Our Commitment to Your Privacy
Information Collection and Use
We are the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We may collect information from you at two different stages. First, we collect anonymous, aggregate information from all visitors to the site. This information is never linked to any personally identifiable information and is only used in the aggregate to generate statistical reports about the use of our site. Second, we may collect personal information, which is information that is specific to you and may include such things as your e-mail address and name. This type of information is sometimes called “personally identifiable information.” The only personally identifiable information collected through our site is information you choose to supply in response to a request, offer or opportunity to post or link to content. In addition, we may require certain personally identifiable information if you subscribe to a newsletter or if you sign up to participate in a promotion, gallery or survey through the site or by agreeing to our terms and conditions when you sign up with us. We may also receive personally identifiable information from our business partners.
Provision and Transmission of Information
As a general rule, except in connection with our provision of certain services to you, we will not read the documents, communications or other content that you may create, review or retrieve on this site, unless such content is intended by its nature to be publicly viewable; however, we (or our third party providers) do store the content on computer systems for a period of time for our general business purposes. We also monitor the performance of our services and the site in order to manage, maintain, and improve our services and the site. We (or our third party providers) may use tools to help prevent and block “spam” communications, viruses, spyware, and other harmful or unwanted communications and programs on the site. These tools may automatically scan your content in order to help us protect you and the site against these harmful or unwanted communications and programs. However, these tools do not collect or disclose personally identifiable information about you. You should also be aware that any personally identifiable information you provide in forums, blogs, or bulletin boards may be read, collected, and used by others who access those services. We are not responsible for any personally identifiable information you choose to submit in forums, blogs, bulletin boards, or any other publicly accessible service or website.
Use of Your Personal Information
Wherever your personal information may be held by us or on our behalf, we intend to take commercially reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the personal information that you share with us from unauthorized access or disclosure. However, given the nature of the Internet and the fact that network security measures are not infallible, we cannot guarantee the security ofyour information. We use encryption to protect sensitive information online. The servers that store your personally identifiable information are housed in a secure environment. We also make an effort to protect your information off-line.
We require you to register with us before being able to access a specific section of our site – currently Community where we issue you a password. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. Also, remember to sign out of the registered site and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence when accessing your computer.
Correcting, Updating, Deleting or Deactivating Personal Information – If your personally identifiable information changes, you may contact us to correct, update, delete or deactivate our record of your personally identifiable information.
