Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to me. At AnaDouglas.com I have a few fundamental principles that I follow:

  • I don’t ask you for personal information unless I truly need it. (I can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • I don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop my products, or protect my rights.
  • I don’t store personal information on my servers unless required for the on-going operation of my site.

It is AnaDouglas.com’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information I may collect while operating my websites.

 

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, AnaDouglas.com 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. AnaDouglas.com’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how AnaDouglas.com’s visitors use its website. From time to time, AnaDouglas.com may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

AnaDouglas.com also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on my blogs. AnaDouglas.com 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 AnaDouglas.com’s websites choose to interact with AnaDouglas.com in ways that require AnaDouglas.com to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that AnaDouglas.com gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, I ask visitors who comment on my blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive AnaDouglas.com updates via email, I collect their email address and name. In each case, AnaDouglas.com collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with AnaDouglas.com. AnaDouglas.com 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.

 

Aggregated Statistics

AnaDouglas.com may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, AnaDouglas.com may monitor the most popular pages or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. AnaDouglas.com may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, AnaDouglas.com does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

 

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

AnaDouglas.com 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 AnaDouglas.com’s behalf or to provide services available at AnaDouglas.com’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 AnaDouglas.com’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. AnaDouglas.com 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, AnaDouglas.com discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when AnaDouglas.com believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of AnaDouglas.com, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an AnaDouglas.com website and have supplied your email address, AnaDouglas.com may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new blog articles, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with AnaDouglas.com and my products. If you send me a request (for example via email Ana@AnaDouglas.com or via one of my feedback mechanisms), I reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. AnaDouglas.com takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
