Information Sharing and Disclosure
Who we are
My website address is: http://tapdancingspiders.com.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Like most website operators, Bianca Smith collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Bianca Smith’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Bianca Smith’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Bianca Smith may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Bianca Smith also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Bianca Smith only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Bianca Smith’s websites choose to interact with Bianca Smith in ways that require Bianca Smith to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Bianca Smith gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive hashtag holidays via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Bianca Smith collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Bianca Smith. Bianca Smith does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Bianca Smith discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Bianca Smith’s behalf or to provide services available at Bianca Smith’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Bianca Smith’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Bianca Smith will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Bianca Smith discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Bianca Smith believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Bianca Smith, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Bianca Smith website and have supplied your email address, Bianca Smith may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Bianca Smith and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Bianca Smith takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Bianca Smith, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Bianca Smith goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Bianca Smith may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
