The Information We Collect

When you visit Dominating 12 you provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected by us and Web Site use information collected by us as you interact with our Web Site.

When you register with Dominating 12, you provide us with certain personal information, such as your name, your email address, your gender, age and any other personal or preference information that you post on the website.

When you enter Dominating 12, we collect your browser type and IP address. This information is gathered for all Dominating 12 visitors. In addition, we store certain information from your browser using "cookies." A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. We use session ID cookies to confirm that users are logged in. These cookies terminate once the user closes the browser. By default, we use a persistent cookie that stores your login ID (but not your password) to make it easier for you to login when you come back to Dominating 12. You can remove or block this cookie using the settings in your browser if you want to disable this convenience feature.

When you use Dominating 12, you may set up your personal profile, form relationships, send messages, perform searches and queries, form groups, set up events, add applications, and transmit information through various channels. We collect this information so that we can provide you the service and offer personalized features. In most cases, we retain it so that, for instance, you can return to view prior messages you have sent or easily see your friend list. When you update information, we usually keep a backup copy of the prior version for a reasonable period of time to enable reversion to the prior version of that information.

You post User Content (as defined in the Dominating 12 Terms of Use) on the Site at your own risk. Although we allow you to set privacy options that limit access to your pages, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of other Users with whom you may choose to share your pages and information. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that User Content you post on the Site will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Site. You understand and acknowledge that, even after removal, copies of User Content may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if other Users have copied or stored your User Content.

If you choose to use our invitation service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for information needed to send the invitation, such as your friend's email address. We will send your friend an email or instant message in your name inviting him or her to visit the site, and may send up to two reminders to them. Dominating 12 stores this information to send invitations and reminders, to register a friend connection if your invitation is accepted, to allow you to see invitations you have sent, and to track the success of our referral program. Your friend may contact us through the contact form to request that we remove this information from our database.

Dominating 12 may also collect information about you from other sources, such as newspapers, blogs, instant messaging services, and other users of the Dominating 12 service through the operation of the service (e.g., photo tags) in order to provide you with more useful information and a more personalized experience.

By using Dominating 12, you are consenting to have your personal data transferred to and processed in the United States.

Children Under Age 13

Dominating 12 does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to register for Dominating 12 or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 may provide any personal information to or on Dominating 12. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us through the contact form.

Children Between the Ages of 13 and 18

We recommend that minors 13 years of age or older ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet.

Use of Information Obtained by Dominating 12

When you register with Dominating 12, you create your own profile and privacy settings. Your profile information, as well as your name, email and photo, are displayed to people in the networks specified in your privacy settings to enable you to connect with people on Dominating 12. We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services offered by Dominating 12 that we think you may find valuable. Profile information is used by Dominating 12 primarily to be presented back to and edited by you when you access the service and to be presented to others permitted to view that information by your privacy settings. In some cases where your privacy settings permit it (e.g., posting to your wall), other Dominating 12 users may be able to supplement your profile. Dominating 12 may send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. For instance, if a friend sends you a new message or poke, or someone posts on your wall, you may receive an email alerting you to that fact. Generally, you may opt out of such emails from the Notifications page, though Dominating 12 reserves the right to send you notices about your account even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications. We may use information about you that we collect from other sources, including but not limited to newspapers and Internet sources such as blogs, instant messaging services, Dominating 12 Platform developers and other users of Dominating 12, to supplement your profile. Where such information is used, we generally allow you to specify in your privacy settings that you do not want this to be done or to take other actions that limit the connection of this information to your profile (e.g., removing photo tag links).

When you use Dominating 12, certain information you post or share with third parties (e.g., a friend or someone in your network), such as personal information, comments, messages, screenshots, videos or other information, may be shared with other users in accordance with the privacy settings you select. All such sharing of information is done at your own risk. Please keep in mind that if you disclose personal information in your profile or when posting comments, messages, screenshots, videos or other items , this information may become publicly available.

Third Party Advertising

Advertisements that appear on Dominating 12 are sometimes delivered (or "served") directly to users by third party advertisers. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. These third party advertisers may also download cookies to your computer, or use other technologies such as JavaScript and "web beacons" (also known as "1x1 gifs") to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. Doing this allows the advertising network to recognize your computer each time they send you an advertisement in order to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. In this way, they may compile information about where individuals using your computer or browser saw their advertisements and determine which advertisements are clicked. Dominating 12 does not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed by the third party advertisers. Third party advertisers have no access to your contact information stored on Dominating 12 unless you choose to share it with them.
