The New Internet protects against tracking and profiling which online advertisers use for personalized marketing.  Removing this unsolicited advertising helps to provide a cleaner user experience and maintains the ownership and control of personal information in the hands of our users.  Any advertising which may be displayed would include sponsored links or other non-personalized ads which will not attributed to any particular user. 

Collection and Use of Your Personal Information

The security of your personal information is important to us, so please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through public message boards, apps, this information may be collected and used by others.  For example, if you interact with other users or register through a Third-Party Social Media Service, your contacts on the Third-Party Social Media Service may see your name, profile, pictures and description of your activity.  Similarly, other users will be able to view descriptions of your activity, communicate with you and view your profile.

To be perfectly clear, we do not collect any personal information about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us.  This includes of you elect to use certain products or services available on the website such as: (a) registering for an account or verified account on our website or app's; (b) entering a sweepstakes or contest sponsored by us or one of our partners; (c) signing up for special offers from selected third parties; (d) sending us an email message; (e) submitting your credit card or other payment information when ordering and purchasing products and services on our app or site.  We will use your information for, but not limited to, communicating with you in relation to our app, our services and/or our products you have requested from us. 

 

Also, information about your computer, phone or connected hardware devices and software may be automatically collected by us for the operation of our website(s) and apps.  This usage data can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses.  When you access our services by or through a mobile device, we may collect certain information automatically, including, but not limited to, the type of mobile device you use, your mobile device unique ID, the IP address of your mobile device, your mobile operating system, unique device identifiers and other diagnostic data.

Again, this information is used for the operation of our service, to maintain quality and customer service for our website(s) and apps, and to provide general statistics regarding use of our website(s) and apps.​

The Forum

The New Internet provides a comment window which is layered on every webpage on the internet.  This Forum is available for free speech and positive discourse amongst the various TNI users and to allow the community a chance to debate and counter-argue any content posted on any webpage.  

In order to participate on the Forum you will be asked to register for an account or verified account.  The personal information provided is solely for operating the Forum and to provide customer service and support.  

Retention of Your Personal Information

Retention of any personal information will be only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy.  Such retention shall only be to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations (for example, if we are required to retain personal data to comply with applicable laws), resolve disputes, and enforce our legal agreements and policies.

Retention of usage data will be for internal analysis purposes.  This is generally for a short period of time, except when this data is used to strengthen the security or to improve the functionality of our services, or we are legally obligated to retain this data for longer time periods.

Please keep in mind that personal information may be processed on a decentralized network, such as on blockchain, and in any other places where the parties involved in the processing are located.  This means that this information may be transferred to — and maintained on — computer networks located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ than those from your jurisdiction.

 

Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer.

 

All reasonably necessary steps will be taken to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

 

Disclosure of Your Personal Information

We do not sell, rent or lease your contact information.

Under certain circumstances, we may be required to disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in response to valid requests by public authorities (e.g. a court or a government agency).

 

We may disclose your personal information in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:

  • Comply with a legal obligation

  • Protect and defend the rights or property of the Company

  • Prevent or investigate possible wrongdoing in connection with our service

  • Protect the personal safety of users of our service or the general public

  • Protect against legal liability

Security of Your Personal Information

The New Internet secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.   When personal information (such as a credit card number or driver’s license) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.

We strive to take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or alteration of your personal information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations inherent to the Internet which are beyond our control; and (b) security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through our website(s) and apps cannot be guaranteed.

 

Use of Cookies

We may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience.  A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server.  Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer.  Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time.  The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page.  For example, if you personalize our web pages, or register with us, a cookie helps to recall your specific information on subsequent visits.  This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on.  When you return to the same website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies.  While most web browsers automatically accept cookies, you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer.  However, if you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of some or parts of our service.

Children

The New Internet Children does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen.  If you are under the age of thirteen, you must ask your parent or guardian for permission to use our website(s) and apps.  If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of thirteen has interacted with our website(s) and apps without appropriate permission, please contact info@thenewnet.com and we will immediately make best efforts to address the issue and remove all related records as necessary.

Our service may contain links to other websites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third-party link, you will be directed to that third party's site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of every site you visit.
