Like most website operators, Ashland Bay 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. Ashland Bay's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Ashland Bay's visitors use its website. Ashland Bay never does not release any non-identifying personal information or information about the usage of its website.
Ashland Bay also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. Ashland Bay only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Ashland Bay's websites choose to interact with Ashland Bay in ways that require Ashland Bay to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Ashland Bay gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with Ashland Bay – by purchasing our products, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Ashland Bay collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Ashland Bay. Ashland Bay 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.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Ashland Bay's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Ashland Bay 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, Ashland Bay discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Ashland Bay believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Ashland Bay, third parties or the public at large.

We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. Ashland Bay takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
