The CAMERA Project is committed to respecting the privacy of those who visit the CAMERA website, and of those who contribute materials to the project or participate in discussions administrated by the project. Please review the CAMERA privacy policy published below so that you can understand your options when using the CAMERA website and its services.

CAMERA is a not-for-profit project and does not engage in e-commerce. CAMERA does not sell or rent any information about its visitors or contributors to third parties, and we do not contact visitors or contributors to promote or sell any product.

What This Privacy Policy Covers

This privacy policy covers our treatment of personal information (such as first and last names, email address, a home or physical address, a telephone number, institution or affiliation) that the CAMERA Project may hold. You can visit the CAMERA website without identifying who you are, or revealing personally identifiable information. Certain services will only be available to registered users.

Any personal information CAMERA obtains about a contributor or visitor is information supplied voluntarily as part of using the website or signing up for a particular service or activity, or in requesting information from the CAMERA Project.

The CAMERA Project is not responsible for the privacy practices of other websites, services, or organizations to which a CAMERA webpage or service may link or refer.

Sharing of Information

The CAMERA Project only uses the personal information that you provide to support your activities within the CAMERA website and web-based services and to provide you information about CAMERA and related activities. Personal information about CAMERA contributors and visitors may be shared only with CAMERA contractors, auditors, consultants, staff, and collaborators. CAMERA informs those who receive your personal information that they are required to safeguard it. CAMERA requires them to use your personal information only for an authorized purpose consistent with this privacy policy, and to return it or destroy it upon completion of the activity.

CAMERA will disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal processes served to you, to the CAMERA Project, or the CAMERA website.

General Use of the CAMERA Website and Services

The CAMERA website and associated tools maintain raw log files of all activities on the website. Information extracted from these log files (such as the pages requested, referral URLs, estimation of time spent on a page, estimation of a user session, result sets from search queries) helps CAMERA gauge the effectiveness of its website and services, improve the performance and structure of its website and services, and generate general use statistics. CAMERA may share this type of information with its collaborators, sponsors, consultants, staff, and contractors to evaluate and improve the site.

Persistent Identifiers

In order to use some CAMERA services, you may be required to register and create a login identifier. These identifiers may link to personal information you supply as part of registering or signing up for a service. These identifiers will not be linked to general use information except where you have explicitly agreed to this action when signing up for the service (and where it may be a requirement to use the service), or when you have volunteered to participate in an evaluation study of CAMERA use.

IP Numbers and Domain Names

IP numbers and domain names are included in the raw log files and are used when computing aggregate statistics (e.g. as a basis for defining a use session.) These IP numbers are not used to link CAMERA use to any other personal information that CAMERA may hold.


The CAMERA website or service may use cookies to improve your interaction with the site or service. CAMERA does not use cookies to track visitors except in conjunction with a service that requires keeping track of a user's sessions, or actions, for example, a service allowing a user to keep certain features (such as the on-page glossary, navigation menus, etc.) turned on or off while moving from page to page on the CAMERA website.

CAMERA Discussion Forums and Email Lists

CAMERA will host and maintain a number of public email lists and forums . Some will be open for subscription and use; others will be moderated; that is, a list or forum moderator may limit subscription and posting access. In each case, you can subscribe and unsubscribe from these areas at any time.

Please note that any information that you post to a public bulletin board is available to all visitors accessing that site. Unsubscribing from a list or forum, or canceling your CAMERA website registration will not remove any name, email address or information that was part of any previous posting from any archive of these lists or forums.
