Privacy Policy

INTRODUCTION

The website owner takes your right to privacy seriously, and wants you to feel comfortable using this website. This Privacy Policy deals with personally-identifiable information (referred to as "data" below) that may be collected by this website. This Privacy Policy does not apply to other entities that are not owned or controlled by the website owner, nor does it apply to persons that are not employees or agents of the website owner, or that are not under the website owner’s control. Please take time to read this website’s Terms of Use.

1. Collection of Data

Registration for an account on this website requires only a valid e-mail address and a user name that has not been chosen already. You are not required to provide any other information if you do not want to. Please be aware that the user name you choose, the e-mail address you provide and any other information you enter may render you personally identifiable, and may possibly be displayed on this website intentionally (depending on choices you make during the registration process, or depending on the way in which the website is configured) or unintentionally (subsequent to a successful act of intrusion by a third party). As on many websites, the website owner may also automatically receive general information that is contained in server log files, such as your IP address, and cookie information. Information about how advertising may be served on this website (if it is indeed the site owner’s policy to display advertising) is set forth below.

2. Use of Data

Data may be used to customize and improve your user experience on this website. Efforts will be made to prevent your data being made available to third parties unless:

  1. provided for otherwise in this Privacy Policy;
  2. your consent is obtained, such as when you choose to opt-in or opt-out for the sharing of data;
  3. a service provided on our website requires interaction with a third party, or is provided by a third party, such as an application service provider;
  4. pursuant to legal action or law enforcement;
  5. it is found that your use of this website violates the website owner’s Privacy Policy, Terms of Use, or other usage guidelines, or if it is deemed reasonably necessary by the website owner to protect the website owner’s legal rights and/or property; or
  6. this website is purchased by a third party, in which case that third party will be able to use the data in the same manner as set forth in this Privacy Policy. In the event you choose to use links displayed on this web website to visit other websites, you are advised to read the privacy policies published on those websites.

3. Cookies

Like many websites, this website sets and uses cookies to enhance your user experience — to remember your personal settings, for instance. Advertisements may display on this website and, if so, may set and access cookies on your computer; such cookies are subject to the privacy policies of the parties providing the advertisement. However, the parties providing the advertising do not have access to this website’s cookies.

4. Minors

Visitors of all ages are welcome to visit and use the website. However, to register on the website (provided that registrations are open) you must be at least 13 years of age.

5. Changes to this Privacy Policy

Changes may be made to this Privacy Policy from time to time. You will be notified of substantial changes to this Privacy Policy either by through the posting of a prominent announcement on the website, and/or by a mail message sent to the e-mail address you have provided, which is stored within your user settings.

6. NO GUARANTEES

While this Privacy Policy states standards for maintenance of data, and while efforts will be made to meet the said standards, the website owner is not in a position to guarantee compliance with these standards. There may be factors beyond the website owner’s control that may result in disclosure of data. Consquently, the website owner offers no warranties or representations as regards maintenance or non-disclosure of data.
