Like most website operators, Self & Living 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. Self & Living’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Self & Living’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Self & Living may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Self & Living also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Self & Living 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 Self & Living’s websites choose to interact with Self & Living in ways that require Self & Living to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Self & Living gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask the buyers to provide their name, email address, date of birth, billing and other information for the purpose of account creation and ability to make subsequent purchases on this online shop. In each case, Self & Living collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Self & Living. Self & Living 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.
Self & Living may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Self & Living may reveal how many downloads a particular file got, or say which lessons are most popular. However, Self & Living does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Self & Living 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 Self & Living’s behalf or to provide services available at Self & Living’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 Self & Living’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Self & Living 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, Self & Living discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Self & Living believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Self & Living, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Self & Living website and have supplied your email address, Self & Living 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 Self & Living and our products. 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. Self & Living takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
