How We Collect And Use Your Information
ERE Media uses information we collect to analyze how the Site is being used, diagnose service or technical problems, maintain security, personalize and improve content, remember information to help you efficiently access your account, monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and demographic patterns, and track user content and users as necessary to comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and other applicable laws.
User-Provided Information: When you register for an account on the Site you will be authorizing ERE Media to access and to use your publicly available contact information which you have stored in your own Linkedin account. The contact information will include, among other things, your name and email address. We may use your email address to send you service-related notices (including any notices required by law, if permitted to be made in lieu of communication by postal mail). You may be able to control receipt of certain service-related messages on your Settings page. We may also use your contact information to send you marketing email messages. If you do not want to receive such messages, you may opt out by following the instructions in the message. If you correspond with us by email, we may retain the content of your email messages, your email address and our responses.
If you use your LinkedIn or other social networking site ("SNS") account information to sign in to the Site, we will collect and store your SNS user ID.
You will also be providing us with information in the nature of user content when you post to the Site. Your questions, answers, and other contributions on the Site, and metadata about them (such as when you posted them), are publicly viewable on the Site, along with your name. This information may be searched by search engines and may be republished elsewhere on the Web in accordance with our Terms of Service.
Information Collected Automatically: We use tracking technologies such as persistent and session cookies to: (a) store your username and password; (b) analyze your usage of the Service; (c) customize the Service to your preferences; and (d) control the advertising displayed by the Service. A persistent cookie remains on your computer after you close your browser so that it can be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Service. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser's directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features of the Service may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.
We may also use other Internet technologies, log files, clear GIFs, Flash technologies, and other similar technologies, to deliver or communicate with cookies and track your use of the Service. We also may include clear GIFs in HTML-based emails sent to our users to determine whether the message has been opened. As we adopt additional technology, we may also gather additional information through other methods.
We use these automated technologies for the limited purpose of collecting and analyzing certain types of information we consider to be non-personal information, including: (a) information related to the devices you use to access or interact with the Service, such as: IP addresses, geolocation information, unique device identifiers and other information about your mobile phone or other mobile device(s), browser types, browser language; and (b) information related to the ways in which you interact with the Service, such as: referring and exit pages and URLs, platform type, the number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time you used the Service, and other similar information. We may also capture other data, such as search criteria and results.
We may collect, for our own use but not for redistribution, different types of information about your location, including general information, such as your IP address and zip code, and more specific information, such as GPS-based functionality on mobile devices used to access the Service, and may use that information to customize the Service with location-based information and features. If you access the Service through a mobile device and you do not want your device to provide us with location-tracking information, you can disable the GPS or other location-tracking functions on your device, provided your device allows you to do this.
How We Share Your Information
ERE Media may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or subpoena or if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request, to protect the safety of any person, to address fraud, security or technical issues, or to protect ERE Media's rights or property.
How We Protect Your Information
ERE Media uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to ERE Media or guarantee that your information on the Service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
Your Choices About Your Information
ERE Media requires that all users use their real names and information on the Site to prevent spam and, most important, to promote accountability and responsibility. You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information, but without your initial authorization to us to access your LinkedIn information you will not be able to access Site or use the Service. You may update or correct your account information and email preferences at any time by logging in to your account.
Protecting the privacy of children is especially important. ERE Media does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register with the Service. If we become aware that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information.
Links To Other Web Sites
Our Site may contain links to other web sites that may be subject to less stringent privacy standards. ERE Media cannot assume any responsibility for the privacy practices, policies or actions of the third parties that operate these websites. We are not responsible for how such third parties collect, use or disclose your personal information. You should review the privacy policies of these web sites before providing them with personal information.
Your California Privacy Rights
California law permits users who are California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom we have disclosed their "Personal Information" (as defined in California Civil Code 1798.83) for direct marketing purposes in the prior calendar year, as well as the types of Personal Information disclosed to those parties. If you are a California resident and would like to request this information, please submit your request in an email to email@example.com. Additionally, residents of other states may have specific rights regarding their personally identifiable information, and ERE Media will comply with all laws regarding those rights.
