We may use server log analysis tools to gather and analyze information regarding a Site’s usage, such as the number of visitors received, most/least visited web pages, errors experienced by users, browsers and platforms used to connect to the Site, your IP address and internet service provider (ISP), the date and time you visited the Site, the web pages you visited and the websites you visited before or after you visit the Site. This information may be collected via a number of technologies, including cookies, web beacons, clear GIFs and other means. You can remove certain cookies by following the directions in your Internet browser’s “help” file. If you disable cookies, your ability to use some areas of the Site may be limited. The above information belongs to us and is used to improve the content, layout and/or operation of our Site.
NEWSUP may use the personally identifiable information you provide, separately or in combination with other information you provide, for the following purposes:
If you are visiting this Site from a country outside the United States, you acknowledge and agree that in using this Site, you will transfer personal information about yourself to the United States, that your information will be deemed sent to NEWSUP from the United States of America, that the data protection laws of the United States may not be as comprehensive as those in your own country, and that the transfer of this personal information occurs with your consent and will be treated in accordance with the laws of the United States of America. By providing any personal information to NEWSUP through this Site, all users, including, without limitation, users in the member states of the European Union, fully understand and unambiguously consent to the submission, collection and processing of such information in the United States of America.
We may disclose your personally identifiable and other information to third parties, as follows:
We may disclose aggregate information about users of the Site to service providers, partners, advertisers or others, but such information will not include personally identifiable information.
Except as described above, we do not rent, sell or otherwise provide your personally identifiable information to third parties for marketing purposes, without your consent.
You may “opt-out” of receiving further information about NewsUp and third party products and services (other than information you specifically request) by checking the appropriate boxes on the online and other forms. It may take us ten (10) days to process your request. Even after opting out, you may continue to receive e-mail from third parties to whom your address was provided before you opted out. You will be responsible for contacting these third parties directly, to request that they stop sending you promotional e-mail.
This site is intended for adults. Accordingly, we do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of thirteen.
We follow generally accepted security practices and procedures to protect the personally identifiable information you provide from unauthorized access, use and disclosure, and we require that our authorized service providers implement and maintain such security practices and procedures as well. Nevertheless, Internet transmissions are never completely private or secure. You understand that any messages or information you send to the Site may be read or intercepted by others. If you have any questions about the security of personally identifiable information collected by NewsUp, contact us at the email address provided above.
The personally identifiable information that you provide will be stored and maintained by NewsUp for so long as we, in our sole discretion, believe is necessary or appropriate (a) to carry out the purpose(s) for which such information was collected, or (b) to comply with applicable laws, contracts, or other rules or regulations.
NewsUp reserves the right to deny access to your personally identifiable information: (a) when such denial of access is required by law, (b) when granting you access is reasonably likely to negatively impact other people’s privacy, (c) to protect NewsUp’s rights and property, and (d) when such requests are frivolous or made in bad faith.
