|This statement discloses the privacy practices for Pseudo.com.|
What Personally Identifiable Information of yours is collected
When you visit Pseudo.com, you will be asked to provide certain information about yourself (e.g., contact and demographic information) during our one-time registration process, which will take place automatically the first time you visit our Web site. Upon completing our registration process you will become a member of Pseudo.com. We use this information to learn more about you, so we can provide you with the content and information most attuned to your interests. You must be at least 13 years of age to become a member of Pseudo.com (see "Children" section below).
To enable many of the features available at Pseudo.com, we assign "cookies" to your Internet browser. A cookie is a small text file that contains a unique identification number stored on your computer. Cookies by themselves cannot be used to find out the identity of any user. This unique identification number automatically identifies your browser - but not you - to our computers whenever you interact with Pseudo.com. Only when you agree to provide personally identifiable information directly to Pseudo.com through our registration form will we be able to know anything about you other than the random number that our server computers originally assign to your browser.
There is a lot of confusion about cookies, how they are used, and what they can do. Cookies only contain information that the server computer "knew" in the first place, and can only be read by the serving domain that placed them. For instance, if XYZ.com (a fictitious company) utilizes cookies, Pseudo.com's servers can't read their contents nor can XYZ.com's servers read ours. Cookies are an essential part of how the Internet works today, and allow server computers to recognize your computer's browser when you return. If you have ever visited a Web page that automatically provides personalized content without you having to "sign in," such as your own stock portfolio, this is almost certainly being accomplished with a cookie. Since cookies are only text files, they cannot "run" on your computer and have no ability to search your computer for other information, or transmit it to anyone.
What Organization is collecting the information
The data you provide to Pseudo.com is collected by Pseudo Entertainment. Pseudo.com is a web site owned and operated by Pseudo Entertainment.
How the information is used
The personal profile information you submit to Pseudo.com remains your property, but by submitting that information you grant Pseudo.com the right to use that information for marketing purposes. Pseudo.com may also use such information to fulfill prizes, track compliance with our rules, or for content improvement and feedback purposes.
Our services have been designed to enable personalized content to those members who wish to receive it. The majority of the services that are provided for free at Pseudo.com are the result of advertising revenues. Our ability to provide enhanced services and content to our members is dependent on our ability to provide venues for our advertising partners that reach specific demographic segments of our member base. The better job Pseudo.com does in providing a mechanism for advertisers to reach specific sub-segments of our members, the more revenue we can generate from advertising and that ultimately is what allows you to get to the wealth of free content that is available at Pseudo.com.
Below is a description of the uses of the information that we collect and how our visitors and advertisers benefit from such uses:
1. If you win a prize offered at Pseudo.com, we'll use the information you supplied to contact you in connection with the applicable sweepstakes, contest or instant win game. We'll probably also congratulate you on winning!
2. We pay attention to what our members do and do not use on our service and modify our content appropriately.
3. We provide specialized content that can only be accessed by our members.
4. Through our Pseudo.com newsletters and email service, we will send members outbound email communications on information we think they will find useful, including information about new products and services from selected partners. It is our policy to never send messages to our members who have asked us not to do so through our unsubscribe process. In every email from Pseudo.com or other selected company, we will remind you of your option to change your preferences regarding receipt of future email communications.
5. Through our direct polls, we use your answers to track the demographics of our users Ė what you like and what you donít like. It is your option to fill out these polls and give us feedback.
How the information is shared
We may share, rent or sell the personal information that you supply to us and we may join together with other businesses to bring selected retail opportunities to our members. These businesses may include providers of direct marketing services and applications, including lookup and reference, data enhancement, suppression and validation. In addition, Pseudo.com reserves the right to release current or past member information in the event Pseudo.com believes that the membership is being or has been used in violation of the Rules or to commit unlawful acts, if the information is subpoenaed, if Pseudo.com is sold or acquired, or when Pseudo.com deems it necessary or appropriate. By agreeing to these terms, you hereby consent to disclosure of any record or communication to any third party when Pseudo.com, in its sole discretion, determines the disclosure to be appropriate.
What choices are available to you regarding collection, use and distribution of the information
Pseudo.com offers you the ability to control your information and the email communications that you receive. First, as mentioned earlier, the consumer always has the final word on whether Pseudo.com - or any Internet company - knows who you are. It is your choice to share personally identifiable information with Pseudo.com and we encourage you to consider only sharing information with any site on the Internet if you receive true value in exchange for that information transfer and if you respect the privacy practices of the company.
If you do choose to share personally identifiable information with Pseudo.com, you can control whether we contact you or share the information with third parties, either through our unsubscribe process or updates to your information.Pseudo.com will always give you a chance to unsubscribe to any email communication from us - clear directions for doing so will appear in any email message we send to you.
Pseudo.com reserves the right to send a one-time registration confirmation email, and occasional Service Alert messages to our members to inform them of specific changes that may impact their ability to use a service they have previously signed up for, regardless of whether they have opted in or out to receive emails from us. And finally, we also reserve the right to contact you if compelled to do so as part of a legal proceeding or if there has been a violation of our Terms and Conditions of Use. However, we will not contact you to market a new or existing service if you have asked us not to do so.
What kind of security procedures are in place to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of information under the company's control
Pseudo.com operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary, and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our members.
How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information
Pseudo.com believes strongly in providing you with the ability to access and edit the personally identifiable information that you have provided to us. To update the information retained about you, or to deactivate your account, please visit our Registration Update page at http:
Information Collected by Third Party Advertising Companies
Some of our advertising is served by third party advertising companies that deliver a cookie to you so the ads you see can be tracked and ensures that you are not shown the same ad too many times. Since the third party advertising company only tags your computer with a number, they know nothing about who you are. Pseudo.com does not provide these third party advertising companies with any personally identifiable information. However, these companies may use non-personally identifiable information about your visits to Pseudo.com and other sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here.
You must be at least 13 years of age to register and use Pseudo.com and at least 18 years of age to be eligible to win prizes on Pseudo.com. If you are under 13, you will not be allowed to register with Pseudo.com. Pseudo.com has implemented this policy and technology to comply with the Federal Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA).
