No Collection of Personal Data from Children under 13.
We recognize the need to provide additional privacy protections for the Personal Data of children under 13. The Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Act (“COPPA”) requires general audience website operators to obtain a parent’s prior consent if they are knowingly collecting, using or disclosing any Personal Data from a child under 13. National Report is not directed to or intended to be used by children under 13 (or under 18 for that matter), and National Report does not knowingly collect, use or disclose any Personal Data from children under 13. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us.
Personal Data Collected.
The only Personal Data National Report currently collects is the Personal Data that you voluntarily provide to National Report. For example, all users must enter first name, last name and email address prior to submitting comments to the site. Users of the social networking features on National Report may also enter Personal Data to create a social networking page and user profile. The information on the social networking page and the user profile, including any Personal Data, will also be available to other users of National Report.
Other data that does not qualify as Personal Data because it cannot be used to contact or identify you (“Non-Personal Data”) may also be collected when a user participates in certain features of the National Report, or may be automatically collected about you.
For example, National Report uses technology to automatically collect Non-Personal Data about the use of the National Report website. This technology is used to track things like how many users access the National Report, the date and time of their visits, the length of their stays, and which pages they view. National Report may also use technology to determine which web browsers users use and the address from which they accessed the Websites. The information collected using this technology does not identify any user personally and is thus all Non-Personal Data that simply enables National Report to compile statistics about users and their use of the Websites.
National Report uses this Non-Personal Data and may share it with third parties to improve the content and functionality of the National Report websites, to better understand our customers and markets, and to improve our products and services. We may also use this information to provide you with targeted advertising, so that the advertisements you may see on National Report are of more interest to you.
We may store certain information from your web browser using “cookies.” A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s computer tied to information about the user. We may use session-ID cookies to confirm that users are logged in. These cookies would terminate once the user closes the web browser. We may also use persistent cookies that store certain Personal Data you already provided to us to make it easier for you to create comments at National Report. Cookies are used as a convenience feature for the user. You can remove or block cookies using the settings in your browser if you want to disable them.
Use of Personal Data Collected.
National Report uses the Personal Data collected on the Websites to provide you with the requested Services. If you enter Personal Data to create a member account, for example, that Personal Data will be used to create your account and allow that user to access certain features of National Report. If you enter Personal Data to create a social networking page and user profile, that Personal Data will be available to other users of National Report on your social networking page.
National Report may also use the Personal Data to contact you for a variety of reasons, such as but not limited to notifying you about upcoming events, offering you additional products or services, or requesting your feedback on National Report website. If you wish to opt-out of these contacts, you can let us know by following the “unsubscribe” instructions that accompanied the contact email, or by contacting us at email@example.com. Even if you opt-out of certain contacts, National Report may still contact you about any problems or issues with your personal account, social networking page or user profile.
Disclosure of Personal Data Collected.
National Report may disclose Personal Data to third parties when (a) it is reasonably necessary to provide you with the Services, (b) you have authorized the disclosure, or (c) if required or authorized to do so by law.
For example, when you choose to use the social networking features of National Report, it is necessary for National Report to disclose the information on your social networking page and your user profile information, including Personal Data, to other users of the website. Without disclosure of this information, no one could contact you and there would be no social networking feature. Any User Content (as defined in the Terms of Service) you post to National Report website will also be available to other users. By participating in the social networking features, you are also giving National Report permission to include you in its RSS feed features, which allow other users to get updates on your social networking page and user profile. For example, if you add your favorite movie or restaurant to your user profile, users who are subscribed to your RSS feed will be notified of this change in your user profile. This feature will also allow other users to see how you are using the Websites. You use the social networking features and post User Content at your own risk. National Report is not responsible for security or privacy breaches that may result from your use of the social networking features or posting User Content to the website.
National Report may also disclose Personal Data to third parties if a user has requested that National Report do so. The National Report website may offer users opportunities to request disclosure of Personal Data to third parties. For example, users may have the ability to request through the National Report that certain third parties send them information. In that case, National Report would disclose the user’s full name and email address or mailing address so that the third party can send the user the requested information.
National Report uses industry standard security measures to protect your Personal Data. While such security measures provide reasonable protections against unauthorized access, they provide no guarantee that your Personal Data will not be compromised.
