Privacy Policy

This statement covers the site thenicereport.net (“TNR”). Please read this statement carefully before proceeding to access TNR. Your use of TNR indicates your agreement to abide by the Privacy Policy in effect.

Information Collection
TNR is the sole owner of the information collected on thenicereport.net. TNR may collect information from our users at several different points on our website.

Comments
In order to enhance their experience of this site, users can choose to leave comments (where such capability is available) about particular articles of interest. To leave a comment, users must submit information including a valid email address. TNR uses this information to screen out users who leave comments prohibited by our terms and conditions of use, and will not pass this information to any other organization.

Mailing List
At some future date, TNR will publish an online newsletter. In order to sign up to receive regular emails from the TNR mailing list, users must submit information including a valid email address and demographic information such as location and interests. This information will be used in aggregate form only in order to assess general user interest in various internal and third-party products and services, and your personal and contact information will not be sold to any other organization. Users who choose to sign up for the mailing list will receive regular emails, including new articles added to the site.

Partners
In instances in which TNR works with editorial partners on story projects, contests, and other engagements, you may receive a partner-sponsored email from TNR. At that point, you will have the option to opt out of future mailings from that partner. We will not share any other personal information to a partner or advertiser at any time.

Discussion Groups and Cookies
In order to further enhance TNR user experience, TNR may launch a discussion board service where users can discuss common topics of interest. Users will have the option of signing up for this service, and to do so must submit information including a valid email address. TNR uses this information to screen out users who leave comments prohibited by our terms and conditions of use and to pick out topics of interest to discussion board users. TNR will not pass this information to any other organization except in aggregate form.

The discussion board service may use cookies. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s computer tied to information about the user. We may use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. For the session ID cookie, once users close the browser, the cookie simply terminates. A persistent cookie is a small text file stored on the user’s hard drive for an extended period of time. Persistent cookies can be removed by following Internet browser help file directions.

By allowing TNR to set a cookie, users will not have to log in with a password more than once, thereby saving time while on the discussion board. We store a cookie on each user’s machine that contains a username and encrypted password. You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. If you reject all cookies, you will not be able to use TNR products or services that require you to “sign in,” and you may not be able to take full advantage of all offerings. However, not all TNR services require that you accept cookies.

Third-Party Cookies
Some of our business partners may use cookies on our site (for example, advertisers). However, TNR has no access to or control over these cookies, once we have given permission for them to set cookies for advertising. This privacy statement covers the use of cookies by TNR only and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Log Files
Like most standard website servers, we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc., are not linked to personally identifiable information. We may use a tracking utility that uses log files to analyze user movement.

Legal Disclaimer
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, TNR may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our website.

Business Transitions
In the event TNR goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of a portion of its assets, users’ personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred.

Links
The TNR web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we, TNR, are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by TNR.

Notification of Changes
Whenever TNR changes our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, and other places we deem appropriate so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
