Privacy Policy

Modern Phoenix, LLC (“Modern Phoenix”, “we”or“us”) provides this Privacy Policy to inform you of our policies and procedures regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information we receive from visitors and users of our website and related services accessible at www.ModernPhoenix.net (“Website”) and our informational, educational and social networking functionality (any and all of the foregoing, the “Services”).  As used in this policy, the terms “using” and “processing” information include using cookies on a computer, subjecting the information to statistical or other analysis and using or touching information in any way, including, but not limited to collecting, storing, evaluating, modifying, deleting, using, combining, disclosing and transferring information within the United States or internationally.

1.         User Content and Public Sharing.  The Modern Phoenix Website and Service permits its users to create, post, distribute, upload, display, or otherwise make available or transmit content of their own creations, including written works posted on message boards, chat and blogs, and any other content, including without limitation, videos, music, images, and text (collectively, "User Content"). 

2.         Information Collection and Use.

 

General.  The information we collect about you, the visitor or user of the Website and Services, is used only to give you a better Modern Phoenix experience and/or to provide services and functionality to users and enterprise/business customers who may offer access to Modern Phoenix Services through their own website.  Modern Phoenix may use the information that you provide, or that we collect, to operate, maintain, enhance, and deliver the various features and services found on the Modern Phoenix Website and in connection with the Services.

 

Modern Phoenix also uses all of the information that we collect from users to understand and analyze the usage trends and preferences of our users, to improve the way the Modern Phoenix Website and Service work and look, and to create new features and functionality.  Other examples of how Modern Phoenix may use such information would include to: (A) remember your information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the Website or use the Services; (B) monitor your participation in various sections of the Modern Phoenix Website and Services; (C) customize our Service to you, including by providing you with recommendations, and (D) monitor aggregate Website usage metrics such as total number of visitors and pages viewed.

 

We may use your e-mail address for administrative communications such as notifying you of service or product updates, additional functionality updates, for customer service purposes, and to send privacy or security-related notices.

 

Please note that all of the usage described in this section relates strictly to our use and disclosure of your “personally identifiable information” (as described below).  Modern Phoenix reserves the right to use non-personally identifiable information for any purpose.

In addition, to the extent you use or access the Modern Phoenix Website and/or Services through a third-party website (such as Facebook, Twitter, or Google+), the use and/or disclosure of your information by the owner of that site may be subject to different terms and polices that are outside of Modern Phoenix’s control.  We encourage you to review any applicable terms and policies relating to your use of third-party sites.

 

Personally Identifiable Information.  In the course of using the Website and/or Services, we ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you and administer your account (“Personal Information”).  Personal Information may include, but is not limited to, your name, phone number, user name, email address, age, passwords, and home and business postal addresses.  We use your Personal Information mainly to provide the Services and administer your inquiries.

Please be aware that when you register to become a Modern Phoenix User or account holder, other users of the Services may be able to see your screen or user name, in addition to any comments or submissions that you post to the Website or submit via the Services.  We recommend that you guard your anonymity and sensitive information and that you not use your real name as your screen or user name to the extent that allows others to identify you.  If your use of the Services violates or potentially violates Modern Phoenix’s Community Guidelines or Terms of Use, your Personal Information may be shared with law enforcement and other third parties in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use, and subject to all applicable laws.

We also collect the other information that you provide as part of your use of the Services, including via your registration and the administration and personalization of your profile webpage (e.g., without limitation zip code, gender, age, birthdate, geo-location, unique device identifier, IP address, and individual preferences) (“Non-Identifying Information”). Certain Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of your Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be identified.  But the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other non-identifying information (for example, your viewing preferences).  We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information and aggregate it with information collected from other Modern Phoenix Users to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of the Website and Services and to analyze and understand how our Website and/or Services are used.

We also use your Personal Information to contact you with Modern Phoenix newsletters, marketing or promotional materials, push notifications, and other information that may be of interest to you.  Modern Phoenix Users who agree to the terms and conditions of the Modern Phoenix Terms of Service Agreement are given the opportunity to opt-in to receiving such communications from us in the future.  If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications. (See “Changing or Deleting Your Information,” below.)

