Your privacy is critically important to us. At Teacher Diane we have a few fundamental principles:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except 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 one of our services.
- In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.
If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Teacher Diane (“Teacher Diane”) operates http://www.teacherdiane.com. It is Teacher Diane’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
Like most website operators, Teacher Diane 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. Teacher Diane’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Teacher Diane’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Teacher Diane may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Teacher Diane also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on the blog. Teacher Diane 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 Teacher Diane’s websites choose to interact with Teacher Diane in ways that require Teacher Diane to gather personally-identifying information. In each case, Teacher Diane collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Teacher Diane. Teacher Diane 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.
Teacher Diane may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. However, Teacher Diane does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Teacher Diane 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 Teacher Diane’s behalf or to provide services available at Teacher Diane’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 Teacher Diane’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Teacher Diane 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, Teacher Diane discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Teacher Diane believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Teacher Diane, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the Teacher Diane website and have supplied your email address, Teacher Diane 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 Teacher Diane and our products. We primarily use our blog 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. Teacher Diane takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Teacher Diane, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Teacher Diane 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 Teacher Diane may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
