A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s computer tied to information
about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable
information while on our site. We use both session ID cookies and persistent
cookies. For the session ID cookie, once users close the browser, the cookie
simply terminates. A persistent cookie is a small text file stored on the
user’s hard drive for an extended period of time.
By setting a cookie on our site, users would be able to cache certain data
that is displayed on our site, thereby increasing the speed of which this site loads.
However, we have no access to or control over these cookies, once we have given
permission for them to set cookies for advertising.
The ads appearing on this Web site are delivered to users by TextAds.biz and
Blog Ads our Web advertising partners. Information about users’ visit to
this site, such as number of times they have viewed an ad (but not user name,
address, or other personal information), is used to serve ads to users on this
site. For more information about TextAds.biz, please click here

Like most standard Web site servers we use log files. This includes internet protocol
(IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit
pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends,
administer the site, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad
demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked
to personally identifiable information.
We employ or our third party advertising company employs a software technology
called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content
on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics
with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track
the online movements of Web users. The main difference between the two is that
clear gifs are invisible on the page and are much smaller, about the size of
the period at the end of this sentence. Clear gifs are not tied to users’
personally identifiable information.
Clear Gifs can "work with" existing cookies on a computer if they are both from
the same Web site or advertising company. That means, for example, that if a
person visited “www.companyX.com”, which uses an advertising company's clear
gif, the Web site or advertising company would match the clear gif's
identifier and the advertising company's cookie ID number, to show the past
online behavior for that computer. This collected information would then be
given to the advertising company or Web site.
On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service related
announcement. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for
maintenance we might send users an email. Generally, users may not opt-out of
these communications, though they can deactivate their account. However,
these communications are not promotional in nature.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose
personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief
that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a
court order or legal process served on our Web site.
We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and
advertisers. This is not linked to any personally identifiable information.
