Like most website operators, PortTechLA.org 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. PortTechLA.org's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how PortTechLA.org's visitors use its website. From time to time, PortTechLA.org may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
PortTechLA.org also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. PortTechLA.org does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to PortTechLA.org's website choose to interact with PortTechLA.org in ways that require PortTechLA.org to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that PortTechLA.org gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with PortTechLA.org are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, PortTechLA.org collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with PortTechLA.org. PortTechLA.org 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.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using PortTechLA.org's website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. PortTechLA.org will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.

We primarily use our various product blogs 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. PortTechLA.org takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
