TopCentre.com's Privacy Statement
|Did you know that when you go online, sites you visit may be collecting information about you (such as your real name, address, phone number or e-mail address) without your knowledge? At TopCentre.com, we strive to help our visitors and subscribers protect their privacy while using our services.
It is our policy to respect and protect the privacy of everyone who uses our site. This policy statement tells you how we gather information from you and how we use it. The personal information you provide to TopCentre.com is not disclosed to third parties without your consent, except 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) TopCentre.com's rights or property, other TopCentre.com users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. TopCentre.com may disclose user information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
TopCentre.com may share aggregate information about our users with advertisers, business partners, sponsors, and other third parties. For example, we will say TopCentre.com's audience is x percent female and y percent male. This data is used to customize the TopCentre.com content and advertising to deliver a better experience for our users.
There are cases where TopCentre.com may ask you for personal information such as your name, e-mail address, and birth date. For example, we request personal information for online ticket or package purchases. TopCentre.com needs to collect this information for fulfilling prizes, tracking/verifying compliance with TopCentre.com's 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 changes (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 by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Personal information provided to TopCentre.com may be used for marketing and promotional purposes by TopCentre.com and our affiliates or companies that have been prescreened by TopCentre.com. To keep you in control of your personal information and the communications directed to you, we allow you to opt out of the following services: sharing your information in our member directory, receiving communications from TopCentre.com about new features or services, and receiving communications about offers from third-party companies that offer a product or service that we think would be of value to you. If a Guest objects to such use for any reason, he/she may stop that use by e-mailing a request to email@example.com.
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. TopCentre.com 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 TopCentre.com, 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 TopCentre.com, such as certain message boards, 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.
Users should be aware that when they are in the TopCentre.com Web site, they could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from TopCentre.com pages that take you outside our site. For example, if you click on a banner advertisement, the click takes you off the TopCentre.com site. This includes links from advertisers, sponsors, and partners that may use the TopCentre.com logo as part of a co-branding agreement. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, or solicit personal information.
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 TopCentre.com strives to protect their users' personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk. TopCentre.com's policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond TopCentre.com's control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation.
