Your privacy is very important to us. At Rum Owd Dew 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.

Website Visitors

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

Rum Owd Dew also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Rum Owd Dew 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 Rum Owd Dew’s websites choose to interact with Rum Owd Dew in ways that require Rum Owd Dew to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Rum Owd Dew 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. Those who wish to receive Rum Owd Dew updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Rum Owd Dew collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Rum Owd Dew. Rum Owd Dew 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.

We primarily use our various product blogs 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. Rum Owd Dew takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
