Like most website operators, Mendes Investigation Services Ltd 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. Mendes Investigation Services Ltd's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Mendes Investigation Services Ltd's visitors use its website. From time to time, Mendes Investigation Services Ltd may release non-personally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g. by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Gathering of Personally Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Mendes Investigation Services Ltd's website choose to interact with Mendes Investigation Services Ltd in ways that require Mendes Investigation Services Ltd to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Mendes Investigation Services Ltd gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, through our contact forms in some cases we may ask for an email address, name, telephone number. In each case, Mendes Investigation Services Ltd collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Mendes Investigation Services Ltd. Mendes Investigation Services Ltd 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.
Mendes Investigation Services Ltd may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. For instance, Mendes Investigation Services Ltd may monitor the most popular pages on the Mendes Investigation Services Ltd site or use spam screened by our filters to help identify spam. Mendes Investigation Services Ltd may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Mendes Investigation Services Ltd does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
