The ChrisLawhorn.com site is committed to protecting the private information of our web site visitors. The ChrisLawhorn.com web site adheres to a strict policy for ensuring the privacy of personally identifiable information. Detailed here is the type of information collected from ChrisLawhorn.com, how that information may be used, and how that information is protected.
I. WHICH SITES ARE COVERED BY THIS POLICY?
II. WHAT INFORMATION IS GATHERED?
The Site collects two types of information from visitors to the Site: (A) Personally Identifiable Information, and (B) Non-personally Identifiable Information (information such as IP Addresses and cookies, which allow for a better use of the Site). Uses of this information are discussed in Section III.
A. Personally Identifiable Information
The Site will not collect personally identifiable information from you, other than what you supply to us on a voluntary basis upon request. Personally identifiable information includes, but is not limited to, name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, and credit card information.
Registration for our website:
Our Site may at times require a free registration to access information and resources offered on our Site. A unique email address must be supplied to register.
Paid Products and Services:
The Site may charge fees for select products and services. To enable the purchase of these and other products, we collect your telephone number, e-mail address, address and credit card information.
Forums, Feedback and Content Submissions:
On some pages of the Site, you can submit content to be published, make community postings, comments, suggestions, and vote. We may collect name, address, and e-mail addresses in connection with these activities.
Your submission of others’ Personally Identifiable Information:
On some pages of the Site, you can submit information about other people. For example, you may submit a person’s name and email address to send an article. Additionally, you may purchase a gift online and submit the person’s name, address and telephone number for delivery. This information will only be used for the stated purpose.
Contests, Sweepstakes and Special Offers:
On occasion, we may collect personal information from users in connection with optional sweepstakes, contests or special offers. Such information will be used as indicated at the time of collection.
On occasion, we may collect personal information from users in connection with optional newsletters. Such information will be used to deliver these newsletters.
B. Non-personally Identifiable Information
In addition to information that you provide to us, we may also collect and store certain non-personally identifiable information automatically when using the Site. This information helps us improve the experience you and other visitors have with the Site.
For example, we may collect your IP address, browser information and reference site domain, as well as related information such as the date on which you visit the Site. This information does not identify you personally and is only used in the aggregate.
As is common practice among web sites, we use “cookies” and similar technologies. Cookies are text files which store your preferences. No personal information is ever stored in a Chris Lawhorn cookie, even if you have entered your name or email address on other parts of the Site.
You can generally prevent cookies from being used by changing the settings in your web browser, but please be aware that by doing so you may be unable to fully utilize the Site.
C. Do Not Track (DNT) Compliance
The Site’s response to DNT browser mechanisms is untested. To that end, users should assume that information is being collected as outlined above.
III. ONCE GATHERED, HOW IS THE SITE’S INFORMATION USED?
Except as expressly set forth in our policies, non-personally identifiable information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses. We will not willfully sell, rent, swap, or disclose your personally identifiable information to any third party without first receiving your permission.
We may use the information we collect in a variety of ways:
* To personalize user’s experience and to allow us to deliver the type of content and product offerings in which you are most interested.
* To improve our website in order to better serve you.
* To allow us to better service you in responding to your customer service requests.
* To administer a contest, promotion, survey or other site feature.
* To quickly process your transactions.
* To ask for ratings and reviews of services or products
* To follow up with them after correspondence (live chat, email or phone inquiries)
In certain cases, other companies are contracted to provide services on our behalf. These service providers may maintain customer databases which may hold Site users’ e-mail addresses, including:
* Site visitors who have provided them to Chris Lawhorn by registering at our Site or signing up for a newsletter;
* Online buyers who make a purchase.
We (which includes our service providers) will use these addresses to respond to the general purposes for which we collected the information, to provide services and to operate the Site, including to respond to inquiries, to process credit card payments and billing, shipping, e-mail distribution, list processing and analysis, promotions management, to send information about the Site, programs, services, membership or to correspond about a purchase or product offers.
Our service providers have access to your personally identifiable information as necessary to provide certain services on our behalf. They are required to maintain the privacy of all such information in their possession or control and can only use the information on our behalf for the purpose that we have contracted them, for example processing your order or sending you a series newsletter. They are not authorized to use your information for any other purpose.
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third-party products or services on our website. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.
We have implemented the following:
* Remarketing with Google AdSense
* Google Display Network Impression Reporting
* Demographics and Interests Reporting
* DoubleClick Platform Integration
We along with third-party vendors, such as Google use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) or other third-party identifiers together to compile data regarding user interactions with ad impressions and other ad service functions as they relate to our website.
Users can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Settings page. Alternatively, you can opt out by visiting the Network Advertising initiative opt out page or permanently using the Google Analytics Opt Out Browser add on.
We, or our service providers, may release personal identification information if we believe in good faith that the law or legal process requires it, we have received a valid administrative request from a law enforcement agency, or such release is necessary to protect anyone’s rights, property or safety.
On certain pages, we offer visitors the opportunity to provide comments or other user-generated content on blogs and articles. Any information that you disclose when posting a message to these areas, along with the screen name or ID used, becomes public. In addition, the information that you disclose in these areas may be used by us for promotional and marketing purposes. We are not responsible for any personally identifiable information that you choose to disclose in these public areas.
When making a purchase from one of the sites to which ChrisLawhorn.com is linked, a visitor’s information may be used to verify that ChrisLawhorn.com was the source of the visit–in the event that a commission is due.
We offer several newsletters. If you no longer wish to receive a specific newsletter, you may opt out by following the “unsubscribe” instructions located near the bottom of each newsletter.
IV. HOW CAN I ACCESS OR CORRECT INFORMATION?
Access to personally identifiable information that is collected from our Site may be accessible for a limited period of time from the point of collection, such as where a user provides an e-mail address in order to receive an e-mail newsletter or a reminder about an upcoming program or event. In other cases, personally identifiable information may be maintained, edited and deleted at the user’s discretion at any time after the information has been submitted to the Site.
