We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law.
We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Children of Artemis 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. Children of Artemis’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use its website. From time to time, Children of Artemis may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Children of Artemis also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our forums. Children of Artemis only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that forum commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the forum where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Children of Artemis’s websites choose to interact with Children of Artemis in ways that require Children of Artemis to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Children of Artemis gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our forum to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive Children of Artemis updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Children of Artemis collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Children of Artemis. Children of Artemis 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.

Children of Artemis may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Children of Artemis may monitor the most popular pages on the witchcraft.org site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Children of Artemis may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Children of Artemis NEVER discloses personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Children of Artemis’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

We primarily use our various Facebook groups, and web sites to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Children of Artemis takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
