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.
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.
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.
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 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.
Links to Other Websites
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
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.
