Like most website operators, Smoky Nation 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. Smoky Nation’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Smoky Nation’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Smoky Nation may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Smoky Nation also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on smokynation.com blogs/sites. Smoky Nation 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 Smoky Nation’s websites choose to interact with Smoky Nation in ways that require Smoky Nation to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Smoky Nation gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at smokynation.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Smoky Nation are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Smoky Nation collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Smoky Nation. Smoky Nation 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.
Smoky Nation may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Smoky Nation may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Smoky Nation does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Smoky Nation 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 Smoky Nation’s behalf or to provide services available at Smoky Nation’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 Smoky Nation’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Smoky Nation 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, Smoky Nation discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Smoky Nation believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Smoky Nation, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Smoky Nation website and have supplied your email address, Smoky Nation 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 Smoky Nation and our products. 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. Smoky Nation takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Smoky Nation, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Smoky Nation 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 Smoky Nation may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
