Section 2. Imaginis.com®'s Position on Your Privacy.
a. General.Imaginis.com® recognizes the premium you place on privacy protection on the Internet. Our employees share the same concerns! Working together, we strive to protect your privacy, including the non-identifying information you share in the personal profile that you must complete in order to become a participating member ("Member") within the Interactive Areas of this Site. Any information collected by our website, such as email address, will never be passed on to any third party, unless required by law.
Imaginis.com® subscribes to the Health on the Net Foundation Code of Conduct for medical and health web sites. To learn more click here: (www.hon.ch/Conduct.html).
Imaginis.com® does not collect personally identifiable information about Members or other Imaginis.com users ("Users") except when such individuals specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis. A Member's or User's access to and use of the Imaginis.com® Site or services constitutes information voluntarily given by the Member or User.
b. Use of Registration Information. Personally identifiable information of individual Members and Users will not be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties without the Member's or User's prior consent. Imaginis.com® stores the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer when you visit our site. This information is only used to create broad demographic summaries of where our Members and Users come from: for example, we know what percentage of Members or Users come from Europe or Africa, but our use of the IP addresses does not include identifying who those users actually are. However, Imaginis.com may use registration information and other voluntarily submitted information in the following ways:
To provide our editors with information that is useful in developing new features and services for Imaginis.com Members and Users;
To provide advertisers with aggregate - never individual - information about our Member base and User usage patterns; and
To allow us to potentially vary advertising based on Member and User preference.
Imaginis.com® reserves the right to perform statistical analyses and profiling of Member and User behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the site and to inform advertisers of such information. Imaginis.com® will provide only aggregate data from these analyses to third parties; no personally identifiable information will be disclosed. Imaginis.com may sometimes permit third parties to offer subscription and/or registration-based services through Imaginis.com. In this event, Imaginis.com® is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties and Members and Users should check the applicable privacy policy of such party before providing personally identifiable information.
It is not possible for a Member or User to delete his or her profile from our database, nor is it feasible to delete all traces of a Member's or User's activity in the system. Messages posted to any boards are examples of user activities that are not feasible to delete. However, we do offer you the opportunity to request deletion of your email address-the only individually identifiable piece of information about your account - from Imaginis.com's database.
Imaginis.com® may send email updates to Members. If you wish to have your email address deleted from our database, email us at and specify your email address and concerns in the body of your email.
c. Voluntary Disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information on Bulletin Boards, Chat Rooms, and other Interactive Areas (collectively referred to as "Interactive Areas"). Subscribers and Users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information (for example, user name, e-mail address) on the bulletin boards or chat areas of Imaginis.com, that information, along with any substantive information disclosed in the Subscriber's or User's communication, can be collected and correlated and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of Imaginis.com®. Imaginis.com® makes no warranties about the discoverability of members' identity by methods beyond our control.
d. Cookie Technology. Imaginis.com may employ cookie technology to allow Subscribers and Users to move more quickly through our site. Cookies are small text files a website can use to recognize repeat users and facilitate the user's ongoing access to and use of the site. Generally, cookies work by assigning a unique number to the user that has no meaning outside the assigning site. They do not come onto a user's system nor do they pose a threat to a user's files. Subscribers and Users should be aware that Imaginis.com® cannot control the use of cookies by advertisers or third parties hosting data for Imaginis.com®. However, if a Subscriber or User does not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows the user to deny or accept the cookie feature. Please note that cookies may be necessary to provide the Subscriber or User with certain features available on Imaginis.com®.
