Information Collection

We track how our visitors use this site so that we can see what people like and don't like. We also compile information about use patterns and share the aggregated data with our advertisers, so they can gauge the effectiveness of their advertising.

We will not release your name, e-mail address or any other personal information to anyone outside of timberjay.com without your consent, unless we are under a legal order to do so, or there is an emergency involving danger to a person or property. We will not provide our advertisers or anyone outside the Timberjay with any information specific to you unless we have your consent.

If you chose to provide your personally identifiable information for the purposes of a contest or other reasons, your consent shall be deemed to be given for the release of your personally identifiable information with regard to that contest only. Only authorized Timberjay employees are allowed access to personal information about you.

Remember that any information you share in public areas, such as our comments area, becomes public and therefore this policy does not apply to any information you choose to make public. We encourage visitors to be cautious about what they disclose and that they do not post any personal information that they expect to keep private. Personally Identifiable Information is information that can be used to contact you or determine your specific identity.

The Timberjay may use this information:

To improve the timberjay.com website and service, to monitor traffic and general usage patterns, and for other general business purposes.

To inform publishers as to what content is appealing to readers, to inform advertisers of the usage habits or characteristics of the interested audience.

Cookies

A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a website's computers and stored on your computer's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookies to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) most browsers only permit a website to access the cookies that the same website has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.

Timberjay.com may use cookies to identify you as a repeat visitor or customer of the website, to maintain session information for logged-in users, and to track usage trends and patterns in order to better understand and improve areas of our website.

Timberjay.com has no control over whether and how our advertisers use cookies that originate from their websites. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but you may not be able to take full advantage of our site's features.

We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on our behalf. These companies may employ cookies and action tags to measure advertising effectiveness. All computers and servers on the Internet use IP addresses to recognize and communicate with each other. We collect IP addresses to administer and analyze our site and report aggregate, non-personal information (such as how many visitors we have). When you call up our site on your computer, our servers enter the IP address of that computer into a log. To maintain our users' anonymity, we do not associate IP addresses with records containing personal information.

We do not and cannot use cookies or IP address tracking to retrieve personal information from your computer.

Security

The Timberjay employs a number of security methods designed to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure correct use of information. Your personal data will be stored within a database that is located behind a firewall for added security.

No data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be secure. As a result, while we try to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. We are not liable for the illegal acts of any third party.

Timberjay.com provides links and pointers to websites maintained by other organizations. The Timberjay provides these links as a convenience to users, but it does not operate or control such sites and disclaims any responsibility for the information on those sites and any products or services offered there, and cannot vouch for the privacy policies of such sites.

Changes to This Privacy Policy

The Timberjay may change its privacy policy from time to time. If we make any changes regarding disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information to third parties, we will post notice of the new policy on our home page.
