Your privacy is critically important to us. At Sierra Leone Live, we have a few fundamental principles:
- 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 one of our services.
- In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.
Leone Connect operates several websites including Sierra Leone Live.net, sierraleonelive.com, leonehost.com and Sierra Leone Live.com. It’s Sierra Leone Live’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Sierra Leone Live 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. Sierra Leone Live’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Sierra Leone Live’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Sierra Leone Live may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Sierra Leone Live also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Sierra Leone Live 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 and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Sierra Leone Live’s websites choose to interact with Sierra Leone Live in ways that require Sierra Leone Live to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Sierra Leone Live gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at any of our websites to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Sierra Leone Live – by purchasing goods and services, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Sierra Leone Live collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Sierra Leone Live. Sierra Leone Live 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.
What we do with the information we collect
We will use the personal information we collect to:
- a) provide our services;
- b) identify you when you sign-in to your account and verify that your account is not being used by others;
- c) carry out research and analysis so we can better understand and serve you;
- d) personalize content, advertisements, or links relevant to your geographic area or device-type;
- e) gather broad anonymous demographic data (such as the number of visitors from a geographic area);
- f) communicate with you in relation to your account and our services, and the services of companies that we may partner with from time to time;
- g) enforce compliance with our Terms or other agreements that we have in place with you (or organizations you represent);
- h) verify and carry out financial transactions in relation to payments and subscriptions you make with us, and collect payment from you; and
- i) co-operate with any government, industry, or regulatory authorities.
How to delete your personal data from our site
Sierra Leone Live may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Sierra Leone Live may monitor the most popular blogs on any of its site. Sierra Leone Live may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Sierra Leone Live does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Sierra Leone Live 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 Sierra Leone Live’s behalf or to provide services available at Sierra Leone Live’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 Sierra Leone Live’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Sierra Leone Live 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, Sierra Leone Live discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Sierra Leone Live believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Sierra Leone Live, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Sierra Leone Live website and have supplied your email address, Sierra Leone Live 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 Sierra Leone Live and our products. 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. Sierra Leone Live takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Sierra Leone Live, or substantially all its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Sierra Leone Live goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that are transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that any acquirer of Sierra Leone Live may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to our any of our websites 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.
