Your Privacy is very important to us.
At thehumblingbee we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
Like most website operators, The Humbling Bee 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 Humbling Bee’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The Humbling Bee’s visitors use its website. From time to time, The Humbling Bee may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
The Humbling Bee also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. The Humbling Bee 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 are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Certain visitors to The Humbling Bee’s websites choose to interact with The Humbling Bee in ways that require The Humbling Bee to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Humbling Bee gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, The Humbling Bee collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Humbling Bee. The Humbling Bee 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.
The Humbling Bee 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 Humbling Bee’s behalf or to provide services available at The Humbling Bee’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 Humbling Bee’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Humbling Bee 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 Humbling Bee discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when The Humbling Bee believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The Humbling Bee, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of The Humbling Bee website and have supplied your email address, The Humbling Bee may 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 Humbling Bee and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information. 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 Humbling Bee takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
