Privacy Statement for AArisings

Thank you for visiting our Web site and for reviewing our privacy policy. AArisings provides you with this privacy statement in order to disclose the information gathering and dissemination practices for this Web site.

We do not collect any personal information about you unless you choose to provide that information to us.

Information Collected and Stored

For each visitor to our Web site, our Web server automatically gathers and stores certain information. This information does not personally identify you. Your email address is not automatically collected. Only the following information is collected and stored automatically:

  1. Your Internet domain and IP address.
  2. The type of browser and operating system you used to access our site.
  3. The date and time of your access to our site.
  4. The pages you view on our Web site.
  5. The address of the Web site from which you reached us, if you come to our Web site from a link on another Web site.

We use this information to make our site more useful to visitors. We use the IP address and domain name to diagnose problems with our server; to keep our Web site running smoothly; to learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology they use; and to improve the content of the site. We do not track or record information about individuals automatically.

Forums

Collection of Data.
The AArisings Forums registration process requires only a valid e-mail address and a unique user ID and password. Providing us with other information is at your option. Please take note that your user name, e-mail address, or other submissions that you make on this site may contain your real name or other personally identifiable information and, as a result, may appear on this site.

Use of Data.
We may use Data to customize and improve your user experience on this site. Your data will never be shared with any other third party or affliate. In the event you choose to use links that appear on our site to visit other web sites, you are advised to read the privacy policies that appear on those sites.

Cookies.
The use of cookies on the AArisings Forums is optional, but may enhance your experience of the site. Cookies are used to enable functions such as showing whether or not a thread or forum you are viewing has new posts since your last visit, or to automatically log you back in when you return to the site after being away for a while.

When you register, you will be given the option to 'Automatically login when you return to the site'. This will store your username and password in a cookie, stored on your computer. If you are using a shared computer, such as in a library, school or internet cafe, or if you have reason to not trust any other users that might use this computer, we do not recommend that you enable this.

AArisings Forums also gives you the option to use a cookie to track your current session, ensuring that you remain logged-on while browsing the site. If you choose not to store this information in a cookie, the session data will be sent through each link you click. Choosing not to use a cookie may cause problems if your computer's connection to the Internet uses a proxy-server and you share links with other users behind the same proxy. If in doubt, we recommend that you select 'yes' to enable the cookie.

After you have registered, you may alter your cookie options at any time by changing the settings on this page.

Children.
We do not allow persons who are ages thirteen or younger to become members of this site.

Editing or Deleting Your Account Information.
We provide you with the ability to edit the information in your user account information that you provided to us in registration by using your user control panel area. You may request deletion of your user account by contacting us. Content or other data that you may have provided to us and that is not contained within your user account, such as posts that may appear within our forums, may continue to remain on our site at our discretion even though your user account is deleted. Please see our Terms of Use for more information.

Changes to this Privacy Policy.
We may make changes to this Policy from time to time. We will notify you of substantial changes to this Policy either by posting a prominent announcement on our site and/or by sending a message to the e-mail address you have provided to us that is contained within your user settings.

NO GUARANTEES.
While this Privacy Policy states our standards for maintenance of Data and we will make efforts to meet them, we are not in a position to guarantee these standards. There may be factors beyond our control that may result in disclosure of data. As a consequence, we disclaim any warranties or representations relating to maintenance or nondisclosure of Data.

If You E-mail Us

If you choose to send us personal information by e-mailing us, normally we use the information to respond to your message and for no other purpose. We do not create individual profiles with the information you provide or give it to any other public or private organization for commercial purposes or otherwise. There is one exception to this policy: if you send us a threat or a message that describes or promotes unlawful activity, we may share it with law enforcement.
