Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. At 4Profit Media, we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

It is 4Profit Media's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating the websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, 4Profit Media collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.

4Profit Media’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use the website. From time to time, 4Profit Media may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

4Profit Media also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs.

4Profit Media only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to 4Profit Media's websites choose to interact with 4Profit Media in ways that require 4Profit Media to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that 4Profit Media gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.

For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive blog updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, 4Profit Media collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with 4Profit Media.

4Profit Media does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

4Profit Media may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, 4Profit Media may monitor the most popular pages on our sites or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam.

4Profit Media may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, 4Profit Media does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

4Profit Media discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on 4Profit Media’s behalf or to provide services available at 4Profit Media’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using 4Profit Media’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. 4Profit Media will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.

Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, 4Profit Media discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when 4Profit Media believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of 4Profit Media, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of a 4Profit Media website and have supplied your email address, 4Profit Media may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with 4Profit Media and our products.

We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.

4Profit Media takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Business Transfers

If 4Profit Media, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that 4Profit Media goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of 4Profit Media may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
