INFORMATION COLLECTED BY AUTISABLE

Autisable may collect certain information from you as described below. Autisable uses the information it collects for authentication purposes, to customize the advertising and content you see, to fulfill your requests for products and services, to provide aggregated, anonymous reporting for Autisable or third parties, to improve our services, and to communicate with you as part of the Autisable service.

Registration – Required Information

When you register for an Autisable account, Autisable requires you to provide the following information:

  • Username – a unique nickname or handle that acts as your primary identifier to other Autisable users and visitors, or viewers of Xanga material on other systems (e.g. search engines, RSS readers, cell phones, etc.). You cannot change your username and it is always publicly displayed, so please choose carefully.
  • Password – required for signing into your Autisable account. Your password provides access to all of the information in your account, so never share your password with anyone except a parent or guardian.
  • Email Address – an email address is required so that Autisable can contact you about your account. In addition, Autisable has several features through which information may be forwarded to this email address – including messages or invitations from other Autisable users, alerts, or logs of activity related to your account. You can control whether you receive certain of these emails by using the settings inside your Autisable account. Your email address is never publicly displayed on Autisable. But when you email someone through Autisable, your email address will be revealed to them (e.g. as the “from” or “reply to” address on the email you send through Autisable). In addition, Autisable has a search feature that allows others to search for you by your email address, but you can control whether you appear in these search results by using the settings inside your Autisable account.
  • Date of Birth – by default, for all new accounts created after 5/25/18 this Date of Birth is not publicly displayed, but you may choose to display it (or not display it) through controls inside your Autisable account.

Using Third-Party Sign-In Services for Registration

Autisable allows individuals to register for an Autisable account through selected third-party sign-in services (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+), for the purpose of using Autisable as a member. If you register an account on Autisable using these selected third-party sign-in services, Autisable collects the following information from your third-party account:

  • User ID – a unique identifier for your third-party account; not publicly displayed on Autisable unless it is the same as your Display Name.
  • Email Address – for communication regarding account information and servicing your account, and for verification.
  • Display Name – the display name associated with your third-party account; this Display Name, linked to your third-party account, appears along with the comments you leave on Autisable.
  • Profile Picture – the profile picture associated with your third-party account; this Profile Picture, linked to your third-party account, appears along with the comments you leave on Autisable.

Profile Information

After you have registered for an Autisable account, you are given the opportunity to fill out information on our profile pages. Filling out the profile pages is optional – you are not required to fill out any of the profile information. If you choose to fill out the profile information, please note that this information will be posted on your Autisable site (See “Information Submitted to Your Autisable Site”) and will potentially be accessible to the entire world.

Information Submitted to Your Autisable Account

As a registered member of Autisable, you get a personal account where you can publish journal entries, photos, additional profile information, etc. When you “publish” information to your Autisable account, this means you are sharing the information publicly, unless you choose to use Autisable’s features designed to help you control access to this information. 

Other individuals may submit information to your Autisable account in the form of comments. Autisable gives you control over who can submit comments to your Autisable site and allows you to delete comments submitted to your Autisable account.

Comments & Other Interactive Forums

Autisable offers many ways for users to interact by posting information to each others’ Autisable accounts or other parts of Autisable. These features include comments on individual newsfeed entries or photos, guestbook entries, chat board entries, memories, and the like (collectively, “comments”).

Autisable provides features designed to give you control over comments posted to your own Autisable account. But please be aware that you may have limited control over comments that you post anywhere else:

  • Comments on Your Own Autisable account – Autisable gives you the ability to delete comments left on your own Autisable site. For certain comment features, you also have the ability to control who (if anyone) can submit comments to your site. 
  • Comments not on Your Own Autisable account – if you post a comment anywhere other than your own Autisable site, you may have limited control over that comment – you can edit your comments for 15 minutes after submitting. And if you are still not satisfied, you can ALWAYS delete your comment and post a new one. But remember: any comments you leave on another’s site may be copied and posted elsewhere by anyone who has access to it – so think before you submit!

Using Third-Party Sign-In Services for Commenting

Autisable allows individuals to sign in through selected third-party sign-in services (e.g. Facebook or Twitter, etc..), without registering for a Autisable account, for the purpose of commenting on Autisable. If you sign in to comment on Autisable using these selected third-party sign-in services, Autisable collects the following information from your third-party account:

  • User ID – a unique identifier for your third-party account; not publicly displayed on Autisable unless it is the same as your Display Name

  • Profile Picture – the profile picture associated with your third-party account; this Profile Picture, linked to your third-party account, appears along with the comments you leave on Autisable.
  • Email Address – for communication regarding your comment.

