WHAT INFORMATION I COLLECT ABOUT YOU
I collect two basic types of information from you in conjunction with your use of the Sites: (1) personal information, which is any information that individually identifies you (e.g., your name, email address) and (2) non-personal information, which is information that does not personally identify you but may include information about your interests, and use of the Sites. I collect this information in the following ways:
Information You Provide Directly To me:
I may ask you to provide your personal information, demographic information or information about your preferences or interests when you:
– Sign up to receive email newsletters from me
– Participate on social media accounts related to me
– Submit user generated content on any part of the Sites that permit it
– Knowingly volunteer information on any other part of the Sites
Information Collected Using Technology:
In addition to any information you provide directly to me, I and my third party service providers may use a variety of technologies that automatically collect certain non-personal information when you interact with the Sites or emails sent to you, including the following:
I may collect certain information about your computer or other device that you use to access the Sites, including IP address, geolocation information, unique device identifiers, browser type, browser language, and other transactional information.
I may log certain information about your use of the Sites (e.g., log files, clickstream data, a reading history of the pages you view, your search terms and search results) and additional “traffic data” (e.g., time of access, date of access, software crash reports, session identification number, access times, referring website addresses).
Cookies and Web Beacons
A “web beacon” (also known as an “action tag”, “tracer tag”, or “single-pixel GIF”) is an invisible graphic that is programmed only to collect non-personal information about your use of our Sites or emails sent to you. Web beacons may be used for a number of purposes, including counting visitors to the Sites, monitoring how users navigate the Sites, and counting how many emails were opened or how many links were viewed.
California Do Not Track Notice
Some browsers offer a “Do Not Track” feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. I do not respond to these “Do Not Track” signals. At this time, I do not track your personal information about your online activities over time and across third party websites. I also do not authorize third parties to collect any personal information from you on the Sites for these purposes.
HOW I USE YOUR INFORMATION
I may use your personal and non-personal information in the following ways:
– Communicate with you about changes to our policies
– Send you newsletters or special events by email
– Optimize or improve my Sites
– Detect, investigate, and prevent activities that may violate my policies or be illegal
– Perform statistical, demographic, and marketing analyses of users of my Sites and recipients of my emails, including browsing patterns
WHO I SHARE YOUR INFORMATION WITH
Third Party Service Providers
I have third party service providers that perform functions on my behalf, such as hosting, analytics, etc. These entities have access to your personal information only as needed to perform their functions and they are obligated to maintain the confidentiality and security of that personal information. They are obligated not to use, sell, distribute or alter this information in any way other than to provide the requested services to the Sites.
Other Third Parties When Required By Law or In Emergency Situations
I may also use or disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to applicable law or comply with legal process served on me or my Sites; (b) protect and defend my rights or property, the Sites or my users, and (c) act under emergency circumstances to protect the personal safety of me, my affiliates, agents, or the users of my Sites or the public.
My Sites may provide you with the ability to register, log into, “like” or otherwise interact with third party social media services, including, but not limited to, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, and other social media services. These features may enable integration and/or access to your social media accounts. I do not control these social media services or your profiles on these services, and I do not establish privacy settings or rules for how your personal information on these services will be used. If you choose to log on to or submit information through any of these social media services, your personal information will be subject to the applicable social media service’s terms and conditions and your current privacy settings on such social media service. By accessing any social media service, you will be assuming the risk that the personal information you provide on that service may be viewed and/or used by third parties for any purpose. You agree that I am not responsible for any acts or omissions by these social media service providers.
What Information I Collect and How I Use It
I do not require children to share any personal information in order to participate on this Site.
Under COPPA, you have the right to review and have any of your child’s information deleted from our records. You also have the right to tell me to stop collecting or using your child’s personal information. If you have questions concerning my information practices with respect to children, or if you would like to review, have deleted, or stop the further collection of your child’s personal information, you may email me at jonathanwhitewriter (at) gmail.com. For tips on protecting your child’s privacy online, please see the U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s brochure on this topic: www.onguardonline.gov.
SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
I take reasonable steps to help protect and secure your personal information. However, please remember that no data storage or data transmission over the Internet, or by other means, can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Thus, I cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to me. Therefore, you understand, acknowledge and agree that you transmit your personal information to my Sites at your own risk.
