Account Information: If you create an account, we’ll collect certain information that can be used to identify you, such as your name, email address, postal address, and phone number (“PII”).
We will collect all the information that you provide to us via your articles and other content that you submit on our website. So please use discretion when submitting articles and other content to our services.
Our servers automatically record certain information about how a person uses our services (we refer to this information as “Log Data”), including both account holders and non-account holders (either, a “User”). Log Data may include information such as a User’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, operating system, the web page that a User was visiting before accessing our services, the pages or features of our services to which a User browsed and the time spent on those pages or features, search terms, the links on our services that a User clicked on and other statistics. We use Log Data to administer the services and we analyze (and may engage third parties to analyze) Log Data to improve, customize and enhance our services by expanding their features and functionality and tailoring them to our Users’ needs and preferences. We may use a person’s IP address to generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how our services are used.
We collect certain information that your device sends when you use our services, like a device identifier, user settings, and the operating system of your device, as well as information about your use of our services.
When you use our website, we may collect and store information about your location by converting your IP address into a rough geo-location. We may use location information to improve and personalize our Services for you.
Our website does not have the capability to respond to “Do Not Track” signals received from various web browsers.
We take reasonable administrative, physical, and electronic measures designed to protect the information that we collect from or about you (including your PII) from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. When you enter sensitive information on our forms, we encrypt this data using SSL or other technologies. Please be aware, however, that no method of transmitting information over the Internet or storing information is completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of any information.
Our services are not directed to children under 14 and we do not knowingly collect PII from children under 14. If we learn that we have collected the PII of a child under 14 we will take steps to delete such information from our files as soon as possible.
