Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us.

JanRyen.com operates several websites including JanRyen.com. It is JanRyen.com’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, JanRyen.com 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. JanRyen.com’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how JanRyen.com’s visitors use its website. From time to time, JanRyen.com may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

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

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to JanRyen.com’s websites choose to interact with JanRyen.com in ways that require JanRyen.com to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that JanRyen.com gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment or post material at  JanRyen.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with JanRyen.com – by purchasing access to any of our Services, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, JanRyen.com collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the customer or visitor’s interaction with JanRyen.com. JanRyen.com 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

JanRyen.com may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. JanRyen.com may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, JanRyen.com does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

JanRyen.com 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 JanRyen.com’s behalf or to provide services available at JanRyen.com’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 JanRyen.com’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. JanRyen.com 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, JanRyen.com discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when JanRyen.com believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of JanRyen.com, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a JanRyen.com website and have supplied your email address or have chosen to opt in to one or more newsletter subscriptions, JanRyen.com 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 JanRyen.com and our products. 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. JanRyen.com takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
