Information This Site Gathers And Tracks
JPiC FORUM FOR WRITERS gathers two types of information about users:
Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to receive our electronic newsletters, to participate in our message boards or forums, to email a friend, and from participation in polls and surveys.
Information JPiC FORUM FOR WRITERS gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers' needs and to help our advertisers and sponsors better understand the demographics of our audience. Because JPiC FORUM FOR WRITERS derives its revenue mainly from sponsorships, advertisement and/or donations, providing such aggregated demographic data is essential to keeping our service free to users. Under no circumstances does JPiC FORUM FOR WRITERS divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.
JPiC FORUM FOR WRITERS Gathers User Information In The Following Processes:
Optional Voluntary Information
We offer the following free services, which require some type of voluntary submission of personal information by users:
- Electronic newsletters (Dispatches)
We will offer a free electronic newsletter to users. JPiC FORUM FOR WRITERS gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe.
- Message boards/forums
Users of the site's Message Boards and Forums must register separately for these services (both are free of charge) in order to post messages, although they needn't register to visit the site. During registration the user is required to supply a username, password, and email address.
- "E-mail this to a friend" Service
Our site users can choose to electronically forward a link, page, or documents to someone else by clicking "e-mail this to a friend". The user must provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient. This information is used only in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent the email. The information is not used for any other purpose.
JPiC FORUM FOR WRITERS tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. JPiC FORUM FOR WRITERS does break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).
Use of Information
JPiC FORUM FOR WRITERS uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience in our network of sites, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the sites or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.
