What we may collect
INKspire uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”).
Google Analytics analyze how users use INKspire. The information generated about your use (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of INKspire, compiling reports on activity for its staff and providing other services relating to web page activity and internet usage.
Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.
How we use the information that we collect
We may use the information that we collect to send you e-mail communications, such as editorial updates, information about your account or changes to the site, and promotional messages about our own or our marketing partners’ products and services. If you signed up for one of our email newsletters, we also will send you the newsletter that you requested. We may occasionally need to email you some administrative information, tell you something important about your account or changes to our services, or update you on new policies.
We may use the information that we collect to fulfill your requests for products, services, and information. For example, we may use your contact information to respond to your customer service requests or to enable you to participate in features on the Site such as surveys, polls, and discussion boards.
Public user content
INKspire is intended for public publishing, hence whatever you share through INKspire (including personal information on your profile) is public. Although we provide tools that let you write and edit draft content prior to publication, you should assume that any content you provide us may become publicly accessible.
Content published and shared through INKspire is publicly accessible, which means that everyone, including search engines, will be able to see it. This content may also be copied and shared by others throughout the Internet, including through features native to INKspire, such as commenting and embedding.
You are free to remove published content from your account, or even disable your account entirely by emailing us at [email protected]. However, because of the fundamentally open nature of the Internet, the strong possibility that others will comment on or embed your content, and technological limitations inherent to INKspire Services, copies of your content may exist elsewhere indefinitely, including in our systems.
We use encryption (HTTPS/TLS) to protect data transmitted to and from our site. However, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure, so we can’t guarantee the absolute security of this data. You use the service at your own risk, and you are responsible for taking reasonable measures to secure your account (such as keeping your password secret).
We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we learn that we have collected any personal information from a child under the age of 13 without verifiable parental consent, we will delete that information from our database. If you believe that we may have collected information from a child under 13, please contact us at [email protected].
Changes to this Policy
INKspire may periodically update this policy. We will notify you about significant changes in the way we treat personal information by sending a notice to the primary email address specified in your INKspire account or by placing a prominent notice on our site before the changes take effect.
