Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. The information we collect is not sold, lent, rented, or otherwise shared with other organizations for any purpose. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.
What kinds of voluntary information do you gather?
Our site contains links to send email to various people at Synergics. Using this link to send email to Synergics will result in sending your configured email address and any content entered or attached with your email to the selected recipient at Synergics.
Our site and email communications may contain links to subscribe, or opt in, and receive special information and publications. For example, we may sponsor an email newsletter, and you may subscribe to this email and other communications from Synergics. Any communication we send will contain an option to opt out of future communications.
Synergics may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our sponsors, advertisers, and partners. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.
What other types of information do you gather?
Information Synergics gathers through aggregated tracking information is derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers' needs. Under no circumstances does Synergics divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.
Synergics tracks user traffic patterns throughout our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. Synergics does break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).
Synergics sometimes tracks and catalogs the search terms users enter in our Search function, but this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
What are "cookies" and how do you use them?
I'd rather not be cookied. Can I turn them off?
What is your policy on underage users?
Consistent with the Federal Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.
What if I need to contact you?
If you wish to correct any inaccuracies in our record of your contact information, or if you do not want to receive email from us in the future, please let us know by using the "unsubscribe" option on our communications to send us an email. Or, if you feel that this site is not following its stated information policy, please contact us.
