Information We Collect
Like most website operators, The Tōk Case 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 Tōk Case’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The Tōk Case’s visitors use its website. From time to time, The Tōk Case may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
The Tōk Case also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. The Tōk Case only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, 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 Tōk Case website choose to interact with The Tōk Case in ways that require The Tōk Case to gather personally-identifying information, such as through leaving a comment on a blog post. The amount and type of information that The Tōk Case gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.
For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide their name, email address, and website. Those who wish to receive The Tōk Case updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, The Tōk Case collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Tōk Case.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using The Tōk Case’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Tōk Case will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.
Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, The Tōk Case discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when The Tōk Case believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The Tōk Case, third parties or the public at large.
