Privacy

THE-BOHEMIAN.COM PRIVACY POLICY

The Bohemian’s policy is to respect and protect the privacy of our users. This policy statement tells you how we collect information from you and how we use it. Using the Internet should be an enriching experience.

The information you provide is shared among The Bohemain sites, as it is our goal to make your visits to our sites easy and enjoyable. However, be assured that The Bohemain will not disclose your personal information to third parties without your consent. The Bohemain may disclose user information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) The Bohemain’s rights or property, other The Bohemain users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. The The Bohemain may disclose user information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it. The Bohemain shares aggregate information about our users with advertisers, business partners sponsors and other third parties. For example, we will say The Bohemain’s audience is x percent females and y percent males. This data is used to customize The-Bohemain.com content and advertising to deliver a better experience for our users.

There are cases where The Bohemain may ask you for personal information such as your name, e-mail address, and birth date. The Bohemain needs to collect this information for tracking/verifying compliance with The Bohemain policies as well as federal, state and local laws and/or for editorial and feedback solicitation purposes.

In case you change your mind or some personal information may change (such as your zip code), we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove the personal data you give us. You can do this at the member information page or by contacting our Customer Support organization at info@The-Bohemain.com

USE OF IP ADDRESSES

An IP address is a number that’s automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re surfing the Web. Web servers — the big computers that “serve up” Web pages — automatically identify your computer by its IP address.

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

Some services within The-Bohemain.com may display IP addresses along with the message poster’s name and message. Please review each service prior to use and only use those that disclose information you are comfortable with sharing.

Cookies make Web-surfing easier for you by saving your preferences while you’re at our site. We never save passwords or credit card information in cookies. The use of cookies is an industry standard — you’ll find them at most major Web sites.

By showing how and when guests 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 users needs.

However, note that some parts of the The-Bohemain.com will not function properly or may be considerably slower if you refuse cookies. You may occasionally get cookies from our advertisers. The Bohemain does not control these cookies. The use of advertising cookies sent by third-party servers is standard in the Internet industry.

LINKS TO OTHER SITES

Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online — for example, via message boards or chat — that information can be collected and used by people you don’t know. While The Bohemain strives to protect its user’s personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk.

The Bohemain’s policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond The Bohemian’s control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation.
