Our primary goal in collecting personally identifiable information is to provide you, the user, with a customized experience on our network of sites. This includes personalization services, interactive communications, online shopping and many other types of services, most of which are completely free to you.
The Feminist Wire uses the personally identifiable information you provide to us in several ways. Some examples follow.
A user’s personally identifiable information may be used by The Feminist Wire for editorial purposes such as to contact you as part of an online survey. Additionally, we may also use the information provided by you to: 1) contact you with legal notices, 2) to advise you of any material changes or additions to our Service or terms and conditions, 3) account status (including confirmation of registrations) or 4) if required .
Finally, we reserve the right to send you offers and information about The Feminist Wire and its affiliates.
Further, if you told us in your account preferences that you would be interested in receiving e-mail from us, we may send you e-mails about The Feminist Wire products, promotions, or services as well as on behalf of other companies. However, if you no longer wish to receive any of the foregoing, you may change your preferences for the future .
In order to provide services free of charge, we display advertisements. The Feminist Wire delivers targeted advertisements on behalf of advertisers. Advertisers give us an advertisement and tell us the type of audience they want to reach (for example, females over 25 years old). We take the advertisement and display it to users meeting that criteria. In this process, the advertiser never has access to individual account information.
The Feminist Wire also does research on our users’ demographics, interests and behavior based on the information you provide to us including upon registration, on order forms, during a promotion, as well as from our server log files or from surveys. We do this to better understand and serve our users. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis and The Feminist Wire may share this aggregated data with advertisers or other businesses. In addition, under confidentiality agreements, The Feminist Wire may match user information with third party data.
When you are on an area of The Feminist Wire and are asked for personally identifiable information, you are providing that information to The Feminist Wire, its affiliates, or vendors providing contractual services for The Feminist Wire (such as hosting vendors and list managers). If personally identifiable information is being provided to and/or maintained by any company other than these, our policy is that we will not transfer that personally identifiable information unless notice is given prior to transfer. If you do not want your information to be shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer by not using that particular service or by expressing this preference, if requested. Additional information about personally identifiable information follows.
Promotions that run on The Feminist Wire may be sponsored by companies other than The Feminist Wire. Some or all personally identifiable information provided by you during a promotion may be shared with the sponsor. If information will be shared, we will disclose such sharing prior to the transfer. You can decide not to participate in the promotion if you don’t want your personally identifiable information to be shared. In certain circumstances, you may not be able to participate in a particular promotion if you chose not to share personally identifiable information. Currently, most The Feminist Wire promotions are limited to U.S. or North American residents.
We do not control the privacy policies of our advertisers, sponsors or other sites or businesses to which we provide hyperlinks or access. Please visit the sites of these businesses to review their privacy policies.
The Feminist Wire users should also be aware that, when you voluntarily disclose personal information in chat areas or bulletin boards, that information may be collected by others and may result in unsolicited messages from others.
We have in place physical, electronic and managerial procedures to protect the information we collect online. However, as effective as these measures are, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the internet.
In order to create and post a Profile, we may ask you to provide information such as: name, email address, geographic location (i.e., city and state), date of birth and other personal or preference information that we may request such as political and religious views, information about your heritage, issues of importance to you, and favorite quotes. Your Profile may also include any other personal or preference information you choose to disclose. The Profile can be viewed by any visitor to The Feminist Wire, though only registered members can attempt to make contact with the person who created the Profile. When you update information for your Profile, we may keep a backup copy of the prior version for a reasonable period of time to enable reversion to the prior version of that information. It is our policy not to create Profiles for any user identified by our system as being under 18 years old.
Please remember that you post content on The Feminist Wire at your own risk. While we may attempt to allow you to set privacy options that limit access to your Profile, we are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on our site. Also, we cannot control the actions of other users with whom you may choose to share your Profile or any other information about you. We cannot and do not guarantee that content you post on The Feminist Wire will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. Finally, please keep in mind that even after removal, copies of any content or information you have submitted to The Feminist Wire may remain viewable in cached and archived pages, or if other users have copied or stored your Profile information.
We invite you to submit your videos, photos, articles, and comments in certain areas of our website.
