Privacy to visitors of DeaneOgden.com is of utmost importance to both Deane and his company, Deane Ogden Creative, LLC. This privacy policy explains what type of information is collected from you when you visit DeaneOgden.com and how that information may be used.

Gathering of Information
DeaneOgden.com collects personally-identifying information (such as your name, email address, address, telephone number and/or credit card information) from DeaneOgden.com only if you choose to provide that information to us.

DeaneOgden.com asks visitors to provide certain personal information when they email a page of the DeaneOgden.com website to another person, when they subscribe to or participate in a Deane Ogden podcast, and when they register for any DeaneOgden.com online list or email subscription. DeaneOgden.com also may ask visitors to provide personal information in other limited circumstances specified at the time the information is gathered.

Like all other Web servers, DeaneOgden.com’s Web server automatically creates log files for each visitor who accesses the site. These “access logs” allow us to make our site more useful to our visitors. The access logs do NOT record a visitor’s name, address, phone number, credit card numbers, or any other personally-identifying information. Rather, they contain some or all of the following information:

  • The Internet Protocol Address (IP Address) of the machine which accessed our website.
  • The date of the visit.
  • The time of the visit.
  • The path taken through our website.
  • The type of computer and browser being used.
  • A list of files downloaded or viewed.
  • The amount of time spent listening to streaming audio, video or embedded social media feeds and streams.
  • Any errors encountered.

Cookies
DeaneOgden.com also uses ‘cookies’ to collect information. A cookie is a string of characters that can be written to a file on the user’s hard drive when the user visits a website. Only the website that set the cookie can read it, and it can only be used as a record keeping device to store information that the site already has. It cannot, for example, be used to read other information from the user’s hard drive.

DeaneOgden.com uses cookies to track users’ activity through the site in order to improve the site’s architecture, to offer the user interactive features that would not be possible without them, and to recall specific information to save the user time during subsequent visits to the site. For example, cookies allow DeaneOgden.com to remember your email list subscription preferences so that you are not asked repeatedly, upon subsequent visits, to sign up after already having done so. Some Deane Ogden podcast sponsorship service vendors, who could periodically purchase advertising services on DeaneOgden.com, may also use their own cookies. If you wish to prevent certain or all cookies from being set to your hard drive, you may disable them in your browser’s preferences, although your browser might then be unable to accommodate certain functionalities on DeaneOgden.com.

Use of Information
The use of personally-identifying information is limited to the following: responding to user emails; listing name and location (city, state and/or country) information provided by users when publishing user emails or other submissions; fulfillment of subscriptions; contest management; editorial purposes such as contacting users for an online survey; sending communications, including marketing and promotional communications from Deane Ogden Creative, LLC companies to users who have ‘opted in’ to the receipt of such communications; and other purposes specified at the time the information is gathered.

In addition, if you send an email or contact communication through DeaneOgden.com or through any of Deane Ogden’s podcasts, we may print that Submission, or an excerpt from it, on DeaneOgden.com, read it on air, or otherwise publish it in any other medium, together with your name and location (city, state and/or country) if you provide that information to us.

Personally-identifying information collected by DeaneOgden.com is provided to outside parties, DeaneOgden.com service vendors (such as DeaneOgden.com’s email list manager), and other third parties when the user specifically consents to such distribution. In these circumstances, the information is provided for the sole purpose of — and only to the extent necessary for — delivering the requested information or goods to the user, delivering communications from DeaneOgden.com to users who have ‘opted in’ to the receipt of these communications, or serving other internal Deane Ogden Creative, LLC company purposes.

DeaneOgden.com also may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or if it believes that such action is necessary to (a) comply with the law or with legal process, (b) protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the DeaneOgden.com website, or (c) protect the personal safety or property of DeaneOgden.com website users, the public or Deane Ogden Creative, LLC and its employees.

If you do not want your personally-identifying information to be collected or used for any of these purposes, you can simply ‘opt out’ according to the process described below.

DeaneOgden.com uses non-identifying aggregate information to analyze use of and better design the DeaneOgden.com website and to share with third parties in aggregate form only as appropriate. For example, we may tell a third party that a certain number of users accessed a particular audio stream on our website. However, we will not disclose any information that could be used to identify those users.

Security
DeaneOgden.com has in place what we believe to be appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. In the event that credit card information is provided to DeaneOgden.com for subscription purposes, it is protected against unauthorized use by 128-bit encryption and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) security features, which scramble your personal information so that only your web browser and our website’s server can decipher it.

Children
Under 13: If you are under 13 years of age, please do not send any information about yourself, including your name, address or e-mail address. If we discover that we have collected any personally-identifying information from a child under the age of 13, we will remove that information from our database as soon as possible.

13-18: Unless otherwise specified, you must be at least 18 years old in order to participate in any online contests. Visitors between the ages of 13 and 18 must obtain permission from their parents or guardians before ordering Deane Ogden Creative, LLC merchandise, including that of Rebel Creative, ON THE HIT, and SCOREcast, and must obtain parental permission before sending any personally-identifying information to DeaneOgden.com.

Please contact us to a) correct or update any personal information in the DeaneOgden.com database that you state is erroneous, b) opt-out of future communications from DeaneOgden.com or c) request DeaneOgden.com to make reasonable efforts to remove your personal information from its online database. The user understands that it may be impossible to delete personal information entirely because of backups and records of deletions.
