1. About ABC and Information We Collect
ABC is a blog focused on news, facts, and analysis related to Asian Black Couples. Subscribing to ABC is completely optional and free to all subscribers. In the ABC subscription form, we ask you to provide us with certain information such as your first name and email address. ABC DOES NOT collect credit card details.
In the course of using ABC, we automatically track certain information such as your IP address, similar to the way that many sites collect this sort of information. We DO NOT tie your IP address to your personally identifiable information. We are not responsible for any personally identifiable information you choose to submit our advertising partners. If you send us personal correspondence, such as emails, or if other users or third parties send us correspondence about your activities or postings on the site, we may collect such information into a file which is only accessed by authorized personnel.
2. Our Use of Your Information
We internally use any information we collect from our site visitors to improve our marketing efforts, to statistically analyze site usage, to comply with applicable law, and to improve our content as well as to customize our site’s content and layout. We believe these uses allow us to improve our site and better tailor your online experience to meet your needs. We send periodic informational updates to our subscribed members via email. We DO NOT send e-mail advertisements to any ABC users. Users who no longer wish to receive our updates and communications may opt-out of receiving these communications by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in the email. In some cases we will also email users who have opted to receive communications from us, notifying them of the changes in our privacy practices or site policy.
3. Our Disclosure of Your Information
We DO NOT sell or rent any personally identifiable information about you to any third party without your permission. We do disclose information in aggregate to advertisers and for other marketing and promotional purposes. However, in these situations, we DO NOT disclose to these entities any information that could be used to personally identify you.
ABC will cooperate with all court ordered law enforcement inquiries and with all third parties to enforce their intellectual property or other rights. We reserve the right to disclose any information we have collected as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site.
4. Your Use of Other Users’ Information
At ABC, outside of blog post comments, it is very difficult for any user to see other users information. To the extent that you can access other user’s information, you may not use other user’s information for commercial purposes, to spam, to harass, or to make unlawful threats. Additionally, ABC reserves the right to terminate your access to any ABC pages for any reason, particularly when we learn of or observe unacceptable behavior on your part.
5. Control of Your Password
You may not disclose your password to any third parties or share it with any third parties. If despite the foregoing, you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personally identifiable information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately change your password.
6. Reviewing and Changing Your Personally Identifiable Information
With ABC, once you subscribe, you WILL be able to change any of your personally identifiable information at ABC. Please promptly update your information if it changes by logging in to your account and following the screen prompts. We strongly urge you to periodically change your password to help reduce the risk of unauthorized access to your subscriber information. Also ABC DOES NOT collect or retain any credit card information.
7. Third Party Collections of Information
Our policy only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. To the extent that you disclose your information to other parties or other sites throughout the Internet, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the personal information you disclose to them. While ABC works closely with our partners to ensure the highest privacy to you, we encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.
ABC has security measures in place to protect and prevent the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
ABC subscribers can modify or remove their subscriber information at any time.
