Privacy Policy

SurelyLorraine.com (as administered by Surely Lorraine and Motorway One Music, info@surelylorraine.com) refer to the SurelyLorraine.com website domain and operations therein.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, SurelyLorraine.com 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. 

SurelyLorraine.com’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how SurelyLorraine.com visitors use its website. From time to time, SurelyLorraine.com may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website or number of subscribers to its newsletter.

SurelyLorraine.com also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. SurelyLorraine.com does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to SurelyLorraine.com choose to interact with SurelyLorraine.com in ways that require SurelyLorraine.com to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that SurelyLorraine.com gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, visitors who want to subscribe to the Surely Lorraine newsletter are asked for their email address. In each case, SurelyLorraine.com collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with SurelyLorraine.com. SurelyLorraine.com 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.

Aggregated Statistics

SurelyLorraine.com may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, SurelyLorraine.com may reveal how many downloads a particular webpage got. However, SurelyLorraine.com does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

SurelyLorraine.com discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on SurelyLorraine.com’s behalf or to provide services available at SurelyLorraine.com, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using SurelyLorraine.com, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. 

SurelyLorraine.com will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its affiliated organizations, as described above, SurelyLorraine.com discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when SurelyLorraine.com believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SurelyLorraine.com, third parties, or the public at large. 

If you are a subscriber to SurelyLorraine.com and have supplied your email address, SurelyLorraine.com may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with SurelyLorraine.com. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), SurelyLorraine.com reserves the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. SurelyLorraine.com takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Any personally-identifying information collected via the above means is kept in perpetuity unless requested by the user to expunge it.
