OUR COMMITMENT TO YOUR PRIVACY
SHARING OF INFORMATION
We may share or disclose your personally identifiable information if such disclosure is necessary to: (a) comply with legal process (such as a court order) or other legal requirements of any governmental authority; (b) protect our rights or property; (c) protect the interest of users of the Services, other than you, or any other person; or (d) operate or conduct maintenance and repair of our services or equipment, as authorized by law.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Northern Woodlands may transfer, sell or assign information concerning your use of the Services, including without limitation, personally identifiable information, to third parties, as a result of the sale, merger, consolidation, change in control, transfer of substantial assets, reorganization or liquidation of Northern Woodlands. In the event of such transfer, sale or assignment, notice will be given in accordance with the Notification of Changes section, below.
THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW IT IS USED
You make the decision whether or not to proceed with any activity that requests personally identifiable information, but please be aware that if you choose not to provide the information requested, you may not be able to complete certain transactions with Northern Woodlands.
Sometimes, such as when you subscribe to a service, order a product or make other requests or inquiries, we will ask for specific information about you in order to provide that product or service to you or respond to your requests or inquiries. We may collect certain personally identifiable information such as contact information, including name, e-mail address, work and home telephone numbers, fax number, credit card information and a physical postal address. We may also collect information regarding your personal or professional interests, demographics, detailed contact preferences or other personally identifiable information. Data you submit online may also be combined with other information you provide through other means of communication, such as postal mail. We may use any information that we collect, including personally identifiable information, to tailor subsequent communications to you, including promotional communications, to administer and operate the Services and to provide and continually improve Northern Woodlands offerings.
As is true of most web sites and mobile app providers, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, referring pages, date/time stamp and click stream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the Services, to track users’ movements around the Services and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.
NOTE ABOUT COOKIES
We and/or our third-party marketing and analytics providers may also employ web beacons or clear gifs (a.k.a. web beacons/web bugs), images and scripts that help better manage content on the Services. Web beacons are tiny, clear graphics that are embedded invisibly on web pages. They are used to understand and monitor online movements of users so that we may better understand and improve their experiences on the Services. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, web beacons are not stored on a user’s computer or device. We do not tie the information gathered to your personally identifiable information.
Like other aggregated information from the Services that does not identify individual Users, we may analyze and share non-personally identifiable information collected through cookies with Northern Woodlands subsidiaries, affiliates, and third parties, including our business partners and service providers, and in marketing materials and public disclosures.
We may use your personally identifiable information for purposes not directly related to products and/or services you have requested or other requests or inquiries you have made, such as to send you e-mail communications, Northern Woodlands’ newsletter, and information on new offerings unless you direct us not to do so by opting-out at the point where the information is collected. Additionally, you may opt-out from use of your personally identifiable information collected online for the purpose of sending such promotional communications at any time by sending an e-mail or by following the unsubscribe instruction contained within each of the newsletters or promotional communications you receive. We will retain your information for as long as needed for the purposes for which it was collected, and in accordance with our retention policies, as applicable.
We will retain and use your information as appropriate to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
Northern Woodlands may provide you with links to other websites that may be operated by companies not affiliated with Northern Woodlands. Please be aware that Northern Woodlands is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. Northern Woodlands does not endorse them or make any representations about them or any information, services, products or materials found on them. Linked websites may have their own privacy policies or notices, which we strongly suggest you review if you visit any linked websites. We are not responsible for the content of any websites that are not affiliated with Northern Woodlands, any use of those websites, or the privacy practices of those websites.
DATA TRANSFER AND SECURITY
We will take steps intended to safeguard personally identifiable information stored on our systems from unauthorized access or disclosure. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online services, and you do so at your own risk.
HOW TO ACCESS AND CORRECT YOUR INFORMATION
Northern Woodlands strives to keep your personally identifiable information accurate and up-to-date. Should you find inaccuracies in your personally identifiable information and wish to amend, correct or delete the same, please contact us through one of the communication methods described below in the Contacting Us section. To opt out of all future marketing and promotional correspondence from Northern Woodlands, please email us or follow the instructions contained in the e-mail communications you receive. Please note that we may continue to send automated renewal reminders to existing subscribers for a limited period of time following receipt of your opt out request.
NOTIFICATION OF CHANGES
Northern Woodlands does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from users under the age of 13. Children under 13 should not send any information about themselves to Northern Woodlands. If a child under 13 submits information through any part of the Services, and Northern Woodlands becomes aware that the person submitting the information is a child, we will attempt to delete this information as soon as possible.
