Privacy Policy

At we appreciate your readership and value your personal privacy. We respect the personal nature of the information you provide us on our website and acknowledge the importance of protecting this information.

At we collect information about our users in two main contexts: 1) when you share your e-mail address or register for access to the site, and 2) when you share personal information while posting comments on our stories. In addition to personal information, we may also collect information that is in no way personally identifiable. This may include the operating system you are working on, the Internet browser you are using, the domain name of your Internet service provider, and the websites you visit directly before and after your visit to

The e-mail address you provide will be used only for the purpose for which it was supplied by you and will never be shared with a third party without your permission. This also applies to any information that personally identifies you. The only exceptions to the foregoing are that we may disclose personally identifiable information 1) in response to legal process, for example, in response to a court order, 2) in response to a law enforcement agency’s request, or where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take actions regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of another person, violations of our terms of use, or as otherwise required by law, or 3) in the event we are acquired by or merged with another company.

We may use the non-personally identifiable information to improve the design and content of our website and to enable us to personalise your Internet experience. We may also use this information in aggregate form to analyse site usage. For example, we may want to know how long the average reader spends on our site or which pages get the most attention.

Any information you disclose voluntarily on our comments pages or in any forums we may develop in the future becomes public information. We cannot control the actions of our site users and advise you to use your discretion in sharing information about yourself on the Internet. All information sharing is optional and done so at your own risk. Privacy is a very personal matter and we encourage you to be careful and responsible when disclosing personal information online. If, at any time, you do not want to receive e-mail from us, please let us know by e-mailing us at

This privacy policy may be revised or updated at any time and we encourage you to check back often to ensure that you are familiar with the most recent version and the terms of our policy.
