PERSONAL INFORMATION-WHY AND HOW “IP ADDRESSES” ARE USED
An IP address is a basic element of the way the Internet functions. It is a number that identifies your computer according to its IP address, and IP numbers are assigned to web sites automatically. IP addresses may also be identified in “header” information on emails. There may also be other services and occasions when IP addresses will appear. Always look carefully at what information may be displayed about you, including your IP address, and if you are unsure or uncomfortable about the appearance of your IP address, do not use that service.
In addition to being an important part of how computers communicate with each other correctly, IP addresses can be used for other things, as well. In How to Start a Blog Online’s case, IP addresses are collected for smooth operation in administrating our Web Site system, for purposes of collecting the non-personal “grouping” information for use by How to Start a Blog Online and certain third parties, as discussed above, and to generally monitor the use of howtostartablogonline.com. IP addresses are exchanged many times when you are surfing the web, so, for example, if you select a web page or link within How to Start a Blog Online, the IP address is recorded by the server by which How to Start a Blog Online’s Web Site is connected to the internet.
For most purposes, your IP address will not be connected with personally identifying information, only the fact of that access to a given place on our web sites gets noted, but who you are individually will be anonymous, even to How to Start a Blog Online. However, as with certain information discussed in other parts of this document, IP Address information will be used to help us identify a person if How to Start a Blog Online, in good faith, believes it important for ensuring proper compliance with our rules and policies, if it appears to be necessary to comply with laws and to protect How to Start a Blog Online, our members and customers or other third parties.
PERSONAL INFORMATION-OPTING OUT
How to Start a Blog Online, our affiliates or selected third parties may use personal information you give How to Start a Blog Online for marketing and promotions. You do not have to let us use this information in that manner. This is called “opting out,” and it means you can tell us not to use your personal information for these purposes:
i. Listing you in any Customer/Member directory,
ii. Receiving information from us about How to Start a Blog Online and our services and products, or
iii. Receiving information from third parties selected by us because, for example, your interests seem to match services or products they offer. To opt out, contact firstname.lastname@example.org, modify your personal information or cancel your Membership.
In addition, there may be specific opt-out processes available when you enter certain areas of our Web Site, join groups, use services or when other merchandise is offered. When you see such opt-out notices, read them for information on how to opt out at that time. Also, some promotions may ask if you’d like additional information. Choosing to ask for additional information may require transfer of your email address, but if more personal information than that is required, you will be notified prior to such information being transmitted and may opt out by cancelling the request at that time.
OTHER IMPORTANT COMPANY PRIVACY ISSUES
A “Cookie” is a small file sent to and stored in your computer to keep accurate records and customize certain services. In fact, it’s become so common that you can almost always expect cookies to be sent to your computer from a wide variety of Internet sites.
For How to Start a Blog Online, cookies are designed to try to make your visits more personal and helpful according to the ways you use our Web Sites. They tell us the name that a Customer/Member uses at How to Start a Blog Online and can tailor things like greetings, e-cards and so-forth to make your use of How to Start a Blog Online feel like you’re right at home. They can also tell us, for example, that you focus on particular types of information you need as a Customer/Member, and the cookie may automatically see to it that when you log in you get a message about some new feature in your areas of interest or about other services that fit the way you use How to Start a Blog Online. Also, sometimes when messages are sent to certain How to Start a Blog Online destinations, like “customer service,” a cookie may be used to help process your message more efficiently and accurately.
However, cookies at How to Start a Blog Online are never used for storing or accessing important personal information that you alone should control the use of-like your password or your credit card number.
Even though cookies are usually thought to be helpful to web sites and their users alike, not everybody wants them being put in their computer. That’s okay, but there are two things you need to know: if you don’t have cookies, not everything on your How to Start a Blog Online visits may be accessible, as efficient or as personable; and, stopping cookies is something we can’t do, instead you have to do it in your own computer.
SPECIAL CONCERNS ABOUT HYPERLINKS
In this document, there are buttons or underlined words and phrases that you can click on. You will find these all over our Web Site and nearly every other web site you visit throughout the Internet, too. Some of them link to other parts of the same web site, but others will send you to another site unrelated to the web site you were at. This kind of link is called a hyperlink and could send you to a web page a block away or on the other side of the world.
We can take no responsibility or protect you on other web sites, so always be careful-not just about things like opting out on advertising, but also about safety and security. Once again, carefully protect personal information about yourself, and be wary of who might get such information, especially the public through chat-rooms, bulletin boards or by email. Not being careful about this can be risky, and because How to Start a Blog Online can’t control these hyperlinked sites or users, and because our own policies and rules don’t apply, the risk is on you to decide how, and how not, to use them.
IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO DO SO, STOP VISITING OUR WEB SITES.
