Media Panache, LLC (“Media Panache”) operates mediapanache.com. It is Media Panache’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites and mobile apps.

Website Visitors

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

Media Panache also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on mediapanache.com sites. Media Panache 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 Media Panache’s websites choose to interact with Media Panache in ways that require Media Panache to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Media Panache gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at mediapanache.com to provide an email address and street address. Those who engage in transactions with Media Panache – by purchasing items, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Media Panache collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Media Panache. Media Panache 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.

You may sign up to receive push notification messages from us. Media Panache does not collect any data from you without you first opting in to receive push notifications in your browser or our mobile app. After you have provided consent, Media Panache may collect information including: anonymized IP address, time zone, Operating System, browser, as well as the city, region and country location. To make sure messages reach the correct devices, Media Panache relies on a device token unique to your browser or mobile device. A device token is a unique identifier issued to the app or browser by the browser or operating system of your desktop or mobile device. While we may be able to access a list of the tokens, neither the browser, app, nor the tokens will reveal your identity, your unique device ID, or your contact information to us. If, at any time, you wish to stop receiving push notifications, simply adjust your phone or browser settings or remove the app.

Aggregated Statistics

Media Panache may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Media Panache may monitor the most popular items on the mediapanache.com site. Media Panache may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Media Panache does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

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