August Project respects the privacy of its Internet users and will protect that privacy as vigorously as possible.

August Project does not collect information that personally identifies individuals except when individuals provide such specific information on a voluntary basis. There may be occasions where specific personal information is requested before an individual can enter certain sections of a August Project site. For example, if registration is needed to comment on the August Project. This kind of registration helps us to ensure that content standards on these sections of the site are rigorously upheld.

In all such cases, August Project will collect only information that is voluntarily provided by the user and undertakes that such information will be kept strictly confidential. Individual information provided to August Project to gain access to any feature of a August Project site will not be sold or made available to a third party.

August Project does reserve the right, however, to perform statistical analyses of user behaviour and characteristics, in order to measure interest in and use of the various sections of its sites so as to improve design and navigation and to gather marketing information. Only aggregated data from these analyses, not individual data, will be used for this purpose.

As well, users should be aware that certain non-personal information and data may be automatically collected by August Project through the operation of what are called “cookies”. “Cookies” are small text files that identify an individual computer’s browser entering a web site. They allow the site to track that browser’s movement through the site over several sessions. Through cookies, a web site can recognize repeat users, facilitate the user’s access to and use of the site and allow a site to track usage behaviour that will allow content improvements. August Project uses cookies only for the above-mentioned purposes and will not use them to identify users or to track non-August Project usage.
