Acceptance of These Terms
What information, including personally identifiable information, does Geekosis collect from and about you?
Our goal in collecting information from and about you is to provide you with the best web experience possible, including providing proper formatting for our web pages and to provide you with information on topics and gadgets of greatest interest to you.
In order to provide you with our services, Geekosis collects two types of information from its community: passive technical information and information you voluntarily provide to Geekosis, including personally identifiable information.
• Passive Collection of Technical Information.
Geekosis automatically collects certain technical information about each visitor, including your IP address, the type of browser you use to surf the Internet, your screen resolution, the URL you visited prior to arriving at the Site, and your computer’s operating system, without you doing anything at all. Your IP address tells us both your Internet Service Provider ( ISP) and the general geographic location from which you are connecting. We may also use your IP address to track the date and time you accessed the Site, how long you stayed on the Site, and what pages you visited. This information is used internally by Geekosis to help us provide a good web experience, including proper formatting for our web pages. This information is also provided in the aggregate to third parties, including advertisers, to describe basic use patterns for the Site, but this information is not linked to any personally identifiable information before it is disclosed unless Geekosis has obtained your consent.
Information, including IP addresses and domain names, is automatically logged to provide technical support for the Geekosis web site and its associated computer systems, to diagnose system performance or problem areas, and to detect attempts to damage or gain unauthorized access to the web site and its associated computer systems.
• Information You Provide.
Geekosis does not require anyone to register and become a Geekosis member to use the Site. If you do register to take advantage of Geekosis’s membership benefits, however, Geekosis requires that you provide us your first and last name and your ZIP code. Geekosis will ask you to provide other optional information. Additionally, we ask for your address, gender, and phone number as optional information in registering to become a Geekosis member so that we can learn more about who our users are and what they want out of our Site. In order to better understand our users and to provide you with a better web experience, Geekosis may analyze the ages of our users in connection with the pages our users tend to visit and which shows they access. Geekosis’s use and disclosure of the information you provide us, including personally identifiable information is set forth below.
If during your visit to the Site you complete a transaction such as a survey, registration, or order form, the information, including personal information, volunteered by you is used by Geekosis and/or third-party advertisers. This information is collected by Geekosis and/or third-party advertisers and may be disclosed by Geekosis and/or third-party advertisers for those purposes that may be reasonably ascertained from the nature and terms of the survey, registration, or order form in which the information was submitted
What happens to my information after Geekosis collects it?
When we collect personally identifiable information from you, we do not share any information with third parties outside of Geekosis without your consent. You can give this consent by “opting-in” to having your information shared with third parties when you register. These third parties may include our marketing partners, who may want specific information to better shape their marketing efforts. Additionally, we provide the community the opportunity to choose to be sent newsletters and other information. We will not send this information to you unless you “opt in” for these services and publications.
In addition, Geekosis will not sell, dispose, or otherwise transfer your personally identifiable information to third parties without your consent except as specifically set forth in this paragraph and in the preceding paragraph. When you choose to supply Geekosis with your personally identifying information, Geekosis compiles this information in a database with other Geekosis community members’ information and Geekosis reserves the right to transfer this information to a successor, related entity or to a third party purchasing or otherwise acquiring Geekosis’s assets.
How can you review and correct information you submitted to the Site, unsubscribe, or opt out?
If you choose to provide us with personally identifying information, you may remove your information from our databases by sending an email to [email protected]. In this email, you must include your user name and password, and a description of the information you would like to change.
What kinds of security procedures are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under Geekosis’s control?
Geekosis uses hardware firewalls to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Nonetheless, due to the inherent dangers of the Internet, we cannot guarantee the protection of such information against loss, misuse, or alteration.
Geekosis is strongly committed to protecting personal information collected through this website against unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. Geekosis limits employee access to personal information collected through this website to those employees who need access to the information to perform their official duties. Employees with access to personal information are made aware of the need to follow appropriate procedures in connection with any disclosure of that information.
Use of the Site by children under the age of 13.
