Except as described below, the IrishWhiteWater.com does not collect or require visitors to its Web sites to furnish personally-identifying information such as names, email addresses and phone numbers. Like most Web site operators, IrishWhiteWater.com does collect 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 date and time of each visitor request. IrishWhiteWater.com also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, which are non-personally-identifying in and of themselves but could be used in conjunction with other information to personally identify users.
IrishWhiteWater.com's purpose in collecting this information is to better understand how IrishWhiteWater.com's visitors use its Web sites. To that end, IrishWhiteWater.com may share potentially personally-identifying information with its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations. IrishWhiteWater.com may also release non-personally-identifying information about visitors, e.g. by publishing a report on Web site usage trends. Otherwise, IrishWhiteWater.com will not publicly release potentially personally-identifying information except under the same circumstances as IrishWhiteWater.com releases personally-identifying information. Those circumstances are explained in detail below.
Community MembersUsers are advised not to submit any sensitive information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, maps to buried treasure, etc, to Irishwhitwater.com.... Yaar.
Certain members of the IrishWhiteWater.com community (contributors, customers, etc.) choose to interact with IrishWhiteWater.com in ways that require IrishWhiteWater.com and others to know more about them. The amount and type of information that IrishWhiteWater.com gathers from those members depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, members who wish to post content to certain portions of IrishWhiteWater.com's Web sites are asked to provide usernames that identify that content as having been posted by a particular member. Developers, by comparison, are asked to provide contact information, up to and sometimes including telephone or fax numbers, so that they can be contacted as necessary. Customers of the IrishWhiteWater.com store are asked to provide even more information, including billing and shipping addresses and credit card or similar information. In each case, IrishWhiteWater.com collects personally-identifying information only insofar as is necessary to fulfill the purpose of the community member's interaction with IrishWhiteWater.com.
IrishWhiteWater.com is an open organization that believes in sharing as much information as possible about its products, its operations and its associations. Accordingly, community members should assume - as should most folks who interact with IrishWhiteWater.com - that any personally-identifying information provided to IrishWhiteWater.com will be made available to the public. There are three broad exceptions to that rule:
- IrishWhiteWater.com does not publicly release information gathered in connection with commercial transactions (i.e., transactions involving money), including transactions conducted through the IrishWhiteWater.com Store.
- IrishWhiteWater.com does not make publicly available information that is used to authenticate users the publication of which would compromise the security of IrishWhiteWater.com's Web sites (e.g., passwords).
- IrishWhiteWater.com does not make publicly available information that it specifically promises at the time of collection to maintain in confidence.
Outside those three contexts, users should assume that personally-identifying information provided through IrishWhiteWater.com's Web sites will be made available to the public.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using IrishWhiteWater.com's Web sites, you consent to the transfer of your information to them.
