Privacy Statement

This statement covers the site ("G-A-Y"). This statement should be read carefully, as your use of G-A-Y indicates your agreement to abide by these terms.

Respecting the privacy of our users is of utmost importance to G-A-Y. The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to ensure we interact with our users in accordance with current legislation and the wishes of our users.

Information Collection
G-A-Y is the sole owner of the information collected on User information may be collected at several different points on our Web site.

Third Party Cookies
Advertisers and other business partners may use cookies on our site. G-A-Y has no access to or control over these cookies, once we have given permission for them to set cookies for advertising. This privacy statement covers the use of cookies by G-A-Y only and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Third Party Advertising
The ads appearing on G-A-Y are delivered to users by Google, BlogAds, Burst Media, among other services. Information regarding users’ visit to this site, such as number of times they have viewed an ad (but not username, date of birth, or any other personal information), is used to ensure delivery of useful and high quality ads to our readers.

Log Files
G-A-Y may collect information in the form of log files to gather information about user's viewing habits, analyze trends, administer the site, and obtain demographic information. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information. We may use a tracking utility that uses log files to analyze user movement.

Emails sent to G-A-Y are considered property of G-A-Y. We do not make a point to deliberately reveal personal information sent to us via email (i.e., we will not "out" anyone, reveal an emailer's work affiliation is asked not to), and will always respect your explicit request to remain anonymous or to hold a completely "off-the-record" communication. However, unless anonymity is specifically requested, the information sent to us in standard emails is considered suitable for publication, at the editor's discretion. So think before you fire off those angry words that you might not necessarily mean.

If you wish to remain anonymous when commenting on a post, then do not provide your name or email address. Neither are required. However, any information you deliberately choose to submit in the form of a comment is considered property of G-A-Y. Likewise, G-A-Y is not responsible for any damages that may come from your choice of words or identification (including, but not limited to, repercussions that may stem from using a work-identified email address).

Legal Disclaimer
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, G-A-Y may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our Web site.

In addition, in the event that G-A-Y undergoes a business transition, such as a merger or acquisition by another company, users’ personal information may be part of the assets transferred.

External Links
The G-A-Y web site contains links to other sites. This Privacy Policy does not extend to sites that are linked to us, but outside of our network. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by G-A-Y.

Notification of Changes
Whenever G-A-Y changes our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, and other places we deem appropriate so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
