Privacy Statement

This Privacy Policy Statement describes how Ariel Atom Chat handles personal information that it receives through this website. Throughout this Statement, “we” and “us” refer to Ariel Atom Chat.

Information Collection and Use

Registration

Registration is not necessary for the public to use this website. However, members must register in order to gain access to the “members only” portion of the website. During registration, you must complete the registration form and create a user name and password. During registration you are required to give us contact information. We use this information to contact you about the services on our forum. Ariel Atom Chat is the sole owner of the information collected on this website.

Controlled Materials

In certain instances, you may only obtain materials or information from this website if you provide contact information and other personally identifiable information. We use this information to identify who is receiving these materials and how they are being used.

Generally

We use the personally identifiable information we receive to provide member services to you by, for example, delivering forum content updates based on your personal preferences, delivering member newsletters to you, creating groups within the forums, and providing you with information about developments and events that we believe will be of interest to our members. You may subscribe or unsubscribe groups at any time in order to control your receipt of group communications. You may not unsubscribe from “all-members” communications as we use this channel of communication to provide information and materials that are necessary for membership. Based upon the personally identifiable information you provide us, we will send you a welcoming email to verify your username and password. We will also communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Aggregate Information (non-personally identifiable)

We may elect to share aggregated demographic information about our user base. This information does not identify individual users. We do not link aggregate user data with personally identifiable information.

Service Providers

We use other third parties to provide certain services, such as the hosting and maintenance of our website, and other services that we may elect to provide to our members. This means that certain information you provide to Ariel Atom Chat in connection with requested services will be delivered and stored on the service providers’ servers. When you sign up for specific services, or as required in connection with website hosting, maintenance and operation, we will share only that personally identifiable information that is necessary for the third party to provide the services. These third parties are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose.

Legal Disclaimer

We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our website.

Log Files

As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information and we do not provide it to third parties.

Cookies and Clear GIFs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs)

A “cookie” is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. A “clear GIF,” also known as a “Web beacon” or “Web bug,” is a transparent graphic image that can be used to monitor a user’s interaction with a website. Our website analytics software, which analyzes traffic to our website and each user’s interaction with our website, uses a combination of log files, cookies and clear GIFs to provide us with analytical information that we use to improve the efficiency of our website in an effort to improve user experience. We do not seek to link this information to personal information about specific users and do not provide this information to third parties. This privacy statement covers the use of cookies by the Ariel Atom Chat website only.

Links to Other Sites

This website contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by Ariel Atom Chat. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies only to information collected by this website. Members of groups have access to mechanisms for posting or distributing messages to other members of their groups. In addition, we may elect to provide bulletin board, chat room or blog functionality on our website from time to time. If you use any of these forums, you should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums.

Access to Personally Identifiable Information

As a member, if your personally identifiable information changes, you may correct or update it by making changes to your member profile or by contacting us by email.

Security

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Changes in this Privacy Statement

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement and other places we deem appropriate so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice on our home page.
