What Information Do We Collect?

Profile Information:
We collect profile information when you provide it to us when you register on one of our sites. Several of the services that we offer on our sites may require registration as a condition of use. Once you register with one of the Flying Pig Ventures network of sites, you are no longer anonymous to us.

When you view the Sites, a small file called a cookie is placed on your hard drive. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. (However, by not accepting cookies, some of our web pages may not display properly or you may not be permitted to access certain information.) If you register as a member of Flying Pig Ventures by providing your name, email address and other contact details (a “Member”), Flying Pig Ventures will use cookies to authenticate your identity when you visit the Sites and to personalize your user experience, such as by displaying your username when you log on. In all cases, Flying Pig Ventures uses cookies to obtain anonymous information such as the number of visits to the Sites that a certain user has made, the movement of the user through the Sites, and the searches that the user conducts on the Sites.

Clear GIFs & Servers:
We use electronic images known as “clear GIFs” — sometimes called
“transparent GIFs”, “Web bugs”, “pixel tags” or “beacons” — that allow
us to track general user traffic patterns (and not personally
identifiable information). Flying Pig Ventures also automatically
receives and records information from our servers and from your
browser, including your IP address, the time, and information about the
page you requested (though these automatic updates do not include your
name or other profile information).

Subscriber Information:
If you subscribe to an email newsletter and become a “Subscriber”,
Flying Pig Ventures collects your email address, password and areas of
interest. If you register as a Member, Flying Pig Ventures may collect
additional information like your name (“Member Details”).

Third Party Personal Information:
The Sites include a “ShareThis” feature, which allows a user to email
an article to a third party or post it to social networking sites. The
email addresses of third parties to whom such articles or documents are
emailed are the only third party personal information collected at the
Sites. More information on the ShareThis plug-in can be found on their
site. [ShareThis Privacy Policy]

How Do We Use The Information We Collect?

tailor our content to visitor interests and helps our advertisers
better understand the audience they are reaching. Most of Flying Pig
Ventures is free and is supported by paid content and sponsorships from
our advertisers.

Flying Pig Ventures uses persistent cookies to link Members to their
registration information, which allows our system to confirm a user’s
identity and access level on the Sites. Flying Pig Ventures also uses
that information to track service selections, and save passwords so
that Members do not have to log in each time they visit the Sites.

Clear GIFs & Servers: We use these tracking technologies for a variety of purposes, including:

- Keeping count of return visits to our site or our partners’ sites

- Accumulating and reporting anonymous, aggregate, statistical information on Web site
and content usage to our partners and customers

- Determining which features visitors like best to help us improve our content and
site, personalize your user experience, and measure overall site

Member Information:
We may send general promotional and marketing materials to our Members,
including marketing research surveys. We also use Member Details and
Supplementary Information in aggregated form to understand our customer

Third Party Personal Information:
We use third party email addresses provided for the “ShareThis” feature
only for the purpose of sending the article or document to the third
party, and for no other purpose.

Sharing Information:
Flying Pig Ventures may share profile information collected only when
we have your consent to share the information or in other cases
outlined in this policy, like a business transfer.

What Information Do We Disclose to Third Parties?

Access and Updating of Information

The instructions to review, amend, or delete your information may be found
in the edit profile area on any of our sites. Users may change
information at any time and as often as necessary.


Registration Password: Your Profile Information is password-protected to control access to this profile information by third parties.

We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. Flying Pig
Ventures never asks for passwords in unsolicited phone calls or
unsolicited emails. Remember to sign out and close your browser window

Business Transfers:
We are always seeking to improve our network of Web sites and our
business. If all or part of Flying Pig Ventures is sold, merged or
otherwise transferred to another entity, the Profile Information and
Activity Data that you have provided to us may be transferred as part
of that transaction. In these circumstances, Flying Pig Ventures will
require that the profile information be used by its successor in a
manner that is consistent with the Flying Pig Ventures Privacy Policy
in effect at the time Flying Pig Ventures received the information.

Flying Pig Ventures may modify or amend this policy from time to time.
If we make any material changes in the way in which your profile
information is collected, used or transferred, we will notify you of
these changes on our site(s) or by e-mail and provide a link to the new
privacy statement. If you object to any of the changes, you can have us
delete your information from our database.

During the registration process, we also allow users the option to opt-out of receiving our electronic newsletters or those of third parties.

Users who opt-in may also remove themselves from emailing lists at any time through the edit profile pages or by following the instructions at the end of any email they received from the Flying Pig Ventures family of
