HomeOfHeroes.com Respects Your Privacy.   We are committed to providing you the highest quality content, products, and services and to protecting your right to privacy.

 

Our Commitment to Privacy

This Policy is designed to assist you in understanding how we collect, use, and safeguard the personal information you provide to us, and to assist you in making informed decisions when using our site and our products and services. This statement will be continuously assessed against new technologies, business practices and our customers' needs.  Access to and use of the HomeOfHeroes.com Web site is available only to individuals who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. If you do not qualify, you may not use the HomeOfHeroes.com Web site. If you are a minor, you may use the HomeOfHeroes.com Web site only in conjunction with your parent, legal guardian, or other responsible adult supervision. We urge supervising adults to actively oversee minors' online use.

 

When you visit our Web site you may provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis, and Web site use information collected on an aggregate basis based upon "cookies" as you browse our Web site.  Personal information is usually collected through "Sign-up programs" that allow "Log-on" procedures.  At present we do not have a log-on program, though eventually we will be implementing password protected log-on requirements to access such features as our bulletin boards and chat room.

 

Web Site Use Information
Similar to other commercial Web sites, our Web site utilizes a standard technology called "cookies" (see explanation below, "What Are Cookies?") and Web server logs to collect information about how our Web site is used. Information gathered through cookies and Web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, browser version, time spent at our Web site, and the Web sites visited just before and just after our Web site. This information is collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with you as an individual.

What Are Cookies?
Cookies are a feature of Web browser software that allows Web servers to recognize the computer used to access a Web site. They are small pieces of data that are stored by a user's Web browser on the user's hard drive. Cookies can remember what information a user accesses on one Web page to simplify subsequent interactions with that Web site by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user's transactions on related Web pages. This makes it easier for a user to move from Web page to Web page and to complete commercial transactions over the Internet. Cookies should make your online experience easier and more personalized.

 

How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?
We use Web site browser software tools such as cookies and Web server logs to gather information about our Web site users' browsing activities in order to constantly improve our Web site and better serve our customers. This information assists us in designing and arranging our Web pages in the most user-friendly manner, and in continually improving our Web site to better meet the needs of our customers and prospective customers.

Cookies help us collect important business and technical statistics. The information in the cookies lets us trace the paths followed by users to our Web site as they move from one page to another. Web server logs allow us to count how many people visit our Web site and evaluate our Web site's visitor capacity. We do not use these technologies to capture your individual email address or any personally identifying information about you, although they do permit us to send focused online banner advertisements or other such responses to you.

Sharing Information with Affiliates
From time to time you may notice offers from outside companies advertised on our Web site. We take measures to select product or service providers that are reputable. However, we cannot make any representations about the practices and policies of these companies.

 Notice of New Services and Changes
Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our Web site, new services, and special offers we think you will find valuable.

 How Do We Protect Your Information?
We utilize encryption/security software to safeguard the confidentiality of personal information we collect. This software provides protection against unauthorized access or disclosure, as well as accidental loss, alteration, or destruction.

Do We Disclose Information to Outside Parties?
We may provide aggregate information about our customers, sales, Web site traffic patterns, and related Web site information to our affiliates or reputable third parties, but this information will not include personally identifying data.

 

Do We Comply with Legally Compelled Disclosure of Information?
We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights.

What About Other Web Sites Linked to or from Our Web Site?
We are not responsible for the practices employed by Web sites linked to or from the HomeOfHeroes.com nor the information or content contained therein. Often links to other Web sites are provided solely as pointers to information on topics that may be useful to the users of our Web site.

Please remember that when you use a link to go from our Web site to another Web site, our Privacy Policy is no longer in effect. Your browsing and interaction on any other Web site, including Web sites which have a link to our Web site, is subject to that Web site's own rules and policies.

 

HomeOfHeroes.com Makes No Warranties Regarding Accuracy or Advice
HomeOfHeroes.com makes no warranty with respect to the content, information, or services provided through, or in conjunction with, our user chat comments, web pages, resumes, profiles, and discussion board postings. HomeOfHeroes.com makes no guarantee of the accuracy, correctness, or completeness of any information on the site (from whatever source), and is not responsible for: (i) any errors of omission arising from the use of such information; (ii) any failures, delays or interruptions in the delivery of any content or service contained within the site; (iii) any libelous or unlawful material contained within user web pages, profiles, or postings. As a user, you agree to indemnify HomeOfHeroes.com, its partners, advertisers, and third-party content providers against any and all claims and expenses, including attorney's fees, arising from the use of chat rooms and the site. This expressly includes: (i) user responsibility for any and all liability arising from the violation or infringement of proprietary rights or copyrights, and (ii) any libelous, defamatory, or unlawful material contained within user chat comments, Web pages, resumes, profiles, and discussion board postings.

