INFORMATION NEXUS GATHERS AND TRACKS
Nexus gathers two types of information about users:
- Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to communicate with us through email, to email a friend, to participate in occasional surveys or to receive periodic electronic newsletters.
- Information Nexus gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our site. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers' needs and to better understand the demographics of our audience. Under no circumstances does Nexus divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.
Nexus gathers user information In the following Processes:
Optional Voluntary Information
We offer the following free services, which require some type of voluntary submission of personal information by users:
Our site users can choose to electronically correspond with us through email. The user must provide their email address and may disclose additional information pertinent to their specific inquiry. This information is used only for the purpose of corresponding with the user and addressing their specific questions. The information is not used for any other purpose.
"E-mail this to a friend" Service
Our site users can choose to electronically forward a link, page, or documents to someone else by clicking "e-mail this to a friend". The user must provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient. This information is used only in the case of transmission errors and to let the recipient know who sent the email. The information is not used for any other purpose.
Electronic newsletters (Dispatches)
Periodically, Nexus may offer a free electronic newsletter to users. Nexus gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the link provided in every newsletter that points users to the subscription management page.
Nexus may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.
Nexus tracks user traffic patterns throughout our site. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. Nexus does break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).
Nexus uses tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
USE OF INFORMATION
Nexus uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience on our site, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the sites or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users. As stated above, we may use information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out periodic electronic newsletters and to enable users to participate in occasional surveys. Nexus never shares newsletter mailing lists with any third parties. When we use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas, we do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
SHARING OF THE INFORMATION
