Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.
Information We Collect
We collect the e-mail addresses of those who post messages to our bulletin board, the e-mail addresses of those who communicate with us via e-mail, the e-mail addresses of those who make postings to our chat areas, aggregate information on what pages consumers’ access or visit, and information volunteered by the consumer; such as, survey information and/or site registrations.
We also collect traffic information. Such as, but not limit to, referring URL, click behavior, IP address, length of visit, and more.
The information we collect is used to improve the content of our website and to provide the user with better service, such as notifications about special offers and promotions.
Disclosure of Information
Why We Collect Information From You. Like any business, it’s important for us to know our readers — their needs, their likes, what they want and expect from us. Unlike most businesses, however, we deliver a valuable product to our customers without asking for anything in return. Since we make most of this Service available without charge to you, we rely heavily on advertisers to produce the income necessary to operate our Service. Advertisers are like most people: They expect something in return for the money they spend. They want to know how many people will see their ad and how often our users are looking at their ads on our Service — in other words, how effective their ad is likely to be. So it’s important that we be able to tell advertisers who our audience is. Except as expressly set forth in this privacy statement, we will not provide, sell or rent to any third party any personally identifying information that we collect from you through your use of this Service.
Collection of Personal Information
When visiting, the IP address used to access the site will be logged along with the dates and times of access. This information is purely used to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement and gather broad demographic information for internal use. Most importantly, any recorded IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Links to third party Websites
We have included links on this site for your use and reference. We are not responsible for the privacy policies on these websites. You should be aware that the privacy policies of these sites may differ from our own.
Google AdSense and the Double Click DART Cookie
We may also offer you the opportunity to subscribe to email newsletters that we make available through the Service. If you have opted to receive a particular newsletter, you may always unsubscribe later if you decide not to receive further mailings of the newsletter from us. See “Opting In/Opting Out” below.
Sharing Of Information
We may share non-personal and non-personally identifiable information about our users with advertisers, business partners, sponsors, and other third parties. We only divulge aggregate information. Such as, how often the average user visits our website. We may partner with other parties for various services; such as, credit card processors. In such cases we may share limited personal information that is necessary for the third-party to provide its services.
We may provide personal information when disclosure may be required by law (e.g. subpoenas, search warrants and court orders). We may determine that it may be reasonably necessary to protect a party’s rights, property, or well-being. This action may include exchanging information with other companies and organizations for the purposes of fraud detection or protection, or in other situations involving suspicious or illegal activities.
