Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. At Yarn Society we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • 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 Yarn Society’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

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

Yarn Society also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on ssite. Yarn Society only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Yarn Society’s websites choose to interact with Yarn Society in ways that require Yarn Society to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Yarn Society gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who wish to receive Yarn Society updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Yarn Society collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Yarn Society. Yarn Society 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.

Yarn Society may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. However, Yarn Society does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

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