Your privacy is very important to us at Johnson Publishers ("The Company"). We operate several websites, including theunksippablehook.com and themirrormessage.com, and we have a few fundamental principles that guide our data collection and handling practices:
Like many websites, we collect certain non-personally identifying information from our visitors, such as the type of browser and language preference. This information is used to understand how our visitors use our websites and to improve the user experience. We may also release this information in the aggregate, for example by publishing reports on website usage trends.
In some cases, we may also collect potentially personally identifying information, such as IP addresses, from logged in users and users who leave comments on our blogs. The IP addresses of logged in users and commenters are only shared in the same circumstances as personally identifying information (as described below). For commenters, the IP address is visible to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Collection of Personally Identifying Information
In certain cases, visitors may choose to interact with us in ways that require us to collect personally identifying information. The amount and type of information collected depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we may ask visitors who leave comments on our blog to provide a username and email address. We may also collect email addresses from visitors who opt in to receive updates from us. We only collect such information as necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with us. If you do not want to provide personally identifying information, you may not be able to engage in certain activities on our websites.
We may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to our websites. For instance, we may track the most popular pages on our site or use spam screening services to identify spam. We may share this information publicly or with third parties, but we do not disclose personally identifying information except as described below.
Protection of Personally Identifying Information
We disclose potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information only to our employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations who need to know the information in order to process it on our behalf or provide services available on our websites. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be located outside of your home country. By using our websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
We will not rent or sell potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information to any third party. However, we may share this information with third parties to comply with legal requirements, to protect our rights, or to prevent harm to others.
