Our Commitment To Privacy
Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.
MikaFanClub.com is committed to your privacy, and does not sell, exchange, or release any of your individual personal information to a third party.
SCOPE OF POLICY
INFORMATION AUTOMATICALLY COLLECTED AND STORED
When you browse through any web site, certain personal information about you can be collected. Like most standard web site servers we use log files. We automatically collect and temporarily store information about your visit. We use this information for statistical purposes and to help us make our site more useful to visitors. The data collected may include Internet protocol (IP) addresses, domain name, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks. This data is used to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. Your IP number is visible to most of the websites that you visit. MikaFanClub.com may use IP numbers to help diagnose problems with our servers and to administer our Web site.
MikaFanClub.com is hosted by Invision Power Services. Please see their site for their privacy information.
PERSONALLY PROVIDED INFORMATION
The only personally identifiable information about you that is collected is that which you provide on a voluntary basis. We make every effort to ensure that whatever information you provide is maintained in a secure environment.
MikaFanClub.com will not knowingly or intentionally disclose, give, sell or transfer any personal information about our visitors, unless required for law enforcement or statute.
We reserve the right to perform statistical analysis of user behavior and characteristics while visiting this site. We do this in order to measure interest in and use of the site. We may share this information in the aggregate with advertisers or potential advertisers. We provide only aggregate data from these analyses to third parties. Advertisers will not be able to identify any individual from the data provided.
We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.
Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
A cookie is a mechanism that allows a website to record your comings and goings, usually without your knowledge or consent. MikaFanClub.com uses Google to track website usage, visitors, what pages are viewed, and obtain aggregate demographics. We can not see your personal information.
If you do not want to accept cookies from MikaFanClub.com or other sites, you must set your browser software to not accept cookies. Look in the Preferences (Firefox) or Internet Options (Microsoft Internet Explorer) feature to disable cookies.
If you disable cookies you may not be able to use certain features on the MikaFanClub.com website.
REGISTRATION FORMSThe MikaFanClub.com registration form requires users to provide an e-mail address and requests demographic information (like zip code and country). Contact information from the registration forms is used to gather aggregate demographic data. The demographic information is shared with advertisers, potential advertisers and partners on an aggregate basis only. Individual information is never shared with any third party. MikaFanClub.com does NOT sell your email address or distribute it to any other entity.
SURVEYS AND CONTESTS
Occasionally our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information.
The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes.
Anonymous survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site. Your personally identifiable information is not shared with third parties. We provide only aggregate data to third parties. Advertisers will not be able to identify any individual from the data provided.
