Privacy Policy

Home Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At VisionCast Website Network we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We too don’t like services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  • In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals.

If you have questions about accessing or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.

It is VisionCast Website Network’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, VisionCast Website Network and our parent company, TheSiteEdge, LLC, collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. VisionCast Website Network’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how VisionCast Website Network’s visitors use its website. From time to time, VisionCast Website Network may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

VisionCast Website Network also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on VisionCast Website Network blogs. VisionCast Website Network only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to VisionCast Website Network’s websites choose to interact with VisionCast Website Network in ways that require VisionCast Website Network to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that VisionCast Website Network gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at VisionCast Website Network to provide a username and in some cases, an email address. Those who engage in transactions with VisionCast Website Network – by upgrading to a Pro account, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, VisionCast Website Network collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with VisionCast Website Network. VisionCast Website Network does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

VisionCast Website Network may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, VisionCast Website Network may monitor the most popular blogs on the VisionCast Website Network site or use spam screened by our filters to help identify spam. VisionCast Website Network may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, VisionCast Website Network does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

VisionCast Website Network uses Google Analytics for stat tracking including Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting. These stats are never shared, sold, or used for purposes other than to understand our visitors and improve our service.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

VisionCast Website Network discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on VisionCast Website Network’s behalf or to provide services available at VisionCast Website Network’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using VisionCast Website Network’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. VisionCast Website Network will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, VisionCast Website Network discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when VisionCast Website Network believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of VisionCast Website Network, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a VisionCast Website Network website and have supplied your email address, VisionCast Website Network may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with VisionCast Website Network and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. VisionCast Website Network takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
