Like most websites, Little Feminist 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. Little Feminist’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Little Feminist’s visitors use its website.
Little Feminist also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Little Feminist 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
For visitors to LittleFeminist.com who buy one of our products, we do gather personally-identifying information. The type of information Little Feminist 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 Little Feminist updates via email, we collect their emails. For those that wish to become Little Feminist book club members, we collect shipping and payment information. In each of these cases, Little Feminist collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Little Feminist. Little Feminist 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 our content.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Little Feminist 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 Little Feminist’s behalf, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Little Feminist 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, Little Feminist discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Little Feminist believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Little Feminist, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Little Feminist and have supplied your email address, Little Feminist 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 Little Feminist and our products. Little Feminist takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
In the unlikely event that Little Feminist 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 Little Feminist may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
