Privacy Policy

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Cannonball 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. Cannonball’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Cannonball’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Cannonball may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Cannonball also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blogs. Cannonball 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 blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Cannonball’s websites choose to interact with Cannonball in ways that require Cannonball to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Cannonball gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Individuals or entities might be able to engage in transactions with Cannonball are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Cannonball collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Cannonball. Cannonball 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.

Given the international scope of the Operators websites, personal information may be visible to persons outside your country of residence, including to persons in countries that your own country’s privacy laws and regulations deem deficient in ensuring an adequate level of protection for such information. If you are unsure whether this Privacy Policy is in conflict with applicable local rules, you should not submit your information. If you are located within the European Union, you should note that your information will be transferred to the United States, which is deemed by the European Union to have inadequate data protection. Nevertheless, in accordance with local laws implementing European Union Directive 95/46/EC of 24 October 1995 (“EU Privacy Directive”) on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, individuals located in countries outside of the United States of America who submit personal information do thereby consent to the general use of such information as provided in this Privacy Policy and to its transfer to and/or storage in the United States of America.
