Privacy

User privacy is very important to Heysayer and to all those who work on Heysayer related sites. Below is information regarding Heysayer’s commitment to protect the privacy of users and to promote integrity of internet users.

User Information

During your visit to the site, Heysayer does not collect any personally-identifiable information about you beyond what you specifically volunteer. This information may be volunteered when you create an account through the Heysayer discussion forums or article comment system. Even then, Heysayer does not use that stored information for any purpose other than to allow you to log in and post messages.

Heysayer does, however, automatically collect certain non-personally-identifiable information about you, such as your browser type and the IP address that your ISP designates to your machine (which, usually changes periodically depending of your type of Internet connection). This is standard practice for web sites, and is not used for any purpose other than to statistically evaluate site performance. This information is not sold to any third parties or available to anybody outside of the Heysayer staff.

Security

As effective as any security measure implemented by Heysayer may be, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.

Cookies

Along with countless other Web sites, Heysayer and its related sites use cookies to enhance your experience. Cookies are used in the Heysayer discussion forums to keep track of which messages have been posted since your last visit, easing the navigation of the forums. Cookies can also store your user name and password so that you do not have to log in each time you want to post a message or article comment, though you must specifically request that this feature be turned on. Other user settings such as preferred site display options are also managed by cookies.

Cookie data is not stored on the server, and therefore, not available for viewing by Heysayer staff or any third parties. However, it is possible that security flaws exist in some browsers that would allow other site administrators to write malicious scripts that would collect this data without Heysayer’s knowledge, though this is quite unlikely.

If you would like to opt-out of Non Personally Identifiable Information (PII) cookie tracking, please visit the NAI opt-out page here: http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/.

Third-party Links

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. Therefore, we have no responsibility nor liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. However, we seek to support integrity at this site and elsewhere, and welcome any feedback, negative or positive, about these sites.

We are committed to continuing to protect the privacy of our readers. If you have any additional questions, please contact us at policies@heysayer.com.

We recommend that you review this Privacy Statement periodically, as Heysayer may update it from time to time without notice to its users.
