Your privacy is critically important to us. At Southeastern Data, LLC we have a few fundamental principles:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
- In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.
Southeastern Data operates several websites including www.SoutheasternData.com. It is Southeastern Data’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Southeastern Data 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. Southeastern Data’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Southeastern Data’s visitors use its website.
From time to time, Southeastern Data may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Southeastern Data also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Southeastern Data does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Southeastern Data’s websites choose to interact with Southeastern Data in ways that require Southeastern Data to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Southeastern Data gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, Southeastern Data collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Southeastern Data. Southeastern Data 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
Southeastern Data 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 Southeastern Data’s behalf or to provide services available at Southeastern Data’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 Southeastern Data’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Southeastern Data 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, Southeastern Data discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Southeastern Data believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Southeastern Data, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Southeastern Data website and have supplied your email address, Southeastern Data 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 Southeastern Data and our products.
