Our Privacy Policy

We respect and are committed to protecting your privacy. That is why we have adopted this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy lets you know how your personal information is processed and used. We promise that we will take steps to use your personal information only in ways that are compatible with this Privacy Policy. The following policies are only in effect for the Web pages, newsletters, discussion lists and opt-in announcement lists owned and operated by Avenueblue, (AB). (The AB Network includes all Web sites and certain other Internet media properties hyper linked from the AB home pages & domains.)

The following discloses our Privacy Policy.

What information are you collecting and how are you collecting it?
Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers, that serve as that computer's "Internet Protocol" IP address. When a visitor requests a page from any Web site within the AB Network, our Web servers automatically recognize that visitor's domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, and to investigate misuse of the AB Network, its users, or to cooperate with law enforcement.

What are cookies?
From time to time, AB or its advertisers may send a "cookie" to your computer. A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your Internet browser from a Web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. A cookie can't read data off of your computer hard disk or read cookie files created by other Web sites. Cookies do not damage your system. We use cookies to identify which areas of (AB)'s Network you have visited or customized, so the next time you visit, those pages may be readily accessible. Our advertisers may also use cookies to ascertain how many times you've seen an advertisement. Our advertisers and we may use this information to better personalize the content, banners, and promotions that you see on our site. You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings of your Internet browser. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies, or allow your browser to show you when a cookie is being sent. If you choose not to accept these cookies, your experience at our Site and other Web sites may be diminished and some features may not work as intended.

What information do you collect when I register for something?
We offer access to some services that require registration. We may use your registration contact information to send notification to you of (AB) products and services by e-mail. We do NOT share that information with outside parties.

What other information do you request?
We may from time to time send e-mail announcing new (AB) products and services. Except as stated above, (AB) will not send you e-mail that you have not agreed to receive. If you choose to supply your postal address in an online form, you won't be sent postal mailings.

When you sign up for an (AB) discussion forum, your name or alias is recorded solely for purposes of maintaining your own account within the forums. This information is not used to monitor your activity within a forum, nor is it used to identify you outside the (AB) network.

Will you disclose the information you collect to outside third parties?

We will disclose personal information and/or an IP address, when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:
1) Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities and conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on us,
2) Protect and defend the rights or property of the Avenueblue Network of sites and related properties, or visitors to the (AB) Network of sites and related properties,
3) Identify persons who may be violating the law, the (AB) legal notice and Web site User Agreement, the rights of third parties, or otherwise misusing the (AB) Network or its related properties,
4) Fulfill a user's order or request.

We use very reasonable precautions to keep the information disclosed to us secure. We reserve the right to transfer all such information in connection with the sale of all or part of our capital stock or assets. Furthermore, we are not responsible for any breach of security or for any actions of any third parties that receive the information. We are not responsible for such third party privacy policies or how they treat information about their users.

Your Consent To This Agreement
By using the Avenueblue Network, you consent to the collection and use of information by Avenueblue as specified above. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.
