We are committed to protecting your privacy. We are also committed to the following: (1) we will not pass on any individual user details unless we have your prior consent; and (2) if we don’t have your consent to pass on individual user details, we will only give advertisers aggregate statistics about the number of users and their traffic patterns. However, if SoGlos changes hands, SoGlos reserves the right to transfer all information collected through this site to the new owner.
SoGlos does not require you to provide any personal information in order to access the site www.soglos.com. However, if you choose to fill-out reader surveys, enter competitions, leave a review/comment or join the forums you are asked to supply some mandatory and optional information about yourself, including, but not limited to: your name, address, phone number and email address – this information is collected to make SoGlos a valuable service to its readers. SoGlos keeps track of the number of visitors to the site, the pages they visit and how long they stay. In addition, SoGlos collects information from visitors who click on advertisements so that we are able to measure interest in the various areas of our site and inform advertisers as to how many visitors have seen or clicked on their advertisements. SoGlos also uses demographic and preference information to allow advertising banners on our site to be targeted, in the aggregate, to the readers for whom they are most pertinent.
We collect these kinds of aggregate user information for two main reasons: (1) to help us continually improve the service we offer; and (2) to sell advertisements and sponsorships on the site to appropriate advertisers. SoGlos discloses this information to advertisers. Please be aware that advertisers do not have influence over the editorial content or reviews that appear on the site.
When you give us your email address, you are also asked to let us know how we can use it: you can opt to allow us to email you our free weekly newsletter which will include information we believe to be of value to our users, as well as opting to allow this email address to be used occasionally by third party companies. Such requests are opt-in only, so that you do not inadvertently agree to receive mailings you do not want, and you can opt out at any time.
If we ever request that you volunteer additional information, such as geographical location or age (in an online survey, for example) your response will always be voluntary. In addition, there will always be a box for you to check if you choose to enable us to disclose such information to a third party.
2. On occasion, SoGlos sponsors special promotions, sweepstakes and contests that are hosted by partner websites, which may require that your browser accept cookies.
3. Required disclosures: SoGlos co-operates with all law-enforcement inquiries and reserves the right to disclose personally identifying or aggregate information in connection with a subpoena or other court-sanctioned demand for such information.
You should be aware that when you disclose personal information on any public forum or message board on this site or any other website that information can be collected and used by anyone who views that website and may result in unsolicited messages from other participants or other parties. SoGlos is not responsible for any such messages.
SoGlos has made a commitment to continually invest in the best-quality security available to guard access to information, data quality, and physical security of servers where information is stored. SoGlos maintains physical security on its premises and the site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Despite these efforts, we cannot guarantee that a hacker will not obtain access to communications between you and the site.
If you wish to review any personal information that SoGlos maintains about you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your request.
