At e-BlackWomenNetwork.com, we are committed to creating a safe and inviting environment where women can nurture, grow, mentor, and support each other's needs, aspirations, and dreams. By completing your profile, you will be given the opportunity to select that information you want posted on e-BlackWomenNetwork.com. All information that you choose NOT to post on e-BlackWomenNetwork.com will be used for our internal use only. Your personal information, and the information of all e-BlackWomenNetwork.com members, is used by us to ensure that we are providing you with the most relevant content, information, and mentoring opportunities. Please read the following privacy statement carefully.
Questions regarding this statement should be directed to the e-BlackWomenNetwork.com site administrator by sending an email to: email@example.com and writing "Privacy Statement" in the subject line.
How We Collect Information
Many of the ways in which you interact with our site allow us to learn more about you. We collect and store statistics and other information about the online activities of our visitors on an aggregated (collective) basis. For example, we track the number of people who view each page to learn which features are the most popular. But in these, and almost all other instances, we do not obtain personally identifiable information about you.
In those instances where we do collect personally identifiable information, you have the option of choosing to reveal it to us or to one of our vendors on e-BlackWomenNetwork.com. In the event of a complaint, we may also receive personally identifiable information about you from other parties on e-BlackWomenNetwork.com or from other users or third parties who may communicate information to us about you in relation to that complaint.
How We Use and Disclose Your Information
As a general practice, we do not sell your personally identifiable information to third parties. So, for example, we do not sell your email addresses or your name and personal demographic information to mass marketers. However, on particular pages where we ask for your personally identifiable information, we may explicitly tell you that the data we are collecting on that page will be shared with third parties, in which case those disclosures shall override anything to the contrary in this policy. For example, before you submit answers to questions we ask in an advertiser-sponsored promotion, we will tell you that your answers will be shared with that advertiser.
We use your information on an aggregated basis to do such things as operate our site, enhance our site and sell and deliver advertising. We also use this data, both aggregated and personally identifiable, to enhance your on-site experience by displaying content and marketing messages that we believe will be of interest to you. We disclose aggregated information about our site to third parties.
Note that some online activities you choose to do necessarily lead to disclosure of your personally identifiable information to third parties, such as when you include your name and email address in a postcard or when you order merchandise in the Store. In these cases, again, your choice to disclose personally identifiable information is voluntary.
In some cases, we use your personally identifiable information to provide information to you, such as to send site updates and event information to you that you request or to personalize the site in accordance with your requests.
Use of Your Photo Image and Name
As part of our ongoing marketing and promotion activities we photograph our members while at many of our events. By becoming a member of e-BlackWomenNetwork you are agreeing to give us permission to publish any photos taken of you during any e-BlackWomenNetwork events. These photos may be used for promotional uses for e-BlackWomenNetwork only. These photos may or may not include your name, and they will not be sold to third parties.
Controlling or Changing Your eProfile
You can access and update your personal information anytime.
Privacy of Children
e-BlackWomenNetwork.com understands that children and young adults need special safeguards and privacy protection. These young people may not understand all the provisions of our policy or be able to make well-informed decisions about the choices available to our adult users. We believe our success is not only defined by our ability to bring you online services that make your life more convenient and enjoyable, but also by the steps we take to ensure that the interactive medium is available to everyone and guided by policies that make sense for families. In concert with our efforts, e-BlackWomenNetwork.com urges all parents to supervise their children's exploration of the Internet and any online services, and to teach their children about protecting their personal information while online.
Cookies and Other Tracking Methods
Note: e-BlackWomenNetwork.com places advertising on our sites that originates from outside advertisers and/or advertising agencies. In some cases, if you click on or view these ads, a cookie may be assigned by the advertiser.
Please note that if you provide any information on your own or directly to parties who provide service to the Network, or any other sites you encounter on the Internet (even if these sites are branded with our branding), different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the personal information you disclose to them. We encourage you to investigate and ask questions before disclosing information to third parties.
Limits on Our Abilities
Although your privacy is very important to us, due to the existing legal regulatory and security environment, we cannot fully ensure that your private communications and other personally identifiable information will not be disclosed to third parties. The government or third parties under certain circumstances may intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Additionally, in the unlikely event we need to investigate or resolve possible problems or inquiries, we can (and you authorize us to do so) disclose any information about you to private entities, law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate.
We use industry-standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifiable information, such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layers where appropriate. However, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet.
We hope this policy clarifies our procedures regarding your personal information.
