Mile HI Distilling LLC (“Mile HI Distilling“) operates Milehidistilling.com and may operate other websites. It is Mile HI Distilling’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Mile HI Distilling 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. Mile HI Distilling’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Mile HI Distilling’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Mile HI Distilling may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Mile HI Distilling also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Milehidistilling.com blogs/sites. Mile HI Distilling 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 commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left. In order to abide with GDPR guidelines we have instituted anonymous IP address tracking, that anonymizes the last 4-digits of your IP address.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Mile HI Distilling’s websites choose to interact with Mile HI Distilling in ways that require Mile HI Distilling to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Mile HI Distilling gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at Milehidistilling.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Mile HI Distilling are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Mile HI Distilling collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Mile HI Distilling. Mile HI Distilling 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.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on Mile HI Distilling, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile (this does not include payment information). All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
