What Personal Information About Users Does CivicX Store?
The information provided to CivicX is varied but limited in scope and is provided by you.
Information You Give Us: With registration, we store the registered username, registered e-mail address, IP address and registered password. Your password is encoded in such a way that we cannot retrieve your raw password. This information is stored locally and never given out!
E-mail: Occasionally, when really big news comes across our desk, we will send out an e-mail to your registered address to inform you of this news. You have the option to opt-out of any emails sent from our website by selecting the option in our user control panel. We do not under any circumstances sell, trade or otherwise give out e-mail addresses. No ifs ands or buts!
What About Cookies?
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide a remembered login to the forums. This remembered login will also remember which threads you've already read, and alert you to new threads and private messages since you last visited the site. No personal information is stored or collected by our cookies!. We recommend you leave cookies on for a better forum experience, but you can always turn them off in your browser settings.
Does CivicX Share the Information It Receives?
Information security about our users is important to us, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We do not share user information with anyone, with the following exceptions:
Protection of CivicX and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law; enforce or apply our Terms and Conditions of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of CivicX, our users, or others. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.
Business Transfers: As we continue to develop this site, we might sell services or business units. In such transactions, user information generally is transferred along with the rest of the service or business unit. Also, in the event that CivicX is acquired, user information will of course be included in the transaction.
Other than as set out above, you will always receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
What About Third-Party Advertisers?
Our site includes third-party advertising and links to other websites. We do not provide any personally identifiable customer information to these advertisers or third-party websites.
How Secure Is Information About Me?
We work to protect the security of your registration information on our servers and encrypt your passwords with the strictest algorithms.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
What Choices and Access Do I Have?
You can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to particapte in the forum discussion.
CivicX is not intended for use by children under the legal driving age in your state or country of residence. If you are under this age, you may not submit information about yourself to CivicX.
Conditions of Use, Notices, and Revisions
If you choose to visit CIvicX, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Notice and our Terms of Services, including limitations on damages, resolution of disputes, and application of the law of the state of New York. If you have any concern about privacy at CivicX, please send us a thorough description via our Contact Us button at the bottom of our forums pages, and we will try to resolve it. Our business changes constantly. This Notice and the Terms of Service will change also, and use of information that we gather now is subject to the Privacy Notice in effect at the time of use. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices and conditions, but you should check our Web site frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Notice applies to all information that we have about you and your account. We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers.
