Theinfidels.org strives to offer its visitors the many advantages of Internet technology and to provide an interactive and personalized experience. We may use Personally Identifiable Information (your name, e-mail address, street address, telephone number) subject to the terms of this privacy policy. Please note this policy applies only to information collected by Theinfidels.org and does not impact information collected or used by theinfidels.org through other means.

How we gather information from users.

How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided. You can visit many pages on our site without providing any information. Other pages may prompt you to provide information, such as when you register for access to portions of our site, sign up for membership, request certain features, make a contribution, or make a purchase. You may also provide information when you participate in sweepstakes and contests, voting and polling activities, message boards, and other interactive areas of our site.

Like most Web sites, theinfidels.org also collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to our visitors. For example, we may log the name of your Internet Service Provider or use "cookie" technology. Among other things, the cookie may store your user name and password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit. As we adopt additional technology, we may also gather information through other means. In certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but doing so may limit your ability to access certain portions of the site or may require you to re-enter your user name and password. Additionally, we may not be able to customize the site's features according to your preferences.

What we do with the information we collect.

We will use your information only as permitted by law. Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways. As one example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive. Even this Aggregated Information is not shared with others.

We also may collect information to enhance your visit and deliver more individualized content. For example, we may use Personally Identifiable Information collected on theinfidels.org to communicate with you regarding our Terms of Service and privacy policy, products and services offered by theinfidels.org, and other topics which we think you might find of interest. We do not share this information with others
