Privacy Policy / Terms of Service

Commitment to your privacy

This site is owned and operated by Full Sail, LLC. Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. At Full Sail, we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe. Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand our policy and the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.

With GetInMedia.com Full Sail gathers two types of information about users:

Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to request information to be transmitted via email newsletters, or communicating through our “Contact” feature. Information Full Sail gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. 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 Full Sail divulge any information about an individual user to a third party, other than its partner schools. With GetInMedia.com Full Sail 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:

Email “Newsletter” We will send a free electronic newsletter to all registrants with valid email addresses, which contains a link that allows the registrant to opt-out of the newsletter at any time.

Children

Consistent with the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.

Usage Tracking

Full Sail tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. Full Sail 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).

Full Sail sometimes tracks and catalogs the search terms that users enter in our Search function, but this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users visit 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 website for you.

Cookies

We may place a text file called a “cookie” in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain personal information although it will enable us to relate your use of this site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can’t read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Full Sail uses cookies to track user traffic patterns (as described above). Our advertising system delivers a one-time cookie to better track ad impressions and click rates. You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. If you’ve set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, you will receive the warning message with each cookie. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use GetInMedia.com. However, there may be certain portions of the sites that can only be used if cookies are turned on.

USE OF INFORMATION

Full Sail uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience in our network of sites, 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 use information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out electronic newsletters. We send out newsletters to subscribers on a variable schedule (depending on the newsletter), and occasionally send out special announcements when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing. These lists may be shared with our partner schools. Full Sail never shares newsletter mailing lists with any third parties.

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 website for you. We track search terms entered in Search function as one of many measures of what interests our users. But we don’t track which terms a particular user enters.

Full Sail creates aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns. We will not disclose any information about any individual user except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.

SHARING OF THE INFORMATION

Full Sail uses the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs and to better understand our audience’s demographics. This information may be shared with our partner schools. We will not share information about individual users with any third party, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.

SECURITY

Full Sail operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our customers.

OPT-OUT POLICY

All electronic newsletters will give recipients an opportunity to opt-out of future electronic newsletter distributions.
