Neo-Addict.Net Privacy Policy

Neo-Addict.Net is committed to providing a fun, entertaining, and safe Web site for our visitors. We are dedicated to safeguarding any personal information collected on-line. To this end, we ensure that our privacy policy and our information practices adhere to the U.S. Department of Commerce's Safe Harbor Principles and also to the Children's Online Protection Privacy Act (COPPA). Because many of the visitors to this site are children, we take care that our content is suitable for children. In addition, we take special measures to help children protect their privacy while on-line. For example, we do not ask children to disclose more personal information than is necessary for them to participate in a particular activity, and we take efforts to prevent children from posting contact information.

To help ensure a rewarding on-line experience for our visitors - and for the parents of our visitors who are children - we provide you with this summary of our information practices.

As we continue to offer our visitors new and different types of content and services, we may modify our practices from time to time. However, we will treat all personal information we collect in accordance with the privacy notice in effect at the time the information is collected.

I. The Information We Collect

At Neo-Addict.Net, we do not collect much personally identifiable information from users 12 years old and younger. However, they must enter a valid email adress to gain access to the Neo-Addict.Net forums. When they enter this email adress they have the option of keeping it private.

Neo-Addict.Net also gives its users the option to voluntarily enter additional information such as their Neopets.com username or their name.

Users can also change their user information supplied upon registration (except for username) on this page: http://forum.backstageneopets.com/usercp.php and follow the directions on this page. It is not a requirement for users to enter their name.

Additionally, when visitors come to our site, we automatically collect some non-personally identifiable "computer" information, such as the type of computer operating system (e.g., Windows XP or Mac OS X), the user's "IP Address", the web browser (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer, FireFox) being used, and information regarding the Internet service provider.

II. How We Use the Information

We use visitors' personal information for our internal purposes of enabling visitors to chat on our message boards, or to inform users of upcoming events and special announcements.

We sometimes use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the content and speed of our site. We also may use this information in the aggregate to analyze site usage, as well as to improve services.

We will disclose information we maintain when required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We also may disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency's or other public agency's (including schools or children services) request or if we feel that such disclosure may prevent the instigation of a crime.

We will not use or transfer personally identifiable information in ways that are materially different from the ones described above without also providing notification of such practices and obtaining consent for any materially different uses. Additionally, Neo-Addict.Net will never sell information to any third party.

III. Collection of Information by Third-Party Sites

Our site contains links to other sites, whose information practices may be different from ours. Visitors should consult the other sites' privacy notices, since those sites are not covered by our privacy policy and may follow procedures that are different from ours. Neo-Addict.Net never gives any of our users' information to such third parties.

IV. Cookies

Neo-Addict.Net makes use of cookies to store your login information if you are registered, and your last visit to the forums if you are not. Cookies are small text documents stored on your computer; the cookies set by Neo-Addict.Net can only be used on Neo-Addict.Net and pose no security risk.

VIII. A Final Note to Parents

The Internet offers a world of opportunity for children. Your guidance and involvement are essential to help ensure that children have a safe and rewarding on-line experience. We encourage you to visit The FTC's kidz privacy Web site(http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/edcams/kidzprivacy/) and explore. Kidz Privacy helps families learn how information flows on-line so they can use the Internet in ways that protect their privacy and well-being. It also contains a number of valuable resources to help parents and children be aware of and express their preferences about information that is collected on-line and how it is used. Your efforts to instill responsible information practices will help steer your children to age-appropriate sites and will go a long way toward ensuring that your children have enriching experiences on-line.

IX. Effective Date

The privacy policy set out above is effective as of July 31, 2006, and applies to all information previously obtained by Neo-Addict.Net. Neo-Addict.Net reserves the right to change its privacy policy at its sole discretion. Neo-Addict.Net users will be informed of any such change by Neo-Addict.Net posting a new privacy policy on the Neo-Addict.Net website. The effective date of any change of privacy policy will be clearly marked.
