What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Our company collects the following data:
- Personal identification information (Name, email address, phone number, etc.)
Certain visitors to Niv’s websites choose to interact with Niv in ways that require Niv to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Niv gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive Niv updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Niv collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Niv. Niv 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.

Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Niv discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Niv believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Niv, third parties or the public at large.
