PRIVACY POLICY

Share the Magic Foundation respects the privacy concerns of the users of its Internet sites (“sites”) and has created the below Privacy Policy statement to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy. We do not collect personally identifying information about you when you visit our site unless you choose to provide such information. 

As a general policy, no personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, or e-mail address, is automatically collected from your visit to Share the Magic Foundation’s sites. However, certain non-personal information is recorded by the standard operation of Share the Magic Foundation’s Internet servers. Information such as the type of browser being used, its operating system, and your IP address is gathered in order to enhance your online experience. 

INFORMATION

 

USAGE SECURITY:

Security for all personally identifiable information is extremely important to us. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Share the Magic Foundation cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. 

IP ADDRESS USAGE:

An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet provider whenever you are surfing the Web. When you request pages from Share the Magic Foundation Sites or leave comments, our servers log your IP address. Share the Magic  Foundation collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to audit the use of our Site. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that your session will be logged, but you are anonymous to us. 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, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment. We may use your IP addresses in cooperation with your Internet provider to identify you if we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our Terms of Use or to protect our service, sites, customers, or others.
