The Schumin Web

Privacy Statement

This privacy statement is designed to spell out what happens with any information that you or your computer leaves with me at The Schumin Web, College Life, and the Today’s Special site.

  • Advertising: The Schumin Web provides space to an outside company to run advertisements on the site.  Any cookies that may be used in relation to advertisements are handled by the advertiser.  The operators of The Schumin Web have no access to this information.

  • Commenting system: On certain pages, The Schumin Web utilizes a system that allows users to comment on content.  This system is managed by Disqus, which maintains its own privacy policy.  Additionally, if users decide to log into a third-party provider for user authentication, they should also refer to that provider’s privacy policies.  Users should be aware that information disclosed through the commenting system is visible to the public following moderator approval, and that users are solely responsible for the content that they post through the commenting system.

  • Email contact forms: All sections of The Schumin Web contain a link to a page providing contact information for the site.  A form is used in an attempt to limit the amount of unsolicited commercial email (spam) sent to the website.  These forms are managed by Bravenet, which maintains its own privacy policy.  Your IP address is transmitted in a human-readable form to the operators of the website with your message.  Nothing that users send through this contact form should be considered private.  Content submitted via this form may be used on the website or in other venues.

  • Social media: The Schumin Web operates pages on Facebook, Google+, the Twitter, and other social media sites.  Content posted there is subject to the privacy policies of those sites, but as a general rule of thumb, nothing that one posts to a social media site should ever be considered private.
  • COPPA: Content provided on The Schumin Web is not intended specifically for children.  We do, however, still strive to be in compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 at all times.  As such, children under the age of thirteen are not permitted to utilize services provided by The Schumin Web without consent from such child’s parent or legal guardian.

If you have any questions regarding the material in this privacy statement, please contact the Web site.
