PRIVACY POLICY

 

COMMITMENT TO YOUR PRIVACY

This site is owned and operated by Inteletix Corporation. Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. At Inteletix Corporation, we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe.

Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand our policy and the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.

 

INFORMATION INTELETIX CORP GATHERS AND TRACKS

Inteletix Corporation gathers two types of information about users:

  • Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to receive our electronic newsletters, to receive information about products and services, to order products, to participate in our message boards or forums, to email a friend, and from participation in polls and surveys.
  • Information Inteletix Corporation gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. This information allows us to better tailor our content to reader’s needs and to help our advertisers and sponsors better understand the demographics of our audience. Because Inteletix Corporation may derive revenue from sponsorships and advertising, providing such aggregated demographic data is essential to keeping our service free to users. Under no circumstances does Inteletix Corporation divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.

Inteletix Corporation gathers user information In the following processes:

Electronic newsletters and e-mailing list policy (Dispatches)

We will offer a free electronic newsletter and periodic e-mails to users. Inteletix Corporation gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the link provided in every newsletter that points users to the subscription management page. Users can also subscribe to the newsletters at the time of registration.

"E-mail this to a friend" policy

Our site users may choose to electronically forward a link, page, or documents to someone else by clicking "e-mail this to a friend". The user must provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient. This information is used only in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent the email. The information is not used for any other purpose.

Polling

We may offer interactive polls to users so they can easily share their opinions with other users and see what our audience thinks about important issues. Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable to any particular user. Inteletix Corporation may use a system to "tag" users after they have voted, so they can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is not correlated with information about individual users.

Surveys

Inteletix Corporation may conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our sponsors, advertisers and partners. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.

Children

We will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.

Usage tracking

Inteletix Corporation tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. Inteletix Corporation does break down overall usage statistics according to a user’s domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user’s browser).

Inteletix Corporation sometimes tracks and catalogs the search terms that users enter in our Search function, but this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.

Cookies

We may place a text file called a "cookie" in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain Personal Information although it will enable us to relate your use of this site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can’t read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Inteletix Corporation uses cookies to track user traffic patterns (as described above). Our advertising system delivers a one-time cookie to better track ad impressions and click rates.

You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. If you’ve set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, you will receive the warning message with each cookie. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use this site. However, you do need cookies to participate actively in message boards, forums, polling and surveys.

Links to other websites

Our website may contain links to other websites. As we do not have control over the other websites we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide while on those sites. You should read the privacy statement applicable to those websites.

 

USE OF INFORMATION

Inteletix Corporation uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience in our network of sites, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the sites or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.

As stated above, we use information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out electronic newsletters and e-mails, and to enable users to participate in polls, and surveys. We send out e-mails and newsletters to subscribers on a regular schedule (depending on the newsletter), and occasionally send out special editions when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing. Inteletix Corporation never shares newsletter or e-mail lists with any third parties, including advertisers, sponsors or partners.

When we use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you. We track search terms entered in Search function as one of many measures of what interests our users. But we don’t track which terms a particular user enters.

Inteletix Corporation creates aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns for advertisers, sponsors and partners. This allows our advertisers to advertise more effectively, and allows our users to receive advertisements that are pertinent to their needs. Because we don’t track the usage patterns of individual users, an advertiser or sponsor will never know that a specific user clicked their advertisement. We will not disclose any information about any individual user except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.

 

SHARING OF THE INFORMATION

Inteletix Corporation uses the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs and help our advertisers better understand our audience’s demographics. This is essential to keeping our service free. We will not share information about individual users with any third party, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