You use this site at your own risk. If your use of this site or the materials therein results in the need for servicing or replacing property, material, equipment or data, HomeOfHeroes.com is NOT responsible for those costs. All information, products, and services are provided "as is" without warranty of any kind. In no event shall HomeOfHeroes.com, its affiliates, and/or its suppliers be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, or consequential damages arising out of or in any way connected with the use of this site or with the delay or inability to use this site, or for any information, products, and services obtained through this site, or otherwise arising out of the use of this site, whether based on contract, tort, strict liability, or otherwise, even if HomeOfHeroes.com, its affiliates, or any of its suppliers has been advised of the possibility of damages. Because some states/jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply to you.

HomeOfHeroes.com shall not be responsible for any loss or damage caused, or alleged to have been caused, directly or indirectly, by the information or ideas contained, suggested, or referenced in its site. Your participation in HomeOfHeroes.com is solely at your own risk. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from HomeOfHeroes.com or through HomeOfHeroes.com shall create any warranty not expressly made herein.

Public Forums
This site makes chat rooms, forums, discussion boards, email, user-generated homepages, and/or news groups available to its users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information, and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information. Your right to speak freely here must be exercised with courtesy and self-restraint. When you enter a chat room or use a discussion board in HomeOfHeroes.com, it constitutes your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this site, including this Policy, provided by HomeOfHeroes.com. If you do not agree to abide by these terms and conditions, please do not use these services.

We Do Not Tolerate Harassment
We will not allow any illegal activities. Specifically, we won't let you advocate illegal conduct or participate in illegal or fraudulent schemes. You cannot use our chat room to distribute unauthorized copies of copyrighted material, including photos, artwork, text, recordings, designs, or computer programs. In addition, we do not allow the trading or swapping of images that are sexually explicit, obscene, or vulgar. Because there can be no way of ensuring compliance with this section, rooms titled for the purpose of exchanging or swapping images are not allowed. We will not allow you to impersonate someone else, including one of our trained chat hosts. Please do not use deceptive nicknames that would lead people to believe you are a person or a rank that you are not. Use of names such as "AdmHall," or "GenWestmoreland" is both misleading and disrespectful. Stalking of others, in our chat rooms or in another manner, is a serious offense. Such behavior may be considered a criminal act. Accordingly, we reserve the right to release your personal information to the proper authorities as a result of your violating our standards or performing unlawful acts, when such information is subpoenaed, or when we, at our sole discretion, deem it necessary and/or appropriate. We also reserve the right to cancel your membership and/or terminate your use of the HomeOfHeroes.com Site at any time and for any reason. We cannot guarantee the content of comments that you will receive while you are online. Other people's comments may be offensive, harmful, or inaccurate.

 

We do our best to encourage comfort and discourage disruptive communication.
HomeOfHeroes.com does not allow posting or use of computer programs that contain destructive features, such as viruses, worms, Trojan horses, etc. We also do not allow any bots or scripts on the server, whether they are benign or destructive in intent. We also discourage disruptive conduct: persistent off-topic comments in a topic-oriented conference, statements that incite others to violate the rules of proper conduct, or the physical act of "scrolling" -- repeatedly hitting the Return key in a chat -- all are considered disruptive. The use of pop-ups that are excessively long (more than two lines of text), and the use of pop-ups or sound waves in a repetitive manner that disrupts the topic or conversation in a room, is not allowed.

 

We Do Not Allow Unauthorized Commercial Activity
We encourage communication between our members, but posting or transmitting unauthorized or unsolicited advertising, promotional materials, or any other forms of solicitation to other users is prohibited. Inquiries regarding a commercial relationship with HomeOfHeroes.com should be directed to our webmaster.

 

Your Consent
By using our Web site you consent to our collection and use of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy. If we change our privacy policies and procedures, we will attempt to post those changes on our Web site to keep you aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we may disclose it. By using our Web site, you agree that HomeOfHeroes.com may immediately, without prior notice, issue a warning, temporarily suspend, indefinitely suspend, or terminate your use and refuse to provide the access to or use of the HomeOfHeroes.com Web site at HomeOfHeroes.com's sole discretion, for any reason, whether with or without cause. You also acknowledge that HomeOfHeroes.com may in its sole discretion add, delete, or change some or the entire HomeOfHeroes.com site at any time.

Further, you expressly agree that use of HomeOfHeroes.com is at your sole risk. HomeOfHeroes.com is provided on an "as is" and "as available" basis. HomeOfHeroes.com expressly disclaims all warranties of any kind, express or implied, including without limitation any warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement.

By using our Web site you agree that any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Privacy Policy shall be settled by binding arbitration in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association.  Any party seeking temporary or preliminary injunctive relief may do so in any state or federal court in Colorado having jurisdiction thereof. By using the HomeOfHeroes.com Web site you consent to personal jurisdiction and venue in the state and federal courts in Colorado with respect to all disputes.
