2. Collection of Information

We routinely collect non-personally-identifying information from website visitors, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use our website. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. We only disclose user IP addresses under the same circumstances that we use and disclose personally-identifying information as described below.

Certain visitors to our website may choose to interact with it in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction.

Those who engage in transactions with us by purchasing our services or products are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In these cases, we collect such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with us. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Some of these employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using our website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. We may also share limited personally-identifying information with other parties for the purpose of mutual marketing communications. Other than to our employees, contractors, affiliated organizations, and other parties as described above, we will disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order, or other authorized governmental request, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the safety, property, or rights of Chesapeake Shakespeare Company, third parties, or the public at large.
