Privacy Policy

ActiveRain Privacy Policy

The following policy describes the privacy practices of ActiveRain Corp. ("ActiveRain" or "we"). You should read this policy in order to understand how we treat the information you provide to us as you use any website operated by ActiveRain (the "Sites") or any products or services provided by ActiveRain (the "Services").

Personal Information

If you do not have an account with ActiveRain, you still can access the Sites to read blogs and comments, review profiles and advertisements and view pictures and videos. You also can contact us about a particular blog or comment, advertisement or other content without having an account.

Certain activities on the Sites, such as creating a blog, posting comments or uploading pictures and videos, require you to have an account with ActiveRain. When you create an account, we ask for some personal information, such as your email address and password, which protects your account from unauthorized access.

ActiveRain may record information about your use of the Sites and Services, such as when and how often you use the Sites and Services, what Sites and Services you use and what groups you belong to within the ActiveRain community. If you are logged in, we may associate that information with your account. We may use clear GIFs or web beacons in HTML-based emails sent to you to track the emails that are opened by recipients.

Any personal or commercial information, photos, images or video content that you voluntarily disclose through the Sites will become publicly available and can be accessed and viewed by others.

Uses

If you submit personally identifiable information to us through the Sites, we may use your personal information to operate, maintain and provide you with the general and personalized features and functionality of the Sites.

Your account name and other identifying information is viewable by all users of the Sites when you create a blog or profile, post comments or otherwise use the Sites. All users of the Sites will be able to contact you through your blogs, profile and comments. Any information that you include in your blogs, profile or comments may be redistributed through the Internet and other media channels and may be viewed by the general public.

ActiveRain does not use your email address or other personally identifiable information to send commercial or marketing messages to you without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-out. ActiveRain may use your email address without further consent for administrative purposes, such as notifying you of changes to the Sites or for customer service purposes.

ActiveRain uses your personally identifiable information and certain non-personally-identifiable information, such as anonymous cookies, IP address and browser type, to improve the quality and design of the Sites; to create new features, functionality and services by storing and analyzing user preferences and trends; and to further our efforts to police the Sites and enforce the Terms of Use and Community Guidelines.

ActiveRain may use cookies, clear GIFs and log file information to (a) store information so that you will not have to continuously re-enter it at the Sites; (b) provide personalized content and information; (c) monitor our marketing campaigns; (d) monitor statistics relating to the Sites; (e) track your submissions and status in promotions; and (f) police the Sites and enforce the Terms of Use and Community Guidelines.

Information That is Publicly Available

When you create an account on the Sites, some information about your account and your account activity will be provided to viewers of the Sites. This may include the date you opened your account, the date you last logged into your account, your name and business affiliation and your contact information. Some information about your account is displayed to other viewers and users of the Sites when you engage in activities on the Sites, such as blogging and commenting. Other users and viewers may contact you through your use of the Sites.

You may add personal information to your account that will be visible to other viewers and users of the Sites. For example, your profile page may include your name, business affiliation, picture and contact information.

Any blog, comment, picture, video or other information that you submit to the Sites may be redistributed through the Internet and other media channels and may be viewed by the public.

Choices

You may decline to submit personally identifiable information through the Sites, in which case you still can view the Sites, but you may not be able to participate in certain services offered by ActiveRain.

You may update or correct your personal profile information and preferences by visiting your ActiveRain account profile page.

Third-party Advertisers, Links to Other Sites

ActiveRain allows third-party advertisers to advertise within the ActiveRain community. These advertisers may use technology to send, directly to your browser, the advertisements and links that appear on the Sites. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens, and they may use other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript or web beacons) to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalize the advertising content you see.

ActiveRain does not provide any personally identifiable information to these third-party advertisers without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. The third-party advertiser also may use information regarding your use of the Sites, such as the number of times you viewed an ad (but not any personally identifiable information), to determine which ads to deliver to you.

You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party advertisers for more information on their practices and for instructions on how to opt-out of certain practices. ActiveRain's privacy policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, such other advertisers or websites. Any data obtained by third-party advertisers that is subsequently shared with ActiveRain is maintained and dealt with by ActiveRain consistent with this privacy policy.
