Effective: August 14, 2017
This policy describes how we handle the information we collect when you visit and use our sites, mobile applications, services, products, and content (“Services”).
What We May Collect
We collect information about Prairie Citizen pages you access, information about your mobile device (such as device or browser type), information you send us (such as an email address used to register or communicate with us or to comment on an article), submission information from Submittable, and patron information from Patreon.
When you use Prairie Fire Services, we may collect and store your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. We may use this information to fight spam; to personalize Prairie Citizen services; or to generate aggregate, nonidentifying information about how people use Prairie Citizen Services.
Email from Prairie Citizen
Sometimes we’ll send administrative emails about your submissions, service changes, or new policies. You can’t opt out of them. You can always opt out of nonadministrative emails, such as our newsletter.
We won’t email you to ask for your password or other account information. If you receive such an email, send it to us so we can investigate.
Disclosure of Your Information
As a rule, we don’t share your personal information outside the company.
We won’t sell your personal information.
We may share your personal information with third parties in limited circumstances, including (1) with your consent; (2) to a vendor or partner who meets our data protection standards; or (3) when we have a good-faith belief it is require by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other legal process.
If we’re going to share your information in response to legal process, we’ll give you advance notice so you can challenge it (for example, by seeking court intervention), unless we’re prohibited from doing so by law or court order. We will object to requests for information about uses of our site that we believe to be improper.
Cookies and Log Data
You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. If you choose not to accept cookies, you may not be able to some features of our Services.
We use encryption to protect data transmitted to and from our site. However, no data transmission over the Internet is 100 percent secure, so we can’t guarantee security. You use the Service at your own risk, and you’re responsible for taking reasonable measures to secure your information (like using a strong password).
