Information we collect & how we use it
Automatically collected technical information: Our servers log information about each
device connecting with our site such as IP address, device characteristics, operating
system, browser type, type of connection, page and image viewing statistics, and incoming
and outgoing links. We associate this information with comments you post or votes you enter.
We also log the meta data associated with any images or videos you upload. None of this
automatically collected technical information is associated with any identified person at the
time it is collected, but it could be associated with you under two circumstances: First, if you
choose to give us personal data about you as described below, the technical information we
collect that would otherwise be anonymous could instead be logged as coming from you; and
second, if we are required to disclose our server logs as a result of a subpoena or other legal
process, some third party such as your internet provider could match our anonymous technical
information with you, using information beyond what is found on our servers.
Personal data you choose to give us: We collect whatever personal data about you that you choose to give us, such as name, address, email address, profile information, and credit card billing information. We consider such personal data to be "Private Data," and subject to the "Personal Data Protection" paragraph below, with the following exception: Any data (text, images, videos, etc.) you post to a public forum on our site, linked to or from our site, or share via a social networking function, will not be considered "Private Data" and will not be subject to the "Personal Data Protection" paragraph below.
