Privacy Policy:

Penny Walton (“Penny“) operates PennyWalton.com and may operate other websites. It is Penny Walton’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Penny 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. Penny Walton’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Penny Walton’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Penny may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Penny also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on PennyWalton.com blogs/sites. Penny 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 commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Penny Walton’s websites choose to interact with Penny in ways that require Penny to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Penny gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at PennyWalton.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Penny are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Penny collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Penny. Penny 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.

Aggregated Statistics

Penny may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Penny may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Penny does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Penny 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 Penny Walton’s behalf or to provide services available at Penny Walton’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 Penny Walton’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Penny 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, Penny discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Penny believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Penny, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Penny website and have supplied your email address, Penny 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 Penny and our products. If you send us a request (for example via 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. Penny takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
