The following privacy statement discloses our information-gathering and dissemination practices for this Web site, CriminalWatch.com. CriminalWatch.com reserves the right to periodically review its privacy policies and modify or clarify such policies in any way it deems appropriate and consistent with the general guidelines set forth in this statement.
At no time without the express consent of the user, will we share or disseminate the user's IP address or other information that may be "personally identifiable." For the purposes of this privacy statement, we regard information as "personally identifiable" if the information, individually or in the aggregate, discloses the identity of the user, such as the user's name, phone number, address or e-mail address.
We do, however, use personally identifiable confirmation for internal administration purposes. For example, we use the user's IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer and optimize our Web site.
Our site's registration form and, on occasion, online surveys we conduct ask users to provide us with certain information, some of which may be personally identifiable. We use user contact information (e.g. name, address, e-mail address) to send the user information about our company and to tailor the user's experience at our site, showing them content that we think they might be interested in and displaying the content according to their preferences. The user's contact information also is used to enable us to contact the user when necessary.
Demographic and profile data, such as age, affiliations, hobbies or income level, also may be collected at our site, with proper and prior notification. While you are not required to provide us this information, we may not be able to provide you with the full benefits of our Web site experience without it. Information collected by us from our users by means of our on-line registration form or occasional surveys are aggregated and shared with our advertisers and other interested third parties, but only on a non-personally identifiable and aggregate basis. We do not provide our advertisers with any means to identify or contact a user individually, unless a user specifically asks that we do so.
We may run contests or other promotional activities on our site in which we ask participants other than registered users for contact information (like their e-mail address). We use contact data from our contests to send participants other than registered users information about our company. The contact information is also used to contact the participants when necessary in accordance with the rules set forth in connection with such contests or promotions.
If we reasonably believe that an individual's safety or security is at risk or that our property is at risk, we will disclose this information to the proper law enforcement agencies. Additionally, although unlikely, we may be required by law to provide certain information regarding our users, including personally identifiable information, to appropriate governmental authorities. If this is the case, we will provide such information only upon our receipt of appropriate documentation evidencing such requirement.
This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. We operate secure data networks employing industry-standard firewall and password-protection systems and permit access to our data only to authorized individuals.
