Real BarStars, LLC (“Real BarStars”) operates several websites including RealBarStars.com. It's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Real BarStars collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Real BarStars’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Real BarStars’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Real BarStars may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Real BarStars also may collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on RealBarstars.com forums. Real BarStars only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the page where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Real BarStars’s websites choose to interact with Real BarStars in ways that require Real BarStars to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Real BarStars gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up to provide a username, twitter account name and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Real BarStars – by entering a contest or posting content, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal information required to process those transactions. In each case, Real BarStars collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Real BarStars. Real BarStars does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Real BarStars may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Real BarStars may monitor the most popular posts on the RealBarStars.com site or use spam screened by our spam-screening service to help identify spam. Real BarStars may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Real BarStars does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Real BarStars discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Real BarStars’s behalf or to provide services available at Real BarStars’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Real BarStars’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Real BarStars will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Real BarStars discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Real BarStars believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Real BarStars, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Real BarStars website and have supplied your email address, Real BarStars may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Real BarStars and our content and contests. We may also use our various blogs and pages to communicate this type of information. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it, after removing potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information, in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Real BarStars takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Real BarStars, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Real BarStars goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Real BarStars may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to our anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
