Norman’s Gazette (a subsidiary of Coup de Foudre, LLC) has created this page to describe its policies and firm commitment to safeguarding your privacy. The following paragraphs disclose our information gathering and dissemination practices for our web site: www.normansgazette.com. Please read this policy to understand how your personal information will be treated as you make use of the blog. In the event that Norman’s Gazette makes a change in this policy that materially impacts your privacy, we will attach a notice, concerning the change, to our blog for at least thirty (30) days.
This page describes:
- Who is collecting your information
- What ‘cookies’ are and how they are used
- What personally identifiable information is collected from you
- How your information is and is not used
- With whom your information may be shared
- Some important sources of information concerning your on-line privacy
- How to contact us with your questions or concerns
Like most websites, Norman’s Gazette may use a “cookie” to facilitate your use of our web site. A cookie is a small data file sent by our server to your internet browser that your browser temporarily saves (if you have submitted a user name and password to log-on) and sends back to our server when you make additional requests from us during your browsing session. This, among other things, saves time by assigning you a temporary ID which allows you to use a site without having to re-enter information as you move from page to page within the site — in other words, it assists you in negotiating our site. The cookie also, if applicable, identifies that you are really you when you enter our password-restricted areas. Once you shut down your browser, these ‘session’ cookies expire and are automatically deleted. We cannot identify you or personal information about you based solely on the use of one of these cookies, nor do we use them to track what pages you visit.
Your internet browser gives you the option to accept or deny cookies – that is, turn them off, (they are not sent to your computer without your approval). If you have ever turned off your browser’s cookie function you probably turned it on again soon thereafter when you discovered it was much easier to negotiate the Internet!
This site may contain Links to other web sites. Norman’s Gazette is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these other sites. They are offered simply as being of possible interest to our readers because of their content and panache! Please be aware that although we do not provide your information to them in any capacity, nor is our private information accessible to them by any means, these linked web sites may collect personally identifiable information about you when you utilize their services. The information practices of web sites on our Links page are not covered by this privacy statement.
Children may want to visit us on the internet. We obviously welcome all readers, but parents should know that there might be instances when our material may not be suitable for all children. (There are no examples in our blog at this time.) We believe parents should be responsible for supervising the on-line activities of their children and taking into account various tools that allow them to provide their children with a controlled, child-friendly internet. Among other things, these tools are designed to preclude children from releasing personal information on-line without the permission of their parents.
Norman’s Gazette welcomes Readers to become Subscribers. Toward that end you must enter an ID, password, name and email address. In all cases, you may opt-out of being a Subscriber if you find the blog is not your cup of tea. And, of course, your information is only for your use to Subscribe and receive the blog via your email. We do not, nor will we ever, disclose your information to a third party (except in the event it is requested in a legal action by law enforcement. See Below.) Users should be aware that all web sites visited, anywhere on the Internet, have the ability to recall a list of browsers’s individual URLs and IP addresses simply by virtue of one having visited their site, unless you utilize a special browser to conceal this data. Users must remember that, just like in the ‘real’ world, Privacy is not the same thing as Invisibility!
As a general rule, we will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) Norman’s Gazette’s rights or property, our other blog users, or anyone who could be harmed by such activities. Norman’s Gazette may disclose user information when we believe in good faith the law requires it or for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain our products and services. You would be notified of such disclosure.
