Information Collection and Use
Penelope’s Odyssey is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. We collect information from our users at several different points on our website, including users' name and email addresses to allow them to post comments on our site and to subscribe to our various news feeds.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site, and is used to provide an improved user experience while using our site. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user may be limited in some areas of our site.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. We use a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.
If a user wishes to subscribe to our mailing list, we ask for contact information such as name and email address.
This website takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, the information is protected both online and off-line. When our donation or order forms asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with SSL. While on such a secure page, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just 'surfing'. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only those who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. In addition, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a highly secured environment. If you have any questions about the security at our website, please contact us via the contact form on this site.
