2.2 Automatically Collected Usage and Device Information
Similar to other websites, we use tracking technologies to automatically collect certain technical information from your web browser, mobile, or other device when you visit our Services. This data may include, without limitation, your IP address, browser type and language, referring/exit pages and URLs, other browser history, platform type, number of clicks, landing pages, the pages you requested and viewed, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time of your visits. Our collection of this data, described in more detail below, allows us to provide more personalized Services to you and to track usage of the Services.
Through Server Logs: A server log is a list of the activities that a server performs. Dan Post’s servers automatically collect and store in server logs your search queries, Internet Protocol (IP) address, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral URL and certain cookies that identify your browser or Dan Post account.
From Your Computer, Tablet or Mobile Telephone: We collect information about your computer, tablet or mobile telephone (“Device”), such as model, operating system version, mobile network information, telephone number, internet service provider and similar identifiers. Dan Post may associate your Device information with your Dan Post account. We may collect and store information (including Personal Information) on your Device through browser web and web application data caches.
“Cookies” are small text files that are sent to or accessed from your web browser or your computer’s hard drive. A cookie typically contains the name of the domain (internet location) from which the cookie originated, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e., when it expires) and a randomly generated unique number or similar identifier. A cookie also may contain information about your computer, such as user settings, browsing history and activities conducted while using the Services. Our collection of this information allows us to improve your user experience in various ways, such as to personalize our display of the Services to you, to “remember” whether or not you are signed in, and to provide better technical support to you.
The Services use the following Cookies:
- Strictly necessary Cookies, which are required for the operation of the Services. Without them, for example, you would not be able to register or log in for the Services that Dan Post offers.
- Analytical/performance Cookies, which allow Dan Post to recognize and count the number of visitors, learn how visitors navigate the Services and improve the Services.
- Functionality Cookies, which Dan Post uses to recognize you when you return to the Services.
To learn more about Cookies and Web Beacons, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
Please note: If you restrict, disable, or block any or all Cookies from your web browser or Device, the Services may not operate properly, and you may not have access to certain services or parts of the Services. We will not be liable for any interruption in, or inability to use, the Services or degraded functioning thereof, where such are caused by your settings and choices regarding Cookies.
2.2.2 Web Beacons (aka pixels/web bugs/java script)
“Web Beacons” are tiny graphics (about the size of a period at the end of a sentence) with unique identifiers used to track certain online actions, movements and related information of users of the Services. Unlike Cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, Web Beacons are embedded invisibly on web pages or in HTML-based emails. The data we receive through Web Beacons allows us to effectively promote the Services to various populations of users, and to optimize external advertisements about the Services that appear on third-party websites. We may use Web Beacons to automatically record certain technical information about your interactions when you visit the Services or otherwise engage with us, to help deliver Cookies on our Services, or to count users who have visited the Services. We may also include Web Beacons in our promotional e-mail messages or newsletters to determine whether you open or act on them for statistical purposes. Web Beacons help Dan Post develop statistical information to provide better and more personalized content.
2.3 Information from Other Sources
We may obtain both personal and non-Personal Information about you from business partners, contractors, suppliers, and other third parties and add it to your account information or other information we have collected. We, and the third parties we engage, may combine information we collect from you over time, and across the Services, with information obtained from other sources. This helps us improve the information’s overall accuracy and completeness, and also helps us better tailor our interactions with you.
We use third-party payment processors to assist in securely processing your Payment Information (“Payment Processors”). The Payment Information that you provide through the Services is encrypted and transmitted directly to the Payment Processor. In some cases the Payment Processor will direct you to its website and you will provide your Payment Information directly on the Payment Processor website. If you provide Payment Information through the Services, we do not store your Payment Information before transmitting it to the Payment Processor. We do not control and are not responsible for the Payment Processor or its collection or use of your information. When you complete a sale through a Payment Processor website, we may collect information from the Payment Processor in order to fulfill your order.
Currently our Payment Processors include Shopify, Google Payments or “G Pay”, and Afterpay. You may find out more about how these Payment Processors use your Payment Information by viewing their privacy policies:
- Shopify: https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy.
- Google Payments: https://payments.google.com/payments/apis-secure/get_legal_document?ldo=0&ldt=privacynotice&ldl=en

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) or vendor(s) to:
- Complete the transaction for which we collected the Personal Information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.

- Comply with a legal obligation or legal order.
- Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
6.5 Exercising Your Rights
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us via e-mail at: email@example.com.
Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your Personal Information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
You may only make such a request for access or data portability twice within a twelve-month period. The verifiable consumer request must provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected Personal Information or an authorized representative, and describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with Personal Information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the Personal Information relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to ninety (90) days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. We will deliver our written response electronically. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the twelve (12) month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your Personal Information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:
- Deny you goods or services.
- Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
- Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
- Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
6.7 Online Tracking Choices
Some web browsers (including some mobile web browsers) provide settings that allow you to control or reject Cookies or to alert you when a Cookie is placed on your Device. Although you are not required to accept Cookies or mobile device identifiers, if you block or reject them, some features of the Services (particularly those that require sign-in) may not function properly.
Some browsers may transmit “do-not-track” (DNT) signals to the websites with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. We currently do not change our tracking practices in response to DNT settings in your browser.
7. Children’s Privacy
The Services are not directed to or intended for use by minors. Consistent with the requirements of applicable law, if we learn that we have received any information directly from a minor without his or her parent’s verified consent, we will use that information only to respond directly to that child (or his or her parent or legal guardian) to inform the minor that he or she cannot use the Services and subsequently will delete that information.
California Minors: While the Service is not intended for anyone under the age of 18, if you are a California resident who is under age 18 and you are unable to remove publicly-available content that you have submitted to us, you may request removal by contacting us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
When requesting removal, you must be specific about the information you want removed and provide us with specific information, such as the URL for each page where the information was entered, so that we can find it. We are not required to remove any content or information that: (1) federal or state law requires us or a third party to maintain; (2) was not posted by you; (3) is anonymized so that you cannot be identified; (4) you don’t follow our instructions for removing or requesting removal; or (5) you received compensation or other consideration for providing the content or information. Removal of your content or information from the Service does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of that content or information from our systems or the systems of our service providers. We are not required to delete the content or information posted by you; our obligations under California law are satisfied so long as we anonymize the content or information or render it invisible to other users and the public.
8. Security of Personal Information
Dan Post takes precautions intended to help protect information that we process but no system or electronic data transmission is completely secure. Any transmission of your Personal Information is at your own risk and we expect that you will use appropriate security measures to protect your Personal Information. You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account credentials for the Services. Dan Post will treat access to the Services through your account credentials as authorized by you. Unauthorized access to password-protected or secure areas is prohibited and may lead to criminal prosecution. We may suspend your use of all or part of the Services without notice if we suspect or detect any breach of security. If you believe that information you provided to us is no longer secure, please notify us immediately using the contact information provided below. If we become aware of a breach that affects the security of your Personal Information, we will provide you with notice as required by applicable law. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Dan Post will provide any such notice that Dan Post must provide to you at your account’s email address. By using the Services, you agree to accept notice electronically.
We retain Personal Information in identifiable form only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the Personal Information was provided to Dan Post or, if longer to comply with law legal obligations, to resolve disputes, to enforce agreements and similar essential purposes.
