This policy tells you, among other things, what information we gather from you, how we may use or disclose that information and our efforts to protect it. Please read this policy carefully, and feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions regarding its contents.
Types of Information Collected
In connection with your use of our site, we ask for and may collect a variety of information from and about you in different ways. For example, if you choose to register on our site, we ask for and store your name, email address and other identifying contact data. In addition, we collect your location. We may also collect the information you post on our site.
Use of Information
We use your personally identifying information to identify you as a user of the site and prevent potentially illegal activities. We may use your email address to contact you directly. We may also associate your personally identifying information with information we collect about your preferences and activities at the site, such as the particular pages you request at the site. We may vary the content you receive in future visits to the site based on your preferences and activities.
We may combine your personally identifying information, and information about your preferences and activities, with those of all or a particular group of our users to prepare collective profiles of our users and their activities. For example, we may track the number of our users who view certain pages or use certain features. Such information, and other information we derive from individual users’ information, allows us to continue to grow and provide a website that will better serve your needs.
Disclosure of Information
We may provide third parties with collective profiles of our users and their activities and preferences. Such collective profiles may also be disclosed in describing our site and services to prospective partners, advertisers and other third parties, and for other lawful purposes.
Finally, we may disclose information to fulfill certain legal and regulatory requirements or if we believe, in good faith, that such disclosure is legally required or necessary to protect others’ rights or to prevent harm.
You may choose to restrict our use of your information on the site, or prohibit our disclosure of your information to others, by contacting us and directing us to impose such limits. For example, if requested, we will not provide your information to any third parties, regardless of the steps they may take to protect such information. If you do not want us to provide your information to third parties, or otherwise want us to restrict the use or disclosure of your information, please send us an e-mail at email@example.com.
In addition, we will not send unsolicited messages to users of our site who indicate that they do not wish to receive such messages. If you do not wish to receive unsolicited email messages from us, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At any time after you have logged on to our site, you may contact us at email@example.com. to request access to information we have collected regarding you or to notify us of changes to such information. If you request any such changes, we will contact you by email or fax to confirm those changes. Once confirmed, any new item of information will replace the corresponding information previously provided.
We use industry-standard encryption methods to transmit your personal information from your computer to ours across the Internet, and we restrict access to any transactional portions of our site to computers running web browsers that support Secure Socket Layer ("SSL") protocol. Most browsers will automatically activate the technology when you log on to our site.
Please remember that you play a valuable part in security as well. Remember that any information you voluntarily disclose on-line may be collected and used by others without your permission. Furthermore, if you provide any information to parties who operate websites that are linked to or from our site, different rules may apply to their collection, use or disclosure of your personal information. We encourage you to review these sites’ policies before revealing any sensitive or personal information.
Regardless of the precautions taken by you or by us, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you transmit such information at your own risk.
It may be necessary from time to time for us to modify this policy to reflect changes in the way we collect and use information or changes in privacy-related laws, regulations, and industry standards. Accordingly, we reserve the right to change this policy at any time by posting the revised policy on this web site. This policy was posted on August 16, 2013. Data will be handled in accordance with the policy in effect at the time the data is used, subject to the user’s right to opt out of revisions to this policy implemented since the data was first collected.
