Introduction
The site editor takes your right to privacy seriously, and wants you to feel comfortable
using this web site. This privacy policy deals with personally-identifiable information
(referred to as “data” below) that may be collected by this site. This policy does not apply
to other entities that are not owned or controlled by the site editor, nor does it apply to
persons that are not employees or agents of the site editor, or that are not under the site
editor’s control. Please take time to read this site’s Terms of use.

1. Collection of data
Registration for an account on this site requires only a valid e-mail address and a user
name that has not been chosen already. You are not required to provide any other
information if you do not want to. Please be aware that the user name you choose, the email
address you provide and any other information you enter may render you personally
identifiable, and may possibly be displayed on this web site intentionally (depending on
choices you make during the registration process, or depending on the way in which the
site is configured) or unintentionally (subsequent to a successful act of intrusion by a
third party). As on many web sites, the site editor may also automatically receive general
information that is contained in server log files, such as your IP address, and cookie
information. Information about how advertising may be served on this site (if it is indeed
the site editor’s policy to display advertising) is set forth below.

2. Use of data
Data may be used to customize and improve your user experience on this site. Efforts will
be made to prevent your data being made available to third parties unless (i) provided for
otherwise in this Privacy Policy; (ii) your consent is obtained, such as when you choose to
opt-in or opt-out for the sharing of data; (iii) a service provided on our site requires
interaction with a third party, or is provided by a third party, such as an application service
provider; (iv) pursuant to legal action or law enforcement; (v) it is found that your use of
this site violates the site editor’s policy, terms of service, or other usage guidelines, or if it
is deemed reasonably necessary by the site editor to protect the site editor’s legal rights
and/or property; or (vi) this site is purchased by a third party, in which case that third
party will be able to use the data in the same manner as set forth in this policy. In the
event you choose to use links displayed on this web site to visit other web sites, you are
advised to read the privacy policies published on those sites.