Verification of Age and Parental (or Guardian) Status

Verification of Parental (or Guardian) Status

Persons under the age of 13 are not permitted to become Autisable members and it is Autisable’s policy not to collect any personally identifiable information from persons under 13. If you discover that your child under the age of 13 has created an Autisable account, you may alert Autisable and request that Autisable close the account. In this case Autisable verifies that you are the child’s parent or legal guardian by asking you to provide the following information:

  • Your child’s full name
  • Your child’s Autisable username
  • Your child’s birthday
  • Your full name
  • Your relationship to the child (parent or legal guardian)
  • Your full mailing address
  • Your daytime and evening telephone number
  • Your e-mail address
  • A signed statement that you are 18 or older and the child’s parent or legal guardian.

Autisable uses this information in order to verify that you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under 13. We retain this information in order to keep a record or our verification that you are the parent or legal guardian of your child under 13.

Other Information Collected by Autisable

Browser Information

Every time you visit a page on the Internet, your web browser sends specific information to the website you are visiting. Autisable’s servers automatically collect and store this information, including your IP address, the specific type of browser software, the pages you visit at Autisable, and information from cookies (see below). This information is also collected by third-party tracking companies that provide traffic analytics to Autisable.

Cookies

Autisable may set and access cookies on your computer.

Like most sites that have interactive features, Autisable uses cookies to recognize you when you return to Autisable and to keep track of when you are signed in (so you don’t have to re-sign in every time you visit a new page at Autisable). Autisable also uses cookies to target advertisements based on information provided by you (e.g. profile information suggesting age, gender, or interests), browser information (e.g. geographic location based on your IP address), or past activities on Autisable (e.g. whether or not you’ve seen or responded to a specific advertisement already). Autisable also utilizes cookies and tracking software to enhance it’s marketing efforts to promote Autisable.

Some third-party advertisers may also set and access their own cookies on your computer. Other companies’ use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, not this one.

Most browsers come with the ability to restrict cookies from specific or unknown sources. Please review your browser’s documentation for more information. Please be aware, however, that many Autisable features may not be available to you if you block the placement of our cookies on your computer.

Error Logs

If an error occurs in Autisable’s systems while you are using the service, Autisable’s servers may automatically collect and store information relating to that error, including your browser information, information from website cookies, and other information that you may have input at the time the error occurred (e.g. information you had written into any web forms). Autisable uses this information solely to investigate the error and help prevent future errors.

MANAGING AND PROTECTING YOUR INFORMATION

Autisable provides many features designed to help you manage and control access to your information. Unless specifically stated otherwise (e.g. on the page where you submit the information), any information that you submit to Autisable may be accessible to the entire world, unless you choose to use the available features designed to help you restrict access to that information.

Your Autisable Account – Restricting Overall Access

You can restrict overall access to your Autisable Account using one of Autisable’s privacy features. These features are designed to let you specify which individuals or groups of individuals can view the pages on your Autisable Account based on their status. You can view and update your privacy settings through your account settings.

Your Autisable Account – Restricting Access to Specific Posts

When you publish individual posts to your Autisable  Account (e.g. weblog entries, photos and the like), you have “Privacy” options to help you control access to those posts:

  • Private – if you choose this option, the post is accessible only by signing into your account with your username and password (remember, never share your password with anyone except a parent or guardian)
  • Protected – if you choose this option, the post is accessible to a limited set of individuals or groups (or accessible to anyone excluding a specific set of individuals or groups) that you select. Note: this option may not be available for all types of posts to your Autisable Account.
  • Public – with this option, the post is potentially accessible to the entire world. The information you voluntarily submit to Autisable for public display on your own Autisable account may be accessible to anyone who visits your Autisable account, through search engines, syndication feed readers, cell phones and other mobile devices, etc.

Please note that, for operational purposes, including performing maintenance and support, Autisable personnel may access your Autisable Account, including private and protected portions of your Autisable Account.

Your Autisable Account – Profile Information

Unless specifically stated otherwise (e.g. on the page where you submit the information), any information that you choose to fill out on our profile pages will be posted on your Autisable Account and will be potentially accessible to the entire world.

