Privacy Policy

OnlineWritingReview.com wishes to offer a full understanding of our process to our customers and to make them aware of the fact that we have a policy which stresses greatly upon their privacy rights. This page will give you a greater explanation of our business, and will tell you exactly what kind of data we collect from our users as they come across our website. It will also mention how we use the personal information any user provides us with when they register to our website.

WHAT WE COLLECT

We collect the following two types of information on our website:

  • Aggregate Information

This appears when a visitor or a user accesses our website. We use our system to collect various kinds of information such as IP address, browser type, the time the visitor spent on our site and the pages he/she visited. However, this information will be anonymous, and we will only use it to improve the quality of our website.

Even so, we will store some information from your browser by use of “cookies.” There will be temporary cookies, but there may also be “persistent cookies.” Such cookies store a customer’s login information and make it easier upon his or her return on our website. Cookies may be disabled – however, the effectiveness of the website may be reduced, and it might be harder to load some details.

  • User of Personal Information

This becomes available to us once you set up your account. You will provide us with personal information when creating your profile so that you can communicate with other users, post, perform searches and/or send/receive information. This data is collected for your benefit so that you could easily experience all aspects of our website as well as communicate properly and openly with us.

USER CONTENT

Anything you may post on our website, you do so at your own risk. You can limit the access and set up some privacy settings, but there is no guarantee that the settings are fully secure. This is why we will take no responsibility for any third user that may have access to your pages or information. In the case of hacking, you should inform us immediately; however, we will not be held responsible for that since we do not support such behavior.

Once you remove any content you may have posted, we cannot guarantee that it’s no longer present on the website. If anyone else had access before you deleted it, it may have been stored somewhere else or shared further. We may also keep it in our archive, so it’s not guaranteed that your removal will be permanent.

You have to post while closely considering the Terms of Use Policy. As a user, you are bound to that policy and will be held responsible for respecting the elements mentioned there. If you find that there are violations of our restrictions, you are urged to inform us right away. We have the right to shut down any account and block any individual that may have violated our terms from our website.

JOINING OUR COMMUNITY BY INVITATION

One user may invite another to join our website through our invitation service. As a user, you will only need to communicate the address to us, and we will send the invitation. We store those e-mail addresses, but only to keep track of our responses. If you wish to remove your e-mail address, contact us with your request.

PERSONAL INFORMATION TRANSFER

By using our website, you agree that your information will be processed and transferred across the U.S.

AGE DATA POLICY

When it comes to underage people, there are two processes which we go through.

  • Children Under Age 13

We do not ever gather or solicit any kind of personal information from visitors who are under 13 years old. If you suspect that someone registered on our website, contact us immediately and we will proceed to act right away. We will delete any kind of personal information unless we receive a verifiable permission from a guardian or a parent.

  • Children Aged 13 – 18

We will not stop you from registering on our website if you are between 13 and 18 years old. However, you should also obtain permission from your parents or guardians. They should know who will have access to your personal information.

USING YOUR INFORMATION

When registering on our website, you will be asked to provide us with your e-mail address and your full name. However, once your privacy settings and profile are set, only your first name and the initial of your last name will be shown. This is also the information you will see when you access other profiles. Any privacy settings that share any more personal information will be made at your own risk, and we are not responsible for that. How much you decide to show will be considered your responsibility and all consequences will be supported by you as well.

Your personal information will be used so that we can send you notice about new features and developments on your e-mail. If you are not willing to receive our newsletters, we will only be contacting you with announcements that are vital for your account.

SHARING WITH THIRD PARTIES

Depending on your profile, your information may be shared with third parties so that you can see advertisements and promotions based on your interests. The process is similar to the third-party sponsored ads that appear on Facebook, having your interest in mind. However, we will not share any of your personal information – just your posts and what you released publicly.

PERMISSIONS TO SHARE CONTACT INFORMATION

There will be instances when we will share your personal information with a third party. The cases can include:

  • Using a third-party corporation to distribute e-mails, then that company will have access to your e-mail address.
  • If you make a payment on our website, a third party processor with have access to your data.
  • If any laws have been broken, we have the right to provide your information if a law representative or the court requests for it. Our company maintains the right to provide your information if, for example, the data violates copyright issues or the user has posted pornographic content.
  • If OnlineWritingReview.com changes their platform, the information will also be transferred to the new owner or company. Until new policies will be put into place, these terms will still be in effect for our users.

DISCLOSING YOUR OWN PERSONAL INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES

If, as a user, you share your own personal information with a third party, you will do this at your own risk, and we will not be held responsible for any consequences. Once you have shared the information of your own accord with a third party, it no longer falls under our Privacy Policy.

LINKS ON OUR WEBSITE

Our website features links that lead to third parties. We are under no obligation to check their privacy policy, so we won’t necessarily do so. Once you access their websites, you will be bound by their own privacy policy and terms of use, not ours. We will not be held responsible for any effects once you link out of our website.

CHANGING YOUR INFORMATION

You can change, remove or modify any of your profile information at any time. You can access the tools to do so from your account. Once you remove or modify it, we will still have it in our archives; however, once removed, other users will not be able to access your old information.

Shared posts are considered to be public. Once you remove them from your account, they will still be available in other places to which they were transferred. Thus, they might still appear on our website or in other places on the web.

SECURITY ISSUES

OnlineWritingReviews.com uses the latest technologies to protect the data of our users. However, once you send a message or an email, your content will no longer be secured, and the privacy protection will be brought down. If you share any of your personal information through these channels, keep in mind that they are not secure, and we cannot be held responsible for any of the consequences. Everything you share will be done at your own risk.

ACCEPTING THIS PRIVACY POLICY

Once you visit or purchase anything from OnlineWritingReview.com, you acknowledge the fact that you have read this Privacy Policy and that you agree with these terms along with those of the Terms of Use agreement. If any elements of this policy will be modified at any time, we will both publish an announcement on our website and announce our users via e-mail of the changes that have been made. Once we have published the changes, they will be considered official and will be immediately put into effect. Once that happens, every user that is registered to our website will be bound by the new terms.
