Please understand that you may have additional  rights originating from State laws based on where you live.  These State-based rights may augment, strengthen, or otherwise somehow compliment any privacy rights you have inherently or under Federal law.  Our  policy is to comply fully with the privacy policies of every jurisdiction in  which we operate.  Accordingly, you are free to use our Contact information to reach us at any time to assert any State rights.

Our Commitment To Children’s  Privacy

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, our website will never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 18, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 18.

Collection of Personal Information

When visiting our website, the IP address used to access our website may be logged along with the dates and times of access. This information is purely used to analyze trends, administer our website, track users movement, and gather broad demographic information for internal use such as statistical assessments and website improvement. Most importantly, any recorded IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Other information may be collected as well, which  is rather typical of most websites.  For  instance, the source that referred you to our website is generally known.  Likewise, your duration on our website, and  your destination when you leave our website can also be tracked.  Other common data collected includes the type  of operating system the computer you are using to access our website has.  Similarly, the type of web browser is often  noted.  Again, this is common data  collection, and helps ultimately produce a better end-user experience.

Cookies are another common internet practice.  Cookies are a key means of improving user  experience by allows us to customize your use of our website.  Simple information is transferred to your  computer to allow the content and experience to reflect your actions, preferences, and so on.  You should simply make the assumption our website uses cookies, and note that you are free  to make adjustments in your web browser to disable these or otherwise receive  notification of cookies so you can take whatever desired action you so choose.  Please understand that refusing  cookies may cripple some of our website features and render some aspects  useless to you.

At times, you will be fully aware of information  received, as you are the direct source providing it.  For instance, you may comment on a blog post, reply to an email (whether broadcast message or autoresponder), provide an email address, complete a survey, requests SMS, or otherwise.  Likewise, purchases necessarily involve  collecting certain information, such as credit card information, Paypal  addresses, your physical address for billing and/or shipping, phone number, and  so on.  Refusing to provide some of this
information may lead to us being unable to provide you with the products or services you’ve requested.

A prime example of limited access to our website is  where content may be protected by a username and password.  Whether a username and password is generated  by our website, or created by you, these will almost always be connected with  some other information related to or connected with you.  This is true since much content that is  protected on the internet is subscription based, often paid for.  Thus, the username and password must  necessarily be tied to your other account data.   Usernames and passwords, by their very nature, should be kept  private.

Handling of Personal Information

Note that any personal information you provide to
others apart from us or our vendors is wholly optional.  As an example, you might disclose something  in a blog post comment.  That “private” information is now “public,” and we have no control over that.  In like fashion, you sharing information with  any other third party not functioning as a service provider to us puts that information beyond our control and becomes subject to the policy that party has  in place.

Our primary intention for collecting personal and  private information from you is simply to conduct our business.  We can use this internally to better serve  you.  Accordingly, we see no reason to  share your personal information to other parties and outside interests unless  you have authorized us to do so.  Of
course, there are instances where your information is stored with third party service providers, such as email service providers, as they provide services that are industry-leading in quality and security and are far more beneficial to our end user than attempting such services “in-house.”  However, you are never required to deal with  any such third party directly, they are limited in how they use your  information, and they cannot sell or transfer it to others in any way.

However, of course, your information does comprise
part of an overall whole.  This aggregate  of information, by contrast, may be used to understand our overall user  base.  Further, we may share this information about our website visitors as a whole, not individually, with third parties for various purposes, in our sole discretion.

While we are staunch privacy advocates, there are
times when even we may be forced to abandon these ideals.  Just as major search engines face ongoing  compulsion to provide data against their will, so too may the same occur with  our website.  Illegal activity or other serious acts or allegations could create legal liability for our website.  In those cases, we reserve the right to share  your information, or else may simply be compelled to do so by law.  On the other hand, there may be times when we would need to share your private information in order to protect our own interests.  For instance, in cases of  suspected or alleged copyright infringement or other intellectual property violations, it may be necessary to share personal information.
