Like many other Web sites, www.simplicityinthesouth.com makes use of log files. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol ( IP ) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider ( ISP ), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track users movement around the site, and gather demographic information.

Your privacy is very important to us. At Simplicity in the South, we have a few fundamental principles that we follow: 

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.) 
  • 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 Simplicity in the South’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites. 

Website Visitors 

Like most website operators, Simplicity in the South 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. Simplicity in the South’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use its website. From time to time, we may release non personally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. 

Simplicity in the South also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Simplicity in the South 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 Simplicity in the South’s website choose to interact with our website in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Simplicity in the South gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive Simplicity in the South updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Simplicity in the South collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with us. Simplicity in the South 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. 

Aggregated Statistics 

Simplicity in the South may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, we may monitor the most popular pages on the list25.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. We may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, we do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. 

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information 

Simplicity in the South 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 Simplicity in the South’s behalf or to provide services available at our 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 Simplicity in the South’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. We 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, Simplicity in the South discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Simplicity in the South, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of our website and have supplied your email address, Simplicity in the South 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 Simplicity in the South and our products. 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. Simplicity in the South takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
