Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Rugby League Opinions we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  • In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

Below is our privacy policy, which incorporates these goals:

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.

It is Rugby League Opinions’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Rugby League Opinions 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. Rugby League Opinions’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Rugby League Opinions’ visitors use its website. From time to time, Rugby League Opinions may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Rugby League Opinions also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. Rugby League Opinions 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 blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Rugby League Opinions’ websites choose to interact with Rugby League Opinions in ways that require Rugby League Opinions to gather personally-identifying information.

Those who engage in transactions with Rugby League Opinions – by purchasing advertising, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Rugby League Opinions collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Rugby League Opinions. Rugby League Opinions 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.
