Your privacy is important to us. At Stupid Debates we have a few fundamental principles:
*We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.

Like most website operators, Stupid Debates 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. Stupid Debates purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Stupid Debates visitors use its website. From time to time, Stupid Debates may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Stupid Debates websites choose to interact with Stupid Debates in ways that require Stupid Debates to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Stupid Debates gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for the Stupid Debates Newsletter to provide an email address. Those who engage in contests, surveys, sweepstakes, giveaways, site registration, or use of public areas, such as a forum – for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal information required to process those interactions. In each case, Stupid Debates collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Stupid Debates. Stupid Debates 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.
Stupid Debates may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Stupid Debates may monitor the most popular articles on Stupiddebates.com. Stupid Debates may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Stupid Debates does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Stupid Debates websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Stupid Debates will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.

We primarily use Stupiddebates.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 website visitors. Stupid Debates takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
