Types of Personally Identifying Information We Collect
Like most website operators, we collect (via our website) 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.
Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use our website.
We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. We do not use such information to identify our visitors, and do not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that we use and disclose personally-identifying information, as described above.
Certain visitors to this website choose to interact with us in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information like email address, first name, last name, etc. The amount and type of information that we gather depend on the nature of the interaction.
We collect such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with us. We do 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.
It is our policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
Protection of Personally Identifying Information
We disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of our employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that:
- need to know that information in order to process it on our behalf or to provide services available at our website, and
- 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 our website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
We will not trade, rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to our employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, we disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information, only when required to do so by law, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Sling & Stone, third parties or the public at large.
We have taken the necessary precautions to be in compliance with the California Online Privacy Protection Act, and therefore will not distribute your personal information to outside parties without your consent, except where specified above.
How We Use Your Personally Identifying Information
If you are a registered user of our website and have supplied your email address, we may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new videos or educational content you can access, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with us and in the industry.
We are committed to delivering the information we deem will be relevant and of benefit to you. We expect to keep this type of email to a minimum.
We take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
We may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to our website. We may display this information publicly but will not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described above.
