We recognize that many visitors to our website and users of our applications are concerned about the information that they provide to us or that may be collected, and how we treat that information. In order to address those concerns we have developed this Privacy Statement.
Types Of Information Collected
Through the Services, we may collect both personally identifiable information and non-personal information from you.
1. Personally identifiable information. You don’t have to provide us with your personally identifiable information (such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, credit card number, etc.) in order to read some of what’s posted on the Site or through the Services. We may, however, collect personally identifiable information about you when you submit comments in response to one of our stories/articles, submit photos or other information to us, sign up to receive information from us, open an account with us, create a profile, subscribe to the Services, enter a contest, respond to a survey, email us, purchase something through the Services, or at times in which we alert you that you must submit personally identifiable information. Without this information, we would not be able to respond to your inquiries, submissions, entries and requests. Please also note that several features of the Services, such as advertisements, classified ads, contests or sweepstakes, polls or surveys, and blogs, may be provided or operated by third parties. These third parties may also obtain personally identifiable information from you in order to use their services. Please check their privacy policies for information about their privacy practices. In some cases these third parties may provide your personally identifiable information to us.
2. Non-personal information. Non-personal information, such as which pages are accessed, what information is downloaded, what type of device, browser or operating system is being used, which Internet service provider is being used, and other information of this general type may be collected about users of the Services. We, or third parties that provide or operate services on or through our Services, may track information about users’ online activities over time and across different websites. We may also collect the Internet Protocol (“IP”) address and geo-location of the users’ computer or mobile device as well ascertain webpages that you visited, browser type and settings, the date and time of your use, how you used our Services, and cookie data. By itself, this information does not allow us to personally identify the user of the Services. By collecting this information we learn how best to customize and develop our Services to meet the needs and desires of our users.
Information we Share with Third Parties
As a general rule, we will not share or otherwise disclose any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as we believe in good faith that the law requires it or under the following circumstances: 1) under confidentiality agreement, we may match user information with third party data; and 2) we may disclose aggregated user statistics (for example, 45% of our users are female) in order to describe our Services to prospective partners, advertisers, and other third parties, and for other lawful purposes.
Sharing by You
You will have the ability to share your User Content with another user(s). If you share your User Content with anyone, we shall have no liability to you (or anyone you share your User Content). We will not make any User Content that you keep private and do no share available to any third party except to a third party authorized by you to access such information or if the law requires.
Information You Generate, Submit and/or Post
You are solely responsible for the information you generate, submit and/or post on our website using our Services (as outlined in our Terms and Conditions of Use). PIC assumes no liability for the information you generate, submit and/or post on our website using our Services.
Accessing Your Personal Information
You may edit your personal account information with PIC at any time by using your unique identifier and password.
Protecting Your Information
Your personal account information with PIC is password protected so that you and only you have access to this personal information and the User Content therein. We recommend that you do not disclose your unique identifier or password to anyone. Also remember to sign out of your account and close your browser window when you have finished using our Services. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information or User Content.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online Services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
