Privacy Policy

Effective as of July 8, 2013 (the "Effective Date")

Your privacy is important to us. MegaCynics Inc. ("MegaCynics", "We", "Our", "Us") has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our commitment to your privacy. This Privacy Policy (the "Policy") explains what information We collect about you and what We do with it and applies to all products and services We offer.

We reserve the right to modify this Policy at any time, and We will notify you of any material changes to the Policy by posting the modified Policy at http://www.megacynics.com/privacy-policy/ and changing the Effective Date at the top. We encourage you to check this page periodically for any changes. This Policy is incorporated into, and subject to, the Terms of Use at: http://www.megacynics.com/terms-of-use/.

By using or navigating the web site located at MegaCynics.com, or any product or service We offer, (collectively the "Services"), you acknowledge that you have read, understand, and agree to be bound by this Policy or any modified Policy as posted. If you do not agree to these terms, please do not use or access the Services.

What information is collected?

We do not share any personal, identifying information with third parties. We may share anonymous, non-identifying information we collect with third party service providers to manage certain aspects of the Services we provide. We ensure that the third party service providers with whom we share this information with have privacy policies in place substantially similar to our own.

We do not collect personally identifiable information except where you specifically provide us with such information. With your consent, We may collect your full name, e-mail address, street address, telephone number, and other contact information.

We are opposed to spam mail activities and We do not participate in such mailings, nor do we release or authorize the use of membership data for such purposes.

Aggregate technical information (such as IP addresses, screen resolution, browser language, etc.) and anonymous demographic information (such as your postal or zip code, the web site that you came from, etc.) is collected during your usage of the Services.

We offer merchandise for sale through an online store. This store is run by a third party. We do not have access to your credit card information or other information about your orders. You use of the web store is governed by their terms of use and privacy policy, which can be found by clicking on the appropriate footer links while using the web store.

What is done with the information collected?

We use the information to create summary statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing the number of visitors to the different sections of our site, what information is of most and least interest, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas. We also use the information to improve the content of our web page in order to enhance your experience, and to contact you when necessary.

Whenever possible, We use non-identifiable information (such as IP addresses and anonymous demographic information) rather than personal information. Non-identifiable information may be used to tailor your experiences with our Services by showing content in which We think you may be interested, and displaying content according to your preferences. We may use aggregate data for a variety of purposes, including analyzing user behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in (and use of) the various portions and areas of our Services. We also use the information collected to evaluate and improve our services and analyze traffic to our Services.

Personal information collected on our Services is typically stored and processed in Canada; however, in some instances, it may be transferred, stored, and/or processed outside of Canada. It is important for you to note that the laws on holding data in Canada (or any other country in which We transfer, store or process your data) may be less stringent than the laws of your country, but We intend to adhere to the principles set forth in this Policy, unless otherwise required by applicable laws. By using our Services, you consent to the transfer of your personal information to any country in the world in accordance with the terms of this Policy.

Is information collected shared with third parties?

We are opposed to spam mail activities and We do not participate in such mailings, nor do we release or authorize the use of membership data for such purposes.

We may use statistical analysis of aggregate information to inform advertisers of aggregate user demographics and behavior, as well as the number of users that have been exposed to or clicked on their advertising banners. We provide only aggregate data from this analysis to third parties.

We may transfer your information to a third party as a result of a sale, acquisition, merger, or reorganization involving MegaCynics, its affiliates, related companies, or any of their respective assets.

We may also disclose information in special cases if required to do so by law, court order, or other governmental authority, or when we believe in good faith that disclosing this information is otherwise necessary or advisable, such as to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to — or interfering with — Our rights or property, the Services, another user, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities (for example, identify theft or fraud).

How do we advertise?

Advertisements that may appear in the Services are generally delivered (or "served") directly to you by third party advertisers, and they automatically receive your IP address when this happens. These third party advertisers may also download cookies to your computer or use other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. Doing this allows them to recognize your computer each time they send you an advertisement in order to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. In this way, they may compile information about where individuals using your computer or browser saw their advertisements and determine which advertisements were clicked. Third party advertisers have no access to the information you have provided to Us unless you also choose to provide it to them yourself directly.

Do Our Services use cookies?

Yes. "Cookies" are pieces of information (actually, alphanumeric identifiers) generated by web servers and stored in your computer for future access. Cookies cannot view or retrieve data from other cookies, nor can they capture files or data stored on your computer. We, our partners, and our suppliers may use cookie technology to enhance your online experience by making it easier for you to navigate through our Services or make a feature work better. We also use cookies to track affiliates that refer you to our Services. These particular cookies are saved on your computer and collect no data from you. Generally, cookies can be disabled. The "help" portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. If you would like to use the Services, you may do so without accepting cookies. However, you should understand that if you choose not to accept cookies, some areas of the Services may not function properly or optimally and you will not be permitted to access certain secured areas of the Services.

Do Our Services use web beacons?

Yes. "Web beacons", also known as "web bugs", are small images, generally a single transparent pixel, served to you as part of a web page or other document. Web beacons may be used in parts of our Services for purposes such as site traffic reporting, unique visitor counts, advertising auditing and reporting, and personalization. These beacons do not collect personally identifiable information, and do not transfer any personally identifiable information to third parties. If beacons are used by any of our advertising services suppliers, that supplier's privacy policy governs their use. Please see the section "How do we advertise" above for a list of advertisers and policies.

For more information on web beacons, see: http://www.allaboutcookies.org/faqs/beacons.html

Is correspondence that you send to us saved?

Yes. If you send us correspondence, including e-mails and faxes, We may retain such information. We may retain these records in order to measure and improve our customer service, and to investigate potential fraud and violation of Our Terms of Use. We may, over time, delete these records.

Is information submitted in public forums confidential?

No. The Services may offer chat rooms, forums, message boards, or news groups. IT IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT ANY INFORMATION DISCLOSED IN THESE AREAS BECOMES PUBLIC INFORMATION. Accordingly, you should exercise extreme caution when deciding to disclose your personal information and you do so at your own risk.

Does this Policy apply to other websites?

No. The Services contain links to other Internet websites. By clicking on a third party advertising banner or certain other links, you will be redirected out of the Services and to such third party websites.

We are not responsible for the privacy policies of other websites or services. You should make sure that you read and understand any applicable third party privacy policies, and you should direct any questions concerns to the relevant third party administrators or webmasters prior to providing any personally identifiable information.
