What Personal Information About Users Does Ask Miss A, LLC Collect? Our primary goal in collecting personal information is to personalize and improve our service. We collect the following types of information from our users:

  1. Information You Provide to Us:
  • We may receive and store any information you enter on our websites or provide to us in any other way, such as your name, email address, and other information you provide. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our special features, such as posting comments to our websites, creating a user profile or receiving email alerts. The personal information you provide is used for such purposes as responding to your requests for certain products and services customizing the advertising content you see and communicating with you.
  • Registration: In order for you to use certain parts of our websites or take advantage of certain Ask Miss A, LLC’s services, you may be required to complete a registration form and provide the requested information about you.
  • You post information at your own risk. Although we allow you to set privacy options that limit access to your pages, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of other users with whom you may choose to share your pages and information. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that information you post on the website will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the website. You understand and acknowledge that, even after removal, copies of your information may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if other users have copied or stored your information.
  1. Automatic Information:
  • We may receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. Ask Miss A, LLC may automatically receive and record certain “traffic data” on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, Ask Miss A, LLC cookie information, the page you requested, and your communications and interaction with our other website registrants. Ask Miss A, LLC uses this traffic data to, among other things, help diagnose problems with its server, analyze trends and administer our websites.
  • Generally, our service may automatically collect usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our websites and its components. This data is only used in the aggregate, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of collective data enables us to figure out how often users use parts of our websites, so we can make our websites appealing to as many users as possible. In addition, we may provide statistical information to our partners about how our users, collectively, use our websites. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use their areas and our websites, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal Web experience. We also collect and use information for internal purposes. For example, if you are a registered user of the Ask Miss A, LLC email and/or subscription based services, we may keep records in your account history of your complaints about other registered users online behavior, and any reported violation of our Terms of Use that you or someone on your account may have committed.
  • Many companies offer programs that help you to visit websites anonymously. While Ask Miss A, LLC will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these programs are available.
  1. Email Communications:
  • We may receive a confirmation when you open an email from Ask Miss A, LLC if your computer supports this type of program, in order to help us make emails more interesting and helpful. We may also send out emails with news or promotions.
