Privacy

COMMITMENT TO YOUR PRIVACY
This site is owned and operated by McCombie Marketing Solutions. Your privacy on the Internet is of
the utmost importance to us. At McCombie Marketing Solutions, 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 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.
Definition of the Information McCombie Marketing Solutions gathers and keeps track of.
McCombie Marketing Solutions 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 participate in our message
boards or forums, to email a friend, and from participation in polls and surveys:
· Information McCombie Marketing Solutions gathers through aggregated tracking information
derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. This information allows us
to better tailor our content to readers’ needs and to help our advertisers and sponsors
better understand the demographics of our audience. Because McCombie Marketing Solutions derives its
revenue mainly from sponsorships and advertising, providing such aggregated
demographic data is essential to keeping our service free to users. Under no
circumstances does McCombie Marketing Solutions divulge any information about an individual user to
a third party.
McCombie Marketing Solutions Gathers User Information In The Following Processes:
Optional Voluntary Information
We offer the following free services, which require some type of voluntary submission of
personal information by users:
1. Electronic Newsletters (Dispatches).
We will offer a free electronic newsletter to users. <> 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.
2. Message Boards/Forums.
Users of the site’s Message Boards and Forums must register separately for these
services (both are free of charge) in order to post messages, although they needn’t
register to visit the site. During registration the user is required to supply a username,
password, and email address.
3. “Email this to a friend” Service.
Our site users can choose to electronically forward a link, page, or documents to
someone else by clicking “email 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.
4. 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.
<> 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.
5. Surveys.
<> may occasionally 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
Consistent with the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA),
we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under
the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.
USAGE TRACKING
McCombie Marketing Solutions tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do
not correlate this information with data about individual users. McCombie Marketing Solutions 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).
Mccombie Marketing Solutions 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. McCombie Marketing Solutions 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.
USE OF INFORMATION
McCombie Marketing Solutions 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 to enable users to participate in polls, surveys, message
boards, and forums. We send out 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. McCombie Marketing Solutions
never shares newsletter mailing 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.
McCombie Marketing Solutions 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 ad. 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
McCombie Marketing Solutions 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.
SECURITY
McCombie Marketing Solutions operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall
and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically
reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the
information provided by our customers.
OPT-OUT POLICY
We give users options wherever necessary and practical. Such choices include:
· Opting not to register to receive our electronic newsletters.
· Opting not to participate in certain interactive areas, which completely alleviates
the need to gather any personally identifiable information from our users
YOUR CONSENT
By using this site, you consent to the collection and use of this information by
McCombie Marketing Solutions. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on
this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it,
and under what circumstances we disclose it.
