Privacy of Personal Information
Collection of Personal Information. We collect personal information about you, including personal information that you provide when you share a story, submit a letter or sign up to receive email alerts from this site. "Personal information" means any information that may be used to identify an individual, such as a name or email address.
Disclosure of Personal Information. We hire or are affiliated with other companies who provide services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of communications, hosting this Web site, delivery of content and services provided by this Web site, and performing statistical analysis. We may provide personal information to these companies to perform those services, but they will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of this information, and they are prohibited from using it for any other purpose.
Access to Personal Information. If, after providing information on this Web site, you decide that you do not want your Personal Information used for any purpose, you may disenroll from the list for ECBT by contacting us at the following address: [email protected].
Children's Personal Information. We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. Our Web site is intended for general audiences and we do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 13. If or when our Web site collects age information, and users identify themselves as under age 13, the site will block those users from providing personal information or registering as users of the Web site.
Our Practices with Respect to Non-Personal Information
We may collect other, non-personal information about your visit, including the pages you view, the links you click, and other actions taken in connection with your use of our Web site. We may also collect certain standard information that your browser sends to every Web site you visit, such as your Internet address, browser type and language, access times, and referring Web site address.
Aggregate Information. We may combine, in a non-identifiable format, the personal information you provide with the personal information of other users, to create aggregated data. We plan to analyze data of an aggregate nature, mainly to track group trends. We do not link aggregate user data with personal information, so aggregate data cannot be used to contact or identify you. We will use usernames instead of actual names to create aggregate data and to perform any analyses. Anonymous aggregated data may be provided to other companies we do business with, for statistical purposes and to track group trends.
