A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, that is sent to your browser from a web site's computers and stored on your computer's hard drive. You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. If you reject all cookies, you will not be able to use Alyssa Nicole products or services that require you to "sign in," and you may not be able to take full advantage of the Alyssa Nicole service. Alyssa Nicole uses its own cookies for a number of purposes, including to: Access your information when you "sign in"; keep track of preferences you specify while you are using Alyssa Nicole's services; display the most appropriate advertising banners; estimate and report Alyssa Nicole's total audience size and traffic; conduct research to improve Alyssa Nicole's content and services. Alyssa Nicole cookies do not collect personal information, and Alyssa Nicole does not combine information collected through cookies with other personal information to tell us who you are or what your username or email address is.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Without limiting the above, in an effort to respect your privacy and Alyssa Nicole's ability to keep the community free from bad actors, Alyssa Nicole will not otherwise disclose your personal information to law enforcement, other government officials, or other third parties without a subpoena, court order, legal process, or substantially similar legal procedure, except when Alyssa Nicole believes in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to protect Alyssa Nicole's rights, prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss, or to report suspected illegal activity.
The security of your personal information is important to us. Your Alyssa Nicole account information is protected by a password for your privacy and security. You need to work to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer by signing off once you have finished using a shared computer. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) for registration Alyssa Nicole encrypts that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). Alyssa Nicole follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once Alyssa Nicole receives it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while Alyssa Nicole strives to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, Alyssa Nicole cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on alyssa-nicole.com, you can email Alyssa at firstname.lastname@example.org
