Like most website operators, Tangled Bobbin 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.

Tangled Bobbin 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, Tangled Bobbin discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Tangled Bobbin believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Tangled Bobbin, third parties or the public at large.
