Privacy Policy

This privacy policy covers the site http://www.racevine.com and related subdomains and sites (property of Racevine.com, Inc), collectively, "Racevine". Because we want to demonstrate our commitment to our users' privacy concerns, we disclose the following information.

By using Racevine, you agree to be bound by the terms of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with these terms, please do not use Racevine.

Information We Collect

If you create an account to take advantage of the full range of services offered on Racevine, we ask for and record personal information such as your name and email address. We use your email address to send you notifications related to the use of Racevine. Racevine also collects user submitted location information such as city, state or zip codes. In addition we collect user submitted photos, reviews, and ratings and opinions. Some information collected is not explicitly submitted by the user. For example, we log your browser-type related information, IP address, requested URL, referring URL, and timestamp.

How We Use Your Information

Information such as your full name, profile photo and any personally identifiable information you have included in your profile may be shown to friends or other users primarily in conjunction with content you have contributed. Your full name and email address may also be used when you send an email notification to a friend (such as in an invitation). We may also use your email address to send updates or news regarding our site, but you may choose not to receive email of this type by editing your preferences in your profile.

Racevine uses third-party advertising companies to display ads when you visit our Website. We do not share your personal information with third parties for marketing purposes. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.

Browser-type related information, IP address, requested URL, referring URL, and timestamp data help us diagnose problems with our server, administer Racevine, and otherwise provide the highest possible level of service to you. In addition, we use this information to perform statistical analyses of user behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the site and to inform advertisers of such information as well as the number of users that have been exposed to, or clicked on, their advertising banners or links.

Transfer of Information

Except as set forth in this Privacy Policy, we do not sell, rent, share, trade or give away any of your personal information. Racevine will disclose information about individual users to governmental or judicial authorities or law enforcement agencies, or to other individuals or entities in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal processes. Further, Racevine may share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities or suspected fraud, or to enforce or apply the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy.

We reserve the right to transfer your personal information in the event of a transfer of ownership of Racevine, such as an acquisition by or merger with another company. In such an event, Racevine will notify you before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Racevine will notify you when information about you may be provided to third parties in ways other than explained above, and you will have the option to prevent such information sharing.

Controlling Your Personal Information

You should be aware that when you voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information (e.g., name, e-mail address) via comments, reviews, postings, or in other areas of the Racevine network, that information, along with any substantive information disclosed in your communications can be collected and correlated and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of Racevine. Please do not post any personal information on the Racevine site or in other areas that you desire to keep private.

As a registered Racevine user, you can modify your personal information at any time by editing your "Profile". Also, upon your request, Racevine will use commercially reasonable efforts to functionally remove you and your personal information from the site; however, it may be impossible to remove your entry without some residual information being retained by Racevine. Registered users who wish to close their account should contact accounts@racevine.com.

Our website may contain links to third party websites to which we have no affiliation. Racevine does not share your personal information with those websites and is not responsible for their privacy practices. We urge that you read the privacy polices of those third party websites.

We use cookies to refine our site and simplify your user experience. For example, the use of cookies allows registered users to enter our site without explicitly typing in their email address and password every time. You should be aware that Racevine cannot control the use of cookies by advertisers or any information advertisers may gather from their use of cookies.

Security

Your Racevine account is password-protected. Racevine tries very hard to protect our users' information. We use industry standard measures to protect your information that is stored within our database. We limit the access to your information to those employees who need access to perform their job function such as our customer service personnel. If you have any questions about the security at our website, please contact us. Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Policy.

You hereby acknowledge that Racevine shall not be responsible for any intercepted information sent via the Internet, and you hereby release us from any and all claims arising out of or related to the use of intercepted information in any unauthorized manner.

Registered members can opt-out of personal messages initiated by friends and users, as well as opt-out of receiving notifications initiated by Racevine. Unregistered users that do not wish to receive emails may opt-out of receiving any communications by following the instructions contained in all emails.
