Privacy Policy

Website Visitors

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


Hephzibah also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blogs. Hephzibah 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 blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Hephzibah’s websites choose to interact with Hephzibah in ways that require Hephzibah to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Hephzibah gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Hephzibah 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

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

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Hephzibah 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 Hephzibah’s behalf or to provide services available at Hephzibah’s websites, and (ii) that 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 Hephzibah’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Hephzibah 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, Hephzibah discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Hephzibah believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Hephzibah, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Hephzibah website and have supplied your email address, Hephzibah 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 Hephzibah and our products. 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. Hephzibah takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Hephzibah uses cookies to help Hephzibah identify and track visitors, their usage of Hephzibah website, and their website access preferences. Hephzibah visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Hephzibah’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Hephzibah’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Hephzibah, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Hephzibah goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Hephzibah may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
