At Witted Roots we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
We never ask you to provide us with personal information unless we truly need it.
We don’t share your personal information with anyone, except when necessary to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
We don’t store personal information on our servers, unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
It is Witted Roots’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our Website, or any other website we may have connected with our brand in the future for any purpose.
Like most website operators, Witted Roots 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. Witted Roots’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Witted Roots’ visitors use its website. From time to time, Witted Roots may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Witted Roots also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Witted Roots 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 Witted Roots’ websites choose to interact with Witted Roots in ways that require Witted Roots to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Witted Roots gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive Witted Roots updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Witted Roots collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Witted Roots. Witted Roots 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.
Witted Roots may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Witted Roots may monitor the most popular pages on the wittedroots.com site. Witted Roots may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Witted Roots does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Witted Roots 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 Witted Roots’ behalf or to provide services available at Witted Roots’ 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 Witted Roots’ websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Witted Roots 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, Witted Roots discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Witted Roots believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Witted Roots, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Witted Roots website and have supplied your email address, Witted Roots 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 Witted Roots and our products and services. We primarily use our various 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. Witted Roots takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Witted Roots, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Witted Roots 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 Witted Roots may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to any anti-spam service we utilize are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