Filling out the profile pages is optional. You are not required to fill out any of the profile information. But if you do fill out any profile information, you can restrict access to that information using the controls described in “Your Autisable Account – Restricting Overall Access” above. You may also delete or edit this profile information by using the controls inside your Autisable account.

Your Email Address

Autisable requires that you provide an email address when registering for an Autisable account. You can edit this email address by using the controls inside your Autisable account, but it must always be an email address that belongs to you and is controlled by you.

Your email address is never publicly displayed by Autisable. But when you email someone through Autisable, your email address will be revealed to them (e.g. as the “from” or “reply to” address on the email you send through Autisable). In addition, Autisable has a search feature that allows others to search for you by your email address, but you can control whether you appear in these search results by using the settings inside your Autisable account.

Autisable has several features through which information may be forwarded to your email address – including messages or invitations from other Autisable users, alerts, or logs of activity related to your account. You can control whether you receive certain of these emails by using the settings inside your Autisable account.

Autisable Search Results and Syndication Feeds

Information that you publish publicly to your Autisable Account is indexed by Autisable’s Search engines and made available for collection by and redistribution through other electronic services through a publicly available syndication feed (e.g. an RSS feed), unless you choose to use the Autisable features designed to help you control such indexing or syndication.

You may prevent indexing of your information by Autisable’s search engines and disable your public syndication feed using the controls inside your Autisable account. Please note: if your information has already been indexed by Autisable’s search engines (e.g. your information appears in search results provided and controlled by Autisable), and you change your settings to prevent indexing of your information by Autisable’s search engines:

  • New information that you submit will not be indexed and will not appear in search results provided and controlled by Autisable
  • Old information that has already been indexed will continue to appear in search results provided and controlled by Autisable until those search indexes are updated.

INFORMATION SHARING AND DISCLOSURE

Autisable does not share, sell or rent any of your information, except as follows:

  • Information that You Share – Any information that you submit to any public or semi-public area of the Autisable system is potentially accessible to the entire world. Autisable provides controls for limiting access to information you submit, but please keep in mind that the moment you share your information with anyone, copies of that information can be made, stored, and shared outside of the Autisable system. 
  • Under Confidentiality Agreements – Autisable may share your information with trusted third party contractors and service providers who work on behalf of Autisable under confidentiality agreements. Autisable does not grant these third parties any independent right to share your information.
  • Aggregate Information – From time to time, Autisable shares aggregated, anonymous data about its users with third parties. This data does not contain personally identifiable information.
  • Legal Proceedings – Autisable may share your information in response to subpoenas, court orders, legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights and obligations or defend against legal claims.
  • Safety and Welfare of the Community – Autisable may share your information if we believe it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of Autisable’s Terms of Use, or as otherwise required by law.
  • Merger, Acquisition, or Change of Control – Autisable may transfer your information in the event Autisable is acquired by or merged with another company.

Third Party Advertisers

Autisable may displays targeted advertisements based on information including demographics or interests. Autisable does not provide any personally identifiable information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad. But advertisers (including ad serving companies) may assume that people who interact with, view, or click on targeted ads meet the targeting criteria – for example, women ages 18-24 from a particular geographic area.

Please be aware that if you voluntarily provide information to a third party advertiser (e.g. you provide your email address after clicking on a targeted ad), you are consenting to the possibility that the advertiser will make the assumption that you also meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad.

INFORMATION AUTISABLE RETAINS

When you delete information submitted through your Autisable account, that information will no longer be accessible on your Autisable Account. When you shut down your Autisable account, or when your Autisable membership is terminated, your entire Autisable account will no longer be accessible on autisable (please note, however, that if somebody tries to visit your Autisable account after you have shut down your account, or after your membership has been terminated, your Autisable username may continue to appear in a message stating that your account has been shut down; also note that some of your information may continue to appear in other areas of Autisable – e.g. Autisable search results – until those areas are updated).

When you delete information submitted through your Autisable account, when you shut down your Autisable account, or when your Autisable membership is terminated, Autisable may retain a copy of your information (including browser information) for archival purposes. Archival copies are not posted publicly on the Autisable system; they are maintained solely so that Autisable may recover content and restore accounts (in case of errors or system failure) or cooperate with law enforcement in order to make the Autisable service safer.

HOW OTHERS USE YOUR INFORMATION
