2. INFORMATION COLLECTION PRACTICES
2.1. WHAT BASIC INFORMATION DOES THE COMPANY COLLECT?
allergiesandyourgut.com (owned and operated by Joan Rothchild Hardin) processes personal data as a Controller as defined in the GDPR.
Any personal information collected by Us is done so that our Site will function properly and so that we can continue to maintain the Site to the best of our abilities.
In operating the Site, we collect personal information from you in a couple different consent-based situations.
If you contact us via the “contact” page you will be providing us with your name and email address.
If you leave a comment on a blog post you may be asked for a name and email address.
You are not required to provide us with information via these two methods to use and enjoy the Site.
If you subscribe to our email list we will also have access to your email address and IP address. We only send emails to people who have chosen to opt in to our email list, and you can always unsubscribe at any time if you wish. Every email newsletter that we send includes an unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email.
Alternatively, you can also contact us and request to have your email address removed from our list.
2.2. WHAT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION DOES COMPANY COLLECT?
(a) AUTOMATIC COLLECTION. Our servers automatically recognize visitors’ domain names and IP addresses (the number assigned to computers on the Internet). No personal information about you is revealed in this process. The Site may also gather anonymous “traffic data” that does not personally identify you, but that may be helpful for marketing purposes or for improving the services we offer.
3. USE AND SHARING OF INFORMATION
3.1. WHAT DOES COMPANY DO WITH COLLECTED INFORMATION?
(a) PERSONAL INFORMATION. We do not disclose the personally identifiable information to any third parties other than those that we use to facilitate the functioning of the site such as a hosting company and email program for mailings.
(b) ANONYMOUS INFORMATION. We use anonymous information to analyze our Site traffic. In addition, we may use anonymous IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our site, or to display the content according to your preferences. Traffic and transaction information may also be shared with business partners and advertisers on an aggregate and anonymous basis.
(c) DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION. We may disclose any information we have for you if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (1) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on us, (2) protect and defend our rights or property or the users of the Site, or (3) act under exigent circumstances to protect the safety of the public or users of the Site.
The Site has security measures in place to prevent the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information that we obtain from you (such as an active SSL certificate), but we make no assurances about our ability to prevent any such loss to you or to any third party arising out of any such loss, misuse, or alteration.
