PRIVACY POLICY

Effective Date: November 19, 2021

The Shine A Light Privacy Policy (“Policy”) was created to help you understand how shinealighton.com and other Web properties (the “Site”) collect personally identifying information about you and how Shine A Light uses and discloses that personal information. 

Shinealighton.com is a web site owned by Shine A Light IP Holdings, LLC (“Shine A Light,” SAL,” “we,” “us” etc.), existing under the laws of the State of Delaware, U.S.A. Shine A Light is committed to the lawful and transparent collection and use of data you provide to us through interaction with our website. This Privacy Policy explains what information we collect and why we collect it, how we use that information, and your options for controlling and updating your information. 

By visiting our Site, you agree to be legally bound by this Policy and the Terms of Use. If you do not agree to this Policy or cannot form a legally binding contract, you may not use this Site.

INFORMATION COLLECTED

This site collects two types of information from you (1) personally identifying information voluntarily provided by you (“PII”), and (2) non identifying data about your use of our Sites (“General Information). 

PII

It is always your choice, or the choice of anyone acting for you, whether to provide personal information. However, some must be provided to participate in certain programs or activities so the decision not to provide information might limit or eliminate certain functions of the Site or the ability to participate.

SAL may collect personal information from our Site’s email links / contact form such as:

* Name

* Mailing Address

* Telephone Number

* E-Mail address

In general, we use personal information we collect from these forms for the purpose for which it was collected. We also work with certain third parties, and, in some cases, personal information will be shared with these parties in order to pursue SAL’s mission and goals.

We will not sell or disclose any of your personal information to a third party, except for the sharing information with our business partners (as noted above) and in the following limited circumstances:

* To fulfill our obligations to you and to respond to any questions or requests;

* With your permission to disclose the information;

* To contact you about material changes in our site terms or policies;

* To provide to third parties as a result of any reorganization process;

* To share it with agents or contractors who perform services for us;

* If you sign up for a blog, feed or newsletter, we may put you on our mailing list or even the list of a Third Party who we think has a similar mission;

* As required by law.

Please remember that any information you share in public areas, such as message boards or feedback sections, becomes public, and therefore this Privacy Policy does not apply to any information that you choose to make public. Please be careful about what you disclose, and do not post any personal information that you expect to keep private.

2) General Information

The Foundation automatically collects General Information about which of our Sites you visit and how you navigate them using tracking technologies, including small text files called “cookies” and electronic images known as “web beacons.”

The information collected via cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologies is anonymous and not personally identifiable.

General Information may include, without limitation, your:

  • Session date and time
  • Internet Protocol (IP) address
  • Internet Service Provider (ISP)
  • Location
  • Language
  • Browser, operating system and device types
  • Source or referral sites; and
  • Browsing behavior, including pages visited, hyperlinks clicked, session times and search requests.

We use this general information to help diagnose problems with the Site and to administer our Site. We may also share it with our business partners so that they may provide us reports and analysis regarding usage and browsing patterns of the Site.

UPDATES AND CORRECTIONS

This Site gives users the opportunity to change any information previously provided to us through this Site. If you have questions about what personal information about you SAL retains, please contact us at info@shinealighton.com or send us an email through our Contact Page. SAL endeavors to keep your personal information accurate and up to date. If your personal information has changed, you may submit new information there as well.

We keep personal information for as long as we think necessary or advisable and we reserve the right to retain it to the full extent not prohibited by law. We may discard personal information in our discretion, so you should retain your own records, and not rely upon our storage of any personal information or other data.

COOKIES

Like many websites, we use “cookies,” which are small text files that are stored on your computer or equipment when you visit certain online pages that record your preferences. We use cookies to track use of our Site and online services. We may also use cookies to monitor traffic, improve the Site and make it easier and/or relevant for your use, by for example, remembering your passwords and viewing preferences and allowing you to visit any member-only parts of the Site without re-registering. Cookies cannot retrieve any other data from a hard drive or obtain an e-mail address. Although a user has the ability to modify most browsers to either accept all cookies, notify the user when a cookie is sent, or reject all cookies, it may not be possible to use certain services on this Site if cookies are not accepted.

WEB BEACONS

Like some websites, we may use web beacons or flash cookies. A web beacon or flash cookie (also known as “action tags” “tracer tags” or “single-pixel gifs”) is an invisible graphic on a web page or e-mail newsletter that is programmed to collect non-personally identifiable information about your use of a given website or newsletter, e.g. whether you opened the e-mail. Like cookies, web beacons allow SAL and its technology providers to summarize overall usage patterns for our analysis and provide personalized services to you. We do not share or provide personally identifiable information we may collect through such web beacons, such as names or e-mail addresses without your express permission.

LINKS

Our sites and apps may include links to third-party sites, apps and social media platforms. Clicking on those links may allow third parties to collect or share data from you. We do not endorse or control Third Party Sites, each of which may be governed by its own terms of service and privacy policy, and we encourage you to read their privacy policies and terms so that you understand how they process information about you. You are solely responsible for all liability for any damage or other harm, whether to you or third parties, resulting from your use of Third-Party Sites.

CHILDREN

We do not want to collect information from children. Do not provide any personal information unless you are at least 13 years of age, and please caution your children not to provide any. If a child under 13 has provided personal information, a parent or guardian may so inform us by writing us at info@shinealighton.com and we will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete it from our database, subject to applicable law and this Policy.

SECURITY

We use reasonable technical and organizational measures to protect the personal information received from our users from unauthorized use or disclosure. This site has security measures in place to protect loss, misuse, and/or alteration of such information under our control. However, we do not guarantee the security of your General or Personal Information. In addition, we do not assume any liability for third party use of your General or Personal Information, whether obtained legally or illegally from or through this Site.

CHANGES TO OUR POLICY

We reserve the right to modify or amend the terms of this Privacy Policy from time to time without notice. Your continued use of our Site following the posting of changes to this Privacy Policy will mean you accept those changes.
