Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. Jenna Morton has a few fundamental principles that are follow on balancingthatbudget.com or “Site” herein:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)

  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

Jenna Morton operates several websites including [balancingthatbudget.com and pradaandpearls.com]. It is Jenna Morton’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, the Site collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Jenna Mortons’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how the Site’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Jenna Morton may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Jenna Morton also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Jenna Morton only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Jenna Mortons’s websites choose to interact with the Site in ways that require Jenna Mortonto gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Jenna Morton gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive WPBeginner updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Jenna Morton collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the Site. Jenna Morton does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Jenna Morton may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Jenna Morton may monitor the most popular pages on the list25.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Jenna Morton may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Jenna Morton does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Jenna Morton discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Jenna Morton’s behalf or to provide services available at Jenna Morton’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Jenna Morton’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Jenna Morton will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Jenna Morton discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Jenna Morton believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of the Site, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Jenna Morton website and have supplied your email address, Jenna Morton may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with The Site and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Jenna Morton takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
