Privacy Policy

The RCS Network (“The NETWORK”) respects the privacy of visitors to the internet sites owned and operated by the NETWORK, including but not limited to the site (collectively referred to as the "Website").  This Privacy Policy outlines the information we may collect and how we may use that information. This Privacy Policy will also instruct you on what to do if you do not want your personal information collected or shared.  Please read this web page carefully. If you are not comfortable with the policies and practices it describes, you should not use the Website.  As noted below, we may change this Privacy Policy at any time in our sole discretion.

As used herein, the words “user,” “you” and “your” mean users of the Website and the words “we,” “our,” and “THE NETWORK” means The RCS Network, the owner and operator of the Website.

We will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you provide it to us voluntarily.  When you provide us with personally identifiable information, we may, among other uses: use the information to provide services; store and process the information to better understand your needs and how we can improve our services; use the information to contact you for informational, marketing and promotional purposes; or disclose that information to an affiliated party to deliver e-mail or provide other services on our behalf. The manner in which we will use any personally identifiable information other than those listed in the preceding sentence will be disclosed when you provide the information.  We will, and by your use of our services you expressly authorize us to, use the information you provide in the manner disclosed.

Except as stated in this Privacy Policy, or as otherwise stated at the time personally identifiable information is gathered, we will not provide personally identifiable information to third parties, although certain non-personally identifiable user information may be provided in aggregate form to third parties.

Some of our services or promotions are offered through affiliation relationship with another company, and visitor information may be shared with such affiliated parties.

How You Can Access Or Correct Your Personally Identifiable Information

In the event you provide us with personally identifiable information, you will create an account which will make you a registered user. You can edit, correct or remove any or all of the personally identifiable information you provide us by accessing this account   Remember, however, that removing personally identifiable information may limit your ability to access some or all of the features and services of the Website.  In addition, to keep you in control of your personally identifiable information and the communications directed to you, we allow you to opt-out of receiving communications from us about new Website features or our services.

Effect of Legal Obligations upon this Privacy Policy

The NETWORK may disclose your personally identifiable information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to comply with law; to cooperate with or seek assistance from law enforcement; or to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with the NETWORK's rights or property or that of other Website users or anyone else.  We may also disclose user information when necessary to enforce our Terms of Use.

Collection and Use of Non-Personally Identifiable Information

The NETWORK may also collect information about you that is not personally identifiable. Examples of this type of information may include: 
* the domain name of the Website from which you linked to the Website;
* your domain type (com, .net, .edu, etc.);
* the server your computer is logged into;
* your IP address (a unique number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web; many Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address); and 
* other standard information included with every communication sent on the Internet, such as browser type, operating system, browser language, service provider, and local time.

We can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our terms of use or to protect our service or site.

Use of Cookies

When you view the Website, we may store some information on your computer. This information will be in the form of a "cookie" or similar file and will help us in many ways.  Cookies are small text files placed on your computer's hard drive, so that the NETWORK can recognize you the next time you visit the Website.  For example, cookies are used to allow us to track your movements when you visit the Website to help us determine what type of information to present to you and to tailor the Website to better match your interests and preferences.

The use of cookies is an industry standard employed by most Websites.  With most Internet browsers, you can erase cookies from your computer's hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Please refer to your browser instructions or <Help> screen to learn more about these functions.

Public Forums

The Website may make discussion boards, groups and/or other public forums available to its users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed to these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personally identifiable information.


This Website is not directed at persons under 18 years of age and our content and other services are not written, intended, or designed for persons under 18 years of age. We do not intend to collect any personally identifiable information from such individuals. Where appropriate, the NETWORK will specifically instruct children not to submit such information on the Website. If a child has provided us with personally identifiable information, a parent or guardian of that child should contact us at the mailing address or e-mail address listed at the bottom of this Privacy Policy if he or she would like this information deleted from our records. We will use reasonable efforts to delete the child's information from our existing files.

Links to Other Websites

The Website may allow links to other websites as stated in our Terms of Use.  When you click on such a link, you will leave the Website. The privacy policy of the external
Website will then be in effect, not the NETWORK's.  The NETWORK assumes no responsibility for the information practices of sites you are able to access through the Website. These links to other sites do not imply affiliation or endorsement of a linked site in any way.

Confidentiality and Security

The NETWORK has implemented generally accepted security standards to protect information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. Only employees and registered users of the NETWORK have access to the information we collect, and these employees and registered users are made aware of and required to comply with our Privacy Policy.

Any personal information you give out online – such as in discussion boards or groups -- may be collected and used by people you do not know.  While the NETWORK strives to protect your information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any such information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk.

The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our users and members is of utmost concern to us. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personally identifiable information, the NETWORK cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you agree to transmit such information to us at your own risk. Once we receive your personally identifiable information, we will take reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems.

Who is Collecting Your Information

Your information is being collected solely by the NETWORK. See the discussion below under "With whom your information may be shared" concerning the circumstances under which we may disclose certain of your information to third parties.

With Whom Your Information May Be Shared

The NETWORK does not sell, trade, or rent your personally identifiable information to others. We may disclose information to an affiliated party. In such an instance, your information would not be used in any manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Policy without your prior permission.

Retention of Information

Any information we collect may be retained for an indeterminate period of time.
