Head2Head Reviews, Inc. Privacy Policy

Last Updated on
February 13, 2009.
 
To ensure that using any online property owned or operated by Head2Head Reviews, Inc. will not infringe upon your privacy and that our primary purpose for presenting all site content and services (newsletters, opt-in announcement lists, contest participation lists) is to make your life more enjoyable, we have created a Privacy Policy to provide you with specific guidelines about the types of information we collect and how it is used. 
The Information We Collect:
 
We collect two types of information from our site users. The first type of information is specific to your person. We will collect this information only when you provide it voluntarily by registering for one of our services.
 
In the event that you choose to register for certain services associated with H2HReviews.com, we may require you to enter personally identifiable information such as a unique e-mail address, further contact information, and/or demographic information such as age, sex, job title (optional), or house hold income (optional).
 
In the event that we host a contest, sweepstakes or special promotion, present a user survey, or host special events that require personal information to register, the information you provide may be shared, but only in aggregate form. In any case in which personal information might be shared with third parties, you would be notified during registration or data collection and would have the opportunity to decline participation.
 
The second type of information we collect is information about you that is not personally identifiable. This includes tracking information such as domain names and IP (Internet Protocol) addresses, neither of which reveal anything personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our sites and services. This information is used internally to examine our traffic in aggregate, and to monitor for any misuse within our sites and services. In the case of misuse, we will share this information with law enforcement. This information is not collected to analyze or evaluate individually specific information. E-mail addresses are not automatically recorded by our servers.
 
Cookies Anyone?
 
It is highly likely that Head2Head Reviews, Inc. on behalf of both H2HReviews.com and our advertising partners may send a "cookie" to your computer. A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your Internet browser from a Web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. Cookies are used to identify which areas of the H2HReviews.com Web site you have visited or customized. This would allow us to make those pages readily available to you on your next visit to the site. Our advertising partners may also use cookies to ascertain how many times you have seen their advertisements. It is likely that our advertising partners will use this information to better personalize advertising content so that ad messaging is more contextually relevant to your interests based on the pages you have visited. As a user, you do have the choice to voluntarily accept or reject cookies by changing the settings of your Internet browser. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies, or enable your browser to show you when a cookie is being sent. In the event that you choose to disable cookies, it is possible that you will then not be able to experience all of the Web site’s built-in user-friendly features, which could diminish your browsing experience. A cookie will not damage your computer nor can it retrieve or read any information from your computer’s hard disk. 
 
Usage of Single-Pixel .Gifs
 
Head2Head Reviews, Inc., its third party service providers and its advertising partners may use single-pixel .gif images, also known as “Web bugs” or “Web beacons,” to monitor total number of visits, visitors, page views and other general statistical information. H2HReviews.com will use single-pixel .gifs to track and analyze aggregate usage information and Web behavior, non-personally identifiable information, to enable us to continuously improve upon the quality of our sites and services. No personal information is gathered through the use of these images. It is possible that our advertising partners and third party providers may use single-pixel .gifs that can track personal information from cookies that may have been previously placed on a user's computer. An example of this could arise in the case that we partner with a third party you have previously registered with, such as a social media site like Facebook or MySpace.
 
Logging IP Addresses:
 
Head2Head Reviews, Inc. does log IP addresses, i.e., the location of the user’s computer on the Internet, for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes. We do use the IP address log in an aggregate fashion to track access to our site.
 
Our E-mail Policy
 
Head2Head Reviews, Inc. is fully compliant with the federal CAN-SPAM Act of 2003. We will not share, sell, rent, swap or authorize any third party to use your e-mail address without your permission.

Head2Head Reviews, Inc. does reserve the right to send you e-mail alerts relating to your account status and membership services information.

You may choose to receive e-mail announcements/newsletters in a text or HTML format. It is likely that we will place a one-pixel .gif in all HTML-based newsletters to determine whether or not readers have viewed or opened the newsletter. This process will not interfere with, or leave any information on your hard disk, nor will any information be collected from your computer.
 
There may be times when Head2Head Reviews, Inc. e-mails you messages promoting products and services that may be of interest.It is also possible that e-mails will be sent to you directly from our third party partners. In the event that you are not interested in receiving e-mails moving forward, you can opt out on the H2HReviews.com Web site or follow the unsubscribe instructions located on the bottom of the undesired e-mail.
 
Periodically, we may request your participation in our user surveys via e-mail. The primary focus of these surveys is to obtain feedback on H2HReviews.com and our other services in the effort to improve your experience with our offerings.  No personal information from these surveys will be shared with third parties but the survey data will be presented to third parties in aggregate.
 
Please note that any information you send us via e-mail may not be secure or encrypted and thus may be available to others. We recommend that you exercise caution when deciding to disclose any personal or confidential information in an e-mail. We will respond directly to your questions or comments by replying to the e-mail address from which it has originated.
 
Our e-mails will sometimes provide you the opportunity to forward a message or announcement to a friend. Any addresses you input will be saved for your convenience in the event that you would like to forward additional articles to the same e-mail address in the future. These addresses will not be shared with third parties.
 
How We Use the Information We Collect.
 
Statistical Analysis
 
Our primary reason for collecting data is to perform statistical, demographic and marketing analyses of subscribers. In this way, we strive to obtain a better understanding with respect to who, in aggregate, is using the site, and how this use advances product and service development. This information is also used to provide advertisers with general information about the nature of our subscriber base in an effort to ensure that their advertising message is more contextually related to individuals who frequent specific areas of the site or use specific services. Using the collected data in aggregate should enhance the user’s experience in the sense that advertising units should have greater relevance to the user.
