EASY-TO-READ SUMMARY

CraftYourContent.com and Elisa Doucette will make every reasonable effort to protect your privacy when you’re using our site. We ask that you do your best to help us help you by keeping your account secure.

Craft Your Content operates several websites, including http://www.CraftYourContent.com. It is Craft Your Content’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Marchative, doing business as Craft Your Content (“Craft Your Content”), 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. Craft Your Content’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Craft Your Content’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Craft Your Content may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Craft Your Content also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged-in users and for users leaving comments on our sites. Craft Your Content 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 are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Craft Your Content’s websites choose to interact with Craft Your Content in ways that require Craft Your Content to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Craft Your Content gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Craft Your Content are asked to provide additional information, including, as necessary, the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Craft Your Content collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Craft Your Content. Craft Your Content 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.

Aggregated Statistics

Craft Your Content may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Craft Your Content may monitor contributions to our site(s). Craft Your Content may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Craft Your Content does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Craft Your Content 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 Craft Your Content’s behalf or to provide services available at Craft Your Content’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 Craft Your Content’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Craft Your Content 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, Craft Your Content discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Craft Your Content believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Craft Your Content, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Craft Your Content website and have supplied your email address, Craft Your Content 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 Craft Your Content and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. 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. Craft Your Content takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
