Who we are
Our website address is: https://runninginsilence.org.
This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for runninginsilence.com. We are located in the United States, and our goods and services aren’t envisioned as being offered to users in the EU. We do not knowingly collect information from children under 14 years of age. We will only use or disclose personal information about a child to the extent permitted by law, to seek parental consent pursuant to local law and regulations, or to protect a child.
This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this website. It will notify you of the following:
- What personally identifiable information is collected from you through the website, how it is used and with whom it may be shared.
- What choices are available to you regarding the use of your data.
- The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information.
Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
Information collected online can generally be categorized as anonymous or personally identifiable. Anonymous information is information that cannot be connected to the identity of a specific individual. Personally identifiable information and data (“personal information” or “personal data”) is information that specifically identifies a particular user, such as name, address, or phone number. An example of anonymous information is the fact that, while this website may record the number of visits to a particular page that occur in a given period of time, it does not necessarily tell us the names or other identifying information of every visitor.
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
When you contact us, participate in chats with us, comment, or respond to surveys, or if you email us, you are voluntarily releasing personal information to us. You may decide not to volunteer personal information, but this may limit the functionality of this website. We automatically collect personal information when you interact with this website. Personal data may also be generated from technical processes such as contact forms, comments, cookies, analytics, and third party embeds. This is described further below.
When you visit our website, we collect certain technical and routing information about your computer to measure the use of this website and to improve its content and performance. To the extent that we share such information with third parties, it is not traceable to any particular user, and will not be used to contact you.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personal information.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment.
If you have an account, if you log in to this site, or if we create an account at your request, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
If you log in or if we create an account for you, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
Users that sign up for our email subscription may opt out at any time.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the Web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personal information. The computers/servers in which we store personal information are kept in a secure environment.
However, no method of transmission over the internet is 100% secure. We do not guarantee that unauthorized, inadvertent disclosure will never occur or that our information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by any breach of any of our industry standard physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
What rights you have over your data
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time.
