Citia Privacy Policy

Semi-Linear, Inc. (“Semi-Linear”, “we”, “our” or “us”), developer of Citia Apps, welcomes visitors to this website which is one of our Citia Apps’ “web[viewer][reader]” micro sites (each a “Site” and collectively, the “Sites”). This Privacy Policy applies only to information that you provide to us through the Site.

We enable visitors who create an account, join or otherwise register to use a Site (“Registered Users”) to post communications and otherwise interact with the Site. This Privacy Policy addresses our privacy practices relating to general use of the Site, as well as use of the Site by Registered Users.

A. Information We Collect

We collect the following types of information from users of the Site:

1. Personally Identifiable Information. We may receive and store any information that you enter on the Site or provide to us in any other way that would allow us to identify you or contact you (collectively “Personally Identifiable Information”). The Personally Identifiable Information that you provide will be used by us only in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Examples of Personally Identifiable Information we may collect from you and use are:

· your name, address, phone number, and e-mail address if you are a Registered User or are otherwise asked to provide such information;

· the e-mail addresses of those who post comments, stories, photos, videos and other content on the Site;

· the names and e-mail addresses of those who communicate with us by e-mail;

· [in certain circumstances, payment and identity verification information, such as credit card number, social security number (or comparable national identifier) and driver’s license number when needed for payment information in connection with a purchase made through the Site;]

· information you provide about yourself when you post to the Site.

· if you choose to interact with the Site using Facebook Connect, we may collect information from your Facebook account through an automated connection to Facebook.

· You can choose not to provide us with certain Personally Identifiable Information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many features of the Site, such as posting comments, registering to use certain restricted areas of the Site, participating in our online communities, or receiving e-mail alerts or newsletters.

2. Automatic Information

(a) Collected By Us

We may receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us through the Site. We automatically receive and record your browser information, operating system information, IP address, cookie information and the page you requested. This information will not be stored in a manner that is personally identifiable with you and may include the following:

(i) Aggregate Information

In connection with your visit to the Site, we may automatically collect usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of users and their characteristics and information about similar groups of users, such as parents, certain age groups or users that live in a particular geographical area. This data is only used in the aggregate as a statistical measure and not in a manner that would identify you personally. Aggregate information generally is collected through the use of cookies and Web Beacons as discussed below.

(ii) Cookies

We use “cookies” to help you access and navigate the Site more efficiently and to statistically monitor how many people are using the Site. A “cookie” is a small file or tool stored on your hard drive containing information that allows us to deliver customized information to you. If you become a Registered User, we may use cookies to store your e-mail address, user name, preferences and password so that we can identify you when you return to the Site, track your use of the Site and customize the Site for you. You may set your browser to notify you of or decline the receipt of cookies. Certain features of the Site may not, however, function properly or be available if your browser is configured to disable cookies. We use both “session” and “persistent” cookies on the Site. Session cookies are temporary bits of information that are erased once you exit your web browser or turn off your computer. Persistent cookies are more permanent bits of information that are placed on the hard drive of your computer and stay there unless you delete the cookie. Persistent cookies store information on your computer for a number of reasons, such as retrieving certain information you have previously provided (i.e., username and password), helping to determine what areas of the Site you find most valuable and customizing the Site based on your preferences on an ongoing basis. Many companies offer programs that help you to visit web sites anonymously. While we will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these programs are available.

(iii) Web Beacons

During your use of the Site, you may encounter Web Beacons, which may come from us or from third parties that advertise or provide content on the Site. A “Web Beacon” (sometimes also called a “web bug” or “clear gif”) is a small graphic image in a web page, a web-based document or an e-mail message that generally allows the party that set the Web Beacon to monitor certain information about the viewer of the web page, web-based document or e-mail message and may allow access to certain cookies. Web Beacons are usually invisible to the user because they are very small (generally 1-by-1 pixel). In general, however, any electronic image viewed as part of a web page, including an advertisement, can act as a Web Beacon. Web Beacons on the Site typically collect the URL of the page from which the Web Beacon originates, the type of browser requesting the Web Beacon, the IP address of the computer to which the Web Beacon is sent and the time that the Web Beacon was viewed. Certain Web Beacons used by third party advertisers or content providers may collect information that allows such third parties to determine how many people are viewing and/or clicking on certain advertisements or viewing certain content for purposes of helping these parties serve and manage their advertisements and content. These Web Beacons do not collect or store Personally Identifiable Information but they may, however, be used in conjunction with cookies to identify certain aggregate information about users.

(iv) E-mail Communications

When you send an e-mail to us, we may retain your e-mail address and the contents of the e-mail that you send. If you want to keep the information in your e-mail(s) or posting(s) private or proprietary, please do not send such information in an e-mail or otherwise post such information to us. To help us make our e-mails more interesting and helpful, we also may receive a confirmation when you open an e-mail from us if your computer supports this type of program.

B. Information Collected by Third Parties

We may allow third parties to display advertisements on the Site. We and these third parties may use tracking technologies, such as cookies and Web Beacons, to collect information about users who view or interact with these advertisements and connect to the Site.

(1) Ad Servers

We and our partners and/or advertisers may use third party ad servers to serve or present the ads that appear on the Site and to conduct research about the advertisements. Any of these ad servers may collect non-personal information, such as your browser, operating system, date/time of viewing, IP address and clickstream data. We cannot control the activities of such advertisers or web sites. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PRIVACY POLICY DOES NOT COVER THE COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION BY SUCH AD SERVERS.

The Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) is a cooperative group of ad serving providers. The NAI has developed a set of privacy principles to which its members adhere. The NAI is committed to providing consumers with clear explanations of Internet advertising practices and how they affect you and the Internet generally.

If you choose to visit a third party service or an advertiser by “clicking on” a banner ad or other type of advertisement, or click on another third party link, you will be directed accordingly to the applicable third party’s website or other online service. The fact that we link to a website, other online service, or content or present a banner ad or other type of advertisement is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with the applicable third party, nor is it an endorsement of such party’s privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third party websites or services.

Other websites and services follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them.

F. Security

We are concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your information. We provide physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect information we process and maintain. For example, we limit access to this information to authorized employees and contractors who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our Sites. Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide reasonable security for information we process and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.
