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


BUMBLEBEES also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. BUMBLEBEES does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.



Certain visitors to BUMBLEBEES’s website choose to interact with BUMBLEBEES in ways that require BUMBLEBEES to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that BUMBLEBEES gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, some visitors engage in transactions with BUMBLEBEES – by purchasing books or stories, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, BUMBLEBEES collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with BUMBLEBEES. BUMBLEBEES 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.



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



BUMBLEBEES 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 BUMBLEBEES’s behalf or to provide services available at BUMBLEBEES’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 BUMBLEBEES’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. BUMBLEBEES 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, BUMBLEBEES discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when BUMBLEBEES believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of BUMBLEBEES, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an BUMBLEBEES website and have supplied your email address, BUMBLEBEES 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 at BUMBLEBEES. We primarily use our website to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support 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. BUMBLEBEES takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
