Privacy Policy:

Bow List ("Bow List") operates Bowlist.com and may operate other websites. It is Bow List's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

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

Bow List also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Bowlist.com blogs/sites. Bow List 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.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Bow List's websites choose to interact with Bow List in ways that require Bow List to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Bow List gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at Bowlist.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Bow List are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Bow List collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Bow List. Bow List 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.

Aggregated Statistics

Bow List may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Bow List may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Bow List does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Bow List discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Bow List's behalf or to provide services available at Bow List's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Bow List's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Bow List 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, Bow List discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Bow List believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Bow List, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Bow List website and have supplied your email address, Bow List may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Bow List and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Bow List takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Bow List visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Bow List's websites, with the drawback that certain features of Bow List's websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Bow List, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Bow List goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Bow List may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
