We don’t need or collect a large amount of personal information from you in order for you to have a webcomic/blog on Interrupted Reality and even less if you only visit the various sites on Interrupted Reality. We will only ask for information that is truly needed. We don’t share your information with anyone except for legal reasons as described in the full version. For certain features we may store cookies on your computer. Ads shown on Interrupted Reality may also do the same. Setting a browser to disallow cookies may result in a loss of some functionality, but is perfectly fine with us.
Like most website operators, Interrupted Reality 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. Interrupted Reality’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Interrupted Reality’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Interrupted Reality may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Interrupted Reality also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on InterruptedReality.com webcomics/blogs. Interrupted Reality 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 are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the webcomic/blog where the comment was left.

For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a webcomic/blog at InterruptedReality.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Interrupted Reality – by donating for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Interrupted Reality collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Interrupted Reality. Interrupted Reality 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.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Interrupted Reality 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 Interrupted Reality’s behalf or to provide services available at Interrupted Reality’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 Interrupted Reality’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Interrupted Reality 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, Interrupted Reality discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Interrupted Reality believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Interrupted Reality, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Interrupted Reality website and have supplied your email address, Interrupted Reality 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 Interrupted Reality and our products. We primarily use other means (such as on InterruptedReality.com) 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. Interrupted Reality takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Interrupted Reality, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Interrupted Reality 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 acquiror of Interrupted Reality may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