Modern Phoenix will also share and use your Personal Information with other networks, websites and entities affiliated, owned, controlled and/or connected with Modern Phoenix.  We will use your Personal Information in compliance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Received Information.  This is information that uniquely identifies you and when you provide it to Modern Phoenix you are also giving your permission to Modern Phoenix to use and store that information consistent with this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use.  Knowing who you are through this information helps Modern Phoenix give you a better experience.  

 

Non-Personal Information.  As you use the Services, whether as n Modern Phoenix user who has an Account with us, or as a non-registered user just browsing, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website, including our Website (“Log Data”).  This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s IP address, unique user ID, browser type or the domain from which you are visiting.  We use this information to monitor and analyze use of the Services and for the Website’s technical administration.  We do not treat Log Data as Personal Information or use it in association with other Personal Information, though we may aggregate, analyze and evaluate such information for the same purposes as stated above regarding other Non-Identifying Information.

Surveys and Promotions. From time to time, we may provide you with the opportunity to participate in surveys, contests or sweepstakes (any of these a “Promotion”) via our Services.  If you participate in a Promotion we will request certain Personal Information from you.  We use the Personal Information you provide to us in these instances to administer your participation in the Promotion.  Participation in a Promotion is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information.

 

3.         Cookies.  Like many websites, we use “cookies” to collect information.  A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer’s hard disk for record-keeping purposes.  We use cookies for two purposes. First, we utilize persistent cookies to save your encrypted registration ID and login password for future logins to the Website as well as display preference settings (such as preferred language).  Second, we utilize session ID cookies to enable certain features of the Services, to better understand how you interact with the Services and to monitor aggregate usage by Modern Phoenix Users and web traffic routing on the Services.  Unlike persistent cookies, session cookies are deleted from your computer when you close your browser.  Persistent cookies can be removed at any time and from time to time by you, and you can also refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser.  That being said, some Modern Phoenix features are dependent on those cookies and may not function properly if disabled. See your web browser "Help" file to modify your cookie settings as you see fit.

Third party advertisers on the Services may also place or read cookies on your browser.  You can instruct your browser, by editing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit.  If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of the Website or all functionality of the Services.

We may also use “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs” or similar means (individually or collectively “Pixel Tags”) in connection with our Services to collect usage, demographic and geographical location data.  A Pixel Tag is an electronic image, often a single pixel that is ordinarily not visible to users and may be associated with cookies on a user’s hard drive. Pixel Tags allow us to count users who have visited certain pages of the Website, to deliver branded services and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns.

 

4.         Information Sharing and Disclosure.

 

Personal Information - Modern Phoenix Users.  When you register through the Website and submit your Personal Information to create a profile, Modern Phoenix Users will see your “Screen Name” (“Required User Identifiers”).  We may allow you can choose what other Personal Information you provide as part of your profile (“Other User Information”) and in some cases you can choose whether to share that information publicly on the Website by making selections in your profile.  Providing Other User Information is voluntary and should correlate with the degree of interaction you want to have with Modern Phoenix Users.  We recommend that you guard your anonymity and sensitive information.

Aggregate Information and Non-Identifying Information.  We may share aggregated information that includes your Personal Information, Non-Identifying Information and Log Data with third parties for industry analysis and demographic profiling and to deliver targeted advertising about other products and services.

Service Providers.  We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Services, to provide the Services on our behalf, to perform Website-related services or to assist us in analyzing how our Services are used (each a “Service Provider”).  The types of Service Providers we use include, without limitation, those that provide the following types of services: credit card processing, accounting, customer relationship management, Website maintenance, notification services, database management and web analytics.  These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.

Third Parties to whom you Disclose Information.  Modern Phoenix does not and cannot control the privacy policies of third parties, and therefore you are subject to the privacy policies of any third parties to whom you disclose your information.  This Privacy Notice only addresses the use and disclosure of information that Modern Phoenix collects from you or that you disclose to us.  To the extent you provide your personal information to any third party, including any third parties that you may access through the Modern Phoenix Website and/or Services, we strongly encourage you to carefully read, consider and agree with such parties’ terms and policies before doing so.

