Dear Brides Noir Community,
The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for our website:
What Information does Brides Noir gather and how?
We strive to provide our members with a superior, personalized and customized Internet experience. To do so, Brides Noir gathers information through optional, voluntary registration about each of our members' geographic location, personal interests, and preferences, all the while ensuring the privacy protection of that information. We also collect navigational information, by using a feature of your browser called "cookies".
Through our site's registration form, and our online survey we ask you to voluntarily give us contact information such as your name and e-mail address, as well as demographic information (e.g. age, gender, income) and might also ask for financial information like account or credit card numbers, when necessary. Additional personalization features might in certain areas of the site enable you to further customize content areas or topics of specific interest to you.
We also collect "Log Files" to analyze the traffic on our advertisements, develop member patterns and derive basic statistics. The "Log Files" are collected solely for internal use and will not be passed on to Third Parties" unless it is collected for a promotion or event.
Brides Noir uses the information voluntarily given to us as a means to tailor parts of our service to your needs. Some of these personalized services are made available directly by us, while others are offered by our content partners. We also use the information in order to analyze and evaluate member preferences, comments, and suggestions of Brides Noir's offerings in order to improve the present and future versions of our website.
Brides Noir will never willfully disclose individually identifiable information about our members to any third party without first receiving that member's permission unless we believe in good faith that the law requires it, to protect the rights or property of Brides Noir. Notwithstanding the above, however, Brides Noir may disclose individually identifiable information about it's members to any third party in connection with the transfer of substantially all of the business operations of Brides Noir (whether of asset sale, stock sale, merger or otherwise). Therefore we cannot guarantee, that your personal information or communications will remain private.
To help our advertisers better understand our member's preferences and interests, Brides Noir creates summary or aggregate - but not individual - reports on a regular basis. (An example of the type of information provided in a summary report might be, "32,000 people clicked on Advertisement 'X' today and of those people, 85% were males who have indicated that they intend to buy a new car during the next 24 months"). Brides Noir's advertisers use this information to determine the effectiveness of their efforts. We never provide our advertisers with individually identifiable information about our members unless the member has given explicit permission for us to do so.
Use of individual Information. Individually identifiable information provided to Brides Noir is used throughout the service to provide an experience that is tailored to the needs of our members.
