Privacy Statement for Google Hit Hider by Domain

Updated May 10, 2018

Overview

You probably realize this, but just in case you didn't, every time you contact a web server, it stores information about your request. This disclosure describes the information stored by my web server in relation to this part of the website and this script, and what I do with it.

Personal Information and Personal Data

Under the California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA), "personally identifiable information" (PII) refers to information collected online that individually identifies a consumer or allows the physical or online contacting of that individual. The law lists these identifiers: first and last name, a physical street address, an email address, a telephone number, and a Social Security number as examples of PII.

Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), "personal data" (PD) refers to information of an identifiable natural person. The regulation lists these identifiers: name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier, or one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of a natural person. According to Recital 30, "online identifier" may include an IP address or "cookie identifier" if it could be combined with other information received by a site operator to profile or identify a natural person.

File Retrieval and Logging

Every time a file is retrieved from my site, the web server records certain information in its log, including: the file requested; the date and time; the referring page address (if applicable); the browser identification string sent with your request; any cookies set by this site and returned with your request; and the IP address associated with your connection to my web server. None of this information is PII; neither your IP address nor any cookie constitute PD as I do not collect any data to connect it to you.

Script Installation Logging

The script uses the "JS" icon as a resource. When you first install the script, and when you install a new version, Greasemonkey, Tampermonkey, or Violentmonkey will retrieve the "JS" icon from this server. After installation, and during day-to-day use of the script, no information is sent to my web site. The next time you are likely to interact with my web site is when you update the script, or view updated images on a page describing the script. (When checking on the availability of updates, the updater requests information from openuserjs.org or greasyfork.org, not from my server.)

Google Analytics

I use Google Analytics (GA) to anonymously record statistics on pages viewed on this site. I instruct GA to anonymize your IP address so that no data recorded by GA can be identified to a particular person. (See Google's article "IP Anonymization in Analytics") GA uses an anonymous identifier (a random number plus a timestamp) to connect individual page views so I can more accurately count the number of unique visitors. This identifier is stored in a cookie used only by GA, not by me. If you opted-in to the GA cookie, you can opt-out using this link: Revoke GA Cookie Consent. If you would like to review your options again, you can click this link: Revise GA Cookie Consent. GA does not receive any data about retrievals of the "JS" icon.

Do Not Track

If your browser sends a "Do Not Track" signal (DNT), this site does not ask you to consent to a GA cookie. However, DNT does not affect web server logging or install logging.

Use and Storage of Log Information

This log information is used to check on server usage, detect problems serving files such as broken links, and to try to estimate the number of installations of the script by users of different browsers. Currently, the log information is stored indefinitely. However, I eventually will start to discard older information over time.

Email Addresses and Contact Methods

This site provides various contact email addresses for me, and links to sites that provide means for contacting me. Your use of email addresses or other methods of contact will be understood to indicate your consent to my receipt and use of data you send to me, including potentially your contact information. Your name, email address, and other information you send may be used to contact you now and in the future.

Other

This notice does not apply to any sites operated by others that you visit using links on this site. I may update this notice at any time, and the changed notice will be made available here. By using the site, you signify your acceptance of the revised terms. If you have any questions or suggestions about this notice, or believe it may have been violated, please write me at jscher2000@outlook.com, or contact me via the GreasyFork or OpenUserJS site.
