Legal and Privacy Questions
ALL THINGS IF, LLC, is a non-profit venture, funded by social enterprises (sponsors) which have built their businesses based on the ideals and spirit of “If”. These enterprises also contribute a significant amount of content to ALL THINGS IFtm; however, in order to prevent a conflict of interest and provide unbiased information to our readers, all inclusions in the magazine are made by the editorial board of ALL THINGS IFtm.
The ALL THINGS IFtm site is and will remain free of advertising; our financial sponsors cannot provide contributions to the magazine unless they are consistent with the mission. However, as a compromise with our sponsors, we have agreed to send our registered users monthly emails with highlights from our magazine, which may include relevant information from our sponsors, such as links to music videos, notifications of an author’s book tour, or similar information. We will send only that which contains a valuable message, regardless of the source. We do not sell or provide email addresses of our registered users to third parties (including our sponsors). To discontinue mailings, simply delete your account from “All Things If”. For more detailed information, including our “Privacy” policy, see our “Legal” page.
What information do we collect?
When registering on our site or posting a comment you may be asked to enter your name and email address. You may, however, visit our site anonymously.
What do we use your information for?
Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:
- To grant you access to posting comments and certain closed areas of the Forum. We require email address and registration you post comments in order to prevent spam
- To count the votes for contests in closed areas of the Forum.
- Not more often than once every two (2) months we may send email newsletters, links to articles deemed important by the editors of ALL THINGS IFtm, video produced by ALL THINGS IFtm, or important notification about ALL THINGS IFtm and its mission.
How do we protect your information?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you access your personal information.
Do we disclose any information to outside parties?
We do not sell, trade or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect our or others rights, property or safety.
