What information will you be asked to provide?
There are four different types of content on BridalGuide.com, and each has a different level of information requested. All are completely free to users.
How will BridalGuide.com use the information we collect?
First and foremost, we will use the information we collect to improve your user experience. We do this by monitoring the number of visits to each area of the site in order to determine what kind of information our users find most useful and which areas we need to enhance. This kind of evaluation is based exclusively on aggregate traffic, not on individual users—in other words, we watch to see how many users overall visit a particular article or area each week, but we do not examine specifically what any individual user reads.
Additionally, we may choose to share that aggregate traffic information with advertisers and sponsors. BridalGuide.com is completely free to users; in order to keep it that way, we need to provide advertisers with evidence that their promotions are being seen by the guaranteed number of users. We do not disclose any personally identifying information about users, and we will never provide any third party with your contact information unless you have given us permission to during the enrollment process.
We may also disclose information about our users if that disclosure is ever required by law.
How will bridalguide.com collect that information?
Second, we will automatically log certain details about each user's computer, including the IP address (your computer's unique signature), operating system, browser software, Internet service provider, and general geographic location. As with traffic patterns, this computer information will only be used in the aggregate, to give us a broad picture of where our users are visiting from. We will not try to associate an IP address with a particular user.
What can you do to protect your personal information?
We will make every effort to ensure that your personal data remains secure, but you should also adopt good practices to make sure you don't inadvertently provide access to your information.
Please keep in mind that any information you provide in a message board posting becomes public, and it could be collected and used by others. BridalGuide.com can't be responsible if an outside party is able to contact you because of details you have revealed, so for your own protection, remember to use discretion in posting identifying information.
