Awakenetwork.org respects your right to the privacy of the personal information you provide us. Unless you designate otherwise or we state otherwise in this policy or at the time information is collected, any personal information you provide to awakenetwork.org will be known only to two parties: you and the staff of awakenetwork.org. Your user name will be available to other members for purposes of community participation. However, we will not disclose the fact of your membership by name to non-members without your permission, except in specific situations such as to law enforcement agencies as specified in this document.
Announcements and spam
At the time of registering for their membership, awakenetwork.org members may receive orientation emails from awakenetwork.org. From time to time, members may receive notification of new services, changes to policies or other relevant site adjustments. We will not send you other email at the address you provide, except for infrequent communications to resolve issues that may arise with your own awakenetwork.org account.
We will not sell, rent or give your email address to any third party. You are free at any time to substitute an alternate e-mail address if you wish to keep the one you initially registered private.
Each time a visitor comes to Awakenetwork.org's servers, including the shell host or our web sites, our servers — like most on the web — 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), referral data (e.g., we may record the address of the last URL a user visited prior to clicking through to an awkenetwork.org web site) and web browser and platform type (e.g., a Chrome browser on a Windows platform).
We also count, track and aggregate each visitor's activity into our analysis of general traffic flows at our sites (e.g. tracking where traffic comes from, how traffic differs within forums, etc.). To these ends, we may merge information about membership levels and activity into group data, which may then be shared on an aggregated basis with investors or the public; but we will not disclose your individual identity as an awakenetwork.org member nor discuss your personally identifiable data without your permission. When we do present any form of aggregated information to outside parties, no one will be able to identify you or contact you. We do not release aggregated data for individual awakenetwork.org online sanghas.
Awakenetwork.org members are expected to comply with our rules, but we cannot control third parties' use of information you may choose to provide via awakenetwork.org forums or your user home page, nor can we vouch for the integrity of the participants you may communicate with, including but not limited to participants in private forum areas. Sharing information with other awakenetwork.org members is a matter of individual choice and judgment. If you choose to take part in any of our forums, whatever you may disclose in those discussions is made known to others who may read the forum.
Our commitment to children's privacy
Protecting the privacy of the very young is important to us. For that reason, we do not collect or maintain information at our sites from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our sites are structured to attract anyone under 13.
Other disclosure of personal information
Cancellation and data removal policies
