Privacy

Your privacy is critically important to us. Run Down The Demons has a few fundamental principles:

  • 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 one of our services.
  • In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals. Run Down The Demons policy is to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Run Down The Demons 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. The purpose in the Run Down The Demons policy of collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Run Down The Demons visitors use its website. From time to time, Run Down The Demons may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Run Down The demons also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users that share any content. Run Down The Demons 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 webpage where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to the Run Down The Demons website choose to interact with Run Down The Demons in ways that require Run Down The Demons to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Run Down The Demons gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up to be on the mailing list (we also reserve the right to implement this or not) at rundownthedemons.org to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Run Down The Demons, in any form, are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Run Down The Demons collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Run Down The Demons. Run Down The Demons 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.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

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