Privacy Policy

Effective 6/1/2010
This Online Privacy Policy describes how InCultureParent protects your privacy when you use the incultureparent.com website. Safeguarding your privacy is very important to us. We take seriously the collection of any personally identifiable information and personal contact information (“Personal Information”) from our visitors and are committed to protecting each visitor’s privacy in accordance with these policies. We use the term “visitors” to include all persons who access our websites at any point for any amount of time, unless designated otherwise. Please carefully review our information collection practices and privacy protections below.


Your Consent to This Online Privacy Policy
By using the website, you are agreeing to the collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information as described in this Online Privacy Policy. If you do not consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information as described in this Online Privacy Policy, you may not use the website.


Personal Information We Collect
InCultureParent collects the personal information you knowingly and voluntarily provide when you use the website; for example, the name and email you provide when you post comments, provide feedback, sign up or send letters to the editor. Like other web publishers, we collect information to enhance your visit and deliver more individualized content and advertising as described in the section, “Information Sent to Us by Your Web Browser.”


Use of Personal Information
At InCultureParent, we respect your privacy and do not share your information with anyone. We may use Personal Information collected on InCultureParent to communicate with you about site features, articles, offers, products or other topics we think may interest you. On occasion, for example, we may send you emails using the email you provided to introduce a new feature of the website or communicate a product that we think might be of interest to the users of our sites. You may choose to “opt-out” of these emails at any time by clicking on the appropriate link at the bottom of the email.
Personal Information collected by InCultureParent may also be used for other purposes, including but not limited to site administration and troubleshooting. Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site (our web hosting service for example) may access such information.
As we continue to develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, visitor information may be among the transferred assets.


Information Sent to Us by Your Web Browser
InCultureParent may collect information that is sent to it automatically by your web browser, such as your IP address, the address of the web page you were visiting when you accessed the website, information on your operating system and browser, and the date and time of your visit. The information InCultureParent receives depends on the settings on your web browser. The information provided by your browser does not identify you personally.
InCultureParent uses this non-personal information primarily to create aggregate statistical information (that does not personally identify you) which helps us understand your usage patterns (to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive), improve the website and make it more compatible with the technology used by our visitors. This way we know which areas of our site are preferred by our users, which areas need improvement, and what technologies are being used so that we may continually improve our site.
Aggregated Information may also be shared with our advertisers and business partners. Again, this information does not include any Personal Information about you or allow anyone to identify you individually.
In addition, InCultureParent may review its server logs for security purposes, such as detecting intrusions into its network. If InCultureParent suspects criminal activity, InCultureParent might share its server logs–which contain visitors’ IP addresses–with the appropriate investigative authorities who could use that information to trace and identify individuals.


How Advertisers Use Your Non-Personal Information
Users will find advertising or other content on our sites that link to the sites and services of our partners, advertisers, sponsors and other third parties. We do not control the content or links that appear on these sites. In addition, these sites or services, including their contents and links, may be constantly changing. These sites and services may have their own privacy and data collection policies or no policy (policies) at all. InCultureParent is not responsible for the actions or policies of such third parties. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third party sites or services before providing any of them with your personal information.
Some of our advertisers may display ads on our sites which may use cookie technology to (i) identify non-personal information about our users (such as connection speed, browser and country of origin) and (ii) track user behavior within our sites. Advertisers generally use such information to customize the display of ads within our sites. We will not permit such advertisers to collect any personal information from our users within our sites.
It is not InCultureParent’s policy to sell or make available your personal information to unrelated third parties for marketing purposes or for any other purposes not expressly described herein.


Location
We control and operate this site from the United States. If you are located outside of the United States, please be aware that any information you provide to us will be transferred to the United States. By using our website and/or providing us with your information, you consent to this transfer. We do not represent that materials on the site are appropriate or available for use in other locations. Persons who choose to access this site from other locations do so on their own initiative, and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.


Liability
Although InCultureParent has security measures in place to safeguard the confidentiality of Personal Information as it travels over the Internet, “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet, and InCultureParent cannot guarantee the safety of transmitting Personal Information over the Internet. Likewise, although InCultureParent takes reasonable steps to limit the disclosure of Personal Information as outlined in this Online Privacy Policy, InCultureParent cannot guarantee that your Personal Information will be secure permanently. For example, it is possible that personal information could be lost due to technical problems or stolen. InCultureParent is not responsible for any loss or theft of personal information.

Any dispute arising out of or relating to your access or use of this website will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the state of New Mexico, and you hereby submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts.
