Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.
At VladGh.com, we recognize that privacy of your personal information is important. Here is information on what types of personal information we receive and collect when you use and visit VladGh.com, and how we safeguard your information. We never sell your personal information to third parties.
We keep the following information about you: user name, e-mail address, name, country and personal web site. This information is used in the registration process, and might be available to other users through your profile page or by posting content. Other information may include time zone and signature. We do not store or ask for sensitive information such as, credit/debit card data, address, telephone numbers. We would not disclose anything that could be used to identify you as an individual. Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
For the moment VladGh.com does not use a mailing list, so you will not receive from us any e-mail what so ever, except for the confirmation e-mail during the registration process, and optional comment reply notifications. This might change in the future but not without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
The password used to identify you as a user of VladGh.com is encrypted on the fly, and the that encrypted form is stored in the database,making your real password unknown. That's why we recommend the use of non-dictionary words when choosing it. Also the underlaying infrastructure (the web server and all it's components) has multiple layers of security for most of the attacks used to discover user passwords (such as brute force attacks).
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.
Cookies and Web Beacons
We also use third party advertisements on VladGh.com to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
DoubleClick DART cookies
We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (”interest based targeting”). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about hockey). DART uses “non personally identifiable information”. It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, e-mail address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
