Updated privacy policy

as of June 20, 2009

All user data that is not made public, including email addresses and Ps associated with user accounts, will not be shared with outside parties for any reason unless compelled by law or where reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property, and well-being of OLPC. OLPC does keep machine logs but only for a time necessary to maintain the site. When a visitor requests or reads a page, or sends email to an OLPC server, no more information is collected than is typically collected by web sites.

OLPC believes that maintaining and preserving the privacy of user data is an important value. This Privacy Policy, together with other policies, resolutions, and actions by OLPC, represent a committed effort to safeguard the security of the limited user information that is collected and retained on our servers. Nevertheless, OLPC cannot guarantee that user information will remain private. We acknowledge that, in spite of our committed effort to protect private user information, determined individuals may still develop data-mining and other methods to uncover such information and disclose it. For this reason, OLPC can make no guarantee against unauthorized access to information provided in the course of using this website.
