Your privacy is critically important to us. At South Lumina Style, 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 ongoing operation of one of our services.
South Lumina Style, LLC (“South Lumina Style“) operates southluminastyle.com. It is South Lumina Style’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, South Lumina Style 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. South Lumina Style’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how its visitors use its website. From time to time, South Lumina Style may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
South Lumina Style also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on the southluminastyle.com blog. South Lumina Style 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 South Lumina Style’s websites choose to interact with South Lumina Style in ways that require South Lumina Style to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that South Lumina Style gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with South Lumina Style are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, South Lumina Style collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with South Lumina Style. South Lumina Style 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.
South Lumina Style may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, South Lumina Style may monitor the most popular posts on the southluminastyle.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. South Lumina Style may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, South Lumina Style does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
South Lumina Style 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 South Lumina Style’s behalf or to provide services available at South Lumina Style’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 South Lumina Style’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. South Lumina Style 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, South Lumina Style discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when South Lumina Style believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of South Lumina Style, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the South Lumina Style website and have supplied your email address, South Lumina Style may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new posts, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with South Lumina Style 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. South Lumina Style takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If South Lumina Style, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that South Lumina Style 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 South Lumina Style may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to our anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives or missed spam, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives and missed spam.
