Like most website operators, VW Bus and Camper 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. VW Bus and Camper’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how VW Bus and Camper’s visitors use its website.
From time to time, VW Bus and Camper may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
If you read the paragraphs following the title ‘Survey Results Aside: The Hard Data’, this is a perfect example of how we’ve used non-personally-identifying information in an aggregate.
VW Bus and Camper also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on VW Bus and Camper blogs. VW Bus and Camper 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 are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
One other exception is when a VW Bus and Camper giveaway is entered by a logged in user, the IP address of the entrant will be logged and available for the giveaway administrator to view with the intentions of using this information to help moderate giveaway entries. It’s common for sweepstakes promotions run by giveaway administrators to limit entries into their giveaways to one per household or per IP address, as an IP address might represent an individual household.
