Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Langfords we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  • In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

(Note, We have copied this policy from Automattic who decided to make this privacy policy available under a Creative Commons Sharealike license, which means you’re more than welcome to steal it and repurpose it for your own use, just make sure to replace references to us with ones to you, and if you want we’d appreciate a link to Automattic.com somewhere on your site. Automattic spent a lot of money and time on the below, and other people shouldn’t need to do the same.)

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Langfords 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. Langfords’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Langfords’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Langfords may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Langfords also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. Langfords 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 Langfords’s websites choose to interact with Langfords in ways that require Langfords to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Langfords gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at Langfords.com to provide a username and email address. Langfords collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Langfords. Langfords 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

Langfords may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Langfords may monitor the most popular blogs on the Langfords.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Langfords may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Langfords does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Langfords will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.  Langfords discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Langfords believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Langfords, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Langfords website and have supplied your email address, Langfords 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 Langfords 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. Langfords takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
