We operate several websites including derekrake.com. It is Derek Rake’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Derek Rake 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. Derek Rake’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Derek Rake’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Derek Rake may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Derek Rake also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on derekrake.com blogs. Derek Rake 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 and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Derek Rake’s websites choose to interact with Derek Rake in ways that require Derek Rake to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Derek Rake gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at derekrake.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Derek Rake – by purchasing access to our coaching 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, Derek Rake collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Derek Rake. Derek Rake 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.
Derek Rake may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Derek Rake may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Derek Rake does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Derek Rake 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 Derek Rake’s behalf or to provide services available at Derek Rake’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 Derek Rake’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Derek Rake 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, Derek Rake discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Derek Rake believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Derek Rake, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Derek Rake website and have supplied your email address, Derek Rake 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 Derek Rake 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. Derek Rake takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Derek Rake, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Derek Rake 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 Derek Rake may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
