Privacy Policy

It is NST's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors
Like most website operators, The National Shoes Travelers 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. NST’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how NST’s visitors use its website. From time to time, The National Shoes Travelers may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

The National Shoes Travelers also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on mynst.org blogs/sites. The National Shoes Travelers only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to NST’s websites choose to interact with The National Shoes Travelers in ways that require The National Shoes Travelers to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The National Shoes Travelers gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at mynst.org to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with The National Shoes Travelers are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, The National Shoes Travelers collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The National Shoes Travelers. The National Shoes Travelers 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.
