The following privacy policy (hereafter referred to as the “Privacy Policy”) governs how we use and protect any personal information you supply to us via the toutblog.com website. At various points on our website, you may be asked to input personally-identifying information. The user expressly authorizes and consents to our collection, storage, use, and dissemination of personal information as indicated in this Privacy Policy by accepting the policy at the time of registration.

toutblog.com respects its users’ privacy and is committed to protecting the personally identifiable information (any information or data by which you can be identified, such as names, addresses, zip/postal codes, email addresses, telephone numbers, credit or debit card details, etc.) that users share with us in all ways. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice outlining our online information practises and the choices you have regarding how your information is collected and used. We make this notice available on our home page and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested to make it easy to find. We guarantee that we will only use your personal information in ways that are consistent with this Privacy Policy.

In general, you can visit toutblog.com without revealing your identity or any personal information about yourself. We track the internet addresses of the domains from which people visit us and analyse this information for trends and statistics, but the individual user remains anonymous. Please keep in mind that any personal information you voluntarily disclose online, such as via e-mail, discussion lists, forums, blogs, or elsewhere, can be collected and used by others.

toutblog.com is committed to protecting children’s privacy and encourages children to involve their parents in any interactive activity they engage in online. You are not eligible to use this website if you are 16 years old or younger and we collect your age during the registration process. If you are under the age of 16, toutblog.com encourages you to use this website only with the assistance and presence of your parents or legal guardians.

toutblog.com may use the information in its databases, including personal information you have submitted, as well as other server and usage logs, to analyse the site and user behaviour, troubleshoot technical problems, resolve disputes and address complaints, and prepare aggregated reports that are shared with others, including toutblog.com management.

Our website may use “cookies” or similar electronic tools to collect information to assign each visitor a unique random number in order to understand the user’s individual interests using the identified computer in order to improve the responsiveness of the websites for our users. Cookies are small text files that are stored on the hard drive of the user’s computer and are used for record-keeping purposes as well as identifiers, which a website can send to your browser to keep on your computer in order to facilitate your next visit to our website. You can, however, choose whether to accept or reject cookies by changing the settings in your browser. If you refuse to accept these cookies, your experience on our website and other websites may be hampered, and some features may not function properly. Even if we assign a cookie to your computer, we will have no way of knowing who you are unless you voluntarily identify yourself (for example, through registration). The only personal information a cookie can contain is that which you provide. We use the information we collect and analyze to improve our services to you. A cookie cannot read information from your hard drive. Advertisers may also assign their own cookies to your browser (if you click on their advertisements), and we have no control over their use and disclaim any responsibility for the information gathered through them.

We may request personal information from you, such as your name, email address, physical address, and/or telephone number, at times. In general, you will have the option not to provide such information, and you will be able to “opt out” of certain uses of the information in the future. You can still visit toutblog.com if you do not provide the requested information, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers, and services.

When you visit our site, our web servers automatically collect limited information about your computer’s Internet connection, including your IP address (Your IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the internet know where to send you data, such as the web pages you view). Your IP address does not personally identify you. We use this information to deliver our web pages to you when you request them, to tailor our site to our users’ interests, to measure traffic on our site, and to inform advertisers about the geographic locations from which our visitors come.

We use contact information to notify contest winners. We understand, however, that you may wish to participate in these surveys or contests but do not wish to be contacted via email. As a result, whenever you participate in one of our surveys or contests, you will always have the option of declining to receive information from toutblog.com.

We may conduct online surveys or run a contest for promotional purposes from time to time, during which we may ask users for contact information (such as email addresses) and demographic information (like zip code, age, or income level).

There are numerous links to other websites on toutblog.com. For example, when you visit our website, we use third-party advertising companies to serve ads. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites to provide you with advertisements for goods and services that you may be interested in. These third-party websites have their own privacy policies, and toutblog.com is not responsible for their privacy practises or content. Once you leave our servers, the use of any information you provide is governed by the site’s operator’s Privacy Policy. If you are unable to locate a site’s Privacy Policy via a link on its homepage, you should contact the site directly for more information. Although toutblog.com may share aggregate data with such sites, toutblog.com does not share any of the individual personal information you provide with such sites (such as how many people use our site). This includes third-party Internet sites for which toutblog.com provides search services.

All information collected on toutblog.com is securely stored in the (controlled) database of toutblog.com. The database is kept on servers that are protected by a firewall; access to the servers is password-protected and strictly restricted. However, no security system is impenetrable, no matter how effective our security measures are. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that the information you provide will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us via the Internet. Any information you include in a posting to the discussion areas, on the other hand, becomes public information and is accessible to anyone with internet access.

Without the consent of the user or customer, toutblog.com will not sell, rent, share, trade, or disclose to third parties any information derived from registration for or use of any online service offered by toutblog.com, unless such disclosure is required by law or is relevant to judicial or governmental investigations or proceedings, including search warrants, or to assist in the investigation or proceedings, including search warrants, or to assist in investigating, preventing, or taking action regarding unlawful activities, suspected fraud, a potential threat to any person’s security, a violation of our website’s use, or to defend legal claims; special circumstances such as compliance with subpoenas, court orders, requests/orders from legal authorities or agencies requiring such disclosure, or any other legal compulsion; or in the event of imminent bodily harm to the user or others You also agree that toutblog.com may disclose information about you to actual or potential parties in a lawsuit in which toutblog.com is or may become involved (a) if required to do so, (b) if it reasonably believes that such disclosures will potentially mitigate its liability, or (c) to enforce its rights.

Circumstances may also arise in which we are required to disclose your personal information (including our associated customer lists) to third parties for purposes other than supporting your customer relationship with toutblog.com, such as in connection with a corporate divestiture or dissolution, or to its subsidiaries or parent company (if any), or to a potential acquirer or merger partner, in which case we will notify you. Furthermore, as part of a due diligence review, toutblog.com would attempt to limit the disclosure of such information.

Specific uses of personal information that differ from this (if any) Privacy Policy can be found throughout the site. If you are notified of privacy practices that differ from those described in this Privacy Policy while submitting information on the site, those alternative disclosures will govern that submission. A site and service as complex as toutblog.com are never perfect, and as a result, toutblog.com may inadvertently use or disclose your information in ways not contemplated by, or directly contrary to, this Privacy Policy. For example, if the software experiences a temporary glitch, your personal information may be displayed on the site even if you have set your preferences to the contrary. toutblog.com may also make ad hoc uses of your information in ways that cannot be foreseen here. If these types of situations arise, toutblog.com will do its best to work with you, but your only option is for toutblog.com to try to resolve the issue as soon as possible.

If our Privacy Policy changes in the future, it will be posted here, along with a new effective date. It is recommended that you review our Privacy Policy on a regular basis to ensure that you understand our current policies. toutblog.com reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to revise, amend, modify, or change this Privacy Policy at any time and in any manner it deems appropriate.
