Your privacy is of utmost importance to us.
Here is information on what types of personal information we receive and collect when you visit, and how we safeguard your information.
Rest assured that any information you provide will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.
This policy may be updated or changed anytime. We encourage you to review it whenever you visit the site to make sure you understand how any personal information you provide will be used.
Collection and Use of Information
We collect personally identifiable information such as names and email addresses only when voluntarily submitted. This information is used merely to fulfill a specific request, for example, to post a comment in a blog, to create an account in a forum, or to subscribe to a mailing list. Any emails and newsletters from this site allow you to opt out of further communications.
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.
Distribution of Information
We never use or share any of your information in ways unrelated to the ones described above. We do not send spam. We do not sell your information to any company for marketing purposes. We may, however, share information with government agencies or other companies assisting us in fraud prevention or investigation. We may do so when: (1) permitted or required by law; (2) trying to protect against or prevent actual or potential fraud or unauthorized transactions; or (3) investigating fraud which has already taken place.
Cookies and Tracking Technology
Our site may place a small file, called a cookie, on your hard drive to provide you with a better website. A cookie does not, in any way, give us access to your computer or to any personally identifiable information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
Cookies may store information, such as your personal preferences when you visit our site. This could be used to show you a popup once in your visit, or give you the ability to login to features such as forums. Cookies help us analyze web traffic and let web applications respond to you as an individual.
We also use third party advertisements to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies, web beacons and tracking technology when they advertise on our site, in the course of serving ads to you, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This can be used for such things as geotargeting (such as showing European ads to someone in Europe) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited.
You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. Also, at any time, you may remove any cookie stored on your hard drive by deleting it in your browser’s settings section. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
