So here’s the deal….We don’t believe in data collection practices and while the benefits to the average bottom-line are measurably significant, we won’t go there. At what cost? B2B, fine. But for most of us living very personal lives that involve the internet, we are NOT going to contribute to the problem. We basicaly just don’t collect data. Full Stop.
We actually respect your privacy and are committed to protecting it.
Information You Voluntarily Submit to the Website: We may collect personal information from you such as your name or email address for direct communication purposes only. For example, you may voluntarily submit information to the Website by subscribing to a newsletter, or submitting a contact form.
Information We Collect from Others: None. We do not receive information about you from other sources. We are not about that life.
Automatically-Collected Information: Zero. We do not automatically collect any information about you and the device with which you access the Website. We will not log your IP address, operating system type, browser type, referring website, pages you viewed, and the dates/times when you accessed the Website. We do not use any analytics tools and will not collect information about actions you take when using the Website, such as links clicked.
Cookies: We never log information using cookies, which are small data files stored on your browser by the Website. We do not use either session cookies, which expire when you close your browser, or persistent cookies, which stay on your browser until deleted. Identification or information gathering at your expense disguised as Personalisation is unacceptable. It just is.
Though we aren’t gathering data for anything except simple direct communication, we would like to state the following ways (just so we are clear):
- To send you promotional information, such as newsletters. Each email promotion will provide information on how to opt-out of future mailings;
- To send you administrative communications, such as administrative emails, confirmation emails, technical notices, updates on policies, or security alerts;
- To respond to your inquiries;To provide you with user support;
We do not:
- To track and measure advertising on the Website;
Our Website will never share your information with third parties. However, the Website may use third-party service providers to service various aspects of the Website. Each third-party service provider’s use of your personal information is dictated by their respective privacy policies. As far as we can tell, (which is very far) we are not relying on any such services with Privacy Policies we don’t agree with.
Except when required by law, we will not sell, distribute, or reveal your email addresses or other personal information without your consent; however, we may disclose or transfer personal information collected through the Website to third parties who acquire all or a portion of our business, which may be the result of a merger, consolidation, or purchase of all or a portion of our assets, or in connection with any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding brought by or against us. HOWEVER, We will let you know well in advance of any such occurrence. Again, your privacy is as important to you as ours is to us… Very important!
We don’t agree with the idea of scraping data off each-other for our benefit—especially without consent. The whole situation makes us uneasy and seems shady at best, so we just don’t. No analytics, no metrics, no intrusion. Just no.
We may add add a single line to a cookie so we can remember you device as anonymously as possible in the effort to never show you the notice about cookies ever again. It’s little intrusive and annoying, but it's the world we live in...
On the Website, you may subscribe to our newsletter, which may be used for our own advertising purposes—never anyone else's. Any newsletters sent may contain a tracking method. The pixel is embedded in emails and allows an analysis of the success of online marketing campaigns. Because of these tracking methods, we may see if and when an email is opened, and which links within the email were clicked, but anonymously and in no way linked to your email or name. This allows the Website to adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of our users. This behavior will not be passed on to third parties.
