Collected Information - Voluntary

Ukritic.com, of Ukritic Ventures, Inc (from this point on referred to as "Ukritic") does not collect or obtain any personal or contact information about its users without their express, prior permission.

Newsletter Information:

When users register as a Ukritic member, they are simultaneously subscribed to the Ukritic announcement list, and the Ukritic newsletter.

Ukritic uses a reputable, CAN-SPAM compliant newsletter management service. Ukritic only sends email communications specifically relevent to publishing on Ukritic, best-practices related to publishing on Ukritic, and other tightly-related news items, industry points of interest and otherwise highly related items to the Ukritic experience.

If a subscribed user wishes to unsubscribe from the newsletter for any reason, he or she may do so instantly by following the automated unsubscribe link, located in the footer of every email. In addition, the user may email us at privacy@Ukritic.com, or by mail at:

Ukritic Ventures, Inc

Canada

The data collected by our newsletter system will be used for marketing purposes related to topics on affiliate marketing, product review publishing and related topics within internet publishing/marketing.

Ukritic does not sell, rent or share information voluntarily submitted by its users to anyone - with the possible exception of law enforcement agencies inquiring about a member, and only if proper documentation (such as a warrant or court order) is furnished by such agency.

Announcement List, Crucial Information:

Ukritic will send activity notifications to users based on important events that occur on Ukritic which affect their account. For example, when a review has been approved (or denied) by Ukritic's moderation staff.

Users can generally unsubscribe or opt out of all but the most crucial notifications. In the case of crucial system announcements (such as a substantial change to Ukritic's Terms of Use, legal notices, and other essential information), users cannot unsubscribe or opt-out. In order to completely opt-out of receiving crucial notices, a user will have to terminate his or her Ukritic account.

Collected Information - Involuntary

The only information collected involuntarily from all visitors is basic geographic, referral, on-site navigation patterns and IP information for the purpose of tracking our website traffic statistics. We use this data in order to improve our website & user experience, as well as measuring the effectiveness of our advertising & marketing efforts.

Data is not evaluated on a "user by user" basis, but rather in the aggregate on a mass scale. We look at the overall patterns based on the statistical information collected from thousands of visitors.

The data is collected (and stored) by our preferred & reputable traffic analysis service. The data is stored securely and is not publicly available. Only Ukritic (ownership & staff) can access this statistical data, without exception.

This data is collected through the use of a simple javascript script on each page of Ukritic, and does not interfere with or affect the user's internet browsing program whatsoever. Currently, all of the involuntary data collection and storing is orchestrated via Ukritic's account with Google Analytics.

About Spyware, Adware, Malware or Other Invasive Technologies:

Ukritic does NOT use spyware, adware, viruses, trojans or otherwise any invasive, involuntary methods to increase incoming traffic, or otherwise for any other purpose.
