1. What Information does BlackWebPortal gather and how?

We strive to provide our members with a superior, personalized and customized Internet experience. To do so, BlackWebPortal gathers information through optional, voluntary registration about each of our members' geographic location, personal interests, and preferences, all the while ensuring the privacy protection of that information. We also collect navigational information, by using a feature of your browser called "cookies".

Through our site's registration form, periodic online surveys and contests we ask you to voluntarily give us contact data such as your name and e-mail address, as well as demographic information (e.g. age, gender, income) and might also ask for financial information like account or credit card numbers, when necessary. Additional personalization features might in certain areas of the site enable you to further customize content areas or topics of specific interest to you.

Our servers automatically collect information about which sites users visit and which pages are viewed within our sites, by using a feature of your browser called "cookie" which assigns a random number, or "User ID," to your browser. The cookie automatically identifies your computer, when you visit the site. We also use cookies placed by third party servers to target the advertising delivered to you. This practice is common in Internet advertising.

Cookies also serve to make sure that you don't see the same ads repeatedly and to keep track of your shopping cart. However, cookies, by themselves, cannot be used to isolate the identity of any single user. They only identify the computer that is used to access the site. Unless you specifically tell us, we will never know who you are, even though we assign your computer a cookie. Internet browsers offer you the option to generally refuse to accept cookies. You should understand that certain areas of this site might not function properly if you set your browser to refuse cookies.

We also collect "Log Files" to analyze the traffic on our advertisements, develop member patterns and derive basic statistics. The "Log Files" are collected solely for internal use and will not be passed on to Third Parties."

Please note that personal information that you voluntarily disclose is displayed in the user profile. You can modify or update your user profile by clicking on "Edit Profile" after login.

2. Use of information in general

BlackWebPortal uses the information voluntarily given to us as a means to tailor parts of our service to your needs. Some of these personalized services are made available directly by us, while others are offered by our content partners (for example: GospelCity.com provides BlackWebPortal's music gifts). We also use the information in order to analyze and evaluate member preferences, comments, and suggestions of BlackWebPortal's offerings in order to improve the present and future versions of our website.

In addition, at your discretion, we will send you the BlackWebPortal Newsletter, which provides you with information about new products, services, or special promotions. In each newsletter, we will also include instructions on how to unsubscribe to future communications of this type.

BlackWebPortal will never willfully disclose individually identifiable information about our members to any third party without first receiving that member's permission unless we believe in good faith that the law requires it, or to protect the rights or property of BlackWebPortal. Therefore we cannot guarantee, that your personal information or communications will remain private.

To help our advertisers better understand our member's preferences and interests, BlackWebPortal creates summary or aggregate - but not individual - reports on a regular basis. (An example of the type of information provided in a summary report might be, "32,000 people clicked on Advertisement 'Z' today and of those people, 85% were males who have indicated that they intend to buy a new computer during the next 24 months"). BlackWebPortal's advertisers use this information to determine the effectiveness of their efforts. We never provide our advertisers with individually identifiable information about our members unless the member has given explicit permission for us to do so.

3. Use of individual Information

Individually identifiable information provided to BlackWebPortal is used throughout the service to provide an experience that is tailored to the needs of our members.

In certain cases this information will also be shared with BlackWebPortal's content partners who provide content or enhanced services, but only if you have given permission. When information is given to a content partner to operate a service (i.e., chats or free e-mail service) that partner may have its own privacy policy that you should read and understand before submitting any of your personally identifiable information to be shared with that partner. BlackWebPortal retains no responsibility or liability for privacy policies of those entities. Companies that purchase advertising on BlackWebPortal may track your navigation to and from their sites and collect aggregate information about you when an ad is displayed or when you click on their ads. BlackWebPortal does not control this collection of information, nor do we monitor the use of this information once it is obtained by our advertisers. You should contact these advertisers directly if you have questions about their use of this information. Additionally, BlackWebPortal does not control the information collection and distribution policies on sites outside of BlackWebPortal.

As part of our community-building features, BlackWebPortal allows members to participate in various chat rooms and message boards. Please be aware that any information disclosed in a chat room or news group, or on a message board, becomes public information. Members should exercise serious caution when deciding to disclose individually identifiable information in one of these areas. Your personal privacy is important to us, however, BlackWebPortal cannot ensure the protection or security of information disclosed within these areas.

These merchants have separate and distinct privacy and data collection practices. BlackWebPortal retains no responsibility or liability for the privacy policies of these online stores.
