Polspam News ("Polspam News") operates polspam.org and may operate other websites. It is Polspam News' policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Polspam News 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. Polspam News' purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Polspam News' visitors use its website. From time to time, Polspam News may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Polspam News also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on polspam.org blogs/sites. Polspam News 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 commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Polspam News' websites choose to interact with Polspam News in ways that require Polspam News to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Polspam News gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at polspam.org to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Polspam News are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Polspam News collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Polspam News. Polspam News 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.
Polspam News may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Polspam News may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Polspam News does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Polspam News 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 Polspam News' behalf or to provide services available at Polspam News' 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 Polspam News' websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Polspam News 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, Polspam News discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Polspam News believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Polspam News, third parties or the public at large.

If you send us a request (for example via 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. Polspam News takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Polspam News, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Polspam News 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 acquirer of Polspam News may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Although most changes are likely to be minor, Polspam News may change its Privacy from time to time, and in Polspam News' sole discretion.
