Privacy Policy

Backlot D has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website: BacklotD.com

IP Address Collection

The Backlot D website logs IP addresses for systems administration purposes. IP addresses are logged to track a user’s session. This gives Backlot D an idea of which parts of our site users are visiting. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that a users session will be tracked, but the user will be anonymous.

Use of Cookies

A cookie is a small data file that certain websites write to your local storage when you visit them. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the site uses to track the pages you’ve visited. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can’t read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Backlot D uses cookies in only two instances – when you register as a Backlot D member (primarily to allow you to post comments on articles) and when you click an ad:

Registration: when you register, Backlot D uses a cookie to store a unique user ID.

We do not store any personal information about you in cookie form. We use this ID to identify you anonymously in our database and to track the pages you visit on our site. Cookies also enable you to enter Backlot D as a member without having to log on each time, and to visit member-restricted areas of the sites. We encrypt the user ID for added security.

Ads: Backlot D‘s advertising system delivers a one-time cookie to better track ad impressions and click rates.

You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use Backlot D.

Advertising

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Web site. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here.

Registration Information Usage

Our site’s registration form requires users to give us contact information (like their name and email address). We use customer contact information from the registration form to contact the user for administrative purposes only (i.e. updating their passwords, sending log-in information. etc.) or to inform them of winnings in contests or other such events they have voluntarily submitted themselves to.

Linking to Outside Content

This site contains links to other sites. Backlot D is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites.

User Generated Content

Presently Backlot D allows User Generated Content (UGC) in the form of comments trailing our article pages. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information.

Security

This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. We have gone to great efforts to ensure the security of this Web site and the server it resides on.

Children’s Guidlines

Backlot D does:

  1. NOT collect online contact information without prior parental consent or parental notification, which will include an opportunity for the parent to prevent use of the information and participation in the activity. Without prior parental consent, online information will only be used to respond directly to the child’s request and will not be used for other purposes without prior parental consent
  2. NOT collect personally identifiable offline contact information without prior parental consent
  3. NOT distribute to third parties any personally identifiable information with out prior parental consent
  4. NOT give the ability to publicly post or otherwise distribute personally identifiable contact information without prior parental consent
  5. NOT entice by the prospect of a special game, prize or other activity, to divulge more information than is needed to participate in the activity
  6. NOT condition a child’s participation in an acitivity on the disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary for the activity.

The only personal information required of a registering user on Backlot D is their e-mail address. This is used only for their participation in the UGC areas of Backlot D to receive e-mail notification of when a post or reply has been made to that individual user. This e-mail address is not given to third parties. When a user registers with Backlot D their individual IP address is collected as well. This information is only used to track that users session on the forums. Neither the e-mail address or IP address of a user under the age of 13 is disclosed to third-parties.

Backlot D does not currently, nor has any plans to, accept registrations from users under the age of 13.

If registration information is collected from a child under the age of 13, it will be deleted upon immediate notification by the legal guardian. Contact support@backlotd.com to have the information removed.
