Quilt Block Dash Privacy Policy
 

Your privacy is important to Quilt Block Dash. This Privacy Policy and Agreement ("Privacy Policy") will tell you what information we collect about you and about your use of our website. It will explain how we protect that information and what choices you have about how it is used. We urge you to read this Privacy Policy carefully so you will clearly understand both our commitment to you and your privacy, and how we may collect and use information. By using the Quilt Block Dash site, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy. Further information is available at QuiltBlockDash@yahoo.com.

A. Information Collected by Quilt Block Dash or on Quilt Block Dash's Behalf

1. In General
Personally Identifiable Information (PII or Personal Information) is information that can be used to identify or contact you. When you visit our website, Quilt Block Dash collects only the Personal Information you provide to us. We collect Personal Information you provide to us in two general and distinct ways: (1) when you choose to participate in a Quilt Block Dash and (2) when you send emails to Quilt Block Dash. We also collect non-personal information from you and about your use of our website, emails, special promotions and newsletters we send to you, and websites of selected sponsors and advertisers.

2. Registration and Member Profile
You may view our website without registering or submitting any Personal Information. In that case, the only information we collect will be non-personal information. We use the Personal Information you provide through registration and focus group participation to respond to questions from you and/or inform you of significant changes to this Privacy Policy. We may also use this information to send you email with special promotions or emails with content we think may be of interest to you. At any time you can opt out of receiving such emails or unsubscribe to emails at the time you register.

3. Cookies
The use of cookies is common in the Internet industry. You will find them used on our web site as well as other major web sites. "Cookies" are small text files written to your computer. They help us know which pages on our site are popular, which are less so, and what technologies and Internet services our visitors are using. Knowing this information helps us continually improve the online experience for our visitors and clients. The non-personally identifying information we track with cookies is anonymous and is not used to identify or lead us back to, any particular visitor. Visitors to our site may have the option of disabling cookies via their browser preferences (most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies.) However, some features of our web site might not function properly or may be considerably slower if you disable cookies.

4. Emails to Quilt Block Dash
This Privacy Policy does not protect you when you send business information, ideas, concepts or inventions to Quilt Block Dash by email or via the form on the Quilt Block Dash contact page of this website.  If you want to keep business information, ideas, concepts or inventions private or proprietary, do not send them in an email to Quilt Block Dash. We try to answer every e-mail in a timely manner, but are not always able to do so. Privacy as it applies to the Internet is a dynamic, rapidly developing area. In the future, we may make significant changes to our privacy policy affecting the use of the Personal Information we collect. We will notify you by e-mail of any significant changes concerning our use of your Personal Information and obtain your "opt-in" consent to any significant new uses of your Personal Information if it was collected from you prior to a significant change in this policy. We may also make non-significant changes to our Privacy Policy that generally will not affect our use of your Personal Information and we generally will not notify you of these non-significant changes. You should check this posted Privacy Policy for any non-significant changes. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy or any revised policy, please exit the site immediately.

5.  We do not wish to obtain Personal Information from individuals under the age of 18.

6.  Third Party Sites.
This policy only addresses our activities from our servers. Other sites (including those third party sites or services you may visit through Quilt Block Dash) may have their own policies and practices, which we do not control, and thus are not addressed by this policy.

You can also opt out of having us disclose your Personal Information to our third party partners that provide certain features of the service (in which case you will not be able to access these features). To the extent that such information is also stored in other databases, we cannot always ensure that such corrections or deletions will reach the other databases. If you wish to have information you provided to us online removed from our records, please provide us with the information as you submitted it to us, as follows:

Postal:
Quilt Block Dash
PO Box 100
Medina, TX  78055
or by email at QuiltBlockDash@yahoo.com

We will use all reasonable efforts to ensure that your information is removed from our records. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you should understand that Personal Information previously disclosed by us to third parties before you delete or change such information in our database will be used according to such third parties' privacy policies.

Security.
We use industry-standard methods to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access. Among other techniques, we store such information on a computer in a secure location, and we restrict the number of employees internally who can access such data. We are not responsible if some other third party gains access to the database or your membership information by evading our security measures or otherwise obtains access to the database, your Personal Information.

Amendments.
Amendments to this policy will be posted at this URL and will be effective when posted.

Further Information.
We cannot ensure that your private communications and other Personal Information will not be disclosed to third parties. By way of example, without limiting the foregoing, we may be forced to disclose information to the government under certain circumstances, or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or we might disclose your information to other sites as part of offering additional functionality to you. Additionally, we can (and you authorize us to) disclose your Personal Information to private entities, law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate. Therefore, we do not promise that your Personal Information or private communications will remain private. You acknowledge that this privacy policy is part of our Membership and you agree to be bound by all of its terms and conditions.
