Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy governs the manner in which Only Somehwat Queer collects, uses, maintains and discloses information collected from users (each, a "User") of the website ("blog"). This privacy policy applies to the blog and all products and services offered by Only Somehwat Queer.

Personal identification information
I may collect personal identification information from Users in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, when Users visit the blog, fill out a form, and in connection with other activities, services, features or resources I make available on the blog. Users may be asked for, as appropriate, name, email address, and/or mailing address. Users may, however, visit the blog anonymously. I will collect personal identification information from Users only if they voluntarily submit such information to me. Users can always refuse to supply personal identification information, except that it may prevent them from engaging in certain blog related activities.

Non-personal identification information
The blog may collect non-personal identification information about Users whenever they interact with the blog. Non-personal identification information may include the browser name, the type of computer and technical information about Users means of connection to my blog, such as the operating system and the Internet service providers utilized and other similar information.

Web browser cookies
The blog may use "cookies" to enhance User experience. User's web browser places cookies on their hard drive for record-keeping purposes and sometimes to track information about them. User may choose to set their web browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If they do so, note that some parts of the blog may not function properly.

How we use collected information
Only Somehwat Queer collects and uses the Users' personal information for the following purposes:

- To administer a content, promotion, survey or other Site feature
To send Users information they agreed to receive about topics I think will be of interest to them, or to inform them of their win in a contest or giveaway.
- To send periodic emails
The email address Users provide will only be used to respond to their inquiries, and/or other requests or questions. If User decides to opt-in to the mailing list, they will receive emails that may include blog news and updates. If at any time the User would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, there is an unsubscribe instruction at the bottom of each email.

How we protect your information
I adopt appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your personal information, username, password, transaction information and data stored on the blog.

Sensitive and private data exchange between the blog and its Users happens over a SSL secured communication channel and is encrypted and protected with digital signatures.

Sharing your personal information
I do not sell, trade, or rent Users personal identification information to others. I may share generic aggregated demographic information not linked to any personal identification information regarding visitors and users with business partners, trusted affiliates and advertisers for the purposes outlined above. I may use third party service providers to help us operate business and the blog or administer activities on my behalf, such as sending out prizes, etc. I may share your information with these third parties for those limited purposes provided that you have given us your permission.

Third party websites
Users may find advertising or other content on my blog that link to the sites and services of partners, suppliers, advertisers, sponsors, licensors and other third parties. I do not control the content or links that appear on these sites and are not responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to or from my Site. In addition, these sites or services, including their content and links, may be constantly changing. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies and customer service policies. Browsing and interaction on any other website, including websites which have a link to this Site, is subject to that website's own terms and policies.

Compliance with children's online privacy protection act
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, I never collect or maintain information at my blog from those I actually know are under 13, and no part of my blog is structured to attract anyone under 13.

Only Somehwat Queer has the discretion to update this privacy policy at any time. When I do, I will revise the updated date at the bottom of this page. I encourage Users to frequently check this page for any changes to stay informed about how I am helping to protect the personal information I collect.
