Reptide Media (“Publisher”) is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. Please read the following statement to understand how your personal information will be treated as you make full use of our services.
Publisher complies with the U.S. – E.U. Safe Harbor Framework and the U.S. – Swiss Safe Harbor Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal data from European Union member countries and Switzerland. Publisher has certified that it adheres to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement. To learn more about the Safe Harbor program, please visit http://www.export.gov/safeharbor/
The program covers only information that is collected through this website, and does not cover information that may be collected through other advertisers or service providers on our site or information that users download from other advertisers or service providers. We use aggregated (gathered up data) information to develop content targeted to users' interests and to better the website user experience. Publisher is committed to your privacy and other than as provided herein or after receiving your specific consent, Publisher will not share any personal information with any third party at any time, unless required by law.
Publisher does not collect personally identifying information about any individual Publisher website user except when knowingly provided by such individual. For example, we may ask you for information, such as your e-mail address when you register to become a member of Publisher. You may also provide information to Publisher in other contexts, including, for example, on your member profile page and public profile URL or to enter into a sweepstakes or promotion. In the event you order something from Publisher or one of our co-branded websites, we may request additional personal information, such as your address, telephone number and credit card information, in order to complete the purchase. We also supplement the data you provide to us with data from data append services. You always have the option not to provide the information we request. If you choose not to provide the information we request, you can still visit most of the Publisher’s website, but you may be unable to access certain options and services. When you register or become a member of Publisher or provide information to Publisher in any other manner, you agree to provide only true, accurate, current and complete information.
We use web beacons (invisible images often referred to as pixel tags or clear GIFs) on our sites in order to recognize users, assess traffic patterns, identify preferred content, and measure site engagement. Publisher also uses a reputable third party to collect information, including through the use of web beacons, browser cookies and other tracking technologies. We may collect via web beacons various data provided by your browser while you are on our site and elsewhere where we may be acting as a 3rd party. This data is collected in the aggregate, but may include or be associated with other non-PII (non-personally identifiable information) that users have voluntarily submitted.
Publisher web and ad servers log information about a site user's IP address, browser type and the current URL the user is requesting. Log File information is always provided by each and every user's browser. This information is automatically logged by most websites.
Publisher derives the majority of its revenue from advertising and sharing information is essential to keeping our services affordable to users. In order to attract and retain advertisers we use the aggregated, anonymous information that we gather (as well as information from third-party market researchers) to describe our services to partners and to assist our advertisers and sponsors to better understand our audience. We do not disclose personally identifying information about our users to these parties.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of newsletter mailings, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service. In some instances these companies may collect information directly from you. In these cases, you will be notified of the involvement of the external service provider. In all cases, these companies are subject to agreements that require them to maintain the confidentiality of your information and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
Publisher may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to conform to the edicts of the law or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process served on Publisher.com or to protect and defend the rights or property of Publisher.
Your information is stored on Publisher's servers located in the United States. We use industry standard procedural and technical safeguards to protect your personal information against loss or theft as well as unauthorized access and disclosure to protect your privacy, including encryption, "firewalls" and the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). We treat data as an asset that must be protected against loss and unauthorized access. We employ many different security techniques to protect such data from unauthorized access by users inside and outside the company. However, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet.
Kids under 13: Do not send any information about yourself to us--including information such as your name, address, or e-mail address. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. In the event that we learn we have collected any personal information from a child under the age of 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information from our database as quickly as possible.
