Like most website operators, Anthropology 4U 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. Anthropology 4U’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Anthropology 4U’s visitors use its website.
Anthropology 4U also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on http://www.anthropology4u.com/ blog posts. Anthropology 4U only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Anthropology 4U’s websites choose to interact with Anthropology 4U in ways that require Anthropology 4U to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Anthropology 4U gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, I ask visitors who sign up for a blog at http://www.anthropology4u.com/ to provide an email address.

Anthropology 4U 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, Anthropology 4U discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Anthropology 4U believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Anthropology 4U, third parties or the public at large.
