Our privacy policy. 

You're looking at the legal? awesome. 

 

Here's the Intro:

Here at Caravan, LLC, we’re looking to gain your trust in our mission and company through honesty and transparency. Before we get into the full privacy policy set out below, we want to offer a few basic notes to make our process as straightforward as possible:

We’re a small, Massachusetts-based company hoping to create cross-pollination between brands and communities. We want to focus on our ethos of providing, expanding and improving cultural engagement, participatory experience and creative exploration. Our website and newsletters are meant to offer everyday people insight into our business, not cause any discomfort or concern about information obtained.

To put it simply, we’re not selling your information to third parties for their tracking, spam messaging, or advertisement efforts. We do not have ads on the site. Any personal information received is something you yourself provide; even then, we’re keeping that information privately in-house. If you don’t want to receive our emails, please feel free to let us know.

Your privacy and sense of security is important to us. We hope you have enjoyed using our site and will visit again soon.

 

and here's the nitty gritty: 

Caravan, LLC (the “Company,” “we” or “us”) has created this privacy policy in order to demonstrate our commitment to users’ privacy. The following describes how we treat information received about visitors (“you”) when visiting this Company site.

The effective date of this privacy policy is 3.10.17.

Information We Collect

When you contact us, we will collect “personally identifiable” information and “non-personally identifiable” information from you. Only persons who provide us with the requested personally identifiable information will be eligible to utilize these services.

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen.

Personally Identifiable Information: “Personally identifiable” information is information that we collect from you such as your name, employer, telephone and fax numbers, and e-mail address.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information. “Non-personally” identifiable information is information that we collect from you that cannot be used to identify or contact you, such as your site browsing patterns or demographic information.

How We Collect Information

Personally Identifiable Information. We collect personally identifiable information about you when you or your employer actively give us this information. Examples of this include when you respond to our polls and surveys, give us feedback, and request information.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information. We also collect non-personally identifiable information from you by tracking your use of the Company site, often through the use of cookies. A “cookie” is a small data file that is sent to your browser from a web server that you access and stored on your computer’s hard drive. This data file may contain information (such as a unique user ID) that a web site may use to track certain things. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your e-mail address or other personally identifiable information. However, once you choose to furnish the site with personally identifiable information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie.

Preference and options configurations in your browser determine if and how a cookie will be accepted. You can change those configurations on your computer if you desire through your browser settings. By changing your preferences, you can choose to accept all cookies, or have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject cookies, please be aware that some parts of the Site may not function properly.

As part of their basic functionality, most browsers provide information about the operating system, web browser version, and Internet Protocol address of the computer station they are running on and the domain name of your Internet service provider (. This information is available to every web site a user visits.

How We Use the Information

Personally Identifiable Information. We use your information for customer service, such as to provide you with information you may request, and to send you our e-mail publication, newsletters, surveys or other correspondence or information we think may be of interest to you. We may also use the information that you provide to communicate information about new products and services. We also use your Information for internal research purposes. This allows us to better understand your needs and to provide you with better service.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information: We sometimes use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our site and to enable us to personalize your Internet experience. We also may use this information in the aggregate to analyze how visitors and subscribers use and navigate our web site, as well as to offer you products, programs, or services.

Additionally, we may take your personally identifiable information and make it non-personally identifiable, either by combining it with information about other individuals (aggregating your information with information about other individuals), or by removing characteristics (such as your name) that make the information personally identifiable to you (de-personalizing your information). Given the nature of this information, there are no restrictions under this Privacy Policy upon our right to aggregate or de-personalize your personal information.

How We Share Information With Others

We do not sell, rent or trade your Personally Identifiable Information to third parties.

We may disclose and use your information in special circumstances where we believe in good faith that such disclosures are required by law, including, for example, to comply with a court order or subpoena.

In the event that all of our business assets are transferred to or acquired by another company, your information may be one of the transferred assets.

Otherwise, only Caravan, LLC will use or analyze your Personally Identifiable Information.
