Certain personally identifiable data may be added to databases maintained by the RBWCL.

For some use data, we may direct you to particular Web Site pages, customize the Web Site pages you see, or otherwise increase the relevance of the information you access through the Web Site.

For information about Web Site pages visited, page hits per week, and the like, we use this information internally to improve the design of our Web Site pages.

The RBWCL may disclose information to protect our rights or property, to enforce our terms of use and legal notices, as required or permitted by law, or at the request of government regulators or other law enforcement officials and the courts (including the issuance of a valid subpoena).
