What Information We Collect
In connection with your use of our sites, we collect two types of information: "Anonymous information" and "personally identifiable information."
Anonymous information refers to information we cannot link to a specific individual. This information includes your IP address (the number assigned by your internet service provider on a session-by-session basis to identify your computer so that the web pages you request can be sent to you), referral data (such as the address of the last URL you visited prior to clicking through to one of our sites), and browser and platform type (such as a Netscape browser on a Mac platform). We use this anonymous information to tailor our sites to the needs and interests of our visitors and to improve our site by making it more responsive to those needs and interests.
Personally identifiable information tells us specifically who you are. We collect personally identifiable information about you when you use the Website (for example, when you register for certain services online, when you agree to participate in online surveys, when you make certain online information requests, when you opt in to receive an email newsletter, when you register to use our online commenting tool and when you participate in online contests and promotions) and when you register to become a Member of News8000.com. The personally identifiable information we collect may include your name, gender, postal address (including zip code), telephone number, user demographic information and email address. The Website also uses "cookies," which are small files that are sent to your computer’s hard drive when you visit the Website.
Please be advised that any personally identifiable information you provide (for example, by posting on the message boards or in open forums or chat rooms that we make available) can be viewed by all visitors to the site. Do not post any information that you do not want viewed by other users, and please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to remove any personally identifiable information about yourself that has been posted by you or another.
How We Use Personally Identifiable Information
We may edit this policy from time to time. If we make any substantial changes to it, we will endeavor to notify you by posting a prominent announcement on our pages. If, however, we are going to use users' personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify our users via email or by posting a notice on the site for 30 days
