Privacy Policy

Our policy is to respect and protect the privacy of our visitors. This policy statement tells you how we collect information from you and how we use it. We believe you should have a safe and fun experience while using our Site.

Personal Information

You do not have to provide personal information to use our site.

We collect personal information only when you provide it to us - for example, to participate in discussion forums, chat rooms, contests, e-mail update lists, to conduct travel or merchandise transactions, or use other services on this site. You are not required to provide us with this information, but if you choose not to, you may not be able to participate in some of the activities on this site.

Contact information is used to respond to your inquiries; to notify you if you have won a contest or a quiz and to send products and services ordered from our sites.

Financial information that is collected is used only to process orders for products and services purchased through our web sites and is never shared with third parties for any other reason.

Whenever we request your personal information on our web sites, we will try to explain to you how we intend to use it and provide you with a choice to decline certain uses. In addition, if we plan to post any of your personal information on our web sites (for example, your name and home town to identify you as the winner of a quiz), we will also notify you of this possibility either when you provide information to us or prior to posting the information.

We may be required to disclose personal information pursuant to valid legal process.

Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online --- for example, via discussion forums or chat --- that information can be collected and used by people you don't know. While we strive to protect your personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk.

Our privacy policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond our control.

Public Discussion and Chats

We make discussion forums and chat areas available to our visitors. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information, and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information.

To register for the public forums, you will need to select a screen name and provide your e-mail address. A password is required to log into the public forums.

Whenever you contribute to a public forum, your screen name will automatically appear with your post and link to your profile. When you log into the discussion forums, you will be able to set up your profile, which you may edit at any time. You have the ability to change your password within the profile. Your password will never be visible to other users as part of your profile. Providing information as part of the profile is entirely optional.

If you have indicated as part of your profile that you would like to accept private messages, other users will be able to communicate with you by sending you "private messages," without actual knowledge of your e-mail address.

CHILDREN'S ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT OF 1998

Our activities on this site are carried out in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998. Under that Act, we may not ask a child to provide more personal information than is reasonably necessary in order to participate in an activity on this site.

We will not collect information from children under the age of 13 without first gaining consent or giving direct notification to a parent or guardian. We will not use this information to contact the child for other purposes, distribute this information to third parties, or give the child the ability to post publicly or otherwise distribute personally identifiable information without a parent's or guardian's consent.

Although visitors under 13 years of age may be allowed to participate in some contests and promotions, if such a visitor wins, notification and prizes are sent to the parent or guardian identified in the initial registration process. Publication of names, ages, or images for contest winners under 13 require parental or guardian consent.

IP ADDRESSES

An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are on the Internet. The IP address number is used to route requests from your computer and web pages to your computer while you are on the Internet.

We collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to our advertisers and partners, and to audit the use of our site. When visitors request pages from our site, our servers log the visitors' IP addresses. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a visitor's session will be logged, but the visitor remains anonymous to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a visitor when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our house rules or to protect our service, site, visitors, or others.

COOKIES

Cookies are data that a web site transfers to an individual's computer for record-keeping purposes. Cookies, which are an industry standard used by most web sites, including ours, can facilitate a user's ongoing access to and use of a site.

By showing how and when visitors use a site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. We use the information from cookies to provide services better tailored to our visitors needs.

If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to decline or accept the cookie feature. You should note, however, that declining the cookies may make it difficult for you to make purchases or use other services on our web sites, and will make entering our discussion forums more cumbersome.

LINKS TO OTHER SITES

Visitors should be aware that when they are on a Dizpins Site, they could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from our pages that take you outside our service. We are not responsible for the privacy of personal information furnished by you to these individuals. Visitors to our site who provide personal information to these other sites are advised to check the privacy policies of those sites. Look for the link on their main pages.

SECURITY

We have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. We may use third parties to host and maintain our web sites.

YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS

By using this site, you signify your consent to the Dizpins Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use our site. Your continued use of our site following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes.
