Massey Energy recognizes and respects the privacy of users of this Web Site. When you choose to provide us with information about yourself, Massey Energy will act in a responsible manner. Massey Energy may store and disclose personal information as allowed or required by applicable law, including making disclosures that are necessary or advisable to (a) protect the rights, safety or property of Massey Energy or others and (b) conform to legal or regulatory requirements. Without your express approval, however, Massey Energy will not trade, sell or rent your personal information but may collect and/or provide aggregate statistics about its Site and users to other parties. Massey Energy has no intention of collecting any personal data from individuals under 13 years of age. The only information we automatically collect is that related to the use of our web site. This information is anonymous and is gathered through our servers’ log files. These log files record generic information, such as the number of visits our web site receives, the types of browsers used and the number of files downloaded, but never personal information. This log file information allows us to create better content aimed at our viewer’s preferences.
When you view certain parts of the Site, information may be stored on your computer. This information will be in the form of a “Cookie” or similar file and will permit tailoring of the Web site to better match your interests and/or preferences. Cookies, by themselves, are not able to extract any personal information from you. This cookie automatically identifies your computer – but not you – to our servers when you visit our Site. Unless you specifically tell us, Massey Energy will never know who you are, even though we may assign your computer a cookie. Also, Massey Energy web sites can only read cookies created by Massey Energy web sites. Cookies allow us to personalize our Site for you and to provide you with information that fits your needs and desires. This Site, however, contains links to other Web sites and Massey Energy does not control the privacy policies of those sites. (See the section below on Linking.) This privacy statement only applies to information collected and maintained by Massey Energy.
