This Privacy and Information Security Policy ("this Policy") discusses the personally identifying information that we collect about you when you use our website (the "Site") and the other services we provide on or through the Site (together with the Site, the "Service").
1. INFORMATION YOU GIVE US.
1.1. We collect any information you enter on the Service or give us in any other way (such as through an email, survey, or letter). The information that we collect varies depending upon how you use our Service. Our account registration process requires that you provide us with your user name, birthday and email address, and that you create and provide us with a password. We may also request other information, such as but not limited to, your actual first and last name, gender, and address.
1.2. Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily provide information in public areas of the Service, such as the user profile pages or forums, that information can be viewed and possibly used by others. We therefore advise visitors not to disclose contact information, including phone number, email address, street address or instant messenger address (within these public areas) that they do not wish to share. We are not responsible for information you choose to submit in these public areas. Also, we may highlight content you post to the public areas of the Service such as reviews or comments, such as by featuring your content on the Site's home page.
2. AUTOMATIC INFORMATION COLLECTION.
2.1. Cookies. Like many websites, we use "cookies." Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser. We use persistent, identifying cookies to remember your information and to link your activities to you. While you can take steps to warn off, block or disable cookies, if you do, the Service may not function and appear as we have designed it. Nonetheless, if you want to take these steps, you can do so by following the instructions associated with your browser. Our cookies do not collect information that you provide to us during the registration process, but they do collect other information such as the following:
- the domain name and host from which you access direct-linked to ours website;
- the date and time you access the Site and pages you visit;
- your computer's IP address and information about its operating system, platform and the Web browser type and version you use;
- demographic and other non-personally identifiable profile information about you; and
- information to combat fraud or misuse.
2.3. From time to time, we may host a promotion or contest on the Service. You May be asked to provide personal information or permit the transfer to a third party of your personal information in connection with such promotion or contest. It will be disclosed at the point of collection or transfer who is collection or transferring the information and whose privacy statement applies, and it will be your choice whether or not you wish to permit such transfer to our collection of personal information by a third party.
3. USE AND RETENTION OF YOUR INFORMATION.
We retain information for as long as required, allowed or we believe it useful, but do not undertake retention obligations. You must keep your own, separate back-up records. We may dispose of information in our discretion without notice, subject to applicable law that specifically requires the handling or retention of information.
4. INFORMATION SECURITY
4.1. You must protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Your emails to us are not necessarily secure against interception so do not include sensitive information in them - we generally will not ask for passwords in an email and you should assume that if you get such a request, it might be fraudulent. YOU MUST DO WHAT YOU REASONABLY CAN TO ENSURE THE SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION. Please sign off when finished using a shared computer.
4.2. We have physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to help safeguard, prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use your information. HOWEVER, WE DO NOT GUARANTEE SECURITY. If applicable law imposes any non-disclaimable duty (if any), you agree that intentional misconduct will be the standards used to measure our compliance with that duty. Neither people nor security systems are foolproof, including encryption systems. In addition, people can commit intentional crimes, make mistakes or fail to follow policies.
5. Outside LINKS.
The Service contains links to other sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Site and to read the privacy statements of every web site that collects your personally identifiable information. This Policy applies only to information collected by the Service.
We reserve the right to send you customary business communications such as acceptance/rejection notices regarding content submissions, general system and administrative messages, address confirmations, and transactional information about your account, and we may not offer you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving such communications. However, we provide you with the opportunity to elect not to receive other types of communications, such as friend requests or the day emails. If you want to stop receiving these communications, you may opt by going to the Profile tab on the Site and editing your email preferences.
7. ACCESS - RECORD KEEPING.
Information relating to our programs is not necessarily maintained in a retrievable form. However, you may make changes, corrections or updates to some informations provided through the Service which we use for communications with you, by going to the " Profile" tab on the Site. We may determine what may be changed. For example, if we are required to keep track of certain kinds of transactions, you may be prevented from changing relevant information. We may keep a record of all information that is changed.
8. NOTICES, CONDITIONS OF USE AND REVISIONS.
8.1. Your use of the Service and any dispute over privacy is subject to the Terms of service. If you have any concern about privacy, please send us a thorough description to support, and we will try to resolve it. If you think we are in default of the Terms, you may contact us.
8.2. In those jurisdictions that permit email notice, if we are required to disclose or provide notice of invasion of certain security systems, we will do so by email to the most current email address provided by you to us. It is critical that you keep your email contact information correct and updated at all times.
8.3. If you believe that you are a victim of identity theft entitled by law to request information from us, write us and we will let you know what additional information you must provide to us. After we have received that information, we will supply without charge the information legally required to be disclosed that we then have, subject to applicable law and reserving all of our rights and defenses.
