Privacy Policy

(Effective as of April 7, 2016)

Welcome to caitlin-long.com (the “Site”) which is operated by Caitlin Long (“we” or “us”).  The following Privacy Policy tells you about the information we collect through the Site and in any other way. In addition, it explains how we use that information and how you can opt out of certain uses of information we may collect. By using our Site, providing your personal information and/or accessing our Site, you are consenting to the information collection and use practices described in this statement, as modified from time to time by us. If this Privacy Policy is not acceptable to you, please do not use this Site or provide your personal information. If we decide to materially change our Privacy Policy, we will post a new statement on our Site. Therefore, we encourage you to check the date of our Privacy Policy whenever you visit this Site for any updates or changes.

Information About You

We collect several types of information about you. We collect “personal information”, namely, your first and last name, and e-mail address.  We also collect “non-personal information,” which is information about you that does not itself identify you individually. Examples of non-personal information include age range and gender.  The following is a more detailed explanation of these types of information as well as when and how we collect and use them.

Mailing List

When you join our mailing list or our Site, we collect various kinds of personal information, including your first and last name, e-mail address, location, device type, and IP address.

Use of Your Personal and Non-Personal Information

Except as disclosed in this Privacy Policy, we do not sell, rent, lease or disclose information that identifies you individually or makes it possible for other parties to contact you directly without your consent. Unless we have your permission or are required by law, we only share your personal information with third parties who are acting on our behalf for the uses described below.  We may, however, use, sell, disclose or otherwise dispose of personal information we collect in the following circumstances:

Data Integrity

We process personal information for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with this Privacy Policy. We review our data collection, storage and processing practices to ensure that we only collect, store and process the personal information needed in connection with the uses set out in this Privacy Policy.

Internal Use of Your Information

We use all the information we have to help create and improve the Site for users. For example:

  • We will use your email address to make notifications to you about the Site, to contact you about the Site or our services.
  • We use information about you for statistical, design or operational purposes such as to estimate our audience size, to measure aggregate traffic patterns and/or to and understand demographics, customer interest, consumer insights, purchasing and other trends among our users and customers.
  • We also use your personal information for the marketing and/or promotion of us and the Site.
  • We use cookies and other similar technologies to deliver and improve our Site as set forth herein under “Tracking Tools”.
  • We may outsource all of these tasks to third parties on a confidential basis. If you do not want to receive promotional email or other materials from us or the third parties we have engaged, please unsubscribe when you receive an email or send your opt-out request to administrator@caitlin-long.com.

Disclosures to Comply with Legal Requirements

We may disclose personal information:
(a) to conform with the law, respond to claims or comply with legal process served on us (e.g., a lawful subpoena, warrant or court order);
(b) to enforce or apply our policies or agreements (including to initiate, render, bill and collect for amounts owed to us);
(c) to protect and defend our or our users’ rights or property, the Site, our employees, users or the public, including fraudulent, abusive or unlawful use of our Site; or
(d) if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury to any person requires disclosure of communications or justifies disclosure of records without delay.

Choice

We will not use or share your personal information in ways unrelated to the uses described above without first notifying you and offering a choice. We will also provide you the opportunity to opt-out at any time of certain or all contact from us. If you have any difficulty exercising your choices, please send your request to administrator@caitlin-long.com.

Company Sale

Information collected through our Site is considered a trade secret owned by us. As the owner of such information, we may disclose or sell such information as an asset of the company in conjunction with the sale to a third party of our company or a portion of our assets.

Aggregate Information

We collect aggregate information about you and your use of our Site whenever you visit our Site (See “Information About You” above). For instance, we may collect various forms of “click stream” information such as entry and exit points for our Site (i.e., referring URLs or domains), site traffic statistics, page views, impressions, and operating system and browser type. In addition, when you request pages on our Site, our servers automatically log your IP addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the internet.

This aggregate information generally will not identify you or be correlated to you individually for external purposes. We may collect, compile, store, publish, promote, report, sell, or otherwise disclose or use any and all aggregate information provided that such information does not reveal your identity. When we share such information with other companies, it is not traceable to any particular user, and will not be used to contact you. If we do correlate any aggregate information to you, such information will be treated like any other personal information under this statement.

Tracking Tools

We and our third-party vendors collect personal and other information about users over time and across different websites when you use this Site or the Sites offered on the Site. We use browser-based “cookies”, users’ IP addresses, and other technologies such as “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs,” or similar technologies to help us and third parties obtain information about your visits to the Site, deliver content for us and others specific to your interests, process your requests, and/or to analyze your visiting patterns, monitor traffic patterns on the Site, and to optimize and enhance your online experience on the Site. “Cookies” are pieces of information stored within your computer’s or device’s Internet browser that automatically identify your browser to our server whenever you interact with the Site. Such technology is a common feature of many web sites and is necessary in order for certain features of our site to function properly or in order to provide an online Site to you. We also use cookies to help us understand the content that you are shown while visiting our Site. We may combine information which we obtain through the use of cookies with other information, including a unique identifier we have assigned to you, or with information we obtain from third party sources.  Additionally, we use GoDaddy which may collect information; however, we do not collect any of this information and refer you to http://www.godaddy.com for further information and/or if you wish to opt out of GoDaddy’s use of the information it collects.

Managing Tracking Tools

You may customize the browser settings to notify you when a cookie is sent or to disable cookies altogether. Please check your browser for instructions on how to make these adjustments. Because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of the Site’s essential features, we recommend that you allow them on your browser. Your browser may also have a “Do Not Track” feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. These browser features are not uniform, so we are not currently set up to respond to those signals.

Children

Our Site is intended for a general audience. However, it is not designed nor intended to collect personal information from children under the age of 13. To respect the privacy of children and to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, children under the age of 13 are not permitted to use the Site. We ask that parents supervise their children while online.

Opting Out of Promotional Materials

As noted above, we may use your e-mail address and other contact information provided to us through the Site to send notifications to you. If you do not want to receive such notifications, you can change your privacy preference and remove yourself from our notification e-mail list at any time. Please email such requests to administrator@caitlin-long.com.

We strive to keep your personal information accurate. We will provide you with access to your personal information, including making reasonable efforts to provide you with online access to your subscription data so that you may review, update or correct your information on the Site. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting you access or enabling you to make corrections.

If you cannot access your information on the Site, please send your request to administrator@caitlin-long.com.  We may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, would be extremely impractical or for which access is not otherwise required.

Notwithstanding any preference that you select, we may contact you from time to time to provide for customer Site matters, such as responding to Site-related inquiries, updating our policies or notifying you of changes to the Site.
