Thank you for visiting FunEHumor.com. Your
privacy is important to us, and we want you to know just how much we're striving to
protect it, so we are providing this notice to explain our online information practices
and the choices we make about the way in which your information is collected and used at
this web site. We do not believe in using legal or technical "mumbo
jumbo," so we'll make this as straight forward and easy to understand as possible.
WHAT WE COLLECT
At times, FunEHumor.com or it's site
administrator may ask you for personal information. It may be as simple as an email
address, or we may ask for your name or some other piece of personal information, so we
can verify that it's really you at a later date, and not somebody trying to impersonate
you. If you choose to sign up for our mailing list, to keep informed of when we make
changes or add new content to the site, obviously an email address is necessary. We
also run statistical software that logs all incoming IP addresses, domains, hosts,
providers, referring sites and outbound sites, what browser you are using, what operating
system you are using, and all of your personal credit card numbers. Just kidding
about the credit card numbers! Also, if you send us anything (for example, an email)
that contains humorous material for the site, nice comments about the site or a good idea
for the site, and we use your material or comments, we will, by default, give you the
proper credit by using your name as listed in whatever you sent us. If you do not
want your name mentioned, that's fine too, but we're not mind-readers... you need to speak
up. We will *never* publish your complete email address, your snail-mail address or
your web site address without your expressed, written permission, so wipe the sweat from
your brow and put that fear to rest right here.
WHY WE COLLECT IT
Quite simply, we like to know who
we're appealing to. It helps us figure out how to make the site better for everyone.
In the case of our web site mailing list, having your email address is the easiest
way to keep you up-to-date on the new site content. In regards to your IP addresses,
browser, operating system, and the rest of that stuff mentioned above, it simply helps us
figure out how we should design our pages to look, based on the overall makeup of how it
will be seen. For example, if 74% of the people who show up at our web site used
Netscape versus Internet Explorer, instead of the other way around, our pages would be made
to look better in Netscape. Incidentally, this section is what we're going to point
you towards if you bother us with an email that says, "Why do your pages look like
dog poop in Netscape?"
HOW WE MAY USE IT
Typically, if you have provided us
with personal information, we will only use it to contact you. We may use it to ask
you for your opinion on something regarding the site, or we may want to know if you can
help us out in some other way; it might be to participate in a site questionnaire, a
survey or a contest. But it will generally be used for our own purposes, to help us
better analyze who are fans are. On the other hand, we do believe in abiding by all
local, state and government laws, rules and regulations, and we have a strong belief in
remaining out of jail & court as much as humanly possible. So, if a law
enforcement agency of any type provides us with a request for information of any type...
well, the odds are good that we'll give them whatever they ask for. If a court order
or subpoena shows up in front of us, we're handing you over to the authorities without
WHO MAY ACCESS IT
The personally identifiable
information that you provide to us or that we collect through the use of statistical
software may be accessed by anyone working directly with FunEHumor.com. Employees of
FunEHumor have access to your information, and therefore, will all be required to protect
this information in a matter that is consistent with this notice, which is subject to
change at any time. (It's not likely that it will very often, but it could.)
Although we take very appropriate measures to safegaurd against unauthorized disclosures
of information, we obviously cannot assure you 100% that your personally indentifiable information
will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this notice. What does
that all mean? It means viruses and hackers are forever out there. We do our
best to keep them from accessing our computers, and we've been very successful so far, but we
cannot make any promises on that front. Sorry! If it comes to reality that
somebody who is not authorized to access your information happens to obtain it, and we
have a way of finding out who that person or parties is, we will do everything in our
power to prosecute them in an appropriate arena for their actions.
WHO *ELSE* MAY ACCESS IT
Some areas of our site may contain
links to other web sites whose practices and policies may be much different than our own.
These might include other sites that we link to or advertising companies who have
access to place ads, cookies, and the like on our pages for advertising or promotional
purposes. One such example would be Commission Juntion (cj.com) who we have an
account with to place third party advertisements on our website. We recommend that all
visitors to FunEHumor.com review the policies and procedures of those other sites before
contacting us about your information being obtained in a manner not consistent with
FunEHumor's policies and procedues as described in this document. We at
FunEHumor.com will not knowingly participate in any activities relating to the sharing of
your personal information, but we cannot be held
responsible for, or have control over, information that is submitted to or collected by
other third parties, advertisers or sponsors.
To enhance your experience on our
site, we may at times use 'cookies.' 'Cookies' are text files that are placed in
your computer's browser to store your preferences. You know... whether you prefer
men or women, things like that. Actually not. What we want them to store are
things like what your favorite sections of the site are, your last visit, how long you
spend at our site, things like that... mainly to make our site better for you specifically
and easier to use. Cookies by themselves do not tell us your email address or any
other personally identifiable information. Cookies are something we're *giving* to
you, not taking from you, so consider them a free gift. If you absolutely don't want
cookies enabled, you can turn them off in your browser (Internet Explorer, Netscape, Opera, etc.)
of your particular browser or email us for clarification.
OTHER INFORMATION REGARDING
If you believe we have incorrect
personal information for you, or you want us to forget we have any personal information of
yours, just drop us an email and we'll take care
of it or delete it, whichever you prefer. We're good that way!
If you believe somebody else has
provided us with your personal information, we sincerely apologize on their behalf.
We do our best to verify that all
people who submit any information to the site are who they say they are, but occasionally,
we fall asleep on the job. Just drop us an email
and we'll get rid of your information faster than you can say 'lawsuit.'
If you, or any other person,
sends any personally indentifiable information to others, we cannot be held responsible.
Likewise, if you send email to other FunEHumor visitors, or in any other way imaginable,
use our web
site, domain, provider or any of our facilities or services to make your information
available to people other than the people who maintain or help to maintain FunEHumor,
that's your problem buster.
NOTE TO PARENTS OR GUARDIANS
Much of the information on this
site may be considered by certain people to be offensive or dirty in nature. This
asking if their child is viewing material on my site, or even visiting my site for that
matter, I'm pretty much going to ignore the request. I'm not their parent... you
are. You keep tabs on them; please don't ask me to do it for you.
Your questions are appreciated and can easily be
shared with us by sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org
