When you submit your name and email to subscribe to our newsletter, that information is used only for purposes of sending the newsletter or similar updates from us.   Your information is kept strictly confidential with our website service provider and is never sold, rented or viewed by others.  There are clear “unsubscribe” links at the bottom of every email newsletter we send. 

Log Files
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or Comcast), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.

Cookies and Web Beacons
We do use cookies to store information, such as your personal preferences when you visit our site. This could include only showing you a popup once in your visit, or the ability to login to some of our features, such as forums.

We also may use third party advertisements to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).

You can turn off the use of cookies at anytime by changing your specific browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.

Facebook & Twitter Conversion Tracking
To reach new customers and to understand the effectiveness of ad campaigns, we are exploring the use of Facebook and Twitter ad platforms. This means we may use a technology called Facebook Conversion Tracking. This allows us to track those visitors who have been referred through a Facebook page, application or advertisement and then visited the Website within a certain time period.

Information regarding your visit to the Website is shared with Facebook but this will not include any information specific to your application or other personal information. Facebook will use this information to monitor, on our behalf, the effectiveness of our advertising and applications.

The information shared with Facebook will only be used in accordance with Facebook's data use policy at www.facebook.com/about/privacy. Facebook Conversion Tracking may also enable us and our partners to serve ads on and off Facebook.

As we explore advertising options, we may also use Twitter Conversion and Remarketing tracking which will track your activity. Twitter's Privacy Policy is http://twitter.com/privacy.
