This privacy statement is applicable
to simNetwork.com, simNetwork.net, and all other simNetwork
simNetwork does not collect personally identifiable information
about individuals except when such individuals specifically
provide such information on a voluntary basis. For example,
such personally identifiable information may be gathered from
a contest or sweepstakes registration, the registration process
for subscription sites or services and in connection with
content submissions, community postings (e.g., chat and bulletin
boards), suggestions, voting/polling activities and transactional
areas. Personally identifiable information on individual users
will not be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated
third parties without the approval of the user at the time
of collection. At such points of collection, the user will
have the opportunity to indicate whether he or she would like
to -opt out- of receiving promotional and/or marketing information
about other products, services and offerings from simNetwork
and/or any third parties. Further, notwithstanding any opt
out of promotional information by the user, simNetwork reserves
the right to contact a subscriber regarding account status,
changes to the subscriber agreement and other matters relevant
to the underlying service and/or the information collected.
Like most website operators, SimNetwork collects non-personally-identifying
information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically
make available, such as the browser type, language preference,
referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.
SimNetwork's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying
information is to better understand how SimNetwork's visitors
use its website. From time to time, SimNetwork may release
non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g.,
by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
SimNetwork also collects potentially personally-identifying
information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. SimNetwork
does not use such information to identify its visitors, however,
and does not disclose such information, other than under the
same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying
information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to SimNetwork's websites choose to interact
with SimNetwork in ways that require SimNetwork to gather
personally-identifying information. The amount and type of
information that SimNetwork gathers depends on the nature
of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our
forums to provide a username and email address. In each case,
SimNetwork collects such information only insofar as is necessary
or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction
with SimNetwork. SimNetwork does not disclose personally-identifying
information other than as described below. And visitors can
always refuse to supply personally-identifying information,
with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in
certain website-related activities.
Aggregated Statistics. SimNetwork may collect statistics about
the behavior of visitors to its websites.

send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit
your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going
