Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy:

Nicer Nails ("Nicer Nails") operates nicernails.org and may operate other websites. It is Nicer Nails's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

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

Nicer Nails also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on nicernails.org blogs/sites. Nicer Nails 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 commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Nicer Nails's websites choose to interact with Nicer Nails in ways that require Nicer Nails to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Nicer Nails gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at nicernails.org to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Nicer Nails are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Nicer Nails collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Nicer Nails. Nicer Nails 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.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Nicer Nails's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Nicer Nails 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, Nicer Nails discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Nicer Nails believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Nicer Nails, third parties or the public at large.
