WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
Personal information may be collected in a number of ways when you visit our Site. We may collect certain information you voluntarily provide to us which may contain or may be tied to personal information. For example, we may collect information, such as your name, postal address, e-mail address, phone number, and other contact and demographic information such as age, gender, zip code, health-related information, interests and preferences. We may collect this and other information when you create a profile, register for our newsletter(s), leave comments or post content, respond to surveys, participate in promotions or contact us by e mail or other means for any reason.
We may also collect “aggregate” information, which is data we collect about the use of the Site or about a group or category of products, services or users, from which individual identities or other personal information has been removed. In other words, information about how you use a service may be collected and combined with information about how others use the same service. Aggregate data helps us understand trends and our users’ needs so that we can better consider new features or otherwise tailor our Site. This policy in no way restricts or limits our collection and use of aggregate information.
As is true of most web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to improve services we offer you, to improve marketing, analytics, and to improve site functionality.
User Access and Choice
Upon request, Inclusion will provide you with information about whether we hold any of your personal information. If your personal information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may correct, update, amend, delete/remove, ask to have it removed from a public forum, directory or testimonial on our site or deactivate it by making the change on our member information page or by emailing our Customer Support at [email protected] or by contacting us by telephone or postal mail at the contact information listed below. We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe.
THIRD PARTY ADVERTISEMENTS.
We partner with third parties to either display advertising on our Web site or to manage our advertising on other sites.

You will continue to receive generic ads.
THIRD PARTY COMMENT SYSTEM.
HOW DO WE USE THE PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT?

SHARING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION.
Except as described below, we will not share or sell your personally identifying information with third parties for their own use without your consent. We will share your personal information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this privacy statement. If you choose to let us share your personal information with third parties, we are not responsible for the actions of such third party companies, nor are we responsible for any additional information you provide directly to these or to any other third parties.
You understand that when you use the Inclusion services, certain information you post on publicly available portions of the Site may be shared with other users and posted on other portions of the Site, including without limitation your comments to articles, name, profile details, images, and messages to other users on the Site. Your use of the Inclusion services constitutes your consent to share this information in such manner and all such sharing of information is done at your own risk. Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personal information when posting comments or other information or content to the Site or through the Inclusion service, this information may become publicly available and may be collected and used by others. We recommend that you be cautious in giving out personal information to others in public online forums. To request removal of your personal information from our public online forums, contact us at [email protected] In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personal information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.
We may also share personal information with third party vendors, consultants and other service providers who are engaged by or working with us in connection with the operation of the Site and the Inclusion services and who need access to such information to carry out their work for us. For example, we use the services of a third party verification company to ensure that the names and emails submitted to us are valid. Our vendors, consultants and service providers are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us. Transfers to subsequent third parties are covered by the provisions in this Policy regarding notice and choice and the service agreements with our Clients.
In certain situations, Inclusion may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
In addition, we may disclose personal information in the good faith belief that we are lawfully authorized or required to do so, or that doing so is reasonably necessary or appropriate to comply with the law or with legal process or authorities, respond to lawful requests, any claims, or to protect the rights, property or safety of Inclusion, our users, our employees or the public, including without limitation to protect Inclusion or our users from fraudulent, abusive, inappropriate or unlawful use of our Site or the Inclusion services. Information about our users, including personal information, may also be disclosed or transferred as part of, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, financing or acquisition, an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership or in any other situation where personal information may be transferred as one of the business assets of Inclusion. You will be notified via a prominent notice on our Web site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.
SOCIAL MEDIA (FEATURES) AND WIDGETS:
FACEBOOK CONNECT OR OTHER OPENID PROVIDER.
You can log in to our site using sign-in services such as Facebook Connect or an Open ID provider. These services will authenticate your identity and provide you the option to share certain personal information with us such as your name and email address to pre-populate our sign up form. Services like Facebook Connect give you the option to post information about your activities on this Web site to your profile page to share with others within your network.
WHAT STEPS DO WE TAKE TO PROTECT PERSONAL INFORMATION ONLINE?
We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. We have worked to put into place reasonable security measures in an effort to protect personal information while it is under our control. Please be aware, however, that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. You should also note that e-mail is not secure, and you should not send any confidential or sensitive information to us via an unsecured e-mail. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. To protect the confidentiality of personal information, you must keep any password used on the Site confidential and not disclose it to any other person. You are responsible for all uses of our Site by any person using your password. Please advise us immediately if you believe your password has been misused. If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can contact us at [email protected]
WHAT CHOICES DO YOU HAVE REGARDING THE USE OF YOUR INFORMATION?
We will send you news, updates and information via e-mail. You may choose to not receive promotional communications at any time by notifying Inclusion either through the opt-out link in the footer of every e-mail, by managing your subscriptions through the web site (www.incl.us/subscriptions.aspx) or by calling customer service at (800) 637-9382. Please note, however, that you may not “opt-out” of receiving service related communications such as account-related e-mails from Inclusion. When you register to receive newsletters from Inclusion, you are also registering to receive information or offers from us on behalf of our advertising partners. If you do not desire to receive such offers or information, you may opt out at any time. To do so, simply go to “Manage Your Newsletters”, where you may modify the information or offers you receive.
LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES.
USER GENERATED CONTENT.
As part of our Site, we may from time to time offer users the opportunity to express their thoughts, opinions and ideas via user generated content forums such as blogs, message boards and/or chat rooms. We make no commitment to monitor these user generated content forums and are not responsible in any way for the content contained therein. Furthermore, any information which may be posted on a user generated content forum or which you may post on a user generated content forum, including your personal information, by definition will be publicly disclosed and available to all users of that forum, and is therefore no longer private. As a consequence, you cannot and should not have any expectation of privacy relative to that information. By using the user generated content forums, you agree that Inclusion is not responsible for any information that you disclose or communicate online in such user generated content forums, and any disclosures you make are at your own risk. Furthermore, you acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for any of the user generated content on such forums and that such content does not represent the opinion or views of Inclusion. We reserve the right to republish your postings (in whole or part), taken from the forums, anywhere on our Site, or elsewhere on the Web in any format or any other medium, including print and radio, without prior notice or your express consent. To request the removal of your personal information, please review the section below.
