The Site’s server automatically records non-personally identifiable information that your browser sends when you visit the Site. This may include the URL through which you reached the Site, your IP address or that of your router, browser type and language, the page that you request, and the date and time of your visit. This log file information may be used by the Operator to analyze traffic at the Site in a general sense, but will not be made available to any third party or used in any other manner, except in the circumstances described in the third paragraph of this section. When you use the Services to comment, submit a post, or engage in any other activity for which the CMS software requires registration, you may be required to provide voluntarily such personally identifiable information as your email address and a user name.

In order to facilitate ease of use for visitors, we collect information that does not identify you personally, but rather identifies your computer or browser, through small files, called “cookies,” that the Services software can send to your browser for storage in your browsing device’s memory. They make your use of the Site easier by saving your status and preferences, and allow the software to recognize when you return to the Site.

Legal or governmental authorities may require the Operator to share your personal and/or non-personal information pursuant to judicial or governmental subpoenas, warrants or orders.

In addition, notwithstanding any term to the contrary in this Privacy Policy, we reserve the right to use and disclose your personal and non-personal information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of these Terms, or as otherwise required by law.

The Site contains links to third-party Web sites which may collect personal information: Unless expressly provided to the contrary, the collection and use of your personal information at any third-party site will be governed by the privacy policy applicable to that Web site. For example, the Site may contain advertisements generated by third-party Web sites that are tracking your activity through the use of their own cookies stored on your browsing device. This enables them to personalize the ads you may see on the Site. The Operator has no control over the presence or functions of these cookies placed by third-party Web sites.
