§1. Information Collection
§2. Information Use
Sitefeatures include the downloading of images and videos, uploading of images, and searching for site media.
We store information that we collect through cookies, database records, and log files. A profile is stored information that we keep on individual users, which details their optional viewing preferences (e.g. Group Favorites). If a user does not explicitly store viewing preferences, none are collected or stored. Consequently, this optional information is tied to the users personally identifiable information to improve the content of the site for the user. This profile is used to tailor a users visit to our Web site. We do not share your profile with other third parties. Your profile is stored with your username and password, but not with any personally identifiable data from your billing information. Also, we do not reveal personal viewing preferences in any customer support tools.
Cookies contain information collected at signup time, including IP address, referrer, and username.
§5. Log Files
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 users movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are tied to personally identifiable information which is used only in matters of site abuse and security. We use a log analyzing utility which uses log files to analyze user movement in the aggregate.
§6. Communications from the Site
§6.1. Special Offers and Updates
We send all new members a validation email containing a hyperlink which validates their email address in order to complete registration on our site. Free members will occasionally receive information on products, services, and special deals. Paid users do not receive these emails.
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.
We communicate with users on a regular basis to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account via email and our web-based contact form.
§7.1. Legal Disclaimer
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.
We do not share personal information with third parties with the following exceptions.
We use credit card processing companies to authenticate and bill users for services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
In the event usenetbrowser.net goes through a business transition, such as a merger, being acquired by another company, or selling a portion of its assets, users' personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred.
In the event an attempt is made by any user to disrupt our service, circumvent our Terms of Service, or otherwise engage in activity which causes us concern regarding the normal operation of our service or site security, we reserve the right to share personal information with ISP administrators in order to resolve the issue and/or personally identify the user for further action
Since all personal information is not optionally shared with third parties, there is no opt-out of information use at usenetbrowser.net. Promotional emails are a mandatory condition of free accounts.
This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we, usenetbrowser.net, are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.
§10. Reservation of Rights
The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Anonymous Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site. User's personally identifiable information is not shared with third parties unless we give prior notice and choice. Though we may use an intermediary to conduct these surveys or contests, they may not use user's personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes
§11. Email to a Friend
If a user elects to use our Email To a Friend service for sending images to a friend, we ask them for the friends email address. usenetbrowser.net will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the site containing the selected media and associated images. usenetbrowser.net stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our referral program.
§12. Upload Form
The post will include the user's email address they used to sign up with usenetbrowser.net. Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example on message boards, through e-mail, Usenet, or in chat areas - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, by posting personal information online that is publicly accessible, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return
