Please read the following information to understand our commitment to the privacy of each and every Social Bookmarking Community user.
Also, because Social Bookmarking Community uses the coRank platform, your Social Bookmarking Community account also allows you to access coRank.com and other sites using the coRank platform. Each of these sites may have additional privacy policies in addition to the basic policies that protect the privacy of their users. However, keep in mind that unless you actually visit and use those other sites, no account will be created there.
Out of the three pieces of information you enter when you sign up, only your username will be visible to others.
Further, you can complete your profile by entering additional information. The only other information from your profile that becomes available to others - assuming you entered it - is your name, last name, your country and region or state, your blog, your photo or avatar and your "about me" description.
Also, as you post new stories or comments to a story, the content associated to that submission is considered to be placed in the public domain unless you specifically say so at the time of posting it.
Except in some specific circumstances - mentioned later - absolutely nobody has access to any other information you enter when you sign up with Social Bookmarking Community, with the exception of yourself, Social Bookmarking Community and coRank administrator should they need such access for support or maintenance reasons or to get in direct contact with you.
Later, as you start using Social Bookmarking Community, some statistics also become available to others, such as how many stories you have submitted, how many votes you've made (both positive and negative), how many people are your sources, for how many people you are a source, and how many people have visited your profile page.
We might have to deliver personal information to a third party in order to protect our intellectual property, in any case always abiding to legal obligations.
Comments, once posted, cannot be modified or deleted. Do not include in your comments any information you wish to keep private.
Social Bookmarking Community will only use this information to better serve targeted advertising, but will never make any of this information available to third parties.
Social Bookmarking Community also produces and keeps for a limited period of time a history log of your access to the services offered by Social Bookmarking Community, including web page access, posted comments, votes, and other information regarding your access to our services, such as date and time, IP from where you connect, account you sign in and actions performed on the site, with the sole purpose of having a mechanism that allows us to investigate service abuse or to provide better technical assistance whenever is required, for example when you contact our technical support team.
Social Bookmarking Community is committed to not use this information for commercial reasons of any kind, except in the cases just explained above.
Any message originated in our servers that you may feel was unsolicited is always the result of the actions of another Social Bookmarking Community user - for example when a user decides to add you as a source, you will usually receive an email from Social Bookmarking Community asking for your acceptance or rejection.
Sometimes we may also feel that we have to send a message to several or all registered users because we believe it is absolutely necessary to do so, and always responding to administrative reasons.
It is also possible that sometimes an Social Bookmarking Community team member might contact you personally for some specific reason.
For these reasons, Social Bookmarking Community cannot be and is not responsible of any event that results in someone other than Social Bookmarking Community or yourself from obtaining any information stored in our servers.
Normally, when this happens, it is because your email address has been compromised before anyone can gain access to your account in Social Bookmarking Community, so it is a wise thing to do to use a different email address in the meantime.
Remember, your account at Social Bookmarking Community is only as safe as your email address. If someone gains access to your mailbox, they may also gain access to your account at Social Bookmarking Community.
Personal data information will be cancelled whenever it is no longer needed for the purpose of which it was obtained in the first place. Such data will not be kept in our files in such ways that might be used to identify a particular individual for a period longer than what was needed for the purpose of which it was obtained.
