Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: http://www.benwashingtonandsons.com/

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We collect personal information from people who deliberately provide it to us.

For example, if you fill out our contact form, you might provide us with your name, email address, and phone number. And if you subscribe to our blog or email marketing communications, you will provide us with an email address.

When do we collect personal information?

We only collect it when you provide it to us. While we track the behavior of everyone who uses this website (see below where we discuss Google Analytics and Facebook), the information we collect via that application is not personally identifiable. Rather, it is anonymous.

We use the information you provide to follow up on contact requests, add you to our blog subscription list, or distribute email communications. It all depends on the type of contact you’ve requested.

We may use your data internal for our marketing efforts.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Yes. We use Google Analytics and Facebook user tracking code to collect anonymous data that helps us understand how people use our website.

These cookies do not provide us with any PII. We do not use – and would never use – any tracking code, cookies, or other software that collects users’ personal information without their consent.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Third Party Disclosure

We do not sell, trade, or transfer your personally identifiable information to outside parties, individuals, or organizations.

Do you allow third party behavioral tracking?

Yes. We use Google Analytics, Facebook Analytics, and and mail delivery systems to gain insights into user behavior on our website. These applications do not provide us with your personal information.

Fair Information Practices

In compliance with Fair Information Practices principles, we will take the following responsive action should a data breach compromise our users’ information:

  • We will immediately notify users through a notification on our website. If possible, we will email users for whom we have contact information.
  • The notification will invite users to email us to learn more about the breach and determine if (or how) it affects them.

We also agree to the individual redress principle, which affirms an individual’s right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who violate certain privacy laws.

CAN-SPAM Act

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that gives you the right to stop having emails sent to you when you don’t want to receive them.

We collect email addresses only when users voluntarily submit them via a contact form or communications opt-in. To maintain accordance with CAN-SPAM, we off an “unsubscribe” link in all email communications. By following this link, users can easily remove their email from our communications list(s).
