The Ultimate VOA operates the website at theultimatevoa.com. It is our policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
We collect 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. The Ultimate VOA’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The Ultimate VOA’s visitors use its website. From time to time, The Ultimate VOA may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
The Ultimate VOA also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. The Ultimate VOA 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 The Ultimate VOA’s websites choose to interact with The Ultimate VOA in ways that require The Ultimate VOA to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Ultimate VOA gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive WPBeginner updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, The Ultimate VOA collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Ultimate VOA. The Ultimate VOA 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.
The Ultimate VOA may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, The Ultimate VOA may monitor the most popular pages on the list25.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. The Ultimate VOA may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, The Ultimate VOA does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

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

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. The Ultimate VOA takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
