Your privacy is important. To better protect your privacy, this notice explains online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used by the site (owner). You agree to agree to these policies by virtue of using this website in a way that leads to you providing personal information.
Protecting the privacy of children is very important. For that reason, the owner of the website will never collect or maintain information from those who the owner knows is actually under 18, and no part of the website is structured to attract anyone under 18. Under the Terms and Conditions, children under 18 (or 21 depending on jurisdiction) are not allowed to access, view, or use the website or interact with what is displayed in any way, shape, or form. It is not the intention to offer anything to minors. When visiting this website, the IP address used to access the website may be logged along with the dates and times of access. This information is purely used to analyze trends, administer the website, track users movement, and gather broad demographic information for internal use such as statistical assessments and website improvement. Most importantly, any recorded IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Any personal information and personally identifying information the site [owner] collects in order to operate this website and provide the services herein, may be used by the site owner for marketing, promotional (i.e using pictures/videos/writings/content/etc. received from you in the gallery) and/or other business purposes, including but not limited to circumstances where the site owner chooses to address suspected ‘friendly fraud’ charge-backs with third party legal assistance or otherwise in the collection of an outstanding debt.
Other information may be collected as well, which is typical of most websites. For instance, the source that referred you to the website is generally known. Likewise, your duration on the website, and your destination when you leave the website can also be tracked. Other common data collected includes the type of operating system the computer you are using to access the website has. Similarly, the type of web browser is often noted. Again, this is common data collection, and helps ultimately produce a better end-user experience.
At times, you will be fully aware of information received, as you are the direct source providing it. For instance, you may comment on a blog post, reply to an email (whether broadcast message or auto-responder), provide an email address, complete a survey, requests SMS, or otherwise, etc. Likewise, tributes (payments) necessarily involve collecting certain information, such as credit card information, your physical address for billing and/or shipping, phone number, and so on. Refusing to provide some of this information may lead to the site owner being unable to provide you with the products or services you’ve requested.
A prime example of limited access to the website is where some content may be protected by a username and password. Whether a username and password is generated by the website, or created by you, these will almost always be connected with some other information related to or connected with you. This is true since much content that is protected on the internet is subscription based, often paid for. Thus, the username and password must necessarily be tied to your other account data. Usernames and passwords, by their very nature, should be kept private.
Note that any personal information you provide to others apart from the owner of this site is wholly optional. For example, you might disclose something in a blog post comment. That “private” information is now “public,” and the site owner has no control over that. In like fashion, you sharing information with any other third party not functioning as a service provider to this site puts that information beyond the site owners control and becomes subject to the policy that party has in place.
The primary intention for collecting personal and private information from you is simply to conduct business. This info can be used internally to better serve you. Accordingly, the site owner does not share your personal information to other parties and outside interests unless you have authorized otherwise. Of course, there are instances where your information is stored with third party service providers, such as email service providers, as they provide services that are industry-leading in quality and security and are far more beneficial. However, you are never required to deal with any such third party directly, they are limited in how they use your information, and they cannot sell or transfer it to others in any way.
However, of course, your information does comprise part of an overall whole. This aggregate of information, by contrast, may be used to understand the overall user base. Further, the site owner may share this information about the website visitors as a whole, not individually, with third parties for various purposes, in the site owners sole discretion.
While the site owner is all for privacy, there are times when the site owner may be forced to abandon these ideals. Just as major search engines face ongoing compulsion to provide data against their will, so too may the same occur with this website. Illegal activity or other serious acts or allegations could create legal liability for the website. In those cases, the site owner reserves the right to share your information, or else may simply be compelled to do so by law. On the other hand, there may be times when the site owner would need to share your private information in order to protect the sites interests. For instance, in cases of suspected or alleged copyright infringement or other intellectual property violations, it may be necessary to share personal information.
The site owner has included links on this website for your use and reference. The site owner is not responsible for the privacy policies on these websites. You should be aware that the privacy policies of these websites may differ from this site.
