CritiqueIt knows that you care how information about you is used and shared. This notice describes CritiqueIt’s policy for our web site (the “Site”) including all online services and functions.
You must register on this Site in order to use certain of the Site’s online services and functions.
During registration, you may be required to provide contact information, consisting of an email address, username and password (your “login”). You can select any username as you like, except that your username cannot be an impersonation of another person, a term that is the same or confusingly similar to a famous trademark, or a term that is offensive in any way. You may, but are not obligated to, use your own name. If you do use your own name, you consent to it being passed to others by use of certain of the functions of CritiqueIt and the Site. CritiqueIt reserves the right to reject or remove any username.
CritiqueIt uses both “session ID cookies” and “persistent cookies”. CritiqueIt uses session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate the Site. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. If you check “remember me on this computer” when logging in to the Site, CritiqueIt also sets a persistent cookie to store your username and password, so you do not have to enter it more than once. The persistent cookie also enables CritiqueIt to track and target the interests of users to enhance the experience on the Site. The persistent cookie is removed when you uncheck the “remember my email address” check box.
Your web browser allows you to control and limit cookies on your computer. If you reject cookies, you may still use the Site, but your ability to use some areas or functions of the Site may be limited.
Email from CritiqueIt for Newsletters and Announcements
CritiqueIt may use your username and email address to provide you with email newsletters and announcements. If you do not wish to receive these kinds of communications, you can opt out by unchecking the email newsletter and announcements boxes during registration. CritiqueIt also offers you the option to unsubscribe from newsletters and announcements by return email.
CritiqueIt may also use your registered name and email address to provide you with significant announcements about the Site functions or services that you are registered to use, about the Site, about any user account you may create, about fulfillment of a specific transaction you have requested, or about other significant developments that may affect your use of the Site. You cannot opt out of this kind of email.
Communication with Others
The Site may allow you to contribute to one or more blogs or communicate by means of online functions.
Nothing requires you to disclose your identity to others. If you chose to disclose your identity to third parties using any Site function or service, you do so at your own risk. CritiqueIt is not responsible for the privacy or security of any information, personal or otherwise that you may choose to communicate or exchange using the functionality of the Site.
Each item of information or any materials you contribute for such purposes is your “Public Content.” Public Content must be content and information that you have a right to disclose and transfer and must not violate any other person’s privacy or intellectual property rights.
Feedback to CritiqueIt
CritiqueIt has feedback functionality on the Site that allows you to submit comments, suggestions, or bugs found. CritiqueIt may collect your name or username and email address in order to follow up with you or thank you for a suggestion.
CritiqueIt may track the Site to analyze trends, administer the Site, track your actions and use of the Site, record transactions, and gather demographic information for aggregate use. Such analysis is not linked to personally identifiable information.
CritiqueIt may share aggregated demographic and usage information with its business partners. This aggregated information is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
When a Site’s registration/order form asks users to enter financial information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected during transmission through the Internet using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) software. If you have any questions about the security, you can send an email to =safe_mailto('email@example.com', 'firstname.lastname@example.org')?>.
Correction/Updating of Personal Information
If you provide personally identifiable information changes (such as an email address or zip code), CritiqueIt will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove your personal data.
Protection of Minors
Children under the age of 13 are not permitted to register on this Site or use any functionality for which registration is required.
Release of Information for Legal Reasons
CritiqueIt may release information concerning your use of the Site (including, but not limited to, posted Public Content, registration information, and network records) when it believes in good faith that such release is appropriate to comply with the law (for example, pursuant to a statutory demand, subpoena, warrant or court order), to protect against fraudulent, abusive or unlawful use of the Site, to protect CritiqueIt’s rights or property, enforce any contract between you and CritiqueIt, or if CritiqueIt reasonably believes that a situation involving danger of death or injury to any person requires disclosure.
