Website Visitors

Please note that this Privacy Policy does not apply to any of 180 Rule’s products or services that have a separate privacy policy.
Below is explained how 180 Rule collects, uses, and shares information about you, along with the choices that you have with respect to that information.

What we collect:

We collect information in three ways: if and when you provide information to us, automatically through operating the website, and from outside sources. Let’s go over the information that 180rule.com collects.

Like most website operators, 180rule.com collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, unique device identifiers, language preference, referring site, the date and time of access, operating system, and mobile network information. 180rule.com’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how 180rule.com’s visitors use its website. We may determine the approximate location of your device from your IP address. We collect and use this information to, for example, calculate how many people visit our website from certain geographic regions. From time to time, 180rule.com may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

180rule.com also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. 180rule.com 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.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to 180rule.com’s websites choose to interact with 180rule.com in ways that require 180rule.com to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that 180rule.com gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up to leave comments to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in financial transactions with 180rule.com are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, 180rule.com collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with 180rule.com. 180rule.com 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
180rule.com may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, 180rule.com may monitor the blog on the site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. 180rule.com may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, 180rule.com does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
180rule.com 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 180rule.com’s behalf or to provide services available at 180rule.com’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 180rule.com’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. 180rule.com 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, 180rule.com discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when 180rule.com believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of 180rule.com, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a180rule.com website and have supplied your email address, 180rule.com 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 180rule.com and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs 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. 180rule.com takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

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, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.

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.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, if you are using Gravatar, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact Forms
180 Rule may collect information about you for 2 reasons: firstly, to process your order and second, to response to any queries which you may have. The information you submit will be sent via the web host server to a 180 Rule Gmail account and treated as any other email.

Ads
Ads appearing on any of our websites 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 180rule.com and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a user’s prior visits to your website or other websites.

Google’s use of advertising cookies enables it and its partners to serve ads to 180Rule’s users based on their visit to this website and/or other sites on the Internet.

Users may opt out of personalized advertising by visiting Ads Settings. (Alternatively, users can choose to opt out of a third-party vendor’s use of cookies for personalized advertising by visiting www.aboutads.info.)

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data
