We collect personally identifiable information (such as your name, address, e-mail address) when you subscribe to our newsletters, make a post or register for any portion of our services. Optional information such as your age, gender, interests and hobbies may also be requested. We also collect non-personally identifiable information (such as your IP address or domain, or about your site usage) for purposes of site administration or improvement, and to compile aggregate information about usage of this site.
Use of Information
uPolitics collects personal information in order to provide guests with a personalized online experience and to provide our advertisers with a way to reach the right audience. We may use the information you provide to fulfill your requests for our products, programs, and services, to respond to your inquiries about offerings, and to offer you other products, programs, services, companies or events that we believe may be of interest to you. We may also use the information to communicate with you, such as send you our newsletter, notify you about events or promotions, or to improve the services that we offer by tailoring them to your needs. On a confidential basis, uPolitics may also share personal information with our corporate affiliates or consultants or with third parties that perform a particular service on our behalf (such as marketing, printing, mailing, credit card processing, or general site administration), and may also share aggregate information with third parties for advertising and promotional purposes. We may also disclose personal information in response to a legal process, such as a request by law enforcement, a court order or subpoena, or to protect the integrity of our site if we believe that a guest has committed unlawful or otherwise harmful acts.
Use of IP Address
An IP address (Internet Protocol address) is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider whenever you log on to the Web. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address, so when a guest requests pages from our site, our servers log the guest’s IP address. The IP addresses of our guests are collected only for the purposes of system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers, our corporate affiliates or consultants, or with third parties that perform a particular service on our behalf. We do not combine IP addresses with any personally identifiable information, nor do we compile any session activity reports by IP address.
When registering for our newsletter on this site, uPolitics provides visitors with an opportunity to receive offers from advertisers and other companies who have services, products, and offers that we think might be of interest to you. If you do not at that time indicate a preference not to receive such offers, uPolitics will from time to time provide your contact information to these entities so that they may send you these offers. If you do not decline to receive such offers at the time you provide your information or if you change your mind and no longer want us to share your contact information with others, send an e-mail to editor@uPolitics.com as described in the Privacy Options section below.
If you provide information to uPolitics in connection with a promotion with a third-party entity or web site linked to this site (such as the purchase of other products), the information you provide will be used for the purpose for which you provided the information and will be shared with that third-party entity. These third-party entities may obtain personally identifiable information that guests voluntarily submit to participate in the promotion. uPolitics has no control over the third-party entities’ use of this information. Your personal information may also be used for other purposes that may be disclosed at the time your information is requested.

At the time you are requested to provide personal information on this site, you may have the opportunity to elect to, or not to, receive e-mail offers from uPolitics or have your personal information shared with other companies. You may also make this request by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. In this e-mail please say whether you would like to opt-out of receiving e-mail offers from uPolitics and/or having your personal information shared with other companies. Also, a request to have us stop sharing your personal information with other companies will only apply as of the date of the request, and uPolitics will not be responsible for any communications that you may receive from companies that received your personal information prior to your request. In these cases, please contact that company directly.
If you prefer not to receive traditional mail or other off-line promotions from uPolitics, please send us an e-mail at email@example.com. uPolitics will not use or transfer personally identifiable information provided to us in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you with an opportunity to opt-out of these unrelated uses.
