Your privacy is very important to me. Accordingly, I have developed this Policy in order for you to understand how I collect, use, communicate and make use of personal information.
When accessing my Website, Project Management Chick will learn certain information about you during your visit. Similar to other commercial Web sites, my Web site utilizes a standard technology called “cookies” (see explanation below, “What Are Cookies?”) and Web server logs to collect information about how my Web site is used. Information gathered through cookies and Web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at my Web site, and the Web sites visited just before and just after my Web site, your IP address.
Collection of Information
Information You Provide to Me: I collect information about you when you visit and interact with this Site. Some of this information is automatically collected, and some is collected when you interact with the Site. The type of information that is automatically collected can include date and time of access of the Site, the Internet protocol address of the computer that you are using, the domain and host from which you access the Internet, your browser software and operating system, and the specific activities you are engaged in while visiting the Site. Information from which you can be personally identified may also be collected by me at the Site, including your name, postal address, email address (referred to as “Personal Consumer Information”). Of course, you may choose not to provide certain information to me, but if so, you may not be able to participate in certain of the activities and transactions available at the Site.
Electronic Communication: When you communicate with me electronically, via e-mail, you consent to my use of the information you have provided, and you further consent to receive electronic communications from me and/or my affiliated entities. If you would prefer not to receive such communications, you can opt out of our email lists by either clicking on the “opt out” line at the bottom of the email, or by emailing me directly here.
What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a Web site, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each Web site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a Web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by my web server as part of demographic and profile data known as “traffic data” so that data (such as the Web pages you request) can be sent to you.
If you choose to correspond with me through email, I may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. I provide the same protections for these electronic communications that I employ in the maintenance of information received online, mail and telephone.
How Do I Use the Information That You Provide to Me?
Broadly speaking, I use personal information for purposes of administering my business activities, providing customer service and making available other items and services to my customers and prospective customers.
Project Management Chick will not obtain personally-identifying information about you when you visit my site, unless you choose to provide such information to me, nor will such information be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties without the approval of the user at the time of collection. I may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when I, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of my legal rights.
I may use “cookies” and/or other technologies or files (collectively, “cookies”) to identify how visitors make use of this Site. This aggregate tracking information is used to help me improve and enhance the website experience for all of my visitors. If you would prefer not to have such cookies stored on your computer, you may modify your browser settings to reject most cookies, or manually remove cookies that have been placed on your computer. However, by so rejecting the cookies, you may be unable to fully access the offerings on this Site
How Do I Protect Your Information and Secure Information Transmissions?
Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, I request that you do not send private information to me by email. However, doing so is allowed, but at your own risk. Some of the information you may enter on my Web site may be transmitted securely via a secure medium known as Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL. Credit Card information is never transmitted via email.
Project Management Chick may use software programs to create summary statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing the number of visitors to the different sections of my site, what information is of most and least interest, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas.
For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, Project Management Chick uses software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.
Security of Information
I maintain reasonable standards of confidentiality and security for this Site and for the Personal Consumer Information collected from this Site. However, it is possible that someone may intercept or access communications, transmissions and/or Personal Consumer Information. You must also seek to protect against unauthorized access to any information that you use in connection with this website, and you should remerge to close the browser once you have completed your activities on the Site or if you have decided to step away from your computer. In the event that I determine that there has been a security breach resulting the unauthorized disclosure of Personal Consumer Information to a third party, I will notify consumers whose Personal Consumer Information has been so disclosed by posting such information on the Site and, if email contact is possible, then I would send an email advising of the status.
Use of the Site by Children
