Privacy Policy

The following describes the Privacy Policy for our website.

Your Privacy
Your privacy is important to us.  To better protect your privacy we
provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the
choices you can make about the way your information is collected and
used.  You agree to agree to these policies by virtue of using our
website in a way that leads to you providing us with personal
information.

State Law & Accompanying Rights
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.

Under our Terms of Service and Conditions of Use, children under 18 are not
allowed to use our website and access our services.  It is not our
intention to offer products or services to minors.

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.
