From time to time, UKBUSAS may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
UKBUSAS also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://ukbusas.org forum posts. UKBUSAS only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
