Terms Of Service and Privacy Policy

Website Visitors

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

Stone Pro Slingers also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. Stone Pro Slingers 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 Stone Pro Slingers’s websites choose to interact with Stone Pro Slingers in ways that require Stone Pro Slingers to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Stone Pro Slingers gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at WordPress.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Stone Pro Slingers – by purchasing access to the Akismet comment spam prevention service, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Stone Pro Slingers collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Stone Pro Slingers. Stone Pro Slingers 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

Stone Pro Slingers may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Stone Pro Slingers may monitor the most popular blogs on the WordPress.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Stone Pro Slingers may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Stone Pro Slingers does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

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

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Stone Pro Slingers uses cookies to help Stone Pro Slingers identify and track visitors, their usage of Stone Pro Slingers website, and their website access preferences. Stone Pro Slingers visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Stone Pro Slingers’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Stone Pro Slingers’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Stone Pro Slingers, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Stone Pro Slingers 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 Stone Pro Slingers may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Stone Pro Slingers and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Comments

Comments and other content submitted to our Akismet anti-spam 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.

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Stone Pro Slingers may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Stone Pro Slingers’s sole discretion. Stone Pro Slingers encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy.
