Like most website operators, Red and Black Cafe 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. Red and Black Cafe’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Red and Black Cafe’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Red and Black Cafe may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Red and Black Cafe also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blogs if available. Red and Black Cafe 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, when available, blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Red and Black Cafe may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Red and Black Cafe may monitor the most popular blogs or pages on the site. Red and Black Cafe may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Red and Black Cafe does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Red and Black Cafe will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Red and Black Cafe discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Red and Black Cafe believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Red and Black Cafe, third parties or the public at large.
