Your Privacy Is Important To Us

We’re committed to providing an enjoyable and safe blog experience, and to this end we offer this privacy policy statement

The Information We Collect and How We Use It

To post comments to Galactic Watercooler, we require you to provide a valid email address. We use this information to help reduce comment spam.  We also collect email information when you utilize our “send this post by email” functionality.  Your email address is not displayed publicly on Galactic Watercooler, and we agree that we’ll never share your email with a third party.  We do, from time to time, contact you personally via the email you provide to ask questions about your post or to notify you should you win any comment-based prizes.  We reserve the right to contact you personally at some point in the future to notify you of changes to the site or this policy.  If at any time you’d like us to remove your email address from our list for notification purposes, contact us.

We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on Galactic Watercooler, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.  Our traffic reporting software records IP addresses, internet service provider information, referrer strings, browser types, and the date and time pages are loaded.

Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

Ownership of Information

Postlab Media, Inc. is the sole owner of any information collected via Galactic Watercooler. (Postlab Media, Inc. is the business entity which owns Galactic Watercooler.)

Comments

Galactic Watercooler’s posts each contain comment functionality.  We do not actively monitor these comments, and the information in them is for entertainment purposes only.  If we’re alerted to something we deem inappropriate in any way, we may delete it at our discretion. We do not, however, agree to automatically delete anything you post then later wish you hadn’t posted. Think before you post.

Cookies/Third Party Cookies

Some of our advertisers use cookies in order to determine the number of times you view a specific advertisement. Galactica Watercooler does not receive any of this data. We do not currently assign cookies via Galactic Watercooler, though we reserve the right to utilize cookies in the future to save your user preferences. Should we choose to do so, we will not require the use of cookies to view Galactic Watercooler.

Disclosure As Required By Law

Galactic Watercooler will make every effort to preserve user privacy but may disclose information when required by law.

Our Commitment to Children’s Privacy

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason we never collect or maintain information from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
