Privacy Policy

Last updated: September 2012

Free Range Content, Inc. (“FRC”) respects your privacy. This Privacy Policy has been prepared to describe the information we collect about you, how it is used, and with whom we may or may not share it. This Privacy Policy covers the Free Range Content website, any content provided on the website or through the Repost.Us and Curate.Us websites, along with any and all related websites (including blogs), and any website registration, survey, and polling pages that we may create for other entities.

This Privacy Policy applies to FRC services only, and does not apply to any sites not controlled by FRC that may link to or from the FRC website, including content from third-party publishers or any third-party applications, gadgets, or clickable advertisements on our site. We are not responsible for the privacy policies of other such parties/sites. We do not exercise control over the sites that appear as search results when you use the FRC website, Repost.Us, and/or Curate.Us.

Registration

You must register for an account on this site in order to use certain of the site’s services, such as making your content available for syndication using the Repost.Us technology and platform, the Repost.Us or Curate.Us websites, and joining any networks, feeds, or other such distribution and/or consumption channels associated with the above-named technology and websites. By Registering with FRC, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy. You may browse the FRC sites (including Repost.Us and Curate.Us) and, where and when applicable, syndicate or embed content made available on these sites without registering, providing that you agree to the FRC Terms of Use, Content License Agreement, and all other terms, policies, and guidelines, which are incorporated here by reference.

Your Information and Our Use of It

In order to provide you with our technology, we may collect the following types of information:

The information we collect, as described above, will be used pursuant to this Privacy Policy, and for the following purposes: to improve our services and products; to develop new services; to ensure and improve the technical functionality of our websites and network; to protect your rights, FRC’s rights, and the rights of other FRC users; and to assist FRC in providing you with services (including customizing the content and advertising provided to you). FRC may also use your Personally Identifiable Information to make any filings or reports required by the IRS for tax purposes. If we use your Personally Identifiable Information in a manner different than the purposes for which it was collected, then we will ask for your consent prior to such use.

Third Party Publishers – Information Sharing

FRC operates Repost.Us, an instant syndication technology and platform that allows third-party publishers to automatically make their content available at all times to a broad range of syndicators, as well as the Repost.Us and Curate.Us sites, which facilitate instant syndication from third-party publishers. FRC may provide your Personally Identifiable Information at the request of such third-party publishers but only to the extent that you use such third-party publishers’ content. FRC employees and agents will not share your Personally Identifiable Information except as required to adequately provide services to such third-party publishers. FRC will not sell or provide any information to a third party, including other third-party publishers’ clients that may employ the services of FRC, other than as provided herein.

Blogs

FRC may host blogs or search field topics that gather visitor demographic data, including names and email addresses. FRC may use this information to provide updates about our websites and our services. FRC will not resell or provide this information to any third-party vendors.

Communications With Others

The FRC sites may allow you to contribute to one or more blogs or to communicate by means of online functions. Nothing requires you to disclose your identity to others. If you choose to disclose your identity to third parties using any site function or service, you do so at your own risk. FRC is not responsible for the privacy or security of any information, personal or otherwise, that you may choose to communicate or exchange using the functionality of the FRC technology or sites. Each item of information or any materials you contribute for such purposes is/are your “Public Content.” Public Content must be content and information that you have a right to disclose and transfer and must not violate any other person’s privacy or intellectual property rights.

Exceptions to this Privacy Policy

In certain circumstances, FRC may release the information it collects, for the following purposes:

FRC may also share non-personal information about you, in the aggregate, to third parties.

Information Security

FRC will use its best efforts to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of data, but cannot guarantee the security of its websites (FRC, Repost.Us, and Curate.Us) or technology (Repost.Us). In order to ensure the continued security of its websites and Repost.Us technology, FRC will need you to assist in preventing security breaches by committing to the following:

Special Provisions Applicable to Developers/Operators of Content or Websites

If you are a developer or operator of content or a website, the following additional terms may apply to you:

Our Policy Toward Children

The FRC website is intended for general audiences and is not directed to children younger than eighteen years of age in the United States. In connection with your use and access of FRC’s websites or Repost.Us technology, you represent that you are of contractual legal age under the laws of your jurisdiction. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of thirteen.

Your California Privacy Rights

Residents of the State of California, under the California Civil Code, have the right to request from companies conducting business in California a list of all third parties to which the Company has disclosed personal information during the preceding year for direct marketing purposes and a disclosure of the shared information. Alternatively, the law provides that if the company has a privacy policy that provides you with an “opt-out” choice for use of your personal information by third parties for marketing purposes, the Company may instead provide you with information on how to exercise your disclosure choice options.

The FRC sites qualify for the alternative option. Our privacy policy provides you with information on how you may opt-out from the use of your personal information by third parties for direct marketing purposes. Therefore, we are not required to maintain or disclose a list of the third parties that received your personal information during the preceding year for marketing purposes.

If you are a California resident and request information about how to exercise your third-party disclosure choices, send a request to the following email address privacy@freerangecontent.com.
