What PII do we collect from people who visit our blog, website, or apps?
PII is only collected when it is provided voluntarily (and knowingly) by way of account registration, chat, or by submitting an inquiry from our contact forms – through which you will be able to choose which information you’d like to disclose. No PII is collected beyond what you provide.
Anonymous data / general usage data – such as your general location, operating system, device, browser type, screen resolution, referral sources, and similar, are collected solely for the purpose of website optimization / improvements to user experience, and analytics. There is no way for us to use this information to personally identify you.
How do we use your PII?
PII obtained is used strictly for the purposes for which it is submitted, which may include such things as:
- Personalizing user experience.
- Process your transactions.
- Periodic emails or follow-ups regarding inquiries, purchases, or products and services.
How do we protect visitor information?
Our website is scanned continually for security holes and known vulnerabilities in order to make your visit to our site as safe as possible.
Your PII is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.
All credit card transactions are processed securely through a third-party merchant services gateway. Under no circumstances do we keep sensitive data – such as credit card information, passwords, social security numbers, financial information, etc. – stored anywhere within our website.
Cookies may also be required for functionality purposes – such as user login / session management.
If you wish to disable cookies, you may do so from within your browser’s settings. For normal use of our website (general browsing), disabling cookies will not have an impact on experience. However, should you need to login to your account, you will need to have cookies enabled to prevent your browser from automatically logging you out, or preventing you from logging in altogether.
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer PII to outside parties for the sake of marketing, or any other reason (or for no reason), without advanced notice or consent to do so. This, however, excludes website hosting partners and other parties who directly provide services necessary to operating our website, conducting our business, or serve our clients. In all cases, those permitted access are required to adhere to the same standards by keeping PII confidential.
We reserve the right to release any and all anonymous data and/or PII if ever required by law / to comply with law enforcement in the event of a legal dispute.
Anonymous / non-identifying usage data and other general analytics may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
Your privacy is very important to us, and we take every reasonable measure to ensure we are transparent with our practices – and to protect you against prying eyes or malicious attacks. I
