Buchanan County Amateur Radio Club, Inc (BCARC) operates this website. It is BCARCs policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, BCARC 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. BCARC’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use its website. From time to time, BCARC may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

BCARC also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on this site. BCARC 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 blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to BCARC’s websites choose to interact with BCARC.net 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. For example, we ask visitors who comment on this site to provide a name and email address. Those who engage in transactions with BCARC.net – by purchasing merchandise, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, BCARC collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with BCARC.net. BCARC 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.

We may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, we may monitor the most searched terms used to find this site, the browser and operating systems viewers use when accessing our site, and other non-identifying information. BCARC may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, BCARC does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

BCARC will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.
