Your privacy is very important to us. At The Luxe Strategist we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
- 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 on-going operation of our site.
Like most website operators, The Luxe Strategist 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. The Luxe Strategist’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The Luxe Strategist’s visitors use its website. From time to time, The Luxe Strategist may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
The Luxe Strategist also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. The Luxe Strategist 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 The Luxe Strategist’s websites choose to interact with The Luxe Strategist in ways that require The Luxe Strategist to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Luxe Strategist gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide an email address. Those who wish to receive The Luxe Strategist updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, The Luxe Strategist collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Luxe Strategist. The Luxe Strategist 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.
The Luxe Strategist may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, The Luxe Strategist may monitor the most popular pages using Google Analytics. The Luxe Strategist may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, The Luxe Strategist does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
The Luxe Strategist 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 The Luxe Strategist’s behalf or to provide services available at The Luxe Strategist’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 The Luxe Strategist’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Luxe Strategist 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, The Luxe Strategist discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when The Luxe Strategist believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The Luxe Strategist, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a The Luxe Strategist website and have supplied your email address, The Luxe Strategist 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 The Luxe Strategist and our products. 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. The Luxe Strategist takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If The Luxe Strategist, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that The Luxe Strategist 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 The Luxe Strategist may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
