This document applies to all websites and applications affiliated with Beyond Intractability and CRInfo (henceforth collectively referenced as BI/CRInfo), located at http://www.beyondintractability.org and http://www.crinfo.org (and including subdomains and subdirectories thereof).
General Information Collection
The BI/CRInfo servers automatically record certain information about site traffic (which may include Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser types, Internet service provider (ISP) information, referring pages and search engines, platform types, date/time stamps, and other data). This information is not further linked to any personally identifiable information; it is used by BI/CRInfo to analyze trends, administer the site, track users' movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. Additionally, BI/CRInfo utilizes Google Analytics, which independently records traffic using a modified version of the data described above (i.e. a segment of each user's IP address is deleted to further protect users' privacy).
Personally Identifiable Information
In order to request and maintain a user account, you will need to supply a valid e-mail address. This data is e-mailed to — and stored at the discretion of — the site operators ("Administrators"), and is also stored on the BI/CRInfo servers. All such storage may be maintained for an indefinite period of time.
The Administrators will not intentionally disclose your personally identifiable information to any third party without your prior consent, except when compelled to do so by law.
The Administrators will strive to ensure that the personally identifiable information that you privately provide to them (via user account request form, contact form, or any other mode that may be reasonably deemed "private") will not be accessible to anyone other than the Administrators without your prior consent.
Your username, as well as any material that you choose to publicly provide (e.g., by creating or editing a page for publication on BI/CRInfo, submitting a comment, editing your user profile, posting to the forum, or submitting information via any other mode that may not be reasonably deemed "private") may be accessible to the public, without regard for the presence (or lack) of personally identifiable information contained therein.
