Certain exception disclosures
We may disclose your information if necessary to protect our legal rights, if the information relates to actual or threatened harmful conduct, or Ellen Himic has good faith belief that such action is necessary to (1) conform to the requirements of law or comply with governmental orders, court orders, or legal process served on Ellen Himic or (2) to protect and defend the property or rights of Ellen Himic, the users of its website or the public. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk protection. If Ellen Himic should ever file for bankruptcy or merge with another company, we may sell the information you provide to us on the Ellen Himic website to a third party or share your personal information with the company we merge with.
How do we protect information we collect?
We offer secure web pages to collect certain kinds of user information and we store certain kinds of data in encrypted form. We follow reasonable technical and management practices to help protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of data stored on our system. While no computer system is completely secure, we believe the measures implemented by our web site reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved. Ellen Himic servers use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), an encryption technology that works with Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, and AOL's browser, so that only Ellen Himic can read a customer's personal information.
How long do we keep user information?
We generally keep user data on our server or in our archives for as long as we reasonably need it. We may alter this practice according to changing requirements. For example, we may delete some data if needed to free up storage space. We may keep other data for longer periods if the law requires it. In addition, information posted in a public forum could stay in the public domain indefinitely.
Data management requests are administered in an orderly manner to the extent feasible and within our direct control. Note: we have greater control over recently collected data than for archived data. Once data is removed from the system and archived, it may not be feasible to accommodate specific requests. In those cases, our general data retention policy applies.
