This pri­va­cy pol­i­cy has been com­piled to bet­ter serve those who are con­cerned with how their ‘Personally iden­ti­fi­able in­for­ma­tion’ (PII) is be­ing used on­line. PII, as used in US pri­va­cy law and in­for­ma­tion se­cu­ri­ty, is in­for­ma­tion that can be used on its own or with oth­er in­for­ma­tion to iden­ti­fy, con­tact, or lo­cate a sin­gle per­son, or to iden­ti­fy an in­di­vid­ual in con­text. Please read our pri­va­cy pol­i­cy care­ful­ly to get a clear un­der­stand­ing of how we col­lect, use, pro­tect or oth­er­wise han­dle your Personally Identifiable Information in ac­cor­dance with our web­site.

What personal information do we collect from the people that visit our blog, website or app?

When reg­is­ter­ing on our site you may be asked to en­ter your name, email ad­dress or oth­er de­tails to help you with your ex­pe­ri­ence.

When do we collect information?

We col­lect in­for­ma­tion from you when you reg­is­ter on our site or en­ter in­for­ma­tion on our site.

How do we use your information?

We may use the in­for­ma­tion we col­lect from you when you reg­is­ter, re­spond to a sur­vey or mar­ket­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tion, surf the web­site, or use cer­tain oth­er site fea­tures in the fol­low­ing ways:

  •       To per­son­al­ize user’s ex­pe­ri­ence and to al­low us to de­liv­er the type of con­tent and prod­uct of­fer­ings in which you are most in­ter­est­ed.
  •         To ad­min­is­ter a con­test, pro­mo­tion, sur­vey or oth­er site fea­ture.

Do we use ‘cookies’?

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its ser­vice provider trans­fers to your computer’s hard dri­ve through your Web brows­er (if you al­low) that en­ables the site’s or ser­vice provider’s sys­tems to rec­og­nize your brows­er and cap­ture and re­mem­ber cer­tain in­for­ma­tion. They are used to help us un­der­stand your pref­er­ences based on pre­vi­ous or cur­rent site ac­tiv­i­ty, which en­ables us to pro­vide you with im­proved ser­vices. We also use cook­ies to help us com­pile ag­gre­gate data about site traf­fic and site in­ter­ac­tion so that we can of­fer bet­ter site ex­pe­ri­ences and tools in the fu­ture.

We use cookies to:

  •       Compile ag­gre­gate data about site traf­fic and site in­ter­ac­tions in or­der to of­fer bet­ter site ex­pe­ri­ences and tools in the fu­ture. We may also use trust­ed third par­ty ser­vices that track this in­for­ma­tion on our be­half.

You can choose to have your com­put­er warn you each time a cook­ie is be­ing sent, or you can choose to turn off all cook­ies. You do this through your brows­er (like Internet Explorer) set­tings. Each brows­er is a lit­tle dif­fer­ent, so look at your browser’s Help menu to learn the cor­rect way to mod­i­fy your cook­ies.

If you dis­able cook­ies, some fea­tures will stop work­ing. It won’t af­fect the users ex­pe­ri­ence in re­gards to read­ing or view­ing con­tent. Cookies are present to make your site ex­pe­ri­ence more ef­fi­cient and some of our fea­tures will not func­tion prop­er­ly with­out them.

Third Party Disclosure

We do not sell, trade, or oth­er­wise trans­fer to out­side par­ties your per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fi­able in­for­ma­tion.

Third party links

Occasionally, at our dis­cre­tion, we may in­clude or of­fer third par­ty prod­ucts or ser­vices on our web­site. These third par­ty sites have sep­a­rate and in­de­pen­dent pri­va­cy poli­cies. We there­fore have no re­spon­si­bil­i­ty or li­a­bil­i­ty for the con­tent and ac­tiv­i­ties of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to pro­tect the in­tegri­ty of our site and wel­come any feed­back about these sites.

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the na­tion to re­quire com­mer­cial web­sites and on­line ser­vices to post a pri­va­cy pol­i­cy. The law’s reach stretch­es well be­yond California to re­quire a per­son or com­pa­ny in the United States (and con­ceiv­ably the world) that op­er­ates web­sites col­lect­ing per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fi­able in­for­ma­tion from California con­sumers to post a con­spic­u­ous pri­va­cy pol­i­cy on its web­site stat­ing ex­act­ly the in­for­ma­tion be­ing col­lect­ed and those in­di­vid­u­als with whom it is be­ing shared, and to com­ply with this pol­i­cy. – See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:

Users can vis­it our site anony­mous­ly.

Once this pri­va­cy pol­i­cy is cre­at­ed, we will add a link to it on our home­page, or as a min­i­mum on the first sig­nif­i­cant page af­ter en­ter­ing our web­site.

Our Privacy Policy link in­cludes the word ‘Privacy’, and can be eas­i­ly be found on the page spec­i­fied above.

Users will be no­ti­fied of any pri­va­cy pol­i­cy changes:

  •       On our Privacy Policy Page

Users are able to change their per­son­al in­for­ma­tion:

  •       By email­ing us
  •       By log­ging in to their ac­count
  •       Others (Forum re­quest or Private Message)

How does our site handle do not track signals?

We hon­or do not track sig­nals and do not track or plant a cook­ie when a Do Not Track (DNT) brows­er mech­a­nism is in place.

Does our site allow third party behavioral tracking?

It’s also im­por­tant to note that while we al­low third par­ty be­hav­ioral track­ing, this is only used to see how users are in­ter­act­ing with the site and im­prove site fea­tures. SuperNerdLand will nev­er sell your data to third par­ties.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the col­lec­tion of per­son­al in­for­ma­tion from chil­dren un­der 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts par­ents in con­trol. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s con­sumer pro­tec­tion agency, en­forces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what op­er­a­tors of web­sites and on­line ser­vices must do to pro­tect children’s pri­va­cy and safe­ty on­line.

We do not specif­i­cal­ly mar­ket to chil­dren un­der 13.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the back­bone of pri­va­cy law in the United States and the con­cepts they in­clude have played a sig­nif­i­cant role in the de­vel­op­ment of data pro­tec­tion laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be im­ple­ment­ed is crit­i­cal to com­ply with the var­i­ous pri­va­cy laws that pro­tect per­son­al in­for­ma­tion.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

We will no­ti­fy the users via email

  •       Within 1 busi­ness day

We will no­ti­fy the users via in site no­ti­fi­ca­tion

  •       Other – Within 1 busi­ness day or ASAP

We also agree to the in­di­vid­ual re­dress prin­ci­ple, which re­quires that in­di­vid­u­als have a right to pur­sue legal­ly en­force­able rights against data col­lec­tors and proces­sors who fail to ad­here to the law. This prin­ci­ple re­quires not only that in­di­vid­u­als have en­force­able rights against data users, but also that in­di­vid­u­als have re­course to courts or a gov­ern­ment agency to in­ves­ti­gate and/or pros­e­cute non-compliance by data proces­sors.

If at any time you would like to un­sub­scribe from re­ceiv­ing fu­ture emails, you can email us at admin@supernerdland.com and we will prompt­ly re­move you from ALL cor­re­spon­dence.
