Thank you for visiting the Token White Guy Show (“us,” “we,” “our,” or “TWG Show”), located at tokenwhiteguy.net (the “Website”). Your privacy is important to us. To that end, we provide this Privacy Policy (“Policy”) explaining our information practices and the way your information is collected and used by TWG Show.

Please note that by visiting this Website, you consent to the collection, storage, use, and disclosure of your information, and accept our practices and policies as described in this Policy.

This Policy does not apply to the practices and policies of third-parties including, but not limited to, third-party services you access through the Website.

Information We May Collect

Personal Information

Personally identifiable information (“PII”) is information “that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context” (source: Wikipedia). This includes, but is not limited to, name, address, email address, date of birth, phone number, screen name, and gender.

TWG Show collects PII that you voluntarily provide to us. This collection may occur when you register for and/or maintain an account on our Website, contact us by email or through one of the Website’s contact forms, send us a direct message via Twitter or Facebook, complete a survey, enter a contest, sweepstakes, and promotion, sign up for a newsletter, leave a comment on one or our articles, posts, or pages, or subscribe to one of our services. PII collection could also occur as a result of using a third-party service through our Website. For example, logging into the Website through Facebook Connect may result in the third-party connection passing PII, like your Facebook ID, to TWG Show.

The decision to supply TWG Show with your PII is yours and yours alone. If you choose not to provide the requested information, however, you may not be able to access some of the Website’s features and services.

Usage Data

TWG Show automatically collects non-personally identifiable information in connection with the actions you take (“Usage Data”) when visiting the Website. Such information may include, but is not limited to, your IP Address, your Internet Service Provider, the website that linked you to us, search engine terms used to find us, your browser type, your computer’s operating system, the time and duration of your visit, the pages you view, and location-based information.

If you have voluntarily provided us with any PII, your Usage Data may become associated with it.

Cookies and Web Beacons

TWG Show may use cookies (small text file stored on your computer) and/or web beacons (small object embedded on the Website to monitor visitor activity). We believe cookies and web beacons (collectively, “Cookies”) can improve the experience of a site and its features and services. We do not use Cookies to collect PII. We may grant advertisers and third-party providers permission to use Cookies, either by placing their own Cookies or accessing ours, in connection with ads, services, and/or features they provide on our behalf.

Most browsers can be configured to alert you when a Cookie is being placed on your computer, to allow you to blacklist a website from placing a Cookie on your computer, and/or to disable Cookies completely. Please note that some features of our Website might not work properly if Cookies are blocked.

If you have voluntarily provided us with any PII, this information may be linked to the data stored on the Cookie.

Third-Party Advertising Companies

Some of the ads displayed on the Website may be from third-party advertising companies. These advertising companies may use Cookies to collect non-personally identifiable information about your visits to tokenwhiteguy.net and other websites. This information is then used by the advertising companies to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you (think about how ads for an item, like toasters, start displaying on every site you visit after you looked at said item on Amazon.com). We do not endorse, sponsor, or guarantee any products or services advertised on the Website by third-parties.

TWG Show has no control over Cookies placed on your computer by third-party advertising companies, nor do we have any say over how the information those Cookies collect is used. For more information about this practice, to see which companies are currently customizing the ads you see, or to opt-out of this practice, visit NAI Consumer Opt-Out.

How We Use Information We Collect

In General

TWG Show may use all information we have collected to offer products, programs, or services we feel may be of interest to you. In addition, we may use this information to analyze site usage, identify current trends, summarize viewer preferences, and improve our content, offerings, and advertisements.

In order to run tokenwhiteguy.net, we will have to engage certain trusted third-parties to perform functions and provide services to us. This may include, but is not limited to, hosting and maintenance, database storage, site analysis, contest, sweepstakes, and promotion management, and direct marketing campaigns. We will share your PII with these third-parties only to the extent necessary to perform these functions and provide such services, and only if the third-parties have policies, or a binding contractual obligation is agreed upon, that are designed to maintain the privacy and security of your data.

We will not share PII to third-party advertisers for their direct marketing purposes.
