Your privacy is critically important to us. At Stickler Editing 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.
Stickler Editing (“Stickler Editing”) operates this website. It is Stickler Editing’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
Like most website operators, Stickler Editing 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, and may also make use of Google site stats (learn more). Stickler Editing’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Stickler Editing’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Stickler Editing may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Stickler Editing also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on SticklerEditing.com blogs or articles. Stickler Editing 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 Stickler Editing’s websites choose to interact with Stickler Editing in ways that require Stickler Editing to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Stickler Editing gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who enter into a contract for editing services to provide their name, email address, and additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. Stickler Editing collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Stickler Editing. Stickler Editing 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.
Stickler Editing may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. For instance, Stickler Editing may monitor the most popular pages on the SticklerEditing.com site or use spam screened to help identify spam. Stickler Editing may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Stickler Editing does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Stickler Editing 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 Stickler Editing’s behalf or to provide services available at Stickler Editing’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 Stickler Editing’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Stickler Editing 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, Stickler Editing discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Stickler Editing believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Stickler Editing, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Stickler Editing website and have supplied your email address, Stickler Editing 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 Stickler Editing and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs and articles 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. Stickler Editing takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Stickler Editing, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Stickler Editing 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 Stickler Editing may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to our service 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.
