Your privacy is important to us
Like most website operators, Our Little Village 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. Our Little Village’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Our Little Village’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Our Little Village may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Our Little Village also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blog posts. Our Little Village only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Certain visitors to Our Little Village’s websites choose to interact with Our Little Village in ways that require Our Little Village to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Our Little Village gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who leave a comment at Our Little Village to provide a username and email address.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
