Our reputation and integrity is directly related to how we serve the Internet community. Below please find a description of how we are committed to safeguarding your privacy while at the same time setting standards by which others will hopefully follow thereby preserving the Internet as a credible medium for future generations to come.

1.  What personal information do you collect from me?

     Applying for memberhip in the club consists of completing a membership application form which requests your contact information. Because we value our privacy as much as you do yours, we do not disclose any personally identifyable information about you, other your first name, except that information which is disclosed in Items 2 and 3 below and in those instances such information is collected only in the aggregate. The club does offer personal profile pages where members are encouraged, but not obligated, to complete in order to share information about themselves with fellow club members. Such personal information is not disclosed outside of the club.

     From time-to-time we may also place an occasional survey or questionnaire on our site which you are always free to participate. However, by voluntarily completing one of these surveys or questionnaires you will help us better serve you. Wherever a survey or questionnaire asks you for personal information, we always make every effort to include a link to this Privacy Policy. We do not sell or rent such personal information to anyone.


2.  What are cookies and how do you use them?

     We may use cookies to improve your web browsing experience. For example, online advertisements that may be served by us may assign a unique random ID to your computer's web browser, this process is commonly referred to in cyberspace as a "cookie." We do this to understand the way you respond to the advertisments we deliver. For example, this ID lets us keep track of how many times you view an advertisement that we distribute. Likewise, the cookie can help rotate our advertisements, giving you the opportunity to see a variety of advertisments rather than the same advertisement over and over again, thus, enhancing your online web viewing experience and making our website more profitable at the same time.

     From time-to-time, we may also use cookies to:

    (1)    Estimate Our Audience Size. Each browser accessing our website may be given a unique cookie which is then used to determine the extent and duration of a visitor's usage.

    (2)    Measure Traffic Patterns. In measuring certain traffic patterns of our website we are able to determine which sections of it you have visited and your visiting patterns in the aggregate. With this information we are better able to expand those sections of our website which are most often utilized by our visitors and give more detail to the ones which are least visited.

    (3)    Third Party Measurement Services. On occasion, some of our advertisers will employ a third-party measurement service for the tracking and performance of a particular advertising campaign. In these instances, we have no control over the information being collected by the third party and, therefore, we may not be held responsible for the actions of the third party where such collected information is concerned. If you have any questions regarding a specific third party measurement service and their respective method of information collection, please contact us.

     We may also from time-to-time collect IP addresses for use in system auditing and administration and, in some instances, we may report such aggregate information to our advertisers, sponsors, affiliates and/or partners.


3.  What is Behavorial Targeting and how is it used?

     We may use third-party advertising companies to help us serve advertisements which might appear on our website. By visiting our website, as well as other websites, these third-party companies may use your web surfing habits on an aggregated basis (which does NOT include your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address) in order to provide advertisements about goods and services that might be of interest to you, as opposed to just showing you random advertisements. Because your behavior, i.e., your recent web surfing habits, these advertisements are targeted towards those areas of interest. For instance, if you recently visited several pet websites, you might see pet related advertisements. Hence, in the Internet advertising community, this is known as "Behavorial Targeting."

     If you would like more information about this practice and want to know more about your choices of whether or not to allow this information to be used by these third-party companies, you may visit the NetworkAdvertising.org website and choose to opt-out of behavorial targeting.

     We do not do any behavorial targeting of our own.


4.  Who is collecting my information?

     Should you happen to voluntarily complete one of our demographic surveys, rest assured any personal information obtained via the survey, i.e. age, occupation, etc., will only be used to make our website a better experience for future vistors. Such information may from time to time be collected by third parties but only collected in the aggregate. By knowing our vistiors' demographics, you are helping us expand those areas of interest which attract the most visitor attention.

     From time-to-time we may be involved in several affiliate programs. These programs are conducted by reputable companies that have separate privacy polices and data collection practices. We have no responsibility or liability for these independent policies. For more information regarding these affiliate programs and their privacy policies, please visit these affiliate sites and review their separate policy regarding your privacy.

     We have visited, reviewed and eliminated websites from our website which we feel are malicious or which exist solely to collect personal information from you, usually to sell or trade to others. Nothwithstanding this effort, you should be aware that our website does contain links to a few websites that may collect some personally identifiable information about you. The information practices of those websites are not covered under this Privacy Policy. Please consult these Websites for their own privacy policy to understand how they may treat your personal information.


5.  How is my information being used?

     Currently, no personally identifiable information is being used by us, except for survey results (see Section 4, Paragraph 1 above) and in those instances such information is only used in the aggregate.


6.  Who are you sharing my information with?

     We do not disclose any personally identifiable information about you except when we have your permission or under special circumstances. Some special circumstances may include, but are not limited to, the following:

    (1)    Aggregated User Statistics. We may disclose aggregated user statistics (for example, frequency of visits, demographics, survey results, etc.) in order to best describe our services and visitor base to prospective advertisers, affiliates and/or partners.

    (2)    Other Lawful Instances. We may disclose user information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to, or interference (either intentionally or unintentionally) with, our rights or property, other visitors, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. We may also disclose such user information when we believe, in good faith, that the law requires it.


7.  What choices do I have regarding the collection, use and distribution of my information?

     Because we strongly believe in your right to privacy, we take this time to alert you to the several choices you have with respect to cookies. By modifying your web browser's preferences, you have the ability to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is about to be set, or to reject cookies altogether. Please consult your web browser's help section for more information on how to change your viewing preferences.

     Rest assured that we do not sell or rent our members' or users' information to anyone.


8.  What kind of security precautions do you take to protect my information from misuse?

     Unfortunately, cyberspace has not yet evolved to a realm where the Internet is a totally secure environment. Consequently, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us. However, once we are in receipt of a transmission from you, we make every effort to ensure its security while it is in our possession, custody or control, including limiting the availability of your personal information to only key officers or directors.


9.  How do you serve to protect children's privacy?

     The safety of children surfing the Internet is of great importantance to us. As such, we do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children of any age. Notwithstanding this, children should always ask a parent for permission before sending any personal information to us, or to anyone else in cyberspace for that matter. We do not share personal information about its visitors with third parties regardless of their age, except as outlined in herein, and in those instances only in the aggregate.

     We have fully complied with the requirements of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 as well as the recommendations regarding the same as published by the Federal Trade Commission. In our attempt to better serve our younger audience, our actions not to seek out personally identifiable information from persons under the age of 13 without prior written permission from their parents or guardians pre-dates the concerns of Congress and the aforementioned legislative Act. Rest assured, while visiting our website, your children will be treated as if they were our own. We take every precaution to keep our content and your children's privacy our top concern.


10.  What else should I know about online privacy?

     Please keep in mind and be aware that whenever you voluntarily disclose any personal information online, i.e. through e-mail, usenet newsgroups, message boards or in chat arenas, such information may be collected and used by others. In essence, if you post personal information online it becomes part of the public domain and, thus, you can expect to receive some unsolicited messages and advertisements, commonly referred to in cyberspace as "spam." Some of these may come from less than reputable people and sources.
