Keeping your personal information secure and ensuring your understanding of how we use that information is important to us. InspireMeChicago.com approaches our
communications on the Internet with respect for, and commitment to, individual privacy rights. Our goal is to help you understand how the personal information you choose to share with us through this website is used and maintained.
Collecting Personal Information
This may include, for example, your name, postal address or e-mail address as well as other non-personally identifiable information or demographic information such as your date of birth, age, gender, habits or references when such information is tied to your personally identifiable information (collectively, “personal information”). We request only the personal information we feel we need to offer the service or feature.
If you use certain features of this website, such the comment submission and forums, you will be required to provide your contact information in order for us to process your submission and/or information.
Personal information is only collected with your knowledge (for example, if you voluntarily provide it to us through one of the online forms available on this site). The personal information you provide and the data you create and save on this site may be used to provide a service to you. Such personal data will also be used to administer our business, this site and our services in a manner consistent with our Terms and Conditions of Use as well as all applicable laws, rules, regulations, or other legal obligations.
When Personal Information May Be Shared With Other Parties
We may provide your personal information to third parties who provide services on our behalf. These parties may use the information solely in conjunction with the specific services they provide for us, such as distribution of a newsletter, consumer survey, responding to a question or comment, or investigation of a complaint. InspireMeChicago.com may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with the law or to protect our interests or property. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies in connection with issues related to fraud, credit and debt collection.
If you choose not to submit any personal information upon request, you may not be able to participate in certain personalized features on this website, which may limit the services and special offers we can provide you. However, simply browsing our site to learn more does not require the submission of any personal information.
