This is a short, ultra-readable version. The full legal mumbo jumbo is below.
We care about your privacy. We use the typical site traffic analysis tools, but we'll only use your info to contact you or when the law tells us we have to. The stuff you post publicly in your content, though, is not under our control.
We use clearly marked cookies. You can block them, but it may affect some site features.
We don't guarantee the links on our site will lead to sites that also care about your privacy.
Users can set their notification preferences on their user page. All emails we send have instructions on how to unsubscribe.
We have decent site security, but it's not unassailable. In the event of a (very unlikely) breach, we'll let you know.
Don't use the site without parental permission if you're under 13.
And, last of all, we can't warranty/guarantee any of this. Sorry.
OmniNerd is committed to protecting its users' privacy while giving the user as much control as possible over their personal information, including registration data. This Privacy Statement describes the information we collect about the user and how that information may be used.
OmniNerd will track the domains from which people visit OmniNerd sites in order to gain aggregate data that may be analyzed for trends and statistics.
OmniNerd employs "cookies" to allow the persistent login feature. A "cookie" is an element of data that a website, when visited by a user, sends to that user's browser which, in turn, may store that element on the user's hard drive or memory. Any cookies sent by OmniNerd will be marked so that they will be accessible only by OmniNerd Sites subject to this Privacy Statement. However, at his or her option and at his or her sole expense and responsibility, any user may block or delete our cookies from his or her hard drive. However, by disabling cookies, certain site features and functionality may no longer work properly, or at all.
In order to implement or enforce the Terms, OmniNerd may use user-provided e-mail addresses to contact users on an individual basis. At no time, unless such disclosure is required by law, a governmental agency, or specifically authorized by the user, will OmniNerd disclose individual user personal information to unrelated third parties that is not publicly available.
Users may "opt-in" to receive site notifications, newsletters, or other information via email. Users may remove themselves from such services at their discretion. Any email sent to an "opt-in" list will include directions for how a user may remove himself or herself from the list or a URL where the user may find such directions.
Some users' personal information may be publicly available through a user's profile display. In cases where site profiles allow users to display optional information publicly, such entry and display is at the user's discretion and may be changed at any time by the user.
Users can view their data on their personal profile page. When technically feasible, users are permitted to update their personal information directly through OmniNerd. When such updating service is not technically feasible, OmniNerd will make reasonable efforts to assist users in updating their personal information.
To secure site integrity, OmniNerd employs reasonable security measures and procedures. Internal access to users' private and nonpublic personal information is restricted to site administrators and individuals on a need-to-know basis.
In the event that OmniNerd becomes aware that site security is compromised or nonpublic user information has been disclosed to unrelated third parties as a result of external activity, including but not limited to external security attacks, OmniNerd shall take reasonable measures which it deems appropriate, including but not limited to internal investigation and reporting, and notification to and cooperation with law enforcement authorities, notwithstanding other provisions of this Privacy Statement.
If OmniNerd becomes aware that a user's personal information provided to OmniNerd has been disclosed in a manner not in accordance with this Privacy Statement, OmniNerd shall make reasonable efforts to notify the affected user, as soon as reasonably possible and as permitted by law, of what information has been disclosed, to the extent that OmniNerd knows this information.
OmniNerd is not for use by those under 13 years of age without the consent of their parent or guardian. Children under 13 who wish to register are asked to have a parent or legal guardian do so for them. OmniNerd is not responsible for use of OmniNerd.com by users under 13 without obtaining the proper permission from their parent or guardian.
While this Privacy Statement expresses OmniNerd's standards for maintenance of private data, it is not in a position to guarantee that the standards will always be met. There may be factors beyond OmniNerd's control that may result in a disclosure of data. As a consequence, OmniNerd disclaims any warranties or representations relating to maintenance or nondisclosure of private information.
