As used in this policy, “personal information” means information that would allow a party to identify you, such as your name, alias, address or location, email address, telephone number, or social security number.
Section 1. Our Principles
- Privacy policies should be human readable, comprehensive, and easy to locate;
- Only the minimum amount of personal information reasonably necessary to provide you with our Services should be collected and maintained, and only for so long as reasonably needed or required;
- Personal information you provide through our Services, or that we gather as a result of your use of our Services, should not be provided voluntarily (without your permission) to anyone else unless required; and
- If we are required to provide a third party with your personal information (whether by subpoena or otherwise), then provided we have collected and retained an email address for you, we will use reasonable means to notify you promptly of that event, unless prohibited by law or we are otherwise advised not to notify you on the advice of legal counsel.
Section 2. Personal Information Washington Wills Collects
At this time, we will only collect personal information through the Services in the following ways:
- when you voluntarily provide us with your personal information by including it in an email you send us, within a contact form you submit, or within a survey form you submit; and
- when you leave a comment on the blog we operate.
Section 3. What Washington Wills Does with Personal Information
Emails. We use the personal information you provide to us when you send us email or submit a contact form in order to respond to your communication.
Blog Comments. All comments contributed to the blog we operate, once approved for publication, are visible to the general public. Therefore, your name, alias, and/or email address will be visible to the general public in connection with comments you contribute to the blog we operate. Any other personal information you include in such comments will also be visible to the general public.
Section 4. Disclosures of Personal Information
If we are required to provide a third party with your personal information (whether by subpoena or otherwise), then provided we have collected and retained an email address for you, we will use reasonable means to notify you promptly of that event unless prohibited by law or Washington Wills is otherwise advised not to notify you on the advice of legal counsel.
Section 5. Security of Personal Information Collected via the Services
Washington Wills has implemented reasonable measures to protect against unauthorized access to and unlawful interception or processing of personal information that Washington Wills stores and controls. However, no website or online service provider can fully eliminate security risks. Third parties may circumvent our security measures to unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Provided we have collected and retained an email address for you, we will within a reasonable time send you notice if any such security breach occurs.
Section 6. Data Usage and Other Non-Personal Information
Non-Personal Browsing Information We Collect. When you use the Websites, we collect information indirectly and automatically (through, for example, the use of your IP address, session cookies, and cookies of longer duration) about your activities while using the Websites and information about the browser you are using. We utilize the services of third parties who provide server analytics services to collect and analyze the data collected as described in this paragraph.
Google’s Required Disclosures. We have implemented the following Google Analytics Advertising Features:
- Remarketing with Google Analytics;
- Google Display Network Impression Reporting;
- Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting; and
- Integrated services that require Google Analytics to collect data for advertising purposes, including the collection of data via advertising cookies and identifiers.
Neither we nor any third-party vendors use first-party cookies or other first-party identifiers together with third-party cookies or other third-party identifiers together. You can opt out of the Google Analytics Advertising Features we use, including through Ads Settings, Ad Settings for mobile apps, or any other available means (for example, the NAI’s consumer opt-out ). You are encouraged to view Google Analytics’ currently available opt-outs for the web.
No Linking. We will not intentionally link browsing information or information from our server logs to your personal information. We use this information for internal purposes only, such as to help understand how the Services are being used, to improve our Services, and for systems administration purposes.
No Selling or Sharing. Washington Wills does not sell or otherwise voluntarily provide the non-personal browsing information we collect about you or your website usage to third parties.
Notice. If Washington Wills is required to provide a third party with your non-personal browsing information (whether by subpoena or otherwise), then Washington Wills will use reasonable means to notify you promptly of that event, unless Washington Wills is prohibited by law from doing so or is otherwise advised not to notify you on the advice of legal counsel.
