Our Privacy Policy

GENERAL PRIVACY MATTERS

Chute Gerdeman, Inc., dba Chute Gerdeman (“Chute”) developed and maintains its websites and the Gerdeblog in a manner which prioritizes your privacy. For Example, Chute does not sell advertising space on its sites and, therefore, unlike many other sites that you may visit, does not report information regarding its users, even of a generic or anonymous nature, to any advertiser or marketer. Regardless, this Privacy Policy is necessary to inform you regarding certain aspects of your privacy as they relate to Chute websites, such as Chute’s collection and use of your personal information collected during your use of our websites.

At various locations both in and following content, Chute may invite the reader to request more information or material. In doing so, the user shall have provided Chute their email address. Chute will use such information and any other information provided by the user to respond to such request with available materials or information and shall store the same in Chute’s records. Additionally, Chute requires the entry of certain personally indentifying information, such as name and email address, prior to allowing a user to post comments to the Gerdeblog. Further, Chute’s server will record your usage on its sites (i.e. your IP address, files accessed and time of usage). In all such instances, Chute reserves the right to make record of such information and to use the same at later dates to send the user additional materials that Chute believes may be of the user’s interest or of general promotional content. In doing so, Chute will provide the user with an “opt out” option and procedure from future such correspondence.

DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES

Chute will not disclose, transfer or release to any third party, whether for compensation or otherwise, any of the personal information that you provide or that we gather from or relating to your time using Chute websites, including your name, address, email address, phone number or other identifying information. Additionally, if you email us, rest assured that Chute will not share the content of your email with third parties, unless so ordered by a court or governmental agency of proper jurisdiction or to protect Chute’s legal interests.

AMENDMENTS

Chute may update or amend this policy from time to time. As such, the user is encouraged to reread this Privacy Policy from time to time. If Chute makes any substantial changes to its Privacy Policy, as such, Chute encourages you to review this Privacy Policy and note the “Last Modified” date from time to time.

EXERCISE CARE WHEN LEAVING OUR SITE

Chute has designed its websites by including links to other websites based exclusively on their content and specifically advises the user that Chute has not reviewed or approved of any of the Privacy Policies of those external sites. Chute shall neither be responsible for the content of an external site nor its use of your personal information. Chute encourages you to review the Privacy Policy of each external site that you visit before disclosing any personal information.
