Jay Beaton Consulting LLC (“JBC”) operates several websites including jaybeaton.com, miradem.com, and various Miradem community sites (“Miradem Sites”). It is JBC’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, JBC 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. JBC’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how JBC’s visitors use its website. From time to time, JBC may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
JBC also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users managing content or leaving comments on Miradem Sites. JBC 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 content manager and commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the site.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to JBC’s websites choose to interact with JBC in ways that require JBC to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that JBC gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with JBC may be asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and/or financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, JBC collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with JBC. JBC 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.
JBC may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, JBC may monitor Miradem Sites or use spam screened by various spam services service to help identify spam. JBC may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, JBC does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
JBC discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that need to know that information in order to process it on JBC’s behalf or to provide services available at JBC’s websites. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using JBC’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. JBC 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, JBC discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when JBC believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of JBC, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a JBC website and have supplied your email address, JBC 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 JBC and our products. We primarily use our site 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. JBC takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If JBC, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that JBC 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 JBC may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
