Commitment To Your Privacy
This site is owned and operated by The Henry Bierce Company. Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. At The Henry Bierce Company, we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe.
Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.
Definition of the Information The Henry Bierce Company gathers and keeps track of.
The Henry Bierce Company gathers two types of information about users:
- Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to receive our e-mail promotions, to email a friend, and from participation in polls and surveys:
- Information The Henry Bierce Company gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers needs and to help our advertisers and sponsors better understand the demographics of our audience. Under no circumstances does The Henry Bierce Company divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.
The Henry Bierce Company Gathers User Information In The Following Processes:
Optional Voluntary Information
We may offer the following free services, which require some type of voluntary submission of personal information by users:
1. E-mail promotions
We send out e-mail promotions to our users and customers. The Henry Bierce Company gathers the email addresses of users and customers who voluntarily subscribe or have given their permission. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the link provided that points users to the removal page.
2. "E-mail this to a friend" Service Our site users can choose
to electronically forward a page to someone else by clicking "e-mail
this to a friend". The user must provide their email address, as well
as that of the recipient. This information is used only in the case
of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who
sent the email. The information is not used for any other purpose.
3. Polling We may offer interactive polls to users so they
can easily share their opinions with other users and see what our audience
thinks about important issues. Opinions or other responses to polls
are aggregated and are not identifiable to any particular user. The Henry Bierce Company may use a system to "tag" users after they have voted,
so they can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is not
correlated with information about individual users.
4. Surveys The Henry Bierce Company may occasionally conduct user
surveys to better target our content to our audience. We never share
any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.
5. Feedback Forms Our site users can elect to send us their
feedback and or questions by filling out the "contact form". We never
share any of this information about specific individuals with any third
Consistent with the Federal Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.
The Henry Bierce Company tracks user traffic patterns throughout our site. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. The Henry Bierce Company does break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).
Use of Information
The Henry Bierce Company uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience on our site, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the site or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.
As stated above, we use information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out electronic promotions and to enable users to participate in polls and surveys. We occasionally send out special promotions when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing. The Henry Bierce Company never shares our mailing lists with any third parties, including advertisers.
We use tracking information to determine which areas of our site users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
Sharing of Information
The Henry Bierce Company uses the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs. We will not share information about individual users with any third party, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
The Henry Bierce Company operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our customers.
We give users options wherever necessary and practical. Such choices include:
- Opting not to register to receive our electronic promotions.
- Opting not to participate in certain interactive areas, which completely alleviates the need to gather any personally identifiable information from our users
At any time you may contact The Henry Bierce Company with any privacy questions or concerns you may have. You also may ask at any time to see the data you have given us and request correction or deletion. Our goal is to ensure the highest levels of security and confidentiality.
