Privacy Policy

ShyGuyDatingAdvice.com strives to offer its vis­i­tors the many advan­tages of Inter­net tech­nol­ogy and to pro­vide an inter­ac­tive and per­son­al­ized experience.

We may use Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Infor­ma­tion (your name, e-mail address, street address, tele­phone num­ber) sub­ject to the terms of this pri­vacy pol­icy. We will never sell, barter, or rent your email address to any unau­tho­rized third party. “Period.”

How we gather infor­ma­tion from users

How we col­lect and store infor­ma­tion depends on the page you are vis­it­ing, the activ­i­ties in which you elect to par­tic­i­pate and the ser­vices provided.

For exam­ple, you may be asked to pro­vide infor­ma­tion when you reg­is­ter for access to cer­tain por­tions of our site or request cer­tain fea­tures, such as newslet­ters, reports, or when you make a pur­chase. You may pro­vide infor­ma­tion when you par­tic­i­pate in sweep­stakes and con­tests, mes­sage boards and chat rooms, and other inter­ac­tive areas of our site.

Like most Web sites, ShyGuyDatingAdvice.com also col­lects infor­ma­tion auto­mat­i­cally and through the use of elec­tronic tools that may be trans­par­ent to our vis­i­tors. For exam­ple, we may log the name of your Inter­net Ser­vice Provider or use cookie tech­nol­ogy to rec­og­nize you and hold infor­ma­tion from your visit. Among other things, the cookie may store your user name and pass­word, spar­ing you from hav­ing to re-enter that infor­ma­tion each time you visit, or may con­trol the num­ber of times you encounter a par­tic­u­lar adver­tise­ment while vis­it­ing our site.

As we adopt addi­tional tech­nol­ogy, we may also gather infor­ma­tion through other means.

In cer­tain cases, you can choose not to pro­vide us with infor­ma­tion, for exam­ple by set­ting your browser to refuse to accept cook­ies, but if you do you may be unable to access cer­tain por­tions of the site or may be asked to re-enter your user name and pass­word, and we may not be able to cus­tomize the site’s fea­tures accord­ing to your preferences.

What we do with the infor­ma­tion we collect

Like other Web pub­lish­ers, we col­lect infor­ma­tion to enhance your visit and deliver more indi­vid­u­al­ized con­tent and advertising. We respect your pri­vacy and do not share your infor­ma­tion with anyone.

Aggre­gated Infor­ma­tion (infor­ma­tion that does not per­son­ally iden­tify you) may be used in many ways. For exam­ple, we may com­bine infor­ma­tion about your usage pat­terns with sim­i­lar infor­ma­tion obtained from other users to help enhance our site and ser­vices (e.g. to learn which pages are vis­ited most or what fea­tures are most attractive).

Aggre­gated Infor­ma­tion may occa­sion­ally be shared with our adver­tis­ers and busi­ness part­ners. Again, this infor­ma­tion does not include any Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Infor­ma­tion about you or allow any­one to iden­tify you individually.

We may use Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Infor­ma­tion col­lected on ShyGuyDatingAdvice.com to com­mu­ni­cate with you about your reg­is­tra­tion and cus­tomiza­tion pref­er­ences; our Terms of Ser­vice and pri­vacy pol­icy; ser­vices and prod­ucts offered by ShyGuyDatingAdvice.com and other top­ics we think you might find of interest.

Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Infor­ma­tion col­lected by ShyGuyDatingAdvice.com may also be used for other pur­poses, includ­ing but not lim­ited to site admin­is­tra­tion, trou­bleshoot­ing, pro­cess­ing of e-commerce trans­ac­tions, admin­is­tra­tion of sweep­stakes and con­tests, and other com­mu­ni­ca­tions with you. Cer­tain third par­ties who pro­vide tech­ni­cal sup­port for the oper­a­tion of our site (our Web host­ing ser­vice for exam­ple) may access such information.

We will use your infor­ma­tion only as per­mit­ted by law. In addi­tion, from time to time as we con­tinue to develop our busi­ness, we may sell, buy, merge or part­ner with other com­pa­nies or busi­nesses. In such trans­ac­tions, user infor­ma­tion may be among the trans­ferred assets.

We may also dis­close your infor­ma­tion in response to a court order, at other times when we believe we are rea­son­ably required to do so by law, in con­nec­tion with the col­lec­tion of amounts you may owe to us, and/or to law enforce­ment author­i­ties when­ever we deem it appro­pri­ate or nec­es­sary. Please note we may not pro­vide you with notice prior to dis­clo­sure in such cases.

Affil­i­ated sites, linked sites and advertisements

ShyGuyDatingAdvice.com expects its part­ners, adver­tis­ers and affil­i­ates to respect the pri­vacy of our users.

Be aware, how­ever, that third par­ties, includ­ing our part­ners, adver­tis­ers, affil­i­ates and other con­tent providers acces­si­ble through our site, may have their own pri­vacy and data col­lec­tion poli­cies and prac­tices. For exam­ple, dur­ing your visit to our site you may link to, or view as part of a frame on a ShyGuyDatingAdvice.com page, cer­tain con­tent that is actu­ally cre­ated or hosted by a third party.

Also, through ShyGuyDatingAdvice.com you may be intro­duced to, or be able to access, infor­ma­tion, Web sites, fea­tures, con­tests or sweep­stakes offered by other par­ties. ShyGuyDatingAdvice.com is not respon­si­ble for the actions or poli­cies of such third parties.

You should check the applic­a­ble pri­vacy poli­cies of those third par­ties when pro­vid­ing infor­ma­tion on a fea­ture or page oper­ated by a third party.

While on our site, our adver­tis­ers, pro­mo­tional part­ners or other third par­ties may use cook­ies or other tech­nol­ogy to attempt to iden­tify some of your pref­er­ences or retrieve infor­ma­tion about you. For exam­ple, some of our adver­tis­ing is served by third par­ties and may include cook­ies that enable the adver­tiser to deter­mine whether you have seen a par­tic­u­lar adver­tise­ment before.

Other fea­tures avail­able on our site may offer ser­vices oper­ated by third par­ties and may use cook­ies or other tech­nol­ogy to gather infor­ma­tion. ShyGuyDatingAdvice.com does not con­trol the use of this tech­nol­ogy by third par­ties or the result­ing infor­ma­tion, and is not respon­si­ble for any actions or poli­cies of such third parties.

You should also be aware that if you vol­un­tar­ily dis­close Per­son­ally Iden­ti­fi­able Infor­ma­tion on mes­sage boards or in chat areas, that infor­ma­tion can be viewed pub­licly and can be col­lected and used by third par­ties with­out our knowl­edge and may result in unso­licited mes­sages from other indi­vid­u­als or third parties.

Such activ­i­ties are beyond the con­trol of ShyGuyDatingAdvice.com and this policy.

Gov­ern­ing law

If it proves impos­si­ble to arrive at a mutu­ally sat­is­fac­tory solu­tion through medi­a­tion, we agree to sub­mit the dis­pute to bind­ing arbi­tra­tion at the fol­low­ing loca­tion: Bay­ern, Germany.

Judg­ment upon the award ren­dered by the arbi­tra­tion may be entered in any court with juris­dic­tion to do so. ShyGuyDatingAdvice.com is con­trolled, oper­ated and admin­is­tered entirely within Bay­ern, Germany.
