Privacy Policy

The Post-Modern Lifestyle Project ("PMLP") is committed to protecting the privacy of its Clients, Members and other visitors to its websites. This document discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices and is applicable to all of our websites.

Information Gathering & Visitor Tracking

Certain information is trackable about visitors to all web servers on the Internet. This information includes details about the browser you are using and a certain information that could be, under some circumstances be used to identify you. At minimum, your IP address and domain name (assigned to you by your Internet service provider) are available and trackable by all web servers. This information is automatically recorded in the web server logs whenever you visit any website. What is done with that information (if anything) depends on a number of factors. PMLP uses the above information, including specific page visits, for statistical purposes. This helps us to administer our sites, diagnose problems, and to provide traffic patterns and demographic information about the visitors to our sites.

Cookies

All modern web browsers are capable of storing and retrieving information sent to it by web servers. Your web browser stores this information in your web browser in the form of a "session token", more commonly referred to as a "cookie". Cookies can contain information that you provided to the website (such as your language viewing preferences) or an identification code that may be used to track your visits to this site. While it is not necessary to utilise cookies to track individual visitors, it can improve the accuracy of that tracking and therefore make your browsing experience more relevant.

We use cookies for the following:

  • to track your page views, including knowing if you are a repeat visitor.
  • to persist your logged-in status if you are a registered User, so you don't have to enter your password for every page you view.

For security reasons, we do not store personal information (such as your User ID or password) in cookies. If you are concerned about the contents of cookies stored in your web browser, most modern web browsers allow you can examine, delete and restrict how and where cookies may be used. Please refer to the help documents of your specific web browser for more information.

Tracking Via Other Sites

PMLP sites may contain links to other websites. PMLP has no control over the information gathering and privacy practices of such websites.

PMLP uses the services of an outside service provider to screen content submissions that violate our Acceptable Use Policy (AUP). Specifically we use this service to block any forum posts and blog comments that contain unsolicited commercial messages (also known as "spam") or vulgar language, and to report such violations to a central registry. This central registry facilitates blocking violators from posting on other websites as well.

PMLP uses the services of outside companies such as Google and Bing to provide additional demographic info about our visitors, such as age, interest and location. The information collected by third parties is statistical is not used by us to profile individual site visitors. Notwithstanding, these outside companies may use such demographic information to profile individual site visitors for the purpose of increasing the relevance of targeted advertisements.

Modern web browsers allow users to set a "Do Not Track" flag in the header of every page request, PMLP respects the wishes of our members and other site visitors by honouring Do-Not-Track requests.

Credit Checks and Fraud Prevention

In the case where a Client or Member enters into a Service Agreement, we may provide information to third parties to facilitate obtaining credit authorisation, or other reasons stated in the Service Agreement.

Public Forums and Personal Data

PMLP provides public forums such as blogs and electronic bulletin boards which may be used by its members and visitors to post messages, to be read by other members and/or visitors. Any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public and you should exercise caution if you intend to disclose information of a personal nature.
