The privacy of our visitors to our website

We recognize that privacy of your personal
information is important. Here is information on what types of personal
information we receive and collect when you use and visit our site and
how we safeguard your information. We never sell your personal
information to third parties.
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in
log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet
protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or
Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet

Cookies and Web Beacons
preferences when you visit our site. This could include only showing
you a popup once in your visit, or the ability to login to some of our
features, such as forums.
We also use third party advertisements to
support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as
cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also
send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense
program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser
you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash
installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing
New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing
certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads
to someone who frequents cooking sites).
DoubleClick DART cookies
We also may use DART cookies for ad serving through Google’s
DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are
browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising
(including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to
serve ads specific to you and your interests (”interest based
targeting”). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous
browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about
visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when
viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about hockey). DART uses
“non personally identifiable information”. It does NOT track personal
information about you, such as your name, email address, physical
address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers
or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites
using this advertising by visiting
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off
our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by
managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security.
However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as
well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to
services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently
opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that
disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the
advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
