Privacy Policy



Your privacy is very important to us. Drumlummon Institute had 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 our site.

It is The Drumlummon Institute’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

The Drumlummon Institute 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. The Drumlummon Institute’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use our website.

The Drumlummon Institute also collects potentially personally identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. The Drumlummon Institute 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 are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally Identifying Information

Certain visitors to the The Drumlummon Institute website choose to interact with The Drumlummon Institute in ways that require The Drumlummon Institute to gather personally identifying information.
