Like most website operators, The Rebel Element 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.

The Rebel Element 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 commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

In each case, The Rebel Element collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Rebel Element. The Rebel Element does not disclose personally identifying information other than as described below.
