Your privacy is critically important to us here at The Many Hats Institute. Our privacy 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 and services, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the ongoing operation of one of our services.
- In our online communities, 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.
If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data, please contact us.
The Many Hats Institute operates several websites. It is The Many Hats Institute’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, The Many Hats Institute 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. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use the website. From time to time, The Many Hats Institute may release non-personally identifying information in the aggregate; for example, by publishing a report on trends in the usage of our website.
The Many Hats Institute also collects potentially personally identifiable information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. The Many Hats Institute only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally identifiable 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 The Many Hats Institute’s websites choose to interact with The Many Hats Institute in ways that require us to gather personally identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Many Hats Institute gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blogs to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with The Many Hats Institute – by submitting a contact form, by requesting a free resource, by purchasing access to reports or paying for workshops, events or services, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, The Many Hats Institute collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Many Hats Institute. The Many Hats Institute 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 Many Hats Institute may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, The Many Hats Institute may monitor the most popular pages. The Many Hats Institute may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, The Many Hats Institute does not disclose personally identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
The Many Hats Institute 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 Many Hats Institute’s behalf or to provide services available at The Many Hats Institute’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 Many Hats Institute’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Many Hats Institute 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 Many Hats Institute discloses potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when The Many Hats Institute believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The Many Hats Institute, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an The Many Hats Institute website and have supplied your email address, The Many Hats Institute 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 The Many Hats Institute and our services. We primarily use our social media pages and 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. The Many Hats Institute takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information.
If The Many Hats Institute, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that The Many Hats Institute goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of The Many Hats Institute may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
