Runchkins Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Runchkins we have a few fundamental principles:

  • 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 share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products and services, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals. If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact us.


Runchkins LLC (“Runchkins”) operates the website runchkins.com. It is Runchkins’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Runchkins 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. Runchkins’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Runchkins’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Runchkins may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Runchkins also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users visiting our website. Runchkins only discloses logged in user and visitor IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Runchkins’s websites choose to interact with Runchkins in ways that require Runchkins to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Runchkins gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for Runchkins to provide their name and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Runchkins – by purchasing Runchkins clothing, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Runchkins collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Runchkins. Runchkins 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 service-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Runchkins may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Runchkins may monitor the most popular pages on the runchkins.com site. Runchkins may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Runchkins does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Runchkins 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 Runchkins’s behalf or to provide services available at Runchkins’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 Runchkins’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Runchkins 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, Runchkins discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Runchkins believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Runchkins, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Runchkins website and have supplied your email address, Runchkins 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 Runchkins and our products. 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. Runchkins takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Runchkins uses cookies to help Runchkins identify and track visitors, their usage of Runchkins website, and their website access preferences. Runchkins visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Runchkins’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Runchkins’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Runchkins, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Runchkins goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Runchkins may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Runchkins may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Runchkins’s sole discretion. Runchkins encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
