Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to me (“Robert Noakes”). I have a few fundamental principles that I follow:

  • I don’t ask you for personal information unless I truly need it.
  • I don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop my products, or protect my rights.
  • I don’t store personal information on my servers unless required for the on-going operation of my sites.

I operates several websites including Noakes Plugin (“This Website”) at It is my policy to respect your privacy regarding any information I may collect while operating my websites.

Website Visitors

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

This Website also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments. This Website 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 commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of This Website.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to This Website choose to interact with This Website in ways that require This Website to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that This Website gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, visitors who comment must provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive This Website’s updates via email must provide their email address. In each case, This Website collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with This Website. This Website 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.

Aggregated Statistics

This Website may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to This Website. For instance, This Website may monitor the most popular pages on the This Website or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. This Website may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, This Website does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

This Website discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on This Website’s behalf or to provide services available on This Website, and (ii) have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using This Website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. This Website will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, This Website discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when This Website believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of This Website, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of This Website and have supplied your email address, This Website may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with This Website. I primarily use This Website to communicate this type of information, so I expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), I reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. This Website takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
