Privacy Policy

What This Policy Covers

This policy covers personal information that FloridaBurners.com receives when you use the floridaburners.com website and affiliated webpages (collectively, my “Site”).

“Personal information” is information that can be linked to you as an individual, such as your name, address, email address, or phone number. By visiting my Site, you are accepting the practices described in this privacy policy. If you are under 16, you must ask your parent or guardian for their permission before sending any information to me or asking me to email you. By visiting the Site and/or sending any information to me, you are confirming that your parent or guardian has consented to you doing so.

This privacy policy is intended to give you information about:

  • The personal information that is collected or processed when you use the Site;
  • How your personal information is used and protected;
  • Your rights to your personal information; and
  • How to contact me to exercise your rights regarding your personal information.

The Controller of Your Personal Information

The controller of personal information that you knowingly give to me, or that is automatically collected through visiting the Site, is Nicholas Bostic, a participant involved in Florida sanctioned regional burns including being a Burnt Oranges Inc board member (as of October 2019) and volunteer at Afterburn and Love Burn living in Orlando, FL 32836. This means Nicholas Bostic and not any events or non-profit is responsible for establishing the purposes and means for the use of your personal information.

Information You Knowingly Give Me

I receive and may store any personal information you actively send me or enter on my Site. You provide such information when you:

  • Create a Burner Profile;
  • Contribute to potential future forums;
  • Submit an online questionnaire, application, or other form;
  • Sign up for my newsletters or other mailing lists;
  • Post comments on potential future blog posts;
  • Send me emails.

Information That is Automatically Collected by My System

I receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with me through my Site: I use a cookie to store your login ID and password and to synchronize your responses to one form with other relevant forms.

A cookie is an alphanumeric identifier that I transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser to allow my system to recognize your browser and to provide you certain browsing conveniences.

You can configure your browser to reject cookies, but if you do so, you might not be able to experience all the interactive features of my Site.

Google Analytics

I use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about use of my Site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit the Site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to my Site. I use the information I get from Google Analytics only to maintain and improve the Site’s technical performance. Google Analytics collects the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this Site, rather than your name or other identifying information. I do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this Site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of service, available at https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/me.html, and the Google Privacy Policy, available at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to my Site by disabling cookies on your browser.

What I Do With Your Personal Information

I use the personal information that I receive to operate my Site, to aid in production of Florida regional Burning Man events, and for other Florida regional Burning Man-related projects. Your personal information may be stored on my system and shared among Florida regional Burning Man affiliates, including but not limited to Burning Man Project, Black Rock City LLC, Black Rock Arts Foundation, Burnt Oranges Inc, Afterburn, Love Burn, and Preheat. I do not rent or sell your personal information to any other entity. I do not share your personal information with any other entity, except when:

  • I have your permission;
  • I must respond to a subpoena, court order, or other legal process;
  • I must exercise my legal rights, protect my property, defend against legal claims, or otherwise comply with the law; or
  • I believe it is appropriate in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected illegal activities, fraud, threats to personal safety, or violation of the Site’s terms of use.

FloridaBurners.com and/or its affiliates may at times contact you at your email address to keep you informed about events and other Florida regional Burning Man-related opportunities. Should you not wish to receive such communications, you will find details about how to opt out the first time you are contacted. If FloridaBurners.com is acquired or transferred, or changes entity status, the personal information maintained on FloridaBurners.com systems will be among the transferred assets but will remain subject to any FloridaBurners.com privacy policy in existence at the time of the acquisition or transfer.

You can contact me at the address provided below to request access to the personal information I hold about your and/or transfer it to another controller. If your personal information is inaccurate, you can request a correction. You can edit personal information in your Burner Profile by logging on to my system and manually editing your Burner Profile page, or by sending a description of your requested change through the “Contact Us” link on my Site (https://floridaburners.com/contact-us/). You can also delete your Burner Profile or contact me at the address below to request the deletion of your personal information. For technical reasons, the information that you have voluntarily shared with other users by posting messages on the public part of the Site may remain visible on the Site even after the deletion of your account.

Confidentiality and Security

The only people who have access to personal information collected on my Site, either directly or through use of Google Analytics, have a need to know this information and are bound by nondisclosure agreements and this privacy policy. I have physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the personal information that I store.

However, whenever you submit expressive content to certain areas of my Site — such as potential future forums, potential Florida regional Events calendar, potential theme camp and art project listings, and FloridaBurners.com newsletters — you understand that the submission will be made public on the Site. I are not responsible for the use of any personal information that you or others choose to post publicly. You may be identified as the author of any posted expressive content unless you instruct me otherwise.

I will identify your potential forum submissions by the handle you register and will not disseminate any other registration information without your authorization. However, if you contact other posters by email, your personal information may be included in the header, as with any email.

In general, I cannot guarantee your anonymity whenever you interact with my Site.

Please note that my Site may contain links to third-party websites. These third-party websites may send their own cookies to collect data and solicit personal information. Therefore, I cannot guarantee your privacy when visiting such third-party sites, nor the accuracy or acceptability of any services provided by such third parties.
