Privacy Policy

A note about the GDPR

Runway Girl Network is committed to the protection of users’ personal data. With the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) now in effect, we believe it is important to impart the following:

  • Our email lists are opt-in only; we have never padded our lists with non-subscribers’ names and email addresses. If you believe your email address has been added to our lists by anyone without your consent, please contact us immediately at info@ruwaygirlnetwork.com.
  • If you have subscribed to our email lists (our free newsletter or subscription-based direct-to-inbox premium content), please take a minute to update your preferences and ensure that you receive the most relevant communications from Runway Girl Network.
  • It is a user’s right to access their full record and have all personal data deleted. You can manually unsubscribe from our email lists and cancel any subscription. Please also feel free to contact us directly at info@ruwaygirlnetwork.com if you would like for us to update your preferences, unsubscribe you from any list, cancel your subscription, provide you with your record, delete your record or have any questions about your account.

Ensuring the privacy of our users is deeply important to us. Our Privacy Policy is below, and will be regularly updated, as the world strengthens its data protection rules.

Privacy Policy of Kirby Media Group LLC

Kirby Media Group LLC operates the Runway Girl Network website, which provides the SERVICE.

This Privacy Policy governs our website and mobile site (each is a SERVICE).

This Privacy Policy is used to inform visitors regarding our policies with the collection, use, and disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information and other Personal Information.

If you choose to use our SERVICE, then you agree to the collection and use of information in relation with this policy.

The Personally Identifiable Information that we collect is used for providing and improving the SERVICE. We will not use or share your Personally Identifiable Information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy.

Information Collection and Use

If you are signing up for our free products as part of the SERVICE, we will ask you to provide us with certain Personally Identifiable Information, including your name and email address.

If you are signing up for our paid premium products as part of the SERVICE, we will ask you to provide us with certain Personally Identifiable Information, including but not limited to your name; email address; and payment information, such as a credit or debit card number.

The SERVICE also collects account login credentials, comments, and other information you submit to the SERVICE.

The Personally Identifiable Information that we collect is used to:

  • Provide you access to the SERVICE
  • Process a transaction or order
  • Provide technical or product support
  • Identify you
  • Contact you
  • Provide you with special offers or coupons
  • Respond to your requests
  • Respond to your comments on the website; and
  • Notify you about changes to the SERVICE or Privacy Policy.

The information that we collect may also be used for data analytics to determine the effectiveness of our SERVICE, to identify ways to improve the SERVICE, and to identify traffic and usage trends.

Because the SERVICE derives some of its revenue from advertising, providing aggregated demographic data, as supplied by Google Analytics, is essential to keeping our service free to users. We use IP Anonymization to prevent the collection of personal data from the Google Analytics tracking code. Under no circumstances does the SERVICE divulge any data to advertisers that could identify a specific individual making use of the SERVICE.

The SERVICE is not intended for use by children. It does not knowingly collect or solicit Personally Identifiable Information from children. If we become aware that a user under the age of 16 has submitted Personally Identifiable Information without parental consent, we will promptly remove his or her information from our files. Please contact info@ruwaygirlnetwork.com if you become aware that a child for which you are the parent or guardian has provided the SERVICE with Personally Identifiable Information without your consent.

Google Analytics

We use analytics tools, including Google Analytics, to understand how visitors engage with the SERVICE. For more information about how Google collects and processes data when you visit websites or use apps that use Google technologies, please see: “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps”, (located at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners)

The SERVICE uses IP Anonymization to prevent the collection of personal data from the Google Analytics tracking code. We retain this specific data for 26 months in order to compare aggregated demographic data and traffic year-over-year.

You can exercise choices regarding the use of cookies from Google Analytics by going to https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout or downloading the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.

Log Data

We want to inform you that whenever you visit our site and use our SERVICE, we collect information that your browser sends to us that is called Log Data.

This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser version, pages of our SERVICE that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages, location (country, city), operating software, audience demographics, and other statistics.

Cookies

Cookies are files with small amounts of data that are commonly used as anonymous unique identifiers. These are sent to your browser from the website that you visit and are stored on your computer’s hard drive.

Our website uses these cookies to collect information and to improve our SERVICE. For example, we may use cookies to personalize your experience on the SERVICE (such as to recognize you by name when you return to our site or to save your password in password-protected areas).

Most browsers automatically accept cookies. But you can control cookies through your browser’s settings. You can set your browser option so that you will not receive cookies and you can also delete existing cookies from your browser.

If you choose to refuse our cookies, you may find that some parts of the site will not function properly or you may have difficulty accessing parts of the SERVICE. If you wish to block cookies, go to http://www.allaboutcookies.org to find out how, or check your browser’s instructions.

Links to Other Sites

The SERVICE may contain links to third-party websites and applications of interest. If you click on a link, you will be directed to that site.

Note that these external websites are not operated by us. Therefore, we advise you to review the Privacy Policy of these websites. We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party websites or services.

Advertisers

At present, we do not use third-party ad servers to display ads. We will update our Privacy Policy if this changes.

We do, however, display advertisements on the SERVICE from our direct sponsors. These advertisements may use pixel tags and other technologies to enable sponsors to track user activity such as the source that the user came from and location of the user.

If you click on an advertisement, you will be directed to that sponsor’s website. Note that external websites are not operated by us. Therefore, we advise you to review the Privacy Policy of these websites. We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party websites or services.

Service Providers

We may employ third-party companies and individuals due to the following reasons:

  • To facilitate our SERVICE;
  • To provide the SERVICE on our behalf;
  • To perform SERVICE-related services; or
  • To assist us in analyzing how our SERVICE is used.

We want to inform our SERVICE users that these third parties have access to your Personally Identifiable Information. The reason is to perform the tasks assigned to them on our behalf. Third-party companies and individuals are not permitted to share, rent or sell your information. They are obligated not to disclose or use the information for any other purpose than to provide the SERVICE.

We will not share your personal information with a third party except to assist us in the manner mentioned above, or when we are required by law in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary in order to conform to the edicts of the law, or if we must comply with a legal process served on our web site.

Security

We value your trust in providing us with your Personally Identifiable Information, thus we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect it, including using a secure payment method for our subscription-based premium content. But remember that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and reliable, and we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Opt-Out

When you access the SERVICE, you may be offered the opportunity to subscribe to our email list, which provides our weekly newsletter and other free content; and/or our premium subscription-based service, which provides direct-to-inbox premium content to users. If you register for either, you will have the opportunity to update your preferences, and opt-out of continuing to receive messages to your inbox by unsubscribing at the bottom of every email.

Under GDPR, it is a user’s right to review the information we collect about you and to have all personal data deleted. In addition to being able to manually unsubscribe from our email lists and cancel any subscription, please also feel free to contact us directly at info@ruwaygirlnetwork.com if you would like for us to update your preferences, unsubscribe you from any list, cancel your subscription, provide you with your record, delete your record, or have any questions about your account.

Changes to This Privacy Policy

We will update our Privacy Policy from time to time. Thus, we advise you to review this page periodically for any changes. We will notify you of any changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on this page. These changes are effective immediately, after they are posted on this page.
