The Social Nerds, LLC (“Marketing”) operates several websites including thesocialnerds.com. It is The Social Nerds's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, The Social Nerds 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. The Social Nerds's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The Social Nerds's visitors use its website. From time to time, The Social Nerds may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
The Social Nerds also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blog or submitting a form. The Social Nerds 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 blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to The Social Nerds's websites choose to interact with The Social Nerds in ways that require The Social Nerds to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Social Nerds gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who want to leave a comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who inquire to engage in business with Scribe—by requesting to be contacted by a The Social Nerds representative, for example—are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal information required to process those transactions. In each case, The Social Nerds collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Marketing. The Social Nerds 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.
The Social Nerds may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, The Social Nerds may monitor the most popular blogs on the The Social Nerds site or use spam screened by Automattic’s Akismet service to help identify spam. The Social Nerds may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, The Social Nerds does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
The Social Nerds 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 The Social Nerds's behalf or to provide services available at The Social Nerds'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 The Social Nerds's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Social Nerds 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, The Social Nerds discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when The Social Nerds believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The Social Nerds, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an The Social Nerds website and have supplied your email address, The Social Nerds 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 The Social Nerds and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. 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 in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. The Social Nerds takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If The Social Nerds, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that The Social Nerds 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 The Social Nerds may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted is subject to review and approval by a representative by The Social Nerds prior to publishing.
