Gathering, Use and Disclosure of Non-Personally-Identifying Information
Users of the Website Generally
“ Non–Personally–Identifying Information” is information that, without the aid of additional information, cannot be directly associated with a specific person or entity. “ Personally–Identifying Information,” by contrast, is information such as a name or email address that, without more, can be directly associated with a specific person or entity.
Like most website operators, COMPANY gathers from users of the Website Non-Personally-Identifying Information of the sort that Web browsers, depending on their settings, may make available. That information includes the user’s Internet Protocol (“ IP”) address, operating system and browser type, and the locations of the Web pages the user views right before arriving at, while navigating and immediately after leaving the Website.
COMPANY analyzes Non–Personally–Identifying Information gathered from users of the Website to help COMPANY better understand how the Website is being used. By identifying patterns and trends in usage, COMPANY is able to better design the Website to improve users’ experiences, both in terms of content and ease of use. From time to time, COMPANY may also release the Non–Personally–Identifying Information gathered from Website users in the aggregate, such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Website.
A “ Web Cookie” is a string of information that a website stores on a user’s computer, and that the user’s browser provides to the website each time the user submits a query to the site. COMPANY uses Web Cookies to track the pages that users visit during each Website session, both to help COMPANY improve users’ experiences and to help COMPANY understand how the Website is being used.
As with other Non–Personally–Identifying Information gathered from users of the Website, COMPANY analyzes and discloses in aggregated form information gathered using Web Cookies, so as to help COMPANY, its partners and others better understand how the Website is being used. COMPANY does not attempt to link information gathered using Web Cookies to Personally-Identifying Information.
COMPANY USERS WHO DO NOT WISH TO HAVE WEB COOKIES PLACED ON THEIR COMPUTERS SHOULD SET THEIR BROWSERS TO REFUSE WEB COOKIES BEFORE ACCESSING THE WEBSITE, WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT CERTAIN FEATURES OF THE WEBSITE MAY NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY WITHOUT THE AID OF WEB COOKIES. WEBSITE USERS WHO REFUSE WEB COOKIES ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY RESULTING LOSS OF FUNCTIONALITY.
A “ Web Beacon” is an object that is embedded in a web page that is usually invisible to the user and allows website operators to check whether a user has viewed a particular web page. COMPANY may use Web Beacons on the Website to count users who have visited particular pages and to deliver co-branded services. Web Beacons are not used to access users’ Personally-Identifying Information; they are a technique COMPANY may use to compile aggregated statistics about Website usage. Web Beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the Web Beacon resides.
You may not decline Web Beacons, however, they can be rendered ineffective by declining all cookies or modifying your browser setting to notify you each time a cookie is tendered and permit you to accept or decline cookies on an individual basis. Third parties are not permitted to use Web Beacons on the Website.
Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personally–Identifying Information
As defined above, Personally-Identifying Information is information that can be directly associated with a specific person or entity. COMPANY collects a range of Personally-Identifying Information from and about Website users. Much of the Personally–Identifying Information collected by COMPANY about users is information provided by users themselves at the time they sign up to submit materials for a Website interactive program. That information includes each user’s name and contact information. The rest is information that users provide indirectly through their participation in Website.
Users of the Website are under no obligation to provide COMPANY with Personally–Identifying Information of any kind, with the caveat that a user’s refusal to do so may prevent the user from using certain Website features.
BY REGISTERING WITH THE WEBSITE, YOU CONSENT TO THE USE AND DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONALLY–IDENTIFYING INFORMATION AS DESCRIBED IN THIS “COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF PERSONALLY–IDENTIFYING INFORMATION” SECTION.
On-line Forums and Blogs
Certain Personally-Identifying Information collected from users is disclosed as a matter of course as a result of those users’ use of the Website. There are risks involved in dealing with strangers, underage persons or people acting under false pretenses. You assume all risks associated with dealing with other users with whom you come in contact through the Website. We expect that you will use caution and common sense when using the Website. USERS ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY LOSS OF PRIVACY OR OTHER HARM RESULTING FROM THEIR VOLUNTARY DISCLOSURE OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION.

- By Law or to Protect Rights - COMPANY discloses Personally–Identifying Information when required to do so by law, or in response to a subpoena or court order, or when COMPANY believes in its sole discretion that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of COMPANY, third parties or the public at large.
- Marketing Communications - If users opt-in to receive COMPANY marketing materials upon registration, COMPANY will email users about products and services that COMPANY believes may be of interest to them.

If a user wishes to opt-out of having their email information provided to third parties at any time after registration, they may do so by sending COMPANY an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Even after opting-out, a user may continue to receive marketing emails from third parties to whom COMPANY already has provided the user’s email information.
