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, The Schumin Web Transit Center, 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.

  • Contact Information 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 Web site.  These forms are managed by Bravenet, which maintains its own privacy policy.  Under normal circumstances, information received by The Schumin Web from these forms is used for purposes of sending a response to messages received, and is not disclosed to any third party except where required by law.  Your IP address is transmitted in a human-readable form with your message.  The one exception to this policy is for communications determined at the sole discretion of The Schumin Web to be “hate mail”.  If hate mail is received, we reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to quote you publicly and attribute it to you by name, IP address, and any other information that you may have provided (see example).

  • 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.

  • Licensing: Original content on The Schumin Web, including on discussion forums, with the exception of The Schumin Web and related logos, is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 United States License.  Users of the site are permitted to copy, distribute, display, and perform content from this site, to make derivative works, and to make commercial use of the work, provided that any uses identify The Schumin Web as the original content provider, and provided that any works derived from content on The Schumin Web are licensed under the same license or an equivalent license.  Entities wishing to use original content from The Schumin Web should also take a moment to read the page about Content Reuse.
