Your Rights Under State Law
Depending on which State you live in, you may have additional privacy rights. These may serve to strengthen any existing privacy rights that you hold under Federal law. We aim to always comply with the privacy policies of States in which we operate. If you would like to assert any privacy rights that come under your State, then please do get in touch with us directly.
Maintaining Children’s Privacy
Although everyone’s privacy is important, it is especially vital to uphold the privacy of children. Because of this, we will never knowingly collect or retain information about anyone under the age of 18, and our site is not explicitly intended for anyone below this age.
Collecting Personal Information
When someone accesses our website, their IP address may be logged, as well as the date and time at which they accessed the site. We only use this information to analyze usage of our site, see which pages visitors commonly view, and gain some general demographic information which we will solely use internally. Your IP address is not linked to any information that can identify you personally.
As with other websites, we may also collection additional information. This may include the page which linked you to our site, how long you spend on the site, and where you go after visiting our site, as well as the operating system and browser you are currently using. This data is used to improve users’ experience with our site.
There will be times when you directly provide us with information, such as filling out a form or posting a comment. You may be required to fill out personal information in these cases- if you don’t, then you will be unable to continue with your desired action.
One clear example of limited access to our site without entering personal information is where you are required to enter a name and password- people often choose personal information for one or both of these. You should make every effort to keep both your username and password private, and not share them with others.
Handling Your Information
You should be aware that any information you provide or disclose, such as in a blog post comment, is optional- and in that instance, we have no control over making said information public. Likewise, and information that you share with third parties linked to our site is outside of our control, and comes under that party’s privacy policies.
The main reason why we collect information from our users is to provide you with a better service.
We therefore will never share your personal information with others unless we have your explicit consent to do so. There may be cases when your information is stored by third parties, such as email service providers, but they will similarly be unable to use, sell, or transfer your information in any way without your permission.
You should note, though, that your information is part of a wider set of information drawn from all our users. We may share this aggregate information as a whole with third parties for our own purposes, but it will never include any information which is personally identifiable.
There may also be cases where we are legally required to relinquish personal information. These can include any illegal acts or potentially libellous allegations.
In these cases, we reserve the right to share information with applicable parties. We also reserve this right in cases where we need to protect our own copyright or intellectual property.
We know that not everyone will want their information used in this way. If you would like to opt out of Google’s advertising cookies, click here.
