jonathanlivingstonseagull.com (“jonathanlivingstonseagull.com,” “we,” or “us”) is committed to providing a welcoming, inspiring, and safe experience for our users. This Privacy Policy applies to and governs each user’s (“you,” “your,” or “user”) access to and use of our website located at jonathanlivingstonseagull.com (the “Site”). This Privacy Policy also applies to any information collected, stored or used by us by other means—for example, if you email us or provide us information over the phone.

Together with our Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) and the Policies referenced therein, this Privacy Policy is a legally binding agreement between you and us (the “User Agreement”). Please read it carefully as it contains important information about collection and use of your information. We may, from time to time, unilaterally modify the User Agreement, including this Privacy Policy, without notice to you, so it is important that you review this Privacy Policy and the User Agreement every time you use this Site.

Please note that by using this Site, you represent and warrant to us that you are at least 13 years old; and you are permitted under the applicable rules, regulations, statutes, agency or court decisions or other acts of government (“Laws”) to access this Site.

By accessing or using the Site, you are indicating your agreement with, and intent to be bound by, the terms of this Privacy Policy, including regarding the collection, processing, storage, transfer and use   of your Personal Information (as defined below). Please do not access the Site if you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

  1. Information We Collect. 

    1. Information You Provide to Us:  

      1. Personal Information. For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, we define “Personal Information” as your first name or initial and last name, your email address, and any other information that by itself or in connection with other information we collect and store is capable of identifying a natural human person, like you.  We will collect and store any Personal Information you provide to us. For example, to use some features of the Site, we ask you to provide an email address. We may also ask you to provide other Personal Information in connection with other features on the Site and, if you choose to provide it, we will collect and store it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Please note: it is your choice to provide us with this information. If you choose to access and use the Site as a guest, we will not collect any Personal Information about you, although we may collect other information as described in this Privacy Policy.

      2. Public Information. If you choose to use some features of the Site, you may be asked to select a user name and a character to represent you on the Site. Unless you indicate otherwise, the user name will be visible to all other users (including guest users) and to us. We will collect and store this user name; however, we strongly encourage you not to include any Personal Information in your user name

    2. Information You Provide to Other Users. You may choose to disclose information about yourself in information provided to JLS or the Site, or in our on-line chat rooms or other multi-user communication functions available on the Site. We strongly encourage you not to disclose Personal Information about yourself. We will collect and store all information submitted to JLS or the Site, including all chats, podcasts and similar interactions between and among users, as well as any information contained in those interactions. 

    3. Information Collected Automatically:

      1. The Site uses passive tracking technologies to log anonymous, non-identifiable information such as your device IP address, browser type, operating system, screen resolution and Site usage (for example what pages are accessed, how often they are accessed, referring/exit pages and URLs). We may also employ “cookies” or similar technologies that collect similar types of anonymous information.  We will never attempt to connect this automatically collected information with your Personal Information and we will never “follow” you and collect information about you once you leave the Site. 

      2. You can always set your browser’s privacy settings to reject cookies, which will prevent those cookies from collecting the information described above. However, certain features of the Site may not be available to you or may not function correctly if you do not accept cookies.

    4. Social Media Integration: We may provide you the opportunity to connect your user profile or account with other social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. As discussed more completely below, we do not have any control over any third-party’s use of your Personal Information or any other information you may make available on those platforms, so please be sure to read the applicable Privacy Policies carefully to determine whether you want to connect.

  2. Privacy and Protection of Children and Legal Minors. We take protection of the privacy of legal minors very, very seriously and in order to adhere to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, we will not knowingly collect any Personal Information from individuals under 13.  If we learn that we have collected Personal Information from an individual under 13 we will immediately remove such Personal Information from the Site and our systems.

  3. How We Use Information and When We Disclose It

    1. Use. We will use (including collect and store) Personal Information, and other information we collect about you in accordance with this Privacy Policy as necessary to:

This may include electronic or paper records, including the creation and maintenance of archival copies of electronic data or back-up media or servers.

    2. Disclosure of Personal Information. We may disclose your Personal Information and any other information we collect about you:

      1. To third-party companies or individuals providing services to us or acting on our behalf, such as companies providing technological or fulfillment services, financial institutions and similar entities, all to the extent necessary to operate the Site and provide you with the features you request. All such third-parties are required by us to adhere to our Privacy Policy or to similarly restrictive privacy or confidentiality obligations;

      2. When required to do so by Laws, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena;

      3. To law enforcement agencies or other public agencies (including schools or children services) in response to their request(s) or if we believe that such disclosure may prevent the instigation of a crime; 

      4. As we deem necessary to protect the Site, our users (including you), our property and our personnel, including as necessary to enforce the terms of the User Agreement; and

      5. To a prospective purchaser of jonathanlivingstonseagull.com acquiring all or most of the assets relating to jonathanlivingstonseagull.com, to the extent permitted by Laws. 

    3. Other Disclosures of Personal Information to Third-Parties. As you can see, we will never sell, transfer or otherwise disclose your Personal Information to any third-parties for their own commercial, marketing or promotional purposes without additional communication. If we intend to collect and disclose Personal Information for such purposes, including if certain features on the Site require such disclosure of your Personal Information, we will notify you first, such as on the Site at the time we collect the Personal Information.

    4. Disclosure of Non-Personal Information or Anonymous/Aggregated Information. We may disclose to third parties certain aggregate information contained in your user profile or account or other aggregated, anonymous information (such as that collected automatically) as we deem appropriate for our internal business purposes, including improving the Site and adding or modifying features.

  4. Opting Out.  We give you control over how much Personal Information you provide to us and how we are permitted to use it. The simplest way to exercise this control is to not provide us with Personal Information you do not want us to collect, store and use as set forth in this Privacy Policy. However, subject to our ability to retain certain Personal Information and our ability to disclose Personal Information, each as described above, you can also control certain aspects of how we use your Personal Information:
