Architosh Privacy Notice v1.2
Protecting your privacy is very important to Architosh. The following notice will help you understand how Architosh collects, uses and safeguards the personal information you volunteer to our Web site.
When you visit Architosh.com or our associated site(s) you do so anonymously. We only ask for personal or identifiable information when you join the following:
- Architosh Forums Boards
- Architosh.com and AIWUG membership
- ToshLetter Membership
- Architosh WordPress account (for commenting privileges)
- Architosh User Surveys
- architosh INSIDER Subscription
At no times do we collect personal information, including your email address, with the exception of the above items and personal email correspondence to us. We do log your IP (Internet Protocol) address (the Internet address of your computer) which allows us to analyze your visits so that we can better design the site for you in the future.
During your visits to Architosh, you may volunteer personal information about you or your company. This may happen via subscription forms, online discussion forums, comment systems, online databases, user surveys, or email communication. Architosh does not use this personal information for any purposes not specifically stated. And this information is not sold to any third parties or made available to any individual or company outside of Architosh unless noted during the information collection process.
Architosh, like thousands of commercial websites, may use a standard technology called a “cookie” to collect information about how you use the site.
When you volunteer information to Architosh through any means of collection, we endeavor to strictly guard your privacy. However when you volunteer information to us this information becomes the property of Architosh.com and its company. We reserve the right to publish, based on our sole discretion, certain or, any information forwarded to us through any means of collection, except the following:
- any email communication stated “not for publication” or some equivalent message.
- any personal identifying information when there is a request for anonymity.
- any personal information (about you or your company) on our site unrelated to AIWUG membership, a story on you or your firm, or some related news item, or your general group (username) for our new CMS-driven (WordPress) site.
In general, Architosh publishes news items forwarded to us from company representatives, public relations companies, and readers with the intention of publication. We assume all email communication is “publishable material”—unless stated otherwise or in contradiction with our Information Use statements.
Architosh is a site for adult professionals and high-school or college students. We encourage proper language in our online forums, commenting systems, and at no time will we publish offensive language in our writing. However, we cannot police our discussions or comments on our site 24x7x365. If you find objectionable content, written or image-based, on our site, please contact us. (Hit Contact in footer)
In our art galleries we reserve the right to show nudity related to artistic subjects. We permit our readers/users to post images in our forums that may display nudity in creative disciplines. Typically, this will be 3D animated type content (not photography of real persons), and Architosh reserves the right and will execute our power, to omit and de-post, or eliminate any images that we feel are in bad taste.
Third-Party Ad Server
Architosh may at times utilize third-party ad servers. While we will endeavor to make sure such “ad content” is thoroughly consistent with our policies; we make no guarantees that such material may contradict our stated policies. Such matters should be brought to our attention so we can make adjustments.
Architosh is fully committed to data security and utilizes appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect from you. However, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure the security of the information you transmit to us. In this regard, we urge you to take every precaution to protect your data while you are on the Internet.
Architosh’s privacy notice is subject to change at any time. We reserve the right to change the policy without notice.
