Like most website operators, St. Paul 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. St. Paul’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how its visitors use its website. From time to time, St. Paul may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
St. Paul also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. St. Paul only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to St. Paul’s website choose to interact with St. Paul in ways that require St. Paul to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that St. Paul gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with St. Paul are asked for information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with St. Paul. St. Paul 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.
St. Paul may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, St. Paul may monitor the most frequently visited pages. St. Paul may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, St. Paul does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
St. Paul 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 St. Paul’s behalf or to provide services available at St. Paul’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. By using St. Paul’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. St. Paul 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, St. Paul discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when St. Paul believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of St. Paul, third parties or the public at large. If you are a user of the St. Paul website and have supplied your email address, St. Paul may occasionally send you an email to tell keep you up to date with what’s going on with St. Paul. We primarily use our “News” blog to communicate this type of information, so we 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), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. St. Paul takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
