Privacy Policy

Last Updated: February 22, 2015 (Effective Date)

This Privacy Policy discloses the privacy practices for the www.powerrankingsguru.com and powerrankings.guru websites and all mobile websites and applications associated therewith (the "Site"), which is provided by Power Rankings Guru ("we" or "us" or “our”). This Privacy Policy governs our collection of information from you through your use of this Site. It does not apply to any information you may provide to us through other means; for example, via mail or via telephone. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully so that you understand our online privacy practices. By visiting this Site, you agree that this Privacy Policy governs your visit and/or download or use of a mobile application, and any dispute over our online privacy practices.

TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT

The information we gather falls into two categories: (1) information voluntarily supplied by users to this Site and (2) tracking information gathered as users navigate through this Site.

We may collect and store information, personal or otherwise, that you voluntarily supply either while on this Site or in responding via email in connection with a feature provided on this Site. Some examples of this type of information include demographic information and personal information (such as your name, address, or email address) that you electronically submit when you register for certain features on our Site, vote on this Site, participate in sweepstakes or contests offered on this Site, or sign up for email newsletters, and information that you post on message boards or other public posting areas on our Site. We may also ask for information (including a credit card number) from those who purchase a subscription or conduct other transactions on our Site. The information supplied will help us provide the product or service requested, offer you more personalized features and tailor the Site to your interests. Supplying such information is entirely voluntary. However, if you choose not to supply information requested, we may be unable to provide you with services made available to other users of this Site.

We also may collect and store information that is generated automatically as you navigate through our Site. For example, to help make the Site more responsive to the needs of users, we may employ a standard feature of browser software, called a "cookie," to assign each user a unique, random number that resides on a user's computer. The cookie does not personally identify the user; it merely identifies the computer with which the user accesses this Site. Unless a user voluntarily identifies himself or herself (through registration, for example), this Site will not be able to identify the identity of the user, even if a cookie is assigned to a user's computer. The only personal information a cookie can contain is information supplied by a user. We may also track device identification statistics and other non-identifying information for the purpose of analytics, push notifications, and error reporting. By showing how and when visitors use this Site, cookies help us track user trends and patterns. They also prevent you from having to re-enter your preferences on certain areas of this Site where you have entered preference information before. Of course, you are free to set your web browser not to accept cookies; however, doing so may render your computer unable to take advantage of the personalized features enjoyed by other users of this Site.

USE AND DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION

Power Rankings Guru might use the information that it collects from you while you are using this Site in a variety of ways, including using the information to customize features and advertising that appear on this Site. We might also provide your information to third parties, such as service providers, contractors, and advertisers, for a variety of purposes. For example, we may provide our advertisers with information about you and other visitors that will enable our advertisers to better target ads to specific types of visitors.

You agree that we may use your information to contact you for customer service purposes, to inform you of important changes or additions to our Site or the services offered over our Site, and to send you administrative notices, offers and any other communications that we believe may be of interest to you.

We reserve the right to disclose to third parties all of the information that we collect online about you and other visitors, with one important exception — if you make a purchase on our Site, we will not share your credit card number or other financial information with any third party. We may, however, share non-financial information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Please also keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily make your personal information available for viewing by third parties online — for example on message boards, through email or web logs, or in chat areas — that information can be seen, collected and used by others besides Power Rankings Guru. We cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third party use of such information.

Please be aware that we may occasionally release information about visitors when release is appropriate to comply with law, to enforce our Terms of Use, or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors to our Site, the public, or to us or our Site.

Please also note that as our business grows, we may buy or sell various assets. In the unlikely event that Power Rankings Guru, some or all of our assets, or our Site is acquired by another company, information about our visitors may be among the transferred assets.

THIRD-PARTY SITES

Our Site may include links to third party websites whose privacy policies we do not control. Once you leave this Site, any information that you provide at another site will be governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site you are visiting. The privacy policies of third party websites may differ from that of Power Rankings Guru.

CHILDREN'S PRIVACY

This children's privacy statement explains Power Rankings Guru’s practices with respect to the online collection and use of personal information from children under the age of thirteen, and provides important information on your rights under federal law with respect to such information.

This Site is not directed to children under the age of thirteen and we do NOT knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen. If we become aware that we have inadvertently received personally identifiable information from a user under the age of thirteen, then we will delete such information from our records. Because we do not collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen, we also do NOT knowingly distribute any such information to third parties. We do NOT knowingly allow children under the age of thirteen to publicly post or otherwise distribute personally identifiable contact information.

MODIFYING YOUR INFORMATION AND OPTING OUT

If you register with us, then you will have the opportunity to review, update, change or delete the information you have provided us (and that we continue to store) at any time. If you remove your registration information completely, then you may not be able to continue using certain services that require registration.

STORAGE OF INFORMATION

All information gathered on our Site is stored within a database accessible only to Power Rankings Guru. However, as effective as the reasonable security measures implemented by us may be, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information supplied will not be intercepted while being transmitted over the Internet.

CHANGES TO THIS POLICY

The Internet is an evolving medium. If we need to change this Privacy Policy at some point in the future, then we will post the modified Privacy Policy on this Site and update the Effective Date of the policy to reflect the date of the changes. By continuing to use this Site after we post any such changes, you accept the Privacy Policy as modified.
