Thank you for visiting our privacy page! We think that it is very important for web users to understand the Privacy Policies of the sites they enjoy.
Socks Incorporated Privacy - General Information
Privacy on socksinc.com manifests itself in two different ways; on your Profile Page, and on individual pieces of uploaded content (YouTube Videos and photos)
Profile Page Privacy
When you create an account on socksinc.com you have the option of making that account's Profile Page open to the public or private only to you and socksinc.com’s moderators. A public profile page displays to others your sock's information, which is provided by you, progress in the game, badges earned, and any content that you have submitted and tagged as "public". Your sock’s information you provide and can change at any time includes a profile picture of your sock, your sock's name, and a short description about your sock. You can change your sock’s information and the privacy setting of your Profile Page at anytime on the Profile Edit page.
Privacy for Individual Pieces of Content
Each and every time you submit a image or YouTube URL to complete a mission, you have the option of making that content open to the public or private only to you and socksinc.com’s moderators. (Please note that a YouTube URL may be private on socksinc.com, but it will still be available to the public on youtube.com). All video content is subject to Youtube.com’s privacy policies. All public submissions are reviewed by a moderator before going up on the site. You will be notified by email when your submission is posted; or if it was rejected and the reason for rejection.
Like most website operators, socksinc.com and its developer, Awkward Hug, LLC collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. socksinc.com’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how socksinc.com’s visitors use its website. From time to time, socksinc.com may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
socksinc.com also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. socksinc.com does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
Certain visitors to socksinc.com’s websites choose to interact with socksinc.com in ways that require socksinc.com to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that socksinc.com gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our forums to provide a username and email address. In each case, socksinc.com collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with socksinc.com. socksinc.com does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Socksinc.com may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. However, socksinc.com does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Socksinc.com discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on socksinc.com’s behalf or to provide services available at socksinc.com’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using socksinc.com’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. socksinc.com will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, socksinc.com discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when socksinc.com believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of socksinc.com, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a socksinc.com website and have supplied your email address, socksinc.com may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with socksinc.com and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. socksinc.com takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
