Privacy Policy

My website address is: https://debsdevries.com.

We promise that the information you give to DebsdeVries.com and all information collected at this site will be kept strictly confidential and will not be sold, reused, rented, loaned, or otherwise disclosed.

A more detailed explanation about how we safeguard your personal information is described below. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email us:

We do not collect any personal information from users who browse our website. Users browse anonymously. We do analyze our website logs to collect aggregate data—such as the number of hits per page—and use this data to improve the value of the offerings available on our website. We also collect information voluntarily given to us by our registered customers (for instance, those in membership schemes) in certain protected registration or subscription areas of the site as well as the online store. This data is used for internal purposes only.

Our website logs are not personally identifiable, and we make no attempt to link them with the individuals that actually browse the site. We also track content usage and traffic on the site by using “cookies,” a feature of your browser. There is no personal data collected by the cookies. Instead, these software tags record information such as a user’s browser type and the specific sections that a user visited while on our site. Cookies don’t tell us who you are, your email address, or anything personal. You can choose, in your browser settings, not to accept cookies. If you choose not to accept cookies, you may not be able to view all areas of our website.

Some areas of our website may be password-protected. In other select areas, which may include free downloads, newsletter, or other offers, we may request that you provide us with basic information before granting you access to the area. If you choose not to register and provide this information, you can still use most of the site. However, you will not be able to access areas that require registration.

Please note that anything you post on our blog at DebsdeVries.com/blog is not protected. In addition, this site may contain links to other sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.

Cookies: We do not use persistent ID cookies on this site. We use session cookies on certain portions of the website. Session cookies expire when you close your browser.

For online purchases we also ask for your credit card number which will not be stored after use and verification.

We may ask for additional personal information when you provide feedback or comments, or otherwise communicate with us via our online forms.

We do not sell, rent, loan, trade, or lease the addresses on our list to anyone.

Third-Party Service Providers To DebsdeVries.com

Portions of the DebsdeVries.com site, including our shopping cart and webcast players, are operated by a third-party service provider or providers. These service providers may place session cookies on your computer. DebsdeVries.com service providers may also log standard technical information, such as the numerical Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using; the browser software you use and your operating system; the date and time you access our site; and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our site. Our service providers may also store and organize the personal information collected through this site on our behalf.

DebsdeVries.com also uses a third-party credit card processor and hosting providers.

For all of DebsdeVries.com service providers, hosting providers and credit card processors and any other providers we may use in the future, the information collected from DebsdeVries.com users remains under our control, and our agreement with each will require the information to be kept confidential and disclosed only to employees who require such access in the course of their assigned duties. JenniferHadley.com may change the specific third-party providers from time to time, and will transfer stored information to any new provider subject to similar restrictions and agreements. From time to time, DebsdeVries.com may work with third-party consultants or other service providers who may have access to personally identifiable information. In such cases, we will restrict their use of personally identifiable information in accordance with their assigned tasks.

The DebsdeVries.com site also provides links to a wide variety of third-party websites, including interactive links to sites like Twitter or Facebook. DebsdeVries.com is not responsible for, and does not have any control over, the privacy practices or the content of such third parties. We encourage users to read the privacy policies of any website visited via links from the DebsdeVries.com website.

We do occasionally allow our website to interact with other services, like social networking, mapping and video hosting websites. It is our policy not to include third-party resources when users initially load our web pages, but we may dynamically include them later after giving the user a chance to opt-in. If you believe a third-party resource is automatically loading, please let us know so we can address it.

Disclosure Of Your Information

While DebsdeVries.com endeavors to provide the highest level of protection for your information, we may disclose personally identifiable information about you to third parties in limited circumstances, including: (1) with your consent; or (2) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other judicial or administrative order.

If we are required by law to disclose the information that you have submitted, we will attempt to provide you with notice (unless we are prohibited) that a request for your information has been made in order to give you an opportunity to object to the disclosure. We will attempt to provide this notice by email, if you have given us an email address, or by postal mail if you have entered a postal address. If you do not challenge the disclosure request, we may be legally required to turn over your information.

In addition, we will independently object to requests for access to information about users of our site that we believe to be improper.

Updating Or Removing Your Information

You may choose to correct, update, or delete the membership information you have submitted to us by sending an email requesting changes to mailto:admin@debsdevries.com. Furthermore, if we inadvertently collect more personal information than intended, we endeavor to delete the extraneous information. However, please understand that deleted information may continue to persist on backup media.

 

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data
