Thank you for visiting AnneRyder.com (the "Site"). Your privacy is very important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices, including the collection and use of information at the Site and procedures for changing, correcting or deleting your information.
The Site is a general audience website and Ryder Media does not knowingly or intentionally request or collect personal information from children under the age of thirteen (13) without prior verifiable parental consent. If, in the future, we do collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen (13), we will do so in accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998.
At this Site, you may now (or in the future be able to): view the content or share your own meaningful and inspirational stories, statements, anecdotes, videos and/or photographs ("User Submissions"). When you share a User Submission on the Site, we will collect the following personally identifiable information from you: your name, address, e-mail address and telephone number. We will use this information only to contact you regarding your User Submission or to get your feedback on other features of the Site.
We receive and collect some non-personally identifiable information automatically when you visit the Site. For example, when you visit the Site, we receive and collect the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet. We also receive and collect the Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using, the browser software you use, your operating system, the date and time you access our site and, if applicable, the Internet address of the web site from which you linked directly to our Site. We use this information to monitor the usage of the Site. In addition, this allows the ability to enhance your experience while on the Site.
Generally, we use the information you provide about yourself simply to allow your participation in the services on the Site. In addition, we may use it to help create new services and to respond to any inquiries you may send us. On occasion, we may use the information we gather, or that is provided to us by you, to communicate with you in various mediums. Some examples are e-mail notifications of upcoming special features or events.
In the event that you provide us with a User Submission, we may identify you as the author of the User Submission as we deem appropriate. Each time you provide us with a User Submission, you are agreeing that Ryder Media can post your name in conjunction with that User Submission on the Site.
We may use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design, content, and navigation of the Site. By doing this, it is our intent to improve your experience while at the Site.
Ryder Media will not sell or otherwise provide your personal information to any other companies for commercial purposes. Again, personal information is strictly used to allow your participation in our services and to enhance your visit to the Site. However, we may disclose personally identifiable information in response to legal process—for example, in response to a court order or subpoena. We also may disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency's request.
We may share aggregate information, such as demographics and website usage statistics, with advertisers, sponsors or other organizations. When this type of information is shared, the receiving parties will never have access to personally identifiable information.
To enhance your experience at the Site, many of the web pages use "cookies." Cookies are text files placed in your computer's browser to store your preferences. Cookies, by themselves, do not contain your e-mail address or other personally identifiable information unless you choose to provide this information by, for example, registering at one of our sites. However, once you choose to furnish a site with personally identifiable information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie.
Cookies are used to understand site usage and to improve the content and offerings on the Site. For example, cookies may be used to personalize your experience at our web pages (e.g., to recognize you by name when you return to the Site) and to save your password in password-protected areas.
This site may contain links to other sites whose information practices may be different from ours. Because of this, visitors should consult the privacy notices of any site they link to from this Site.
If your personally identifiable information changes (such as your address, zip code or email address), or if you no longer desire to access our website and use our services, we will provide you with a means of correcting, updating or removing the personal data you have previously provided through the Site. This can be done by emailing the changes or request for deletion to firstname.lastname@example.org.
