This Privacy Policy covers all of the League Of Western Fortean Intermediatists' (”L.O.W.F.I.”) domains, subdomains, and the servers and networks which power them (”L.O.W.F.I. Site”) and all content, which may be updated by L.O.W.F.I. from time to time. L.O.W.F.I. will provide notice of any change to the Privacy Policy here.

Please read this statement carefully before accessing the L.O.W.F.I. Site. Your access to the L.O.W.F.I. Site indicates your agreement to abide by the Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy, please do not access or use the L.O.W.F.I. Site.

Information Collection

L.O.W.F.I. is the sole owner of the information collected and displayed on the L.O.W.F.I. Site. L.O.W.F.I. may collect information from our users at several different points on the L.O.W.F.I. Site.


In order to enhance their use of the L.O.W.F.I. Site, users can choose to post comments on particular articles of interest on our State blogs and perhaps elsewhere in future. To leave a comment, users must submit certain personal information, including a valid email address. L.O.W.F.I. uses this information to screen users who leave comments in violation of our Terms and will not disclose any readily identifiable personal information to any other organization.

Mailing List

L.O.W.F.I. may launch a mailing list for some or all of the L.O.W.F.I. Site. In the event L.O.W.F.I. does launch a mailing list, to sign up to receive regular emails from the L.O.W.F.I. Site mailing list, users must submit personal information, including a valid email address and demographic information such as location and interests. This information may be used in aggregate form only to assess general user interests in products and services. Users who subscribe to a mailing list will receive regular emails from the L.O.W.F.I. Site, including new articles and, possibly, emails from third party sponsors. If you do not wish to receive emails from sponsors, do not sign up for the mailing list.

Discussion Group and Cookies

L.O.W.F.I. may launch a discussion board service on some or all of the L.O.W.F.I. Site where users can discuss common topics of interest. Users will have the option of signing up for this service, and to do so must submit certain personal information, including a valid email address. L.O.W.F.I. uses this information to screen users who leave comments in violation of our Terms and will not disclose any readily identifiable personal information to any other organization.

The discussion board service may use cookies. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s computer tied to information about the user. We may use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. For the session ID cookie, once users close the browser, the cookie simply terminates. A persistent cookie is a small text file stored on the user’s hard drive for an extended period of time. Persistent cookies can be removed by following Internet browser help file directions.

By accepting a cookie from the L.O.W.F.I. Site, users will not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on the site’s discussion board. We store a cookie on each user’s machine that contains a username and encrypted password. You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or to notify you when a cookie is set. If you reject all cookies, you may not be able to use L.O.W.F.I. products or services that require you to sign in, and you may not be able to take full advantage of all offerings.


The L.O.W.F.I. Site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that L.O.W.F.I. is not responsible for the privacy and content policies of other sites. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected at the L.O.W.F.I. Site. Please use care in accessing other web sites.

Third Party Cookies

Some of our business partners may use cookies on our site (for example, advertisers). L.O.W.F.I. has no control over these cookies. This Privacy Policy covers use of cookies by L.O.W.F.I. only and not the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Third Party Advertising

The ads appearing on this Web site are delivered by third party providers such as Google®. Information about visits to this site, such as number of visits (but not username or any personal information), is used to select and display ads to users on this L.O.W.F.I. Site.

Log Files

Like most standard Web site servers, we use log files, including internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks. This information is used to analyze trends, administer the site, track aggregate movements of users, and gather demographic information. This information is not associated to personally identifiable information. We may use a tracking utility that uses log files to analyze user movement.

Legal Disclaimer

Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, L.O.W.F.I. may need to disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to respond to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process. L.O.W.F.I. also may disclose information about its users to law enforcement officers or others, in the good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our Terms and Privacy Policy, to respond to claims of violation of third party rights, and to protect property and personal safety.

Business Transitions

In the event L.O.W.F.I. goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or part of its assets, any or all L.O.W.F.I. data may be transferred to a third party.
