Privacy Policy

 

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, JC Owens Global Consulting, LLC (“JC Owens”) 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. JC Owens’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how JC Owens’s visitors use its website. From time to time, JC Owens may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

JC Owens also collects potentially personally-identifying information such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. JC Owens only discloses logged in user addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to JC Owens’s websites choose to interact with JC Owens in ways that require JC Owens to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that JC Owens gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with JC Owens are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, JC Owens collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with JC Owens. JC Owens does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Aggregated Statistics

JC Owens may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, JC Owens may use services to help identify spam. JC Owens may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, JC Owens does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

JC Owens 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 JC Owens’s behalf or to provide services available at JC Owens’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 JC Owens’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. JC Owens 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, JC Owens discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when JC Owens believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of JC Owens, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a JC Owens website and have supplied your email address, JC Owens may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or keep you up to date with JC Owens and its products. 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. JC Owens takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. JC Owens uses cookies to help JC Owens identify and track visitors, their usage of JC Owens website, and their website access preferences. JC Owens visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using JC Owens’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of JC Owens’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If JC Owens, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that JC Owens 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 JC Owens may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by JC Owens and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Comments

Comments and other content submitted to our anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
