Your privacy is very important to me. At Learning To Bake I have a few fundamental principles that I follow:
- I won’t ask you for personal information unless I truly need it.
- I won’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop my products, or protect my rights.
- I won’t store personal information on my servers unless required for the on-going operation of my site.
Learning To Bake (“Learning To Bake”) operates several websites including learningtobake.info and viewfromthetrail.net. It is Learning To Bake’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information I may collect while operating my websites.
Like most website operators, Learning To Bake 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. Learning To Bake’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Learning To Bake’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Learning To Bake may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Learning To Bake also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on my blogs. Learning To Bake 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 Learning To Bake’s websites choose to interact with Learning To Bake in ways that require Learning To Bake to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Learning To Bake gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, I ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive Learning To Bake updates via email, I collect their emails. In each case, Learning To Bake collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Learning To Bake. Learning To Bake 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.
Learning To Bake may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Learning To Bake may monitor the most popular pages on the list25.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Learning To Bake may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Learning To Bake does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Learning To Bake 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 Learning To Bake’s behalf or to provide services available at Learning To Bake’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 Learning To Bake’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Learning To Bake 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, Learning To Bake discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Learning To Bake believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Learning To Bake, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Learning To Bake website and have supplied your email address, Learning To Bake 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 Learning To Bake 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. Learning To Bake takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Learning To Bake, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Learning To Bake 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 Learning To Bake may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
