Because we gather information about the visitors and customers of fluentdisc.com, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the collection and use of that information.
fluentdisc.com gathers two types of information about users: 1) Data that users provide through optional, voluntary registration, and 2) aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. Such information enables us to better tailor our content to readers' needs and to better understand the demographics of our audience. THIS DATA CONTAINS NO PERSONALY IDENTIFYING INFORMATION.
fluentdisc.com offers free electronic newsletters to visitors. fluentdisc.com gathers the e-mail addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe. Customers may remove themselves from any mailing list by following the instructions contained in every newsletter. They can also subscribe to the newsletters at the time of registration.
fluentdisc.com occasionally conducts customer surveys to better target our content and product inventory to our audience. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our partners. We never share any information about specific individuals with any third party, except as noted previously.
fluentdisc.com offers contests and sweepstakes in which we request certain personal information. These contests and sweepstakes are conducted in full accordance with Canadian and United States federal and state laws respectively. The full rules and all information about such contests are clearly posted during such events. Information gathered is used only to verify user identity and to contact winners and/or prize recipients, except when specifically noted otherwise. Again, we do not share information about specific individuals with any third party, except as noted previously.
fluentdisc.com tracks user traffic patterns throughout fluentdisc.com and this information is correlated with data about individual users. Overall usage statistics, according to a user's domain name, browser type and MIME type gotten by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser), are also broken down. fluentdisc.com also tracks and catalogs the search terms that customers enter into our search tools, but this tracking is never associated with individual users.
fluentdisc.com uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the sites or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.
As stated above, fluentdisc.com uses information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out electronic newsletters and enable users to participate in polls and message boards. We send out newsletters to subscribers on a regular schedule and occasionally send out special editions when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing. fluentdisc.com never shares newsletter mailing lists with any third parties, including our partners.
We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. fluentdisc.com does 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.
We track search terms entered in our search function as one of many measures of what interests our users. But we don't track which terms a particular user enters.
fluentdisc.com uses the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs and help our partners better understand our audience demographics. We do not share information about individual users with any third party, with the exceptions noted previously.
fluentdisc.com gives users options wherever necessary and practical, such choices include:
Users are never forced to opt-out, but must rather opt-in to participate.
Users may unsubscribe to any of our electronic newsletters at any time by following the instructions contained at the end of each newsletter.
If you feel we are not living up to this policy, have questions or concerns, or ever need to contact us for any reason, please use our Contact Us page.
