Website Visitors

Like most website operators, kwbwritings.utopianrealms.org (KWB Writings) 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. KWB Writings’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how KWB Writings’s visitors use its website. From time to time, KWB Writings may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

KWB Writings also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. KWB Writings does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to KWB Writings’s websites choose to interact with KWB Writings in ways that require KWB Writings to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that KWB Writings gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, visitors may choose to comment on an article and are asked to provide a name and email address. In each case, KWB Writings collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with KWB Writings. KWB Writings 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

KWB Writings discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on KWB Writings’s behalf or to provide services available at KWB Writings’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using KWB Writings’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. KWB Writings 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, KWB Writings discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when KWB Writings believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of KWB Writings, third parties, or the public at large. If you have subscribed to an article on KWB Writings or subscribed to the latest articles and have supplied your email address, KWB Writings may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with KWB Writings. If you send us a request, such as via the contact form on KWB Writings, 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, unless you explicitly ask for the email to not be disclosed publicly. KWB Writings takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
