Ben Chrisman, Inc. Privacy Policy
Your privacy is important to us.

It is Ben Chrisman, Inc.’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website. Accordingly, we have developed this privacy policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate, disclose and otherwise make use of personal information on this Site. We have outlined our privacy policy below.

COLLECTING PERSONAL INFORMATION
We will collect personal information by lawful and fair means and, where appropriate, with the knowledge or consent of the individual concerned. For example, you may be required to provide us with certain Personal Information to subscribe to receive emails from us or to contact us through the Site and at other times. The decision to provide this information is optional, but you may not be able to use certain portions of the Site if you are unwilling to provide it. When we ask for your personal information, we will identify the purposes for which it is being collected.

MANAGING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
You may review, correct, update, or change your Personal Information at any time by contacting us at info@chrismanstudios.com

COLLECTING NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION OR METADATA
We automatically collect information that does not reflect or reference an individually identifiable user (“Non-Personal Information”) to help us understand how our users use the Site. Like most websites, we automatically collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files may include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider), the web browser you used to visit the Site, the time you visited the Site, which web pages you visited on the Site, and other anonymous Site usage data.

USING YOUR INFORMATION
We will collect and use personal information solely for fulfilling those purposes specified by us and for other ancillary purposes. Personal data should be relevant to the purposes for which it is to be used, and, to the extent necessary for those purposes, should be accurate, complete, and up-to-date. We will not sell, share, or rent Personal Information to third parties, and we will not otherwise disclose Personal Information to third parties, without your express permission or as expressly disclosed in this Privacy Policy.

HOW LONG PERSONAL INFO IS KEPT
We will only retain personal information for as long as necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes.

CHILDREN’S PRIVACY POLICY
The Site is intended for users who are 18 years old or older. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13. If we become aware that we have inadvertently received Personal Information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete such information from our records.

COMPLIANCE WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT
We cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We may disclose either Personal Information or Non-Personal Information to government or law enforcement officials or private parties if it is necessary or appropriate in order to respond to legal requests (including court orders and subpoenas), to protect both our and your safety, property, or rights, or those of any third party, to prevent or stop any illegal, unethical, or legally actionable activity, or to comply with the law. Unless enjoined or otherwise forbidden from doing so by legal authority, in the event that Ben Chrisman, Inc is required to provide your personal information to a third party, you will be notified of what information has been shared and for what purposes.

COMPLIANCE WITH THE CONSUMER IDENTITY THEFT PROTECTION ACT
Ben Chrisman, Inc is in compliance with the South Carolina Consumer Identity Theft Protection Act, SC § 37-20-110. If you are a resident of South Carolina, any collection or use of your Social Security number, or any destruction or disposal of records containing your personal identifying information, will occur in accordance with its regulations. Should we have any reason to make a transfer of your Social Security number to a third party, such a transfer will not occur without your express written consent.

SECURITY
We will protect personal information by using reasonable security safeguards, both physical, electronic, and procedural, against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification. We are committed to ensuring that your personal data does not fall into unscrupulous hands.
However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect information transmitted on or through the Site, we cannot and do not guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit on or through the Site, and you do so at your own risk.

TRANSFERS AND SHARING
From time to time, we might establish a business relationship with other persons or entities whom we believe trustworthy and whom we have asked to confirm that their privacy practices are consistent with ours (“Service Providers”). For example, we may contract with Service Providers to provide certain services, such as hosting and maintenance, data storage and management, and marketing. From time to time, we may need to provide our Service Providers with the information reasonably necessary for them to perform these services. Each Service Provider must agree to implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the information involved in order to protect your information from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification, or disclosure. Service Providers are prohibited from using Personal Information other than as specified by us.
We may share Personal Information and Non-Personal Information with businesses controlling, controlled by, or under common control with us. If we are merged, acquired, or sold, or in the event of a transfer of some or all of our assets, we may disclose or transfer Personal Information and Non-Personal Information in connection with such transaction. You will have the opportunity to opt out of any such transfer if, in our discretion, the new entity plans to handle your information in a way that differs materially from this Privacy Policy.

NOTICE AND CHANGES
We will make readily available to customers information about our policies and practices relating to the management of personal information. We are committed to conducting our business in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained. Ben Chrisman, Inc. may change this privacy policy from time to time at Ben Chrisman, Inc.’s sole discretion. We will inform you by posting a copy of the Privacy Policy as changed on the Site. Those changes will go into effect on the “Effective Date” shown in the revised Privacy Policy. Your continued use of the Site constitutes your consent to the Privacy Policy as changed. If you object to any such changes, your sole recourse shall be to cease using the Site.
