Gromco, Inc owns and operates the NY Bits web site. Gromco considers privacy to be an extremely important issue. We are committed to protecting your personal information. Below is an outline of our policy.
Like most standard Web site servers, NY Bits uses log files and records IP addresses, browser types, referring/exit pages and similar information to analyze trends, administer the site and track users' movements in the aggregate. This data is not linked to personally identifiable information.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. Most web browsers will accept cookies by default, but they can be set to reject cookies, either from all websites or from specific sites. You can also manually delete cookies from your web browser. These options are generally set through a "Privacy" setting in your browser setup.
The ads appearing on this Web site may be delivered through our business partners, including Google AdSense, Media.net and other third-party networks. In the course of serving advertisements to this site, our partners may place or recognize a unique cookie in your browser. This information is used to serve ads to you.
NY Bits contains discussion boards. To be able to post on discussion boards, you need to register. Reading them does not require registration. The only piece of personally identifiable information required for discussion boards registration is your email address.
If you wish, you can also personalize your profile, which users can view when you post. This profile may be modified at any time. You can opt to have your email address hidden by logging in and checking the appropriate checkbox in your user profile manager. Our software also allows you to edit your postings at a later time.
Our discussion boards are a public forum. We do not protect information from use or misuse nor do we guarantee the accuracy of information posted on the boards.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, Gromco 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 any of our web sites. We may use any and all information we collect to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims. We may transfer personal information we collected if this web site or Gromco, Inc as a whole is acquired by or merged with another company.
Gromco has taken measures to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control. Gromco's networking systems include standard networking equipment designed to prevent unauthorized access to any information stored within our network. All information is regularly backed up and copies are stored at a secure location.
