Privacy Policy

At Technesstivity, we value our readers’ privacy, so here are a few things you should know:

You may provide personal information to Technesstivity in several ways including: (1) by sharing your e-mail address when subscribing to our newsletter, (2) by sharing personal information when you submit news tips to our editorial team or by submitting a report via our Contact Form, (3) by sharing personal information when you post comments on our posts or stories,

We may also ask for other information at other times but at no time will you be required to share any personal information to gain complete access to our site.

In addition to basic contact information, our analytics trackers may also collect other information. This may include the operating system you are working on, the Internet browser you are using, and the screen resolution of your computer.

How we use your information

Depending on the portion of our site that you have subscribed to or interacted with, we may use your information in a number of ways.

  • The email address you provided through our newsletter subscription form enables us to send you updates of Technesstivity news stories. This subscription is entirely opt-in by the user. (We cannot subscribe you to the newsletter as you personally must have access to the email account in order to verify the subscription.) Subscribers can opt-out of our newsletter at any time by clicking the “Unsubscribe” link that is present on every email at the very bottom of the newsletter.
  • The email address that you use when contacting us with an editorial tip or via our Contact Form will not be used for any reason but for the purposes of responding to your inquiry.
  • Email addresses provided in comments are not usually used for any other reason except that they may be used as a customer service and policy violation contact mechanism
  • If you choose to comment on Technesstivity stories through Twitter and/or Facebook Connect, we do not get access to your email address nor do we have any access to your personal data or private information.

To maintain a site that is free of charge, we display advertisements on our website. Unless you give consent, at no time does any party other than┬áTechnesstivity have access to your personally identifiable information (with the exception of Google who maintains our RSS subscription-by-email service), and unless we have your consent, you will never be contacted by any party other than Technesstivity. The only exceptions to the foregoing are that we may disclose personally identifiable information (i) in response to legal process, for example, in response to a court order or subpoena, (ii) in response to a law enforcement agency’s request, or where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take actions regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of another person, violations of our terms of use, or as otherwise required by law, or (iii) in the event we are acquired by or merged with another company.

When you sign up for our updates or receive e-mail messages from Technesstivity, you will always be given the chance to opt-out of our communications.

Non-personally identifiable information (such as stated above) may be shared in aggregate form with our advertisers, business, or marketing partners but your personally identifiable information will never be disclosed to them.

Who else has access to my personal information?
