Your privacy on the Internet is important to us. As part of the operation of Relatrix, we gather certain types of information about Relatrix users, and we would like to explain the types of information we gather, what we do with it and how to correct or change the information.
Information Collected By Relatrix
Relatrix collects two types of personally identifying information from users: personal information (such as names and e-mail addresses); and aggregated information (such as information about traffic patterns on Relatrix, for example how many users log into Relatrix on a daily basis). Personal information is collected when users provide personal information to Relatrix, for example in registering for electronic newsletters or other membership services, creating a personal portfolio, answering surveys, purchasing items from Relatrix, and registering for contests and other promotional opportunities provided by Relatrix.
Aggregated information, such as which pages users access or visit and information volunteered by users, such as survey information and/or site registrations, is collected through various methods. For example, Relatrix collects IP addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re surfing the Web. Web servers, the computers that “serve up” Web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address, and when you request a page from Relatrix, our servers log your IP address. Relatrix collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to provide aggregated data to advertisers about the volume of use on Relatrix.
Use of Information Collected by Relatrix
Relatrix uses both the personal and aggregated information that we collect for multiple purposes. The information is used to improve the content of the Site, to customize the content and/or layout of the Site for each individual customer and to notify customers about updates to the Site or promotional offers or opportunities that we believe will be of interest to you.
Relatrix does not share personal or aggregated information with third parties for any commercial purposes. Relatrix may disclose personal information, when we believe in good faith that disclosure is legally required, to protect our rights or the safety of others. If you object to Relatrix’ use of personal information provided by you for any reason, you may stop that use by modifying your registration information online.
Social Media and Chat
Please remember that information posted to social media sites and chat areas becomes public information. Use caution when posting. Users under the age of 18 should be especially careful not to provide any personally identifying information while using chat rooms or social media sites. As set forth in Relatrix’ End User Service Agreement, users of chat areas and social media sites must follow acceptable standards of behavior when posting messages through our Service.
Links to Other Sites
It is important to note that Relatrix contains links to sites other than Relatrix, and that those sites may not follow the same privacy policies as Relatrix. For instance, if you click on an advertisement on Relatrix, this will take you away from Relatrix to an entirely different site. This can include links from advertisers, content providers and partners who may use Relatrix’ logo and or style as a result of a co-branding agreement. These sites may send their own cookies to you, and may collect information and make uses of it that Relatrix would not.
