Runescape Bits and Bytes. ("RSBandB") operates a couple websites including rsbandb.com (and its sub-domains), and runewire.com. It is RSBandB’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, RSBandB 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. RSBandB’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how RSBandB’s visitors use its website. From time to time, RSBandB may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
RSBandB also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. RSBandB does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Certain visitors to RSBandB’s websites choose to interact with RSBandB in ways that require RSBandB to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that RSBandB gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at our site to provide a username and email address. Some of our other services may require the user to give additional details. In each case, RSBandB collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with RSBandB. RSBandB 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.
RSBandB may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, RSBandB may monitor the most popular posts on the runewire.com site to collect information about views. RSBandB may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, RSBandB does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
RSBandB discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on RSBandB’s behalf or to provide services available at RSBandB’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using RSBandB’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. RSBandB 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, RSBandB discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when RSBandB believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of RSBandB, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an RSBandB website and have supplied your email address, RSBandB may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with RSBandB and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs 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 users. RSBandB takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

These companies may use non-personally-identifying information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.
