Please visit the websites operated by the Network Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance to learn more. Further information in local languages may be available at Your Online Choices.
Links and Personal Information
Our Services contain links to other sites that we do not own or operate. We provide links to these third-party sites as a convenience to our Members. They are not intended as an endorsement of or referral to the linked services. The linked services are subject to their separate and independent privacy statements, notices, and terms, which we recommend you read carefully. The collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information will be subject to the privacy policies of the third party and not this Policy.
We use commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information consistent with industry standards. For example, we use encryption technology, passwords, and physical security measures to help protect your personal information against accidental loss, unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. The security of your personal information is important to us, but please remember that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially reasonable means to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the absolute security of any information you transmit to the Star Network, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission of information, we make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. While we strive to protect your personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of the Star Network, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask that you not share your password with anyone.
Cookies, Web Beacons, and Other Internet Technologies
A cookie is a small file that may be stored on your computer or other device. A cookie enables the entity that put the cookie on your device to recognize it across different websites, services, devices, and browsing sessions.
When you use a web browser to access the Services, some browsers may allow you to configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is sent. Click the “Help” menu of your browser to learn more about how to change your cookie preferences. The operating system of your device may contain additional controls for cookies.
Web beacons and similar technologies are small bits of code, which are embedded in web pages, ads, and e-mail that communicate with third parties. We may use web beacons, for example, to count the number of users who have visited a particular web page, to deliver or communicate with cookies, and to understand usage patterns. We also may include web beacons in e-mails to understand whether messages have been opened, acted on, or forwarded.
There are other local storage and Internet technologies, such as Local Shared Objects (also referred to as “Flash cookies”) and HTML5 local storage, that operate similarly to the cookies discussed above in that they are stored on your device and can be used to store certain information about your activities and preferences across different services and sessions. Please note that these technologies are distinct from cookies, and you may not be able to control them using standard browser tools and settings. For information about disabling or deleting information contained in Flash cookies, please click here.
How We Use These Technologies
Our websites use these technologies for the following general purposes:
· Administering and improving our Services, including helping us measure and research the effectiveness of our content, features, advertisements, and other communications. For example, we measure which pages and features website visitors are accessing and how much time they are spending on our webpages. We may include web beacons in e-mails, for example, to understand whether messages have been opened, acted on, or forwarded.
· Storing your sign-in credentials and preferences so that you don’t have to enter those credentials and preferences every time you log on to a Service.
· Helping us and third parties provide you with relevant content and advertising by collecting information about your use of our Services and other websites.
Accessing, Reviewing, and Updating Your Personal Information
To the extent provided for under applicable law, you may access your personal information and directly update or correct inaccuracies in your personal information.
Your California Privacy Rights
You may opt out of having your personal information shared with third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes by e-mailing us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to the websites and other online services with which a user communicates. There is no industry standard that governs what, if anything, websites should do when they receive these signals. We currently do not take action in response to these signals. If and when a standard is established and accepted, we may revisit our policy on responding to these signals.
California residents who are registered members or users of the Services and are under the age of 18 may be entitled under California law to request and obtain removal of content and information that they themselves post on the Services. You may request such removal by emailing us at: email@example.com. In your request, please provide a description of the material that you want removed and information sufficient to permit us to locate the material, including your name, email address, year of birth, mailing address (including city, state, and zip code) and the subject line “California Removal Request.” Please note that your request does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of the material. For example, materials that you have posted may be republished or reposted by another user or third party.
Collection of Information from Children Under the Age of 13
The Services are not directed to children under the age of 13 and we do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under the age of 13. No one under the age of 13 should use the Services. Persons over 13 but under 18 years of age should ask their parents for permission before using the Services or sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet.
· Parental Control Provisions. We cannot prohibit minors from visiting this Website and must rely on parents and guardians to decide what materials are appropriate for children to view or purchase. Pursuant to 47 U.S.C. § 230(d), as amended, please note that parental control protections (such as computer hardware, software, or filtering services) are commercially available that may assist you in limiting access to material that is harmful to minors. Information identifying current providers of such protections is available at Norton by Symantec (https://family.norton.com/web/), Net Nanny (https://www.netnanny.com/), or by using Google or another search engine to find websites with the search phrase “parental control.”
If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Privacy laws and guidelines are part of a constantly changing environment. We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions of this Policy at any time. We encourage you to review this Policy periodically to ensure that you are aware of our current privacy practices, although we may also elect to notify you by e-mail or by posting something on our online Services. The Policy will always state the effective date. Your continued use of our Services following any changes signifies your acceptance of these changes.
