The Site believes that it is especially important to protect children’s privacy online. The Site does not knowingly collect or use any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 and Site does not knowingly provide any personally identifiable information, regardless of its source, to any third party for any purpose whatsoever from visitors younger than 13 years old. No information should be submitted to or posted at the Site by visitors younger than 13 years old.
Like most website operators, Socialisting collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Socialisting’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Socialisting’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Socialisting may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Socialisting also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Socialisting.com listings. Socialisting only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that listing commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the listing where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Socialisting’s website choose to interact with Socialisting in ways that require Socialisting to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Socialisting gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at Socialisting.com to provide an email address, with Socialisting assigning a username. Socialisting collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Socialisting. Socialisting does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Socialisting may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, Socialisting may monitor the most popular listings on the Socialisting.com site or use spam screening services to help identify spam. Socialisting may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Socialisting does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Socialisting discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Socialisting’s behalf or to provide services available at Socialisting’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Socialisting’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Socialisting will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Socialisting discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Socialisting believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Socialisting, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of Socialisting, Socialisting may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Socialisting. We primarily use our site announcements to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Socialisting takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information. When Socialisting launches its message dispatch feature, you may receive messages summarizing recent listings from your friends and their friends. When such a feature launches, you will have the opportunity to opt-out and not receive such messages.
If Socialisting, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Socialisting goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquiror of Socialisting may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
