womenanswers.org is firmly committed to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website, including the womenanswers.org.
The protection of your privacy being very important, we have adopted the following practices to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information. From time to time, changes to this Privacy Act will also be available on this site.
What information do you gather automatically from visitors?
We use your IP address (the series of numbers associated with your individual computer) to help us maintain our site and identify problems with our server. Your IP address does not disclose any personally revealing information about you.
What information will you ask me for?
When you register to use any womenanswers.org service you will be asked for some general identifying information which will enable us to provide you with this individualized service. We gather contact information (like your email address), demographic information (like your city of residence or age). We may share some of this information for our own research purposes with our professional advisors or consultants and third party partners. However the shared information will be limited to non-personally identifying demographic information shared under cover of a confidentiality agreement. We will only use this information in the course of providing our service to you.
Once you have registered, you will be given the option of editing of your profile (personal description, password and contact information).
How will this information be used and who has access to it?
If you choose to have them sent to you, we may use your contact information to send you valuable updates and timely notices of promotions and mailbox status reports. Our site provides you with the opportunity to opt-in to receiving different types of communications from us at the point where we request registration information. You may modify this choice at any time by selecting "Profile" from the top user menu. We reserve the right to use your contact information at any time to advise you of any updates that may materially affect your rights or status on our site.
Your non-personally identifying demographic information is used to personalize your experience, allow other members to find you through a search, to compose your personal profile - which is associated with a pseudonymous identity you have created. Your contact information are available to other members only if you pre-set this options, otherwise our default setting will allow other users to see your contact information only, without demographic characteristics. Non-registered users (visitors) have ability to send you personal message but they are not able to see your contact information until they subscribe and become a valid womenanswers.org community member. In the event that you decide to buy one of our products or services, you will be asked for your financial information (like credit card number) which cannot be read by others when you initiate your order through a secured system. You will know you are in secure mode when the tiny padlock icon - located at the bottom of your browser - appears "locked". We are using ClickBank company for billing purposes. ClickBank.com pledge that the information you enter will not be shared with any outside party without your expressed consent (does not include fraud cases) and that any emails you receive from ClickBank.com will be related to your order. However ClickBank is not the owner for this services, it's just a partner and billing processor. The personally identifiable information we collect from you is used for internet review and to improve the content and functionality of our web server or customize the layout of our pages for each individual member. The specific information we collect is not shared with other organizations and we will never release your personally identifiable information to an external organization without your prior consent except for the purposes of validating credit information and collecting debts. We may disclose your personally identifiable information if we reasonably believe we are required to do so by operation of law, which may include, but is not limited to a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on womenanswers.org.
Although womenanswers.org makes use of up to date technology in order to protect your pictures, audio and video recordings from being copied or captured by unauthorized third parties, please keep in mind that we cannot ensure complete protection.
How long do you keep the information I've given you?
We keep the information you have given us for as long as you are a member on the site or for as long as we are required to do so by law, which ever is longer.
Can I change the information I have already given you?
You can always verify or request the removal of the personally identifiable information we have collected and change your registration information by selecting "Profile" from the main menu on the site.
Do you monitor online behavior?
Members may choose to participate in community polls. The results of these polls do not reveal any personal identifiable information linked to the individual voters.
What security features do you have?
The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). SSL is the leading security protocol on the Internet, it ensures that information being transferred over the network is private through a process called encryption. Once encrypted the information is an unintelligible code until it is decoded upon arrival at the authorized destination.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal 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 personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
