Information Collected Automatically
When you visit the Site, certain information is collected automatically about your visit, such as the date and time of your visit, the pages you viewed, and the IP address from which you accessed the Site. The Skirball uses this information to learn about its visitors. However, no information that may identify you personally will be automatically collected.
The Skirball may also use "cookies" to learn certain information about you. Cookies are pieces of data that the Site transfers to your computer's hard drive. Cookies allow the Skirball to customize the information provided on the Site according to your preferences and make your visit easier and more enjoyable. Although a cookie cannot identify you, it can identify your computer. If you would prefer not to accept cookies from the Skirball, you may adjust your browser's options or preferences. You will still be able to have full use of the Site.
Limited Disclosure of Information
The Skirball may disclose user information in special cases when it has reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be intentionally or unintentionally causing injury to or interference with the Skirball's or a third party's rights or property. The Skirball may also disclose user information when the Skirball in good faith believes the disclosure to be required by law. Certain Skirball service providers may have access to your personal information, but their use of such information is bound by terms at least as restrictive as this policy. The Skirball may also share nonpersonal aggregate information about visitors to the Site.
The Skirball makes every effort to ensure that all transactions occurring on the Site will be secure. When credit card information is submitted via the internet to the Site, it is encrypted using "Secure Socket Layer" (SSL) encryption. SSL prevents your credit card information from being seen as it travels to the Site.

The Skirball does not solicit personal information from children on the Site and does not direct any marketing specifically for children. Visitors to the Site who are under thirteen years of age are reminded to obtain the approval of a parent or guardian before supplying any personal information to this Site specifically or over the web generally.
