Who We Are

At ourblindlife.com, we are committed to maintaining the trust of all visitors to our web site. In particular, we want you to know that our site is not in the business of selling, renting or trading email lists with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes. We don’t like when someone receives our mail without our consent, and we understand how important is for you to have it kept private too.

We have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

  • 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, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Our blind life 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. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use the website.

In this Privacy Policy, we’ve provided detailed information on when and why we collect personal information, how we use it, the limited conditions under which we may disclose it to others, and how we keep it secure.

We take your privacy seriously and take measures to provide all visitors and users of ourblindlife.com with a safe and secure environment.
