Like most website operators, CLT Blog 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. CLT Blog’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how CLT Blog’s visitors use its website. From time to time, CLT Blog may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
CLT Blog also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. CLT Blog does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Certain visitors to CLT Blog’s websites choose to interact with CLT Blog in ways that require CLT Blog to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that CLT Blog gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, visitors may choose to comment on an article and are asked to provide a name and email address. In each case, CLT Blog collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with CLT Blog. CLT Blog 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.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using CLT Blog’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. CLT Blog will not rent or sell personally-identifying and potentially personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, CLT Blog discloses personally-identifying and potentially personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when CLT Blog believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of CLT Blog, third parties, or the public at large.
