Your privacy is very important to us. At The Aperitivo Project, LLC dba Aura & Olive (henceforth referred to as "The Aperitivo Project") we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. And we never sell it to third parties.
- 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 our site.
It is The Aperitivo Project’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
Like most website operators, The Aperitivo Project 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. The Aperitivo Project’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The Aperitivo Project’s visitors use its website. From time to time, The Aperitivo Project may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
The Aperitivo Project also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. The Aperitivo Project 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 The Aperitivo Project’s website choose to interact with The Aperitivo Project in ways that require The Aperitivo Project to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Aperitivo Project gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. For those who wish to receive The Aperitivo Project updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, The Aperitivo Project collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Aperitivo Project. The Aperitivo Project 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 Aperitivo Project may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, The Aperitivo Project may monitor the most popular pages on the site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. The Aperitivo Project may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, The Aperitivo Project does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
PROTECTION OF CERTAIN PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
The Aperitivo Project 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 Aperitivo Project’s behalf or to provide services available at The Aperitivo Project’s website, 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 Aperitivo Project’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Aperitivo Project 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 Aperitivo Project discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when The Aperitivo Project believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The Aperitivo Project, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an The Aperitivo Project website and have supplied your email address, The Aperitivo Project 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 Aperitivo Project and our products or services. We primarily use our blog 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 Aperitivo Project 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 Aperitivo Project, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that The Aperitivo Project goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of The Aperitivo Project may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
From time to time, The Aperitivo Project participates in affiliate marketing and may allow affiliate links to be included on some of our pages. This means that we may earn a commission if/when you click on or make purchases via affiliate links. As a policy, The Aperitivo Project will only affiliate with products and services we believe will provide value to our customers and followers.
The Aperitivo Project will inform you when one of the links constitutes an affiliate link. You recognize that it remains your personal responsibility to investigate whether any affiliate offers are right for you and will benefit you. You will not rely on any recommendation, reference, or information provided by The Aperitivo Project but will instead conduct your own investigation and will rely upon your investigation to decide whether to purchase the affiliate product or service.
Comments and other content submitted to The Aperitivo Project or the Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
