Your privacy is very important to us. At Mingle Media, LLC 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.
Mingle Media, LLC (“MM”) operates several websites including MingleMediaMarketing.com, MMRIAMarketing.com, MingleMedia.Marketing, and HendrikdeVries.com. It is MM’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, MM 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. MM’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how MM’s visitors use its website. From time to time, MM may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
MM also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. MM 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 MM’s websites choose to interact with MM in ways that require MM to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that MM gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive MM or Ten4Leads updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, MM collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with MM. MM 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.
MM may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, MM may monitor the most popular pages on the minglemediamarketing.com and ten4leads.com sites using HotJar or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. MM may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, MM does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
MM 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 MM’s behalf or to provide services available at MM’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 MM’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. MM 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, MM discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when MM believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of MM, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an MM website and have supplied your email address, MM 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 MM 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. MM takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If MM, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that MM 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 MM may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
DMCA CLAIM DISCLOSURES
We comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998, better known as the “DMCA”. Should we receive a claim of copyright infringement, we will comply with the safe harbor requirements of the DMCA. Part of that compliance may require the disclosure of your identity if you are either the allegedly infringing party or the party filing the copyright infringement complaint.
