Our information sharing practices
(b) Service Providers. From time to time, we may enter into relationships with third parties who provide services to us (e.g., data management and storage services or credit card processing services). In those circumstances, we disclose User Information that is necessary for such service providers to perform those services and require that they maintain the confidentiality of such User Information.
If you identify any User Information as public, you are authorizing us to share such information publicly. For example, you may elect to make certain Shared Information (such as your alias, bio, email or photos) publicly available. Also, there may be areas of Pinside (e.g., message boards, discussion rooms, and other online forums) in which you are able to post information that will be available to all other users of Pinside. By choosing to use these areas, you understand and agree that anyone may access, use, and disclose any information that you post to those areas.
PM (PinsideMail) privacy
PinsideMail messages are private and cannot be accessed by any Pinside staff members, including the moderators. However, if there’s a strong suspicion of a member (or members) utilizing the PinsideMail system for unlawful, harassing, abusive, threatening, harmful, or otherwise objectionable messages, or in a way that breaks Pinside's TOS, the Webmaster has the ability to access any member’s account and PinsideMail messages. If necessary, the Webmaster can forward the content of any inspected PinsideMail messages to the proper authorities.
We also may allow certain analytic services and providers of applications used on Pinside (e.g., sharing buttons) to collect Non-Personally Identifiable information by placing cookies on Pinside that will track certain performance of our Services, such as, web traffic, click-throughs, etc., in order to assist us and our service providers in better understanding the interests of our users and to better serve those interests.
We have implemented reasonable measures to help protect your User Information from loss, misuse, or unauthorized access or disclosure. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your User Information, we cannot guarantee its security.
Pinside may contain links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of any such other website and urge you to review such practices prior to submitting any information to such websites.
