Website visitors

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

LaTeX Base also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. LaTeX Base 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 LaTeX Base choose to interact with LaTeX Base in ways that require LaTeX Base to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that LaTeX Base gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask users who sign up for a premium account at LaTeX Base to provide an email address and password. In each case, LaTeX Base collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with LaTeX Base. LaTeX Base 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.

For instance, LaTeX Base may monitor how long it takes to compile documents on the LaTeX Base site. LaTeX Base may display this information publicly or provide it to others.
