to gather personally-identifying information.
