The City2.0 site is not intended for children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly allow anyone under the age of 13 to register for the site or provide us with any personally identifying information. If you are under the age of 13, please do not attempt to register to use this site. Because of the nature of this site, activities involving children, or a specific child, may be the topics of postings and comments on the City2.0 site, and photographs posted on the site by parents or other community members may include images of children. Please respect the privacy of these children by not providing personal information about any child on the site unless you are the child’s parent or guardian or have the explicit consent of the child, parent or guardian. In any event, please do not use the site to demean children or a specific child in any way.
Information We Collect and How We Use It
The information we collect falls into two categories: (1) personal information that you provide to us when you register to use our Web site, and (2) certain anonymous information that we collect as you navigate through our site. Below is a description of each type of information we collect and how we use it:
Anyone may visit our site and view its contents, but only registered users may post information or comments or use certain City2.0 services. We require users to register to encourage responsible and courteous conduct while participating in the City2.0 community. In our registration process, we require you to provide your name, e-mail address, zip code and age. We use this information to create a unique registration profile for you, to communicate with you regarding your registration, and to verify that you are not under the age of 13. We also may ask you to provide, at your option, your address and certain demographic information. This information will help us to better understand our audience, but is not required as a condition of registering; you may decline to provide any or all such optional information. Once you register with City2.0 and sign in to our site, you are not anonymous to us, though you may use an assumed member name when posting to the site if you’d prefer to remain anonymous to other members of the City2.0 community and other visitors to the site.
We require you to provide your valid e-mail address as part of the registration process. When you register with our site, we will send you an e-mail confirming your registration. We may use your e-mail address to send you administrative e-mails from time to time containing announcements and communications regarding the City2.0 service. If you do not wish to receive administrative e-mails from us, please do not register to use our site. You also may elect to receive regular newsletters or information updates from us. Should you do so, we will not share your e-mail address with any third parties. Our newsletters and information updates will be sent to you only if you request them on an opt-in basis. Once you have opted in to receive such e-mails, you may unsubscribe from them at any time by following the simple instructions included in each e-mail.
- Browser-Level Information
As a general policy no personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, or e-mail address, is automatically collected from your visit to our website. However, certain non-personal information is recorded by the standard operation of our web server. Information such as the type of browser being used, its operating system, and your IP address is gathered in order to enhance your online experience.
- Reminder About Information Posted on the Site
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily make your personal information available for viewing by third parties on our site – for example, in a post, comment, event listing, or on other areas of our site – that information can be seen, collected and used by anyone who visits the site. We cannot control and therefore cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of such information. Please respect the privacy of others by not posting their personal information on our site without their permission.
Disclosure of Information
Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. City2.0 will not rent, sell, or share your personal information with unaffiliated companies or people except when we have your permission, or as follows:
- We may disclose your personal information to trusted partners who work on behalf of City2.0 under confidentiality agreements. These companies may use your personal information to help us serve you. However, these companies are not allowed to share this information or to use it for their own purposes.
- We may disclose your personal information when release is appropriate to comply with law, to enforce our Terms of Service Agreement, or to protect the rights, property or safety of members of the City2.0 community, other visitors to our site, our advertisers and other customers, the public, or City2.0 and its employees.
- As our business grows, we may buy or sell various assets. In the event that City2.0 or some or all of our assets are acquired by another company, information about our users may be among the transferred assets.
Links To Other Sites
Archiving and Storage
All postings to the City2.0 site may be stored in our database, even after deletion from the site. Our web logs and other records may be stored indefinitely. In addition, search engines and other sites not affiliated with City2.0 may cache or archive postings from our site, and may make such postings available for viewing on their sites. (For example, some search engines take a snapshot of each web page examined by the search engine as it crawls the web, and may cache these pages as a backup in case the original page is unavailable. Search engine users can view the cached pages simply by clicking on the “cached” link.) We have no control over this.
City2.0 has taken steps to protect the confidentiality of the personal information it collects from members of the City2.0 community. Information we gather on our site is stored within City2.0-controlled databases (or databases hosted on our behalf) on servers maintained in protected environments, and we limit access to your personal information to City2.0 employees who we believe need to see that information to provide you with services or otherwise do their jobs. However, no physical or electronic security system is impenetrable, and we cannot guarantee the security of our servers or databases, nor can we guarantee that the information that you supply to us won't be intercepted during transmission over the Internet. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your City2.0 account, especially on a shared computer, by logging out when you are finished using our site.
If you see something on City2.0 that you consider inappropriate or abusive, please let us know immediately. We will review the content to see if it meets our guidelines.
