Like most website operators, The Better Butcher 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. The Better Butcher’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The Better Butcher.com’s visitors use its website. From time to time, The Better Butcher may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
The Better Butcher also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. The Better Butcher does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to The Better Butcher’s website choose to interact with The Better Butcher in ways that require The Better Butcher to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Better Butcher gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who register for an account to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with The Better Butcher – by purchasing our plugins, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, The Better Butcher collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Better Butcher.
The Better Butcher does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
The Better Butcher may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, The Better Butcher may monitor plugin downloads or number of comments. The Better Butcher may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, The Better Butcher does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
The Better Butcher 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 The Better Butcher’s behalf or to provide services available at The Better Butcher’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 The Better Butcher’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Better Butcher 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, The Better Butcher discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when The Better Butcher believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The Better Butcher, third parties or the public at large.
If you are a registered user of a The Better Butcher website and have supplied your email address, The Better Butcher 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 The Better Butcher and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum.
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. The Better Butcher takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
