Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us.

At LearnPortugueseWithGrace we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  • In our blog, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted. Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals.

Website Visitors

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

LearnPortugueseWithGrace also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on the blog. LearnPortugueseWithGrace 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 LearnPortugueseWithGrace’s websites choose to interact with LearnPortugueseWithGrace in ways that require LearnPortugueseWithGrace to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that LearnPortugueseWithGrace gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on the blog to provide a name and an email address (the email address will not be published). In each case, LearnPortugueseWithGrace collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with LearnPortugueseWithGrace. LearnPortugueseWithGrace 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.

Aggregated Statistics

LearnPortugueseWithGrace may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, LearnPortugueseWithGrace may monitor the most popular blog posts on the site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. LearnPortugueseWithGrace may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, LearnPortugueseWithGrace does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Personally Identifying Information

LearnPortugueseWithGrace discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on LearnPortugueseWithGrace’s behalf or to provide services available at LearnPortugueseWithGrace’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.

Some of those affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using LearnPortugueseWithGrace’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. LearnPortugueseWithGrace will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its affiliated organizations, as described above, LearnPortugueseWithGrace discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when LearnPortugueseWithGrace believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of LearnPortugueseWithGrace, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of the LearnPortugueseWithGrace website and have supplied your email address, LearnPortugueseWithGrace 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 LearnPortugueseWithGrace 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. LearnPortugueseWithGrace 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. LearnPortugueseWithGrace uses cookies to help LearnPortugueseWithGrace identify and track visitors, their usage of LearnPortugueseWithGrace website, and their website access preferences. LearnPortugueseWithGrace visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using LearnPortugueseWithGrace’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of LearnPortugueseWithGrace’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

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

It is important to notice that LearnPortugueseWithGrace never asks for anything other than NAME, EMAIL, and opcionally, WEBSITE ADDRESS. No other information is ever asked for or entered on this site, certainly not any financial information.

Ads

Ads appearing on our website 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 LearnPortugueseWithGrace and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Comments

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

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, LearnPortugueseWithGrace may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in LearnPortugueseWithGrace’s sole discretion. LearnPortugueseWithGrace encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy.
