DNA Hunters Privacy Policy

Updated:  May 23, 2018

At the website of DNA Hunters, LLC (“Website”), we have two fundamental principles that we follow when it comes to your privacy:

• We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
• We don’t share your personal information with anyone except in accordance with law.

Information we collect

DNA Hunters, LLC is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We only have access to personally-identifying information (PII) if you voluntarily give it to us directly or by email. For example, if you complete the Contact Form, you’re asked to provide PII, such as name and email address.

We use the information we collect when you provide PII in the following ways:

• to respond to your requests and
• to improve the website.

We don’t and won’t sell or rent your PII to anyone.  We won’t share any of your PII with any third party outside of our organization.  However, we will disclose your PII if we’re ever required to do so by law; that hasn’t ever happened to date.

We also collect aggregate data about visitors (browser type, language preference, referring site, date and time of visit and the like), through services like Google Analytics or WordPress that track this information for us, and retain it in log form. This information isn’t linked to anything personally identifiable, but we don’t sell or rent any of it to anyone either.

Note that WordPress is a service of Automattic, Inc., 132 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, CA 94107, and you can review Automattic’s privacy policies for more information.  Google Analytics is a service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, and you can review Google’s privacy policy for more information.

Protecting your information

The Website is scanned on a regular basis for security holes and known vulnerabilities in order to make your visit to our site as safe as possible.

Your rights to your information

International privacy rules give you rights over PII collected for Website purposes, including the right to withdraw any consent previously given; the right to review data that’s been collected; the right to correct or update your data; the right to have any portable information transferred to another data controller; and the right to have any PII erased. Feel free to contact us by email if you want to to exercise any of these rights and don’t see a way to do so by simply clicking a link.

Third-party links

This website, through its many blog posts, has a lot of links to other websites. We’re not responsible for their content or their privacy practices. If you click through to another website, be sure to read its privacy policies before using that other website. We’re also not responsible if any content from this website is republished elsewhere without our permission.

Use of Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns.

• Understand and save your preferences for future visits.
• Let you share blog posts with social networks like Facebook or Twitter.
• Compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interactions.

You can change your browser settings to warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can turn off all cookies. That may impact some ways the site works for you (you can’t post a comment if you turn off cookies, for example), but you’ll still be able to read the Website content.

Privacy Policy Changes
