Website Visitors

Hubbook encourages anonymity and has a mission to become free from all dependencies on third-party, proprietary software and infrastructure. Hubbook does not store any personally identifiable information unless it is hashed or encrypted. Hubbook does currently utilize certain third-party services and tools which may collect personally identifiable information such as IP addresses To improve your anonymity, Hubbook recommends the use of privacy tools and browsers such as Tor.

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

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Hubbook’ websites choose to interact with Hubbook in ways that require Hubbook to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Hubbook gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Hubbook are occasionally asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Hubbook collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Hubbook. Hubbook 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.
