The Penny Jar wants to make sure that you understand what is happening with your data when you visit the site. We collect certain types of information about you when you visit and this policy will cover what that means for you.
(Non-Personally Identifiable Information) The Penny Jar collects anonymous information from our visitors that cannot be associated with that specific individual. For example, we know how many people visit The Penny Jar, but we don’t know names or any other personal information. This can include demographic information like sex, age, and interests. We collect this type of anonymous data in order to create better content, and make sure that the site matches what our users are looking for. Some of this anonymous tracking information is shared with third parties such as advertisers, but again, it remains anonymous.
We collect personal information if you voluntarily join The Penny Jar's mailing list. Our mailing list is powered by MailChimp, and we do not store any e-mail addresses locally.

We will not send you any other email directly unless you contact us first and specifically request information, technical help, or administrative assistance. We do not sell this address, or link it to any other personal information.
Data & Site Security
While we do not collect any personal identifying information through a visitor's browsing, we have obtained SSL certification for your protection. The site is also regularly scanned for malware and other security threats.

Surveys or Contests
From time to time we sponsor surveys and contests. If you participate, we will request certain Personal Information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you will have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Contest information typically includes information such as name and mailing address. We only use this information internally to determine eligibility, notify contest winners, and to measure the success of our efforts.
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information unless we provide users with advance notice. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or serving our users, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release information when it’s release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property or safety.
However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