 

Advertisers.  Modern Phoenix allows other companies, called third-party ad servers or ad networks, to serve advertisements within the Modern Phoenix Service. These third-party ad servers or ad networks may use technology to send, directly to your browser, the advertisements that appear within the Modern Phoenix Service and they automatically receive your IP Address and other log file information when this happens.  Such third-party ad servers may also use other technologies (such as cookies, javascript, or web beacons) to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalize their advertising content.

Modern Phoenix may provide your personally identifiable information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent.  However, please note that if an advertiser asks Modern Phoenix to show an advertisement to a certain audience or audience segment and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience that they were trying to reach.  You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party ad servers or ad networks. This Privacy Policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, such other advertisers or websites.  Modern Phoenix reserves the right the add or remove third-party ad networks or ad servers in its discretion and Modern Phoenix may not at all times list such updated ad network or ad server partners in this Privacy Policy.

Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement.  Modern Phoenix cooperates with government and law enforcement officials or private parties to enforce and comply with the law.  We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (including but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of Modern Phoenix or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop any illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity.

Business Transfers.  Modern Phoenix may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets, including your Personal Information, in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets or in the event of bankruptcy.  If Modern Phoenix becomes involved in a merger, acquisition, reorganization or any form of sale of some or all of its assets, we will provide notice to you before your Personal Information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

5.         Changing or Deleting Your Information.  All Modern Phoenix Users may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information by contacting us.  If you completely delete all such information, then your account may become deactivated.  If you would like us to delete your record in our system, please contact us and we will attempt to accommodate your request.  See below for privacy contact information.

 

6.         Security.  Modern Phoenix is very concerned with safeguarding your information.  We employ reasonable physical, technological, and administrative security measures and attempt to ensure they are applicable under the circumstances.  No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however.  Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.  Anything shared on the Internet and with Modern Phoenix is at the sole risk of each visitor and user.  We encourage you to keep your given password confidential and advise us immediately if you believe your account, password or other given information has been misused or otherwise misappropriated. (Please also see applicable portions of the Terms of Service.)

 

7.         Links to Other Websites.  The Website and Services contain links to other websites.  If you choose to visit an advertiser by “clicking on” a banner ad or other type of advertisement, or click on another third-party link, you will be directed to that third party’s website.  The fact that we link to a website or present a banner ad or other type of advertisement is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices.  We do not exercise control over third party websites.  These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you.  This Privacy Policy addresses the use and disclosure of information that we collect from you through our Services.  Other Websites follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them.  We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit.

 

8.         Our Policy Toward Children.  IF YOU ARE UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE, THEN PLEASE DO NOT USE OR ACCESS THE MODERN PHOENIX SERVICE AT ANY TIME OR IN ANY MANNER.  Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important.  For that reason, Modern Phoenix does not knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information from persons under 13 years-of-age.  If Modern Phoenix learns that personally-identifiable information of persons less than 13-years-of-age has been collected on or through the Modern Phoenix Service, then Modern Phoenix will take the appropriate steps to delete this information.  If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under 13 who has become a Modern Phoenix Service User, then please contact Modern Phoenix at support@ModernPhoenix.net to have that child's account terminated and information deleted.

9.         Changes and Updates to this Privacy Policy.  This Privacy Policy may be revised periodically without further notice to you and this will be reflected by the "Last Updated" date found at the bottom of this page.  Please revisit this page to stay aware of any changes. In general, we only use your personal information in the manner described in the Privacy Policy in effect when we received that personal information.  Your continued use of the Modern Phoenix Service constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any future revisions.

For revisions to this Privacy Policy that may be materially less restrictive on our use or disclosure of personal information you have provided to us, we will make reasonable efforts to notify you and obtain your consent before implementing revisions with respect to such information.
