The information we gather falls into two categories: 1) personal information you voluntarily supply when you register for an account or provide an email address to receive our newsletter, and 2) non-personal tracking information collected as you navigate through our site.
User Registration and NewsletterUsers are asked to submit a minimal amount of personal information (such as your name and email address) to establish an account with NewTalk.org. An account is necessary to submit User Comments, but NewTalk does not use the personal information provided for any purpose other than establishing the account.
NewTalk also collects email addresses from users and account holders when they subscribe to NewTalk’s periodic e-newsletter.
NewTalk may use the email address you supply to create an account and/or receive our e-newsletter to contact you in the future to keep you informed about our work. If you do not wish to receive further information from NewTalk, contact us at support@NewTalk.org.
We will not sell or transfer any personal information that you have provided us to any third party. However, we may disclose personal information if we are required to by law, or we believe that such action is necessary to (a) comply with the law or with legal process, (b) protect and defend our rights and property, (c) protect against misuse or unauthorized use of NewTalk.org site, or (d) protect the personal safety or property of our users or the public.
Please be aware that if you submit a User Comment containing personally identifiable information (such as your name or location), such information may be disclosed as part of your User Comment and become available to all readers of the User Comment section on NewTalk.org.
“Email this Page” FeatureNewTalk.org discussion pages include a link to “Email this page”, allowing users of the website to send an email to friends to inform them about a discussion they might be interested in reading. If you use this feature, we will ask you for your friend’s email address, which we will use only to send the page to your friend. We do not collect or retain your friend’s email address through this feature.

Traffic DataEach time a visitor comes to NewTalk.org, our servers collect some basic technical information, including, for example, the visitor’s domain name (e.g., whether the user is logged on from aol.com or whitehouse.gov). We also collect data about traffic on our website, such as the number and type of pages viewed by visitors to the website. We use the information to manage and improve NewTalk.org, and we may aggregate information about visitors and visits to monitor overall website activity. This general site activity information may be shared with third parties, but we will not disclose your individual identity or personally identifiable data without your permission. When we do present aggregated information to third parties, no one will be able to identify you or contact you from that information.
