Default Commitment to your privacy

This site is owned and operated by the P2S Network. Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. We want to make your online experience satisfying and safe.

It should be noted that the only sections of this website that is harvested by search engines is the Welcome section including our Media statement and copyright section; our Disclaimer, Privacy statement and Introductions Forum. All other sections are only available to registered members.

Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.

INFORMATION THIS SITE GATHERS AND TRACKS

The P2S Network gathers two types of information about users:

Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to participate in our message boards or forums, to email a friend, and from participation in polls and surveys. We do not have the capability, nor the wish to view any messages that are sent or received by email or PM (private messaging). We can however see how many PM's a registered user may have stored in their account and can (should the need arise) delete them from the server.

Information the P2S Network 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.

Usage tracking

The P2S Network tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users.

The P2S Network sometimes tracks and catalogs the search terms that users enter in our Search function, but this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.

Cookies

We may place a text file called a "cookie" in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain Personal Information although it will enable us to relate your use of this site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can't read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. The P2S Network uses cookies to track user traffic patterns (as described above).

You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. If you've set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, you will receive the warning message with each cookie. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use this site. However, you do need cookies to participate actively in message boards, forums, polling and surveys.

USE OF INFORMATION
The P2S Network 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.

As stated above, we use information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out electronic newsletters and to enable users to participate in polls, surveys, message boards, and forums. We never share, sell or otherwise pass on your email address.

When we use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
