Privacy Policy

At RichardRiviere.com, one of our biggest priorities is the privacy of our visitors. This page documents the types of information collected and recorded at https://richardriviere.com and how they’re used.

Log Files

All website hosting companies (they enable websites to be published online) use log files to log visitors to a website. The information collected by these files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and sometimes the number of clicks. None of this information is personally identifiable. Instead, it is used for analyzing trends, administering the website, tracking users’ anonymous movement on the site, and gathering demographic information.

Cookies and Web Beacons

A ‘cookie’ is a file containing an identifier (a random string of characters) sent by a web server to a web browser and then stored by that browser. Cookies do not contain any personal information.

Like almost all websites, RichardRiviere.com uses cookies. They are used to store information, including visitors’ preferences and the pages on the website that the visitor accesses or visits. This information is used to improve the user experience by customizing our web page content based on visitors’ browser type and/or other information.

We use Google Analytics to analyze the use of this website. Google Analytics gathers information about website use utilizing cookies. The information gathered relating to our website is used to create usage reports. Google’s privacy policy is available at: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

For more general information on cookies, please read the “What Are Cookies?” article on the Privacy Policy Online website.

Here is how to disable cookies in different internet browsers:

Comments

When visitors leave comments on this website, we collect the data shown in the comments form and the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help with spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Contact forms

If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages, together with your email address and our responses. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ to maintain information received online, by mail, and by telephone. This also applies when you register for our website, sign up through any of our forms using your email address or make a purchase on this website.

Email Policy

We are committed to keeping your email address confidential. We do not sell, rent, or lease our subscription lists to third parties and will not disclose your email address to any third parties unless legally compelled to do so. That is, if we believe that the law requires it for the protection of our legal rights or when compelled by a court or other governmental entity to do so.

We will maintain the information you send via email in accordance with applicable federal law.

In compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act, all e-mails sent from our organization will clearly state who the e-mail is from and provide clear information on how to contact the sender. In addition, all email messages sent to our subscription lists will contain concise information on how to remove yourself from our mailing list so that you receive no further email communication from us.

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 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.

By default, the ThirstyAffiliates plugin collects visitors’ IP addresses every time they click an affiliate link as part of the statistics information. By checking this, the IP address collection will be disabled, but other information will still be saved.

Social sharing 

This website may offer social sharing features and other integrated tools (such as the Facebook “Like” button), which let you share actions you take on our website with other media services. Your use of these tools enables the sharing of information with the public, depending on the settings you establish with your social networks. For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection with social sharing features, please visit the privacy policies of the entities that provide these tools.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, that comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can automatically recognize and approve any follow-up comments instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Privacy Policies

Third-party ad servers or ad networks use technologies like cookies, JavaScript, or Web Beacons in their respective links, which may appear on RichardRiviere.com and are sent directly to users’ browsers. They automatically receive your IP address when this occurs. These technologies are used to measure the effectiveness of their advertising campaigns and/or personalize the advertising content you see on websites you visit.

Note that RichardRiviere.com has no access to or control over these cookies used by third-party advertisers.

Third Party Privacy Policies

RichardRiviere.com’s Privacy Policy does not apply to other advertisers or websites. Therefore, we advise you to consult the respective Privacy Policies of those third-party ad servers for more detailed information. It may include their practices and instructions on how to opt out of specific options.

You can choose to disable cookies through your individual browser options. For more detailed information about cookie management with specific web browsers, go to their respective websites.

Children’s Information

Another part of our priority is adding protection for children while using the internet. We encourage parents and guardians to observe, participate in, and/or monitor and guide their online activity.

RichardRiviere.com does not knowingly collect any Personal Identifiable Information from children under the age of 13. If you think that your child provided such information on this website, we strongly encourage you to contact us immediately at support@richardriviere.com, and we will do our best to remove such information from our records promptly.

Online Privacy Policy Only

This Privacy Policy applies only to our online activities. It is valid for visitors to this website and regards the information they share and/or is collected at RichardRiviere.com. This policy does not apply to any information collected offline or via channels other than this website.

Consent
