Privacy is good. As a reader of Boots & Berry, your privacy is important to me. Here are a few fundamental principles:

  1. We don’t ask for your personal information unless we truly need it. Because we can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender, age, or even address for no apparent reason.
  2. We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  3. We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

Website Visitors

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

Boots & Berry also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments. Boots & Berry 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 and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Boots & Berry’s website choose to interact with Boots & Berry in ways that require Boots & Berry to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Boots & Berry gathers depend on the nature of the interaction.

In each case, Boots & Berry collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Boots & Berry. Boots & Berry 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

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

What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Some of our business partners (e.g., advertisers) use cookies that originate from their sites. We have no access or control over those cookies.

What about other Websites linked to Boots & Berry?

We are not responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to or from our site nor the information or content contained therein. Often links to other websites are provided solely as pointers to information on topics that may be useful to the users of our site. Please remember that when you use a link to go from our site to another website, our Privacy Policy is no longer in effect. Your browsing and interaction on any other website, including sites which have a link on our site, is subject to that website’s own rules and policies. Please read over those rules and policies before proceeding.

How about advertising?

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 Boots & Berry and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Your Consent

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Boots & Berry may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Boots & Berry’s sole discretion. Boots & Berry encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
