We have created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website.
We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our web site. Your IP address is not used to identify you. However, all posts in our forums and comments to articles have an associated IP address recorded. This IP address is never shown to other users and it is only collected in order to help us to prevent unsolicited posting to our forums (spam) or other breaches of our Forum Usage Guidelines (FUG).
All users have their user name, country and date of inclusion listed in our User List. This list is only visible to other registered users. The email icon allows users to send private messages between them, but neither the sender's or recipient's email addresses are disclosed. If the user requires privacy, an option is available on your user profile page to hide the user name from this list and prevent other users from contacting via those private messages.
You user profile page will be indexed by search engines. If you don't want your name and/or location showing up in search engine results, by all means leave those fields empty.
Our site's registration form requires users to give us contact information (like their name and email address) and optional demographic information (like city and country). If the user opts in, we use the contact information (email address) from the registration form to send any important information regarding its registration with Geekzone. Users may opt-out of receiving future contacts at any time. Please update your user profile page to change this option or simply contact us.
In the course of serving advertisements to this site, our third-party advertiser server may place or recognize a unique cookie file.
We use Google DFP For Small Business to serve ads when you visit our Web site. Ads can be hosted by Google DoubleClick, Tribal Fusion, and other networks. These companies may use information (but not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements on this site and other sites about goods and services that may be of interest to you.
