Rodeoz.com Privacy Policy and Information Security



Your privacy is important to Rodeoz ("Rodeoz", "we" or "us").


This Privacy and Information Security Policy ("the Policy") discusses the personally identifying information ("Personal Info") that could be collected when you use our website http://www.rodeoz.com (the "Site") or any other services we provide on or through the Site (together with the Site, the "Service").


This Policy is part of and incorporated into the Rodeoz Terms of Use (collectively, the "Terms").


Policy highlights:


We will not collect Personal Info about you through the Service unless you disclose such information to us;


We will not knowingly disclose Personal Info about you that we collect through the Service to third parties, except under the limited circumstances described in this Policy; and We will take reasonable steps to protect the security of any Personal Info we collect from you through the Service.


These Policy highlights are qualified by full reference to the terms and conditions described below.

By providing personal info or other information to us or by using our service, you agree to this policy and the practices described in the policy.


    Information in Public Areas of the Site:

    Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily provide information in public areas of the Service, such as the user profile pages or forums, that information can be viewed and possibly used by others. We therefore advise visitors not to disclose contact information, including phone number, email address or street address (within these public areas) that they do not wish to share. We are not responsible for Personal Info you choose to submit in these public areas. Also, we may highlight content you post to the public areas of the Site, such as by featuring your content on the Site's home page.


    Cookies. We have to use them to know how we're doing.

    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. We use persistent, identifying cookies to remember your information and to link your activities to you. While you can take steps to warn off, block or disable cookies, if you do, the Service may not function and appear as we have designed it. Nonetheless, if you want to take these steps, you can do so by following the instructions associated with your browser. Our cookies do not collect Personal Info that you provide to us during the registration process, but they do collect other information such as the following:

    • the domain name and host from which you access the Internet and the Internet address of the site from which you direct-linked to ours;
    • the date and time you access the Site and pages you visit;
    • your computer's IP address and information about its operating system, platform and the Web browser type and version you use;
    • demographic and other non-personally identifiable profile information about you; and
    • information to combat fraud or misuse.


    Collection of Information by Third Parties:

    Our Site may include third-party advertising, links to other websites, and other content from third party businesses. The content posted by these parties will be reasonably identifiable as coming from a third party. We do not provide any Personal Info to these advertisers, third-party websites, or other businesses, although on occasion we may mutually share non-personally identifiable (e.g., demographic) information to facilitate delivery of relevant advertisements. These third-party websites, businesses, and advertisers, or advertising companies working on their behalf, sometimes use technology to deliver (or "serve") the advertisements that appear on our Site directly to your browser. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use cookies, JavaScript, web beacons (also known as action tags or single-pixel gifs), and other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize or optimize advertising content. We do not have access to or control over cookies or other technologies that they may use, and the information practices of these advertisers and third-party websites or businesses are not covered by this Policy but are covered by their respective privacy politices.


    Promotions and Contests:

    From time to time, we may host a promotion, sweepstake, or contest on the Service. You may be asked to provide personal information or permit the transfer to a third party of your personal information in connection with such promotion or contest. It will be disclosed at the point of collection or transfer who is collecting or transferring the information and whose privacy statement applies, and it will be your choice whether or not you wish to permit such transfer or collection of personal information to a third party.


    Use of Personal Info:

    We use your Personal Info for purposes such as responding to your requests, monitoring and providing the Service, maintaining your Rodeoz account, providing you with advertising and non-advertising content that we believe would be of interest to you, enforcing our rights and the rights of third parties, and investigating and ensuring compliance with the Rodeoz Terms of Use. We also may use your Personal Info to contact you regarding your account, such as to inform you that you have received an email from another Rodeoz member, or to forward user comments to you about the content that you have posted. We may also email Rodeoz newsletters, and similar communications about the Service.


    Use of Other Information:

    We use non-Personal Info about our users for purposes such as measuring the number of visitors to sections of our Site, making the Service more useful to visitors and delivering targeted advertising and non-advertising content. We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the Site, track a user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate, non-personally identifiable use.


    Retention of Information:

    We retain information for as long as required, allowed or we believe it useful, but do not undertake retention obligations. We may dispose of information in our discretion without notice, subject to applicable law that specifically requires the handling or retention of information. You must keep your own, separate back-up records.


    Advertisers and Others:

    We share non-personally identifiable information with advertisers, service providers, and other persons with whom we conduct business. Similarly, these advertisers, service providers, and other persons may share with us non-Personal Info about you that they have independently gathered or acquired.


    Compliance and Safety:

    • comply with applicable law, and to respond to legal process, including subpoenas, search warrants and court orders, and to respond to or otherwise address written complaints of copyright infringement;
    • make disclosures under programs intended to prevent potential crimes or investigate persons;
    • enforce or apply agreements, including the Terms; or
    • protect the rights, property, or safety of Rodeoz, our users, or others, including exchanging information with other companies for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.


    Your Obligations.

    You must protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Please sign off when finished using a shared computer. Your emails to us are not necessarily secure against interception so do not include sensitive information in them. We generally will not ask for passwords in an email and you should assume that if you get such a request, it might be fraudulent. You must do what you reasonably can to ensure your security.


    Our Security Measures:

    We take reasonable precautions to protect the security of our users' information. We have physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to help safeguard, prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use your information. However, neither people nor security systems are foolproof, including encryption systems. In addition, people can commit intentional crimes, make mistakes or fail to follow policies. Therefore, while we use reasonable efforts to protect your Personal Info, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If applicable law imposes any non-disclaimable duty to protect your Personal Info, you agree that intentional misconduct will be the standards used to measure our compliance with that duty.


Our Site contains links to other sites.

We are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Site and to read the privacy statements of every web site that collects your personally identifiable information. This Policy applies only to information collected by the Service.


    Privacy Concerns.

    Your use of the Service and any dispute over privacy is subject to the Rodeoz Terms of Use. If you have any concern about privacy at Rodeoz, please email us a thorough description and we will try to resolve it.


    Notice Required by Law:

    In those jurisdictions that permit email notice, if we are required to disclose or provide notice of invasion of certain security systems, we will do so by email to the most current email address provided by you to us. It is critical that you keep your email contact information correct and updated with Rodeoz at all times.



    We reserve the right to change our Policy at any time. Non-material changes and clarifications will take effect immediately. If we make non-material changes, we will indicate at the top of this page the revised Policy's new effective date. If we make material changes, we will notify you by email or through notice on the home page of the Site, and will also indicate so at the top of this page. The material changes will take effect 30 days after such notice. We encourage you to refer to this Policy at least every 30 days to check for material changes to this Policy.
