This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.
What personal information do we collect and why do we collect it?
We gather two types of information about users: Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to apply for membership, leave advertisements, like content or submit an article. Information we gather through aggregated tracking information. We use Google Analytics to collect information about how users use our site. We use the information to comple reports and to help us improve the site. The cookies collect information, including the number of visitors to the website, where visitors have come to the website from and the pages they visited.
We track user traffic patterns throughout our site. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. We break down overall usage statistics according to a user’s domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user’s browser).
Use of Information
We use any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience in our site or products, and to display relevant information. We create aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns for advertisers, sponsors and partners. Because we do not track the usage patterns of individual users, an advertiser or sponsor will never know that a specific user clicked their ad. We will not disclose any information about any individual user except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
Sharing of the Information
We use the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs. We will not share information about individual users with any third party, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
We operate secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our customers.
