MavenPages Privacy Policy

MavenPages knows that you care about how your personal information is used and shared, and we take your privacy seriously. Please read the following to learn more about our privacy policy. By visiting the MavenPages website, you are accepting the practices outlined in this Privacy Policy.


What Does This Privacy Policy Cover?

This Privacy Policy covers MavenPages's treatment of personal information that MavenPages gathers when you are on the MavenPages website and when you use MavenPages services.

This policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that MavenPages does not own or control, or to individuals that MavenPages does not employ or manage.


What Personal Information About Users Does MavenPages Collect?

Our primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide you with a friendly, customized, and efficient experience. We only collect personal information that is relevant to the purpose of our website. We do not process this information in a way that is incompatible with the purpose for which it has been collected or subsequently authorized by you. We collect the following types of information from our users:

  1. Information You Provide to Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our website or provide to us in any other way. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our special features. The personal information you provide is used for such purposes as registration and the creation of your professional profile. In order for you to use MavenPages services, such as creating a profile listing for the website, you must complete a registration form. As part of this registration form, we require your name and email address.

  2. Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. MavenPages automatically receives and records certain "traffic data" on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, MavenPages cookie information, and the page you requested. MavenPages uses this traffic data to help diagnose problems with its servers, analyze trends and administer the website.

    MavenPages may also add on any page display the total counts that page has been viewed. This includes member profile pages.
    Social sharing of data: MavenPages will allow other users to browse profiles that you have rated, reviewed or otherwise have contributed information. MavenPages may choose to post this data on other site features in the future.
    Profile information: when listed in our directory, MavenPages allows other users to browse your full name, location, and other professional profile information, within your member profile should you provide this information.

  3. Member Submitted Information: A profile may be created by an individual other than you, or by MavenPages, if you are nominated and listed as an expert in our directory. The nature of this data is professional profile information and is information that is generally publicly available on the internet on websites such as your corporate website. Syndication: MavenPages may allow for the RSS syndication of all of its public content within the website.

Many companies offer programs that help you to visit websites anonymously. While MavenPages will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these programs are available.


What About Cookies?

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in our website are visited and by how many people. MavenPages cookies do not collect personal information, and we do not combine information collected through cookies with other personal information to tell us who you are or what your screen name or email address is.

The "help" portion of the toolbar on the majority of browsers will direct you on how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to command the browser to tell you when you receive a new cookie, or how to fully disable cookies. We strongly recommend that you leave the cookies activated, however, because cookies enable you to take advantage of some of MavenPages's most attractive features.

Some of our business partners may use cookies on our website (for example, advertisers). However, we have no access to or control over these cookies.


Will MavenPages Share Any of the Information it Receives?

Information about our users is an integral part of our business. We make certain parts of your profile publicly available as part of our service of listing you in our professional directory. We neither rent nor sell your secure information, such as password or credit card, to anyone. We share your secure information only as described below. Credit Card: We do not store your credit card information on our servers. Credit card information is processed via secure 3rd party providers such as Stripe, BrainTree/PayPal. Business Transfers: In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if MavenPages, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred. Protection of MavenPages and Others: We may release personal information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with that law; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of MavenPages, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. With Your Consent: Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your personal information may be shared with third parties or used for a purpose incompatible with the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected, and you will be able to prevent the sharing of this information by opting out.


Is Information About Me Secure?

Your MavenPages secure account information is protected by a password for your privacy and security. You need to work to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer by logging off once you have finished using a shared computer.

Only employees who need personal information to perform a specific job (for example, a customer service representative) are granted access to it. All of our employees are kept up to date on our privacy and security practices.


What Information Can I Access?

You can access your personal information on our website in order to correct, amend, or delete information that is inaccurate. If your profile is submitted by another member other than yourself, you may claim that profile by using our claim form on the registration page utilizing your corporate email. If your email is not a match please send a request to claim your profile to support@mavenpages.com. If members have written reviews about your profile you may not be able to delete your basic profile information such as name, company and or location, etc.


What Choices Do I Have?

As stated previously, you can always opt not to disclose information, but then you may be unable to use certain features on our website, such as creating a profile listing.

You are able to add or update certain information on pages, such as those listed in the "What Personal Information About Users Does MavenPages Collect?" section above. When you update information, however, we often maintain a copy of the unrevised information in our records.

You may request deletion of your MavenPages account by sending an email to support@mavenpages.com. This removes all of your past MavenPages usage from public view.

As explained earlier, the "help" portion of the toolbar on the majority of browsers will direct you on how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to command the browser to tell you when you receive a new cookie, or how to fully disable cookies. Please note, however, that if your browser does not accept cookies, you will not be able to take advantage of some of our attractive features.


Can Children Use MavenPages's Services?
