Catchlights, Inc. (“Catchlights”) operates several websites including (but not limited to) SlideZip.com and BrandenWilliams.com. It is Catchlights’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Catchlights 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. Catchlights’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Catchlights’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Catchlights may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Catchlights also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and email addresses for individuals requesting zips. Catchlights 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 and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Certain visitors to Catchlights’s websites choose to interact with Catchlights in ways that require Catchlights to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Catchlights gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, individuals requesting a Zip must provide an email address to send the information. Those who engage in transactions with Catchlights – by purchasing access to the SlideZip service, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Catchlights collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Catchlights. Catchlights does not directly collect or store financial information used to process transactions. Catchlights 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.
Catchlights may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Catchlights may monitor the most popular zips on the SlideZip.com site. Catchlights may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Catchlights does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Catchlights 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 Catchlights’s behalf or to provide services available at Catchlights’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 Catchlights’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Catchlights 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, Catchlights discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request, or when Catchlights believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Catchlights, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Catchlights website and have supplied your email address, Catchlights 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 Catchlights and our products. 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. Catchlights takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Catchlights, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Catchlights 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 Catchlights may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
