Cookies

We use "cookies" on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site. We do not use cookies or any information for that matter to allow third parties to serve advertisements.

Sharing of Data (and how that relates to our business model)

We do nt share your personal data, in part or in aggregate, to third party advertisers or outside interests. Our business model is unique in the social media market as we are not a free service. As such we simply do not share your personal information, in part or in aggregate, to serve advertisements or to any outside third party interest. Other social media services are free and their business model demands they share your personal information to third party advertisers. Our business model is a subscription and partnership with you. We serve no ads and we do not partner outside entities that do not meet our strict protection standards. Your subscription is your guarantee that we will not share your data.

We follow all US laws and cooperate with state, local and federal authorities. If presented with a legal court warrant or order, we will, to the best of our ability, collect the data requested and provide that data to the authorities.

Service Providers

We may employ third-party companies and individuals due to the following reasons:

  • To facilitate our Service;
  • To provide the Service on our behalf;
  • To perform Service-related services; or
  • To assist us in analyzing how our Service is used.
  •  
    We want to inform our Service users that these third parties may have access to your Personal Information. The reason is to perform the tasks assigned to them on our behalf. However, they are obligated not to disclose or use the information for any other purpose.

    Security

    We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the Web page.

    While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

    To use this website, a user must first complete the registration form. During registration, a user is required to give certain information (such as name and email address and age). This information is used to contact you about the products/services on our site in which you have expressed interest. At your option, you may also provide demographic information (such as gender) about yourself, but it is not required.

    Surveys & Contests

    From time-to-time our site requests information via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you may choose whether to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level).
