Your privacy is very important to us. Fundamental principles followed by the Bobby Nichols – Fiddlesticks Charity Foundation include:

The BNFCF website also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) for users leaving comments on our blogs. BNFCF only discloses commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to the BNFCF website choose to interact with BNFCF in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that BNFCF gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive BNFCF updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, BNFCF collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with BNFCF. We do 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.
BNFCF may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, BNFCF may monitor the most popular pages on our website site or use a service to screen and identify spam. BNFCF may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, BNFCF does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
BNFCF discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its contractors, volunteers and affiliated organizations that need to know that information in order to process it on our behalf or to provide services available at the BNFCF website. Contractors, volunteers and affiliated organizations have agreed not to disclose it to others. BNFCF will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its volunteers, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, BNFCF discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when BNFCF believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of BNFCF, third parties or the public at large. BNFCF takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
Comments and other content submitted to an anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
