What information do we collect?
– Personally Identifiable Information
When you visit us at www.offshorenewsflash.com we obtain and retain personally identifiable information based on your use of our services.
This can include the email address and name information that you supply us and we also get data from the information sent to us via your computer, mobile device or tablet. This information can be your IP address, type of operating system you use, location and standard web log data. We may collect machine data such as processor type, processor speed, operating system type, browser type, audio devices, modem devices, and video cards. This information may include the Web site’s Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address.
We also create customized lists for certain services, wherein the user of OFN needs to submit personally identifiable information to us. This includes the username, email and the user must create a password which is not personally identifiable.
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.
How do we use personally identifiable information
We use information you give us when you create an account with www.offshorenewsflash.com to enable you to use certain features that are available on the site. We may use your email address to contact you regarding any updates on these features.
We may be required by law, court order, governmental agency, or law enforcement authority to disclose whatever personally identifiable information we may have collected from you. We may also disclose your information to law enforcement authorities investigating suspected illegal activity.
– Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We may also use this non-personally identifiable information to conduct internal research on our visitors’ demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand and serve our visitors.
We also pass the aggregated data (but not your personally identifiable information) to advertising agencies and firms that conduct site analysis, such as Google Analytics, in order to help such companies feed advertising to our services in the most efficient manner.
We do not restrict the recipients of any non-personally identifiable information from using that information.
We do not monitor third party use of the information we share with them. However, none of that information can be used by third parties to identify you.
What measures do we take to protect the security of the information you submit?
Our website, and all of the data related to the services, reside on servers maintained by a commercial hosting company. That company takes certain precautions to protect the servers from intrusion, including securing the facilities in which the servers are located and maintaining a firewall to protect against unauthorized access. None of these measures is foolproof; and we do not monitor the web hosting company’s facilities or procedures to determine its compliance with the security procedures it says it employs.
