General Information Collection:
Long Island Media Inc. collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools. Information collected may be used for purposes including but not limited to site administration and troubleshooting. You can visit many pages of our sites without providing any information at all, while other pages may prompt you to provide information, such as when you register for access to portions of our site(s), sign up for membership, request certain features, or place an advertisement or classified ad. You may also provide information when you participate in interactive areas of our site(s).
How We Use General Information:
We use this information only as permitted by law and as set forth in this policy. In an effort to respect your privacy, Long Island Media Inc. does not share, rent, or sell personally identifiable information with anyone outside of our organization. We do share general site traffic data such as viewership statistics, reach and readership. This information does not identify any user specifically. Some areas of our site may use “cookies” to store your user name and password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit. Please note that certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our web site (our web hosting service, for example) may have access to limited amounts of information. Long Island Media Inc. puts forth reasonable efforts to prevent the collection of data from minors. For example, some registration areas require users to indicate that they have been born sometime prior to 1992 in order to sign-up for an account. You may also refer to ‘parental control protections’ below for child safety.
