The information Fillster.com gathers are the following two types of information about our website users: Non-personally identifiable information: When visitors come to our website, we collect and aggregate information indicating, among other things, which pages were visited, the order in which they were visited, and which hyperlinks were "clicked." Collecting such information involves the logging of IP addresses, operating system and browser software used by each visitor to the Fillster.com website. Although such information is not personally identifiable, we can determine from the IP address a visitor's Internet Service Provider and the geographic location of their point of connectivity.
The non-personally identifiable information we collect helps us identify the most popular areas of our website and determine the effectiveness of our promotional activities. In addition, we may disclose some of this information to advertisers to inform them of the number of people who have seen and/or clicked through their advertisements.
Personally identifiable information: In certain areas of the Fillster.com website - for example, when registering to become a Fillster.com member - we request, but do not require, that you provide us with personally identifiable information (including, for example, first name, last name, street address, email address, telephone number, and when applicable, credit card information). Fillster.com does not control the acts of its members or visitors. All members and visitors should be aware that, when they disclose personally identifiable information in a forum's board, the information may be collected and used by others to send that person unsolicited email from other parties outside Fillster.com. In the event that you encounter any Fillster.com user who is improperly collecting or using information about you or other users, please Contact us.
Use of collected information:
Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the different ways Fillster.com uses the information that it gathers. Keep in mind that, while Fillster.com encourages all third parties involved - including but not limited to its affiliates and advertisers - to adhere to our policies regarding the privacy of our visitors and members and to otherwise handle personal information in a responsible manner, we cannot and do not assume any responsibility for any actions or omissions of third parties, including the manner in which they use information received either from Fillster.com or independently. Nevertheless, in the event you encounter any third party associated with, or who claims association with Fillster.com who you feel is improperly collecting or using information about you, please Contact us we will be happy to forward your message to the third party.
How we use, or do not use a non-personally identifiable information: We use a non-personally identifiable information in aggregate form to build higher quality, more useful online services by performing statistical analysis of the collective characteristics and behavior of our members and visitors, and by measuring demographics and interests regarding specific areas of the Fillster.com website. We provide statistical information based on this data to advertisers, affiliates, and other current and potential business partners. We also use the aggregate data to inform these third parties as to the number of people who have seen and clicked on links to their web sites.
The Fillster.com website contains links to other Internet websites, including co-branded or other affiliated sites which may or may not be owned or operated by Fillster.com. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites, including such sites' use of any information (such as IP number, browser type, or operating system) collected when visitors to the Fillster.com website click through links to those sites. Even though such information might not identify you personally, we strongly encourage you to become familiar with the privacy practices of those sites.
Fillster.com limits its own e-mail solicitations to those customers who have not "opted out" of receiving such communications. The solicitations are limited in that they, among other things, will clearly indicate the originator of the e-mail and provide the customer with a method of "opting out" of receiving future communications of a similar nature.
In addition, Fillster.com sometimes uses individual data to "target" advertising - to decide which advertisements and sponsor messages to show to which members. As an example, if Sponsor wishes to display their advertising only to female Fillster.com members, Fillster.com uses member registration data to ensure that Sponsor’s ads are displayed only to female members.
Finally, Fillster.com may use individual members' data to "pre-populate" forms, which are displayed for the purpose of collecting individual data by Fillster.com and/or its sponsors. In no case does pre-populating a form automatically transfer any data to any advertiser or third party. Only if the member voluntarily requests that such data be transferred will any transfer take place - for example, if/when a member clicks a "submit form" button or other button.
We reserve the right to release information contained within our access logs concerning any visitor or member when that visitor or member is in violation of our Terms of Service or other published guidelines in any illegal activity, even without a subpoena, warrant, or other court order, and to release such information in response to discovery requests. Fillster.com reserves the right to report any suspected illegal activity to law enforcement for investigation or prosecution.
