Last Updated: September 4, 2012

Our goal is to help you make informed decisions about the personal information you share with us. This privacy policy addresses how we collect, use, share, and protect your personal information.

1. Collection and Use

Personal information is not collected on this website. However, modern browsers do transmit the originating nation of your internet service. Our web host collects this information so that we can better provide you with content. However, no information is directly identifiable to you, such as your name, address, email address, and phone number, as well as other non-public information associated with such information. Some examples of how we collect and use personal information include:

  • Website. When you visit our website, your IP address, browser, reference site domain name, and the pages you visit may be logged. This data is used to improve the content and functionality of the website and the services provided to you. This information is not shared with any other entity.
  • Feedback and Postings. When you provide us feedback, post comments on our forums, or send us correspondence, we may collect the information you submit to address the purpose of your communication. This information is not shared with any other entity.

We generally use the personal information we obtain from you to provide you with the services you request; customize your experience; troubleshoot and provide updates; measure interest in articles; detect and protect against error, fraud and criminal activity; comply with applicable law, regulations, legal processes or enforceable governmental requests; enforce our terms of use and for other legitimate business purposes; and as otherwise described to you at the time of collection.

2. Sharing and Transfer

We do not share, disclose, or transfer your personal information. If we remove or disable this website, your personal information is destroyed and only backups of comments are retained.

3. Access and Accuracy

Users are in control of their access to this website, unless removed for violating our Terms of Use policy.

4. Security

We use a variety of industry-standard security technologies, as well as administrative, managerial, and physical safeguards, to help protect sensitive personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. No data transmissions through the Internet or mobile devices, or even the physical transfer of information, can be guaranteed by anyone to be completely secure. We cannot fully eliminate all security risks associated with personal information and technical mistakes are possible. Therefore, we do not ensure or warrant the security of any data or information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk.

5. Children

Our website and services are suitable for children under the age of 13 with parental guidance. We do not knowingly collect personal information about children under 13 for website purposes. If we learn that a child under 13 has submitted personal information to us, we will delete this information as soon as possible.

We do not use cookies. Cookies are small pieces of information stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive or on your device. Your login information may be stored on your system by your browser or security software. We have no responsibility for that process. Each browser is different, so please check the help menu of your browser.

7. Links

Our website may display links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by us. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of such sites and understand their privacy practices.
