Effective Date: August 11, 2016
We collect certain information through our website, located at http://www.spottsfain.com. This policy explains how we collect and handle such information, including that which identifies an individual user or that could be used to contact or locate him or her ("Personally Identifiable Information" or "PII").
This policy applies only to our website and to the services provided through it and does not apply to any third party websites to which we link, any services we recommend, or any services we otherwise refer to on our website. Additionally, this policy does not apply to any other websites or services operated by us or to any of our offline activities.
We collect the following Personally Identifiable Information from users who choose to contact us via our website using the Connect page:
We collect the following Personally Identifiable Information from users who choose to comment on our blog posts through our website:
We collect the e-mail addresses of those users who choose to subscribe to our e-mail list through our Website.
In addition, we use Google Analytics to collect website usage information from all users. Google Analytics collects and stores data in an anonymized fashion that is not associated with individual users. Finally, we collect the following categories of information which are not tied to an individual user and which we do not consider PII:
We use your Personally Identifiable Information to communicate with you about services you have expressed an interest in and to promote our business through our e-mail list. If you choose to comment on one of our blog posts, your information will be displayed next to your comment and will be available to the public.
Information collected through Google Analytics is used to evaluate the use of our website, such as the time users spend at the site and the pages they visit most often.
We employ reasonable security measures to protect Personally Identifiable Information. Unfortunately, even with these measures, we cannot guarantee the security of PII. By using our website, you acknowledge and agree that we make no such guarantee, that you use our website at your own risk, and that you consent to our usage of PII as outlined in this policy.
Through the nature of the services they provide to us, the vendor which develops and hosts our website has access to PII, and may need to access it in certain scenarios.
We may disclose PII to attorneys, collection agencies, or government agencies to address contract violations or illegal behavior. We may also disclose PII in response to a court order or when we are otherwise required by law to do so. Finally, we may share PII in connection with a corporate transaction, such as a merger or a bankruptcy.
As noted above, we compile website usage data through Google Analytics. We may publish those statistics or share them with third parties, but they do not include PII.
Except as set forth in this policy, we do not otherwise share PII with third parties.
We may change this policy at any time by posting a new version on this page or on a successor page. The new version will become effective on the date it is posted, which will be listed at the top of the page as the new Effective Date.
