Privacy Policy and GDPR Compliance

Your privacy and GDPR compliance are very important to us. At BelEdit Consulting 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.

BelEdit Consulting operates several websites including beledit.com, beledit.be and write-for-mobile.com. It is BelEdit Consulting’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, BelEdit Consulting 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. BelEdit Consulting’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how BelEdit Consulting’s visitors use its website.

BelEdit Consulting also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. BelEdit Consulting 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 BelEdit Consulting’s websites choose to interact with BelEdit Consulting in ways that require BelEdit Consulting to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that BelEdit Consulting 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 BelEdit Consulting updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, BelEdit Consulting collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with BelEdit Consulting. BelEdit Consulting 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, such as submitting a contact form. (You can contact us by telephone or email if you prefer.)

Aggregated Statistics

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

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

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

Cookies

BelEdit Consulting uses cookies to help BelEdit Consulting identify and track visitors, their usage of BelEdit Consulting website, and their website access preferences. BelEdit Consulting visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using BelEdit Consulting’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of BelEdit Consulting’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If BelEdit Consulting, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that BelEdit Consulting goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of BelEdit Consulting may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

BelEdit Consulting websites do not carry ads and so no information whatsoever is shared with any advertisers.

Comments

Comments and other content submitted to Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.

Although most changes are likely to be minor, BelEdit Consulting may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in BelEdit Consulting’s sole discretion. BelEdit Consulting encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
