Privacy Policy

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.

Personal information 

When using our site, you may be asked to enter your name, email address or other details so that we can help you with your experience. We collect information from you when you respond to a survey, fill out a form such as our newsletter sign-up (powered by MailChimp), use Live Chat (via the Chats plugin), enter a giveaway (powered by Gleam), send money through our PayPal donate plugin, or enter information on our site. We may use the information we collect from you when you respond to a survey or marketing communication, or other site features in the following ways to improve our website in order to better serve you, to allow us to better service you in responding to your customer service requests, or to sign you up for a contest, promotion, survey or other site feature.

Protection

We do not use vulnerability scanning and/or scanning to PCI standards. We only provide articles and information and will never ask for credit/debit card numbers, bank account information or social security. You’ll find that no SSL certificate is included on our website because of the lack of need for one. We use a WP plugin for regular Malware Scanning to keep our readers safe and protected from viruses.

Do we use ‘cookies’?

Droid Turf has no control over cookies that are used by third-party advertisers. 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. These may be used to help understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide improved services. Cookies may also be used to compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future. Cookies are used to keep track of advertisements and limit the amount of times one can vote in our polls (1 per person). 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 can 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. Disabling cookies or turning them off won’t affect the user’s experience.

Third-party disclosure and links 

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

Google

We have Google AdSense and Google Analytics installed on our site. To learn about how Google uses data when you use our site, partners’ sites or apps, view this page. Google’s advertising requirements can be summed up by Google’s Advertising Principles. They are put in place to provide a positive experience for users. https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/1316548?hl=en

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. Should a data breach occur, we will notify the users via an in-site notification within 4 business days.

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 government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

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 that users can visit our site anonymously.

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.

CAN SPAM Act

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations. We collect your email address in order to send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions.

To be in accordance with CANSPAM we agree to the following. NOT use false or misleading subjects or email addresses, identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way, include the physical address of our business or site headquarters (will be provided to anyone via email), monitor third-party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used, honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly, and allow users to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each email. If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can email us at admin@DroidTurf.com and we will promptly remove you from ALL correspondence.

Other information

Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes on our privacy policy page. Users can change their personal information anytime via email. We honor do not track signals and do not track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place. It’s also important to note that we may allow third-party behavioral tracking.
