Like most website operators, Refinery Ventures 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. Refinery Ventures’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Refinery Ventures’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Refinery Ventures may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Refinery Ventures also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://refinery.com blog posts.
