Personally identifiable information provided by visitors (e.g., name, email or home address, etc.) will not be disclosed to any other party. If, at any time, SOWA believes it would be to the benefit of site visitors and contributors to share information with other organizations, visitors will be explicitly asked for permission to do so.
