If you choose to submit content for publication (e.g., a "letter to our editors"), we may publish your name, email address, and/or other information you have provided to us.
The information we collect in connection with our online forums and communities is used to provide an interactive experience. We use this information to facilitate participation in these online forums and communities and, in some occasions, to offer you products, programs, or services.

We will disclose information we maintain when required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We also may disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency's request.
Agents and contractors of American Cowboy who have access to personally identifiable information are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Notice.
