  We consider "personal data" to mean any of:
  <ul>
    <li>
      information directly identified with you (such as name or email address)
    <li>
      several pieces of information that may identify you when combined (even if
      each piece individually does not)
    <li>
      any other data specific to an individual user when stored in combination
      with personal data

    With your consent, we may publicly display your name or alias along
    with information about your pledges and other activity in lists of project
    patrons or similar cases.

      <li>
        Whenever we receive legal requests for your data, we will notify you

        defenses or objections that you may have to a third party's request to
        disclose your data.
  <li>
    We otherwise only share your data with those employees, contractors, and
    service providers who have contractually promised to use it only for
    specified purposes in line with the rest of this privacy policy.
  <li>
    If our corporate structure or status changes (e.g., if we restructure, are
    acquired, or go bankrupt), we will notify all users so that you may choose
    to anonymize or delete your private data before we pass on any data to a
    successor or affiliate.

  free/libre/open forum program.

  Discourse tracks users in order to customize the experience, award badges,
  calculate a "trust level" for each user, provide stats about usage, and
  prevent spam.
<p>
  We make no use of this data outside of Discourse. Within available settings,
  we turn off unecessary tracking where we can. We also advocate at
