Like most website operators, Putnam Holdings Network 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. Putnam Holdings Network’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Putnam Holdings Network’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Putnam Holdings Network may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Putnam Holdings Network also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on all blogs run by Putnam Holdings Network. Putnam Holdings Network 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

Those who engage in transactions with Putnam Holdings Network – for example, by purchasing services via the AlotNMore.com website – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Putnam Holdings Network collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Putnam Holdings Network. Putnam Holdings Network 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.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Putnam Holdings Network’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Putnam Holdings Network 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, Putnam Holdings Network discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Putnam Holdings Network believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Putnam Holdings Network, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Putnam Holdings Network website and have supplied your email address, Putnam Holdings Network may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, recommended / reviewed products and/or services, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Putnam Holdings Network 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. Putnam Holdings Network takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Putnam Holdings Network, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Putnam Holdings Network 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 acquiror of Putnam Holdings Network may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to our anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
